Tried STAAD in its Release 21W incarnation and it was the devil then too.
Dropped using it after one terrible experience that sounds remarkably like
yours. Possibly the same bugs???

Have any of you, upon using it, remarked to yourself, as I have done the
entire eight hours just past, that this is the most BUG-RIDDEN piece of ****
that you've ever used in your lives?
Great "looking" interface. Only problem is, the thing changes from Jekyll to
Hyde with the click of a mouse!
Sorry, I'm just incredibly frustrated. Terrible to have to depend on a
"mission critical" app like this, knowing you've got a critical client
meeting tomorrow morning, and you're at the office at 11:00 P.M. trying to
get the **** analysis to run on this ****.
Sorry for all the **** words, but I'm exhausted, cranky, and just about "up
to here" with STAAD.
Have a nice day.
