Default Re: Saving prosteel as demo

The demo version steel section library only includes sections with a rolling weight of 50kg/m or less. If you load a calculation produced by the full version which uses a larger section into the demo version, the section won't be found, thus the error.

Re doing the splice design makes the calculation window go blank, I can't reproduce this here, but your report is noted.

Re code compliance, was this with reference to splice calculations in particular, or relating to BS5950 which has now officially been replaced by Eurocode 3, though it's likely to remain in use for a good while yet. See our web page http://www.superbeam.co.uk/bs449.htm - it's written with particular reference to BS449, but now also applies to BS5950.
