Default Flitch beam specification

Hi, I'm new to the forum. I've just downloaded the superbeam program to try it and tried a few things which I've mostly found OK. However, when I tried calculating the size of a flitch beam for a certain span and load it gives a solution as 63 x 100 C24 + 8 x 90 flitch plate. This is ambiguous. Does it mean two pieces each 63 wide, or two pieces with a total width of 63mm, i.e. 2 No 32 x 100? I would guess the latter, but surely the program could be improved here to give a precise result.
