Question Live & Dead load Factors (PS 7)

How do I set up these factors, if I open an old or make a new file, the factor of safety is not added.
Is this intended?

Default Re: Live & Dead load Factors (PS 7)

Yes, the factoring is done automatically. You see this in the numbers printed immediately below the beam loads, e.g.

Unfactored reactions (kN)  Total:	 ̅4̅0̅.̅0̅0̅	 ̅4̅0̅.̅0̅0̅
	Dead:                            20.00   20.00
	Live:                            20.00   20.00
	Factored reactions:              60.00   60.00

Total load: 80.00/120.00 kN  Unfactored/Factored
Total dead load is 40kN, live load 40kN. When factored this becomes 40 x 1.4 + 40 x 1.6 = 120kN, Likewise reactions, 20 x 1.4 + 20 x 1.6 = 60kN.
