Question Weird Units

Hi all

Not sure if I am going mad but doing column calcs in Superbeam today (first time I've done columns for a while) and I'm getting units of "KIP-IN" appearing.

Everything else is metric so why these antiquated things.

Any thoughts gratefully received.

Known issue: kip-in is a USA unit (kip is a kilopound) - this will be fixed in the next release. The calculations are correct, it's just the unit is given incorrectly

This is now fixed in SuperBeam 4.57e and ProSteel 5.41e just released and available as an update via the Miscellaneous, Check for Updates option in each program.
