To bypass slendeness limit check for tension should we put "-1" or "1"
Anway, both seems not working.Whatever, i give it is checking ratio based on slenderness limit (400) for tension.
To bypass slenderness limit check for tension we should put "-1" for Tmain and it is working fine, Can you please upload your file where you are facing difficulties.
Thanks & regards,

this happens for a tension only member, (member 60), which is a bracing, where tension is almost zero. if we have some tension in the member it takes the TMAIN correctly (see member 61)
It is a special kind of case as the member is having zero force. If you are interested to bypass slenderness check for this member, you may assign MAIN -1 for that member. Tmain is used for tension members & Main is used for compression member. In this way you will be able to get the desired result.

Can we use TMAIN and MAIN for the same member so that it will bypass both compression and tension slenderness checks?
Yes you can do that.
