STAAD.Pro Connect Edition Update 2 crashes when entering certain types of values for beam offsets
Steps to Reproduce
Open any STAAD.Pro model.
Try to define a beam offset with the following parameters
Location : START
Direction : Global
Offset : Y =-1.234 (ft)
Immediately after defining the value, click on another cell and the value shows up in the dialog box as 1.239999999 and the software crashes.
When offset values are entered as integers like 1,2 3 etc. it works. When offset values <1 like 0.99, 0.25, 0.875 are used, it works. However something like 1.01, 1.1 results in the crash.
For offsets whose values are integers ( like 1, 2, 3 etc.) and for those having values less than 1 ( like 0.25, 0.875, 0.99 ... ), the usual procedure using the GUI would work. If you need to specify any offsets having values like 1.1, 2.3 etc. use the STAAD.Pro editor for the time being as shown next
17 START 0 -1.234 0
17 END 0 -1.234 0
Once the offsets are defined, the file can be processed as usual.
The problem will be addressed in the STAAD.Pro Connect Edition Update 3.
