Automatic Calculation of Weight Groups as Percentage of other Weight Groups
In some cases it may be desirable to have a weight group calculate itself automatically based on another weight group or based on several weight groups. An example of this would be to have a margin group calculate its own weight as 5% of the lightship weight. This is possible to achieve by using the Weight Group Percentage Setting window. This window is opened from ShipWeight main window menu Wgt.Grp > Percentage setting…
