Sorry if this question has been asked already (I tried searching), our office is new to Land F/X. Our office convention is to have an area of subsurface drip be center fed by the valve and graphically show laterals branching off from the central lateral to either end of the drip area. I'm trying to do this in F/X but when I go to size the laterals the software chooses one run of lateral as the only pathway for the water. So if I check the flows in any of the other legs for that drip area the flow is 0.0 gpm. Is there a work around or can F/X only process a single leg for a drip area and will just ignore the other legs? Thanks in advance for any help.

Hussein, Not a problem, that is what we are here for! As for current functionality of the software, the system is only going to look at the first pipe fitting that was drawn into the drip area. This was done intentionally since we currently do not handle the header/footer layout. However, this is already on our radar and we plan to take a look at adding further code that will look at how many pipe ends land within a given area and split the flow up appropriately, it's just a bit more complicated than it might seem. So for now, Land F/X will only process one leg for a drip area and ignore the rest.
