It allows you to assign point loads to selected members in the model.  You must select a load case to which the point loads belong.  Point loads may be specified in either the local or global coordinate system.  The loads are point forces in the X, Y, or Z direction if radio button “X”, “Y”, or “Z” is selected.  The loads are point moments in the X, Y, or Z direction if radio button “OX”, “OY”, or “OZ” is selected.  The load magnitude may be any non-zero value.  The load distance is the ratio of the load location (measured from the member start) to the member length.  A distance of 0.5 places the load at the middle of each selected member.
