I am using SAP2000 7.12 Student version. I am in trouble with "Frame Element Data" table. While designing of a frame, at the last automatically length of the frames change for example length of frame section or beam is 16 meter. I have designed as it is, but at the end of the analysis, when I open "Frame Element Data" tables, I saw 0.406 instead of 16 meters. Each time I start from the beginning and I waste my time. Please help me or direct me to anyone that can explain me preferences of this version that why the dimensions are like that.

The topic is pretty large and contains viable information that can be used to get a clear overview about the operations you're doing or needing.
