DESCRIPTION:

If a user specifies CONSTANTS or the MATERIAL command for a member which
does not exist, the CONSISTENCY CHECK phase of any analysis command
(STIFFNESS, DYNAMIC ANALYSIS, etc) does not inform the user that other
data such as MEMBER PROPERTIES or MEMBER INCIDENCES is missing for the
member which does not exist.

Example:

CONSTANTS
E 30000. ALL BUT MEM 1 101    $ MEM 101 NEVER EXISTS IN THE MODEL
...

STIFFNESS ANALYSIS (NO ERROR MESSAGE INDICATING THAT MEM 101 DOES
                         NOT EXIST)

The user can verify that the proper CONSTANTS have been assigned to
existing members with the PRINT MEMBER CONSTANTS command.

A problem does not exist if the user has used the ALL option of the
CONSTANTS or the MATERIAL commands intending for all members to have the
same constants.

DESCRIPTION:

If a user specifies a list of members, joints, or loads such as 'ABC01'
TO 'ABC05', GTSTRUDL will use the names 'ABC1', 'ABC2', 'ABC3', 'ABC4'
and 'ABC5' for the list.  This occurs because the list is broken up into
an alphanumeric prefix, 'ABC', and an integer suffix, 01 to 05.  However,
the integers 01, 02, 03, 04, and 05 are represented as 1,2,3,4 and 5.

This is explained in the User Manual under List Concepts in Section
2.1.2.2 of Volume 1.  An example such as the one above is given under
Possible Errors in Section 2.1.2.2.

DESCRIPTION

If a PAGE ON command is followed by a SAVE command, the resulting save
file will be corrupted and you will not be able to restore it later with
a RESTORE command.  Note the following example:

               PAGE ON
               .
               .
               .
               SAVE 'MYSAVFIL.SAV'

The save file MYSAVFIL.SAV will be corrupted and unusable.

You can work around the problem by giving the PAGE OFF command prior to
the SAVE command.  You can issue the PAGE ON command again following the
SAVE command:

               PAGE ON
               .
               .
               .
               PAGE OFF
               SAVE'MYSAVFIIL.SAV'
               PAGE ON
