Load can not be generated from load panel

When a panel is used to generate linear loads on beams from surface loads, you can choose for one transfer direction only (X or Y) or for both directions (X and Y).

When user chooses only one direction, then the surface load is transfered to all beams which are perpendiculare to that direction.

The direction is clearly shown using an arrow on the panel:

In the panel setting, a value of maximum angle for load transfer can be input. The default for this value is 5 degrees:

When the beams are not perpendicular to the panel direction and the angle is higher than the Max. angle for transfer, then the load is not generated by the program. The user has to adapt the above parareter to deal with this situation:
