Is it possible to adapt free loads after generation?

After generation of a free load, it seems like it cannot be adapted any more. This generation is executed via the action Generate loads or during the calculation of the project. An original free load is shown in green, while a generated free load is shown in orange or grey.

When a generated free load is selected, it seems like it is not adaptable any more – all of the properties are shown in light grey:

But at the bottom of the Properties menu the action ‘Display original load’ appears. Click on the [>>>] button to show the original input of the free load again. The different parameters can always be adapted in the Properties menu of the original load.

Another option is described below:
After generation or calculation, by default only the generated loads are displayed. It can be changed via a right mouse click in the screen Set view parameters for all > Loads/Masses > Display loads > Generators = Original + Generated.

Original + generated load

Both types of loads are then displayed at the same time. Now the original load can be selected as well, and its properties can be changed.
