Compress variable definitions

Compress variable definitions

Does a full listing of variables used in Compress exist anywhere?  I find myself looking through calc errors trying to find a thickness or a ratio to change to alleviate the error, but I cannot find said thickness or ratio defined anywhere in the documentation or calculations, and thus, I do not know what to change.  I don't like to enter the software and start changing design parameters somewhat blindly until the error goes away...

Granted, I am not the one usually entering production vessels.  With the economic situation, I have had to take some of the quoting responsibility...which has me building vessels in Compress occasionally.  Thus, I would call myself an experienced user, but by no means an expert, so forgive me if this request sounds 'off' in any way.

Fitter, happier, more productive
