How can we improve Design Master?

Support feeder calcs for track lighting

See NEC 220.43(B). The connected load for the branch circuit is the sum of the wattage of the connected light fixtures. The demand load is an additional 150VA per foot. I would like a place to enter the number of feet of track on a branch circuit so the demand load is calculated correctly in the load summary. We currently accomplish this through a 'Variable Caclulated Load', but it might be more intuitive if there is a 'Length Variable Demand' option. Thank you.

    Similar to this, or in addition to, if there was a way to make the VA/Watts variable and dependant on a length variable, that would make variable length fixtures and led strip lighting easier to work with.
