    If you are using the original FreeShip...this is not available. You must download FreeShipPlus. Freeship does not have the SSD and the screen that you show. Therein perhaps lies the confusion.

    Yes, so I discovered! Oddly, I thought I had created a post thanking Daquiri and noting the problem, but it somehow vanished into cyberspace. The lack of SSD/DSD curves is not a big problem however, as it is simple to make manual corrections. Thanks to both of you for the help!

    Oh, I thought indeed we were talking about Freeship+ .
    I never understood what's the difference between the two anyways...

    FreeShip 2.6 is the last version of the original by Martijn...FreeShip+ is a continuation with additional features added by Victor T...mainly in the resistance area but also with stability as we can see.
