This panel is to be used to specify dimension one by one for each point on
How to use:
When this panel is shown with no dimension data, you can enter the lines of data one by one. You must press [Save] button to record the entry in DynaRod.
There are several functions to adjust the taper as follows;
Important: In either case, user need to press [Save] button to save the entry or the changes into DynaRod.

Taper data in DynaRod
DynaRod is maintaining the following two kinds of taper data.
To record Irregular Points/Dimensions
DynaRod can accept irregular Point specifications on Point fields.
Basically the panel shows the point figures based on the specification of PF
As the Dimension Input panel on [New Rod] specification does not have [propagate] button, the entered irregular points/dimensions are recorded here and carried over to [Change Spec.] or [Rod Parts] panel for propagation to 1" taper.
So the clever usage of irregular input is to use [New Rod] entry to enter a straight taper once. Then move to [Change Spec.], open Dimension Input tab, erase the existing entries and enter irregular taper and propagate.
In any case, the entered taper numbers are forced to be propagated at [Rod Parts] function to create internal 1" taper. This is one of the reason why [Rod Parts] must be executed prior to the following calculations.
