I have problems when defining moving loads on continuous members. For Continuous Members 1 and 2, the initial directions are inverted, although they are displayed in the same direction.

Answer

All loads defined in RF‑MOVE / RSMOVE refer eventually to members. In our example, the member orientation against the orientation of the set of members is determined for Continuous Member 1. In Set of Members 2, however, the orientation of the set of member is the same as the member orientation.

You can easily compare both structures by selecting all members of Set of Members 1 and changing the member orientation by using the function shown in Figure 01 below, for example. Then, it is necessary to generate the moving loads again.
