Description I found a bug in the timetable editor in beta version and in current version. This is a strange one and only happens with a specific rule setting.

In Holland we have at the Nationals 1/8 onroad a rule setting as follows:
No Christmas tree anymore but A,B,C finals with move-up’s.

In all finals will be driven with 10 drivers. But the first 8 are in A, second 8 in B etcetera.
The first two drivers of each final will move-up to the next final.
Ok, now in the upcoming second race for the nationals ( upcoming weekend) we have 50 drivers.
So it should be a race with up to F final yes? J

1 to 8 in A
9 to 16 in B
17 to 24 in C
25 to 32 in D
33 to 40 in E
And 41 to 50 in F final.

If I do a check of a final arrangement, ( option marked in final arrangement tab/screen: "Include not qualified Pilots for Arrangement".) the arrangement is perfect ! Not a thing wrong with it, RCM is working like a Swiss clock.

Now I am making a timetable, but in the timetable editor, there is no F final visible. So I cannot place this one into the timetable. Of course I can make a empty rule and so on. But this is not the way RCM should work with this ! So that could be a problem for some other users to make a good timetable. I have resolved this "bug", by adding a driver to the event but not in the arrangement. Now RCM sees 51 drivers. Now RCM makes in the arrangement also a G final in the checkup. Of course when the event is started RCM will see that there are no 51 but 50 drivers and so he will not make that G final. But what he does now "correct", is the timetable with a F final run. So now we CAN make a correct timetable.
