yes, i use the load manager and then save then i start the FS

if you are using FSpax, i don’t know why, but the level D won’t accept any of the high ZFW's it gives when you are fully loaded.
well, i guess it won't matter which one you put 1st, as long as it's the GW minus the Fuel, so the system will do that, if you put the GW 1st, it'll deduct the fuel and it comes the ZFW, and if you put the ZFW it'll add the fuel and it'll be GW
and no I’m not using the FSPAX.
And I believe I figured out the problem, if you go the load manager, and look up there, a drop down list of select basic aircraft configuration, it shows empty, short haul and long haul flight.
If you set it up to empty or short haul, the configuration will be set for a certain weight, and if you exceed that, it won’t take your GW or ZFW that you put in, it might sound weird, cause you’ll be looking to your payload and everything looks just fine, and nothing is overweight, that’s true, but it’s not the configuration that you selected from the basic aircraft configuration. So to skip that from happening all the times, and put you completely in control of managing your Payload and fuel, it should be set on Long Haul flight, like that, the configuration, will be set for the MTOW, once you do that, you can add as much fuel and payload as you can, as long as it’ won’t exceed the MTOW and for sure, it won’t be more than the maximum landing weight at your destination.
I appreciate all your help guys
Fly safe and have fun
