Recently, due some difficulties using the project, I implemented a crazy, but very useful idea. What happened was that I needed to add an item to an existing structure.

Normally I need to select one by one and add the structure size to calculate the Index (offset) of each one. That when it was not necessary to use the calculator to do the calculation.
