[NRVR-Members] Adding Nose Weight in OpenRocket

Honestly.. I'm still getting used to OpenRocket for doing actual design tweaking.. and am simply trying to add nose weight to shift my CG up on a kit I'm flying tomorrow and am having a bit of a problem getting it to adjust my actual CG.

I've added the weight (16oz as a test), and tinkered with the mass override.. but can't get the CG to actually shift. Is there some magic button somewhere that "applies" it to the new CG calculation? I even played with the override CG buttons (though that needs to be a DEPENDANT variable.. I don't want to SET it).. but still can't get the CG to budge.



What am I doing wrong in OpenRocket? The wiki docs are not that informative.
