Default ForeFlight Weight and Balance

Hello, I'm new to Vans, and picking up my new to me RV 7A at the end of the month. Was trying to enter all the parameters for Foreflight Weight and Balance off of Sample W&B from other RV-7A's ( I know it will have to be edited when I have the aircraft specific numbers) and keep getting errors. I do have the pro version and it was working for the C172N I flew as a student. Any advice would be much appreciated

Default Weight & Balance

I have a question, the November 9 2007 Service letter talks about the weight on the nose gear with forward CG and recommends you try to stay within the limits of the charts (nosewheel load) given in this letter. If you use this you will have a sloped weight and balance envelope similar to other aircraft I am familiar with.
Am I missing something here?
