Combined Salt Additionas

With BeerSmith 2, I used the water tool to determine salt additions to my water to match the profiles I wanted. I then saved the additions to that profile and when I added the quantity of water I needed to my recipe, it added the salts needed for that volume. I like that in BeerSmith 3 that tool is worked into the recipe as its own tab. However, I like to heat up all my brewing liquor at once, but it breaks the salts up into 'Mash' and 'Sparge' additions. Is there an option I am missing to have the salt additions listed for the full volume of water needed, rather than broken up by mash and sparge?

I know I could just add these together myself, which is exactly what I'll do if the answer to my question is no, but let's face it, I'm lazy!
