Fruit being properly calculated for fermentable sugars

Hello,
Working on a Raspberry IPA and using 4#s of pureed raspberries added in Beersmith 2.0 as "Other" in a 6 gal batch.

Raspberries are added at 90% of fermentation completion so as to let the yeast eat the available sugars and not make the beer overly sweet.

And suggestions on calculating the sugar content as it relates to final ABV?

BeerSmith adds all fermentables added up to primary as part of the OG & ABV calculations. Anything added as secondary or at bottling is not calculated.

In BeerSmith 3, you should have the fruit in the fermentables database and the "type" should be fruit or juice, depending on what your using. If they're not already installed, you can find whole fruits, juices an and wine bases in add-ons.
