Is it necessary to reset boilOff in BeerSmith when using a condenser lid on the boil kettle? If so, what factors do I take into account?

You'll need to compare the boiloff with the condenser and without to determine what, if any, change you need to make. It will vary from system to system.

That becomes a change in your equipment profile. You will need to measure and change your boil off.
If you?re stressing over homebrewing, you?re doing something wrong.
