Displacement boundary condition?

Hey, I try to start using FE simulation tool in assembly. Looks good, but I really miss a way to define a displacement (instead of force) as a boundary condition. Is there a way to do this? Is it hidden somewhere? Or is it planned to be added in a few days...?
Thanks for your help.

    Philippe, displacement based boundary conditions are not supported currently - we have it in our future plans to address.

    I would like this also.

    I've been using OS FEA a lot and liking it.

    100% needed, although i like what is in it already, i cannot use this for a lot of the work i do as in many cases i want to assess the deformed shape at a defined displacement and not the other way around... i would think its almost more useful for me than a set force or stress BC....
