Anoying limitation of Code Aster

While trying to better understand CA, I did a simple structural analysis (the structure looks like a table) with CA, I set one AFFE_CHAR_MECA with the fixing of the points that contact the ground and PESANTEUR -9.81 @ (0,0,1) then added another AFFE with PESANTEUR 9.81 @ (1,0,0) just to see the structure react to a horizontal load.

I got the error message:

Le chargement contient plus d'une charge répartie.
Le calcul n'est pas possible pour les modèles de poutre

Which I remember Jean Piere mentioned in his book years ago!

how come we still have this limitation in CA, why is the reason this has not been fixed? Am I missing something?

Thanks in advance
