BEopt: What is the autosized heating capacity for heat pump?

When modeling an ASHP, it seems the only place that I can find the autosized heating capacity is to export the detailed report. However, this detailed report is only providing the heating capacity, not the heating (HP) and the heating (supplemental) capacity. How can I separate the two? Please advise.

Thank you,

See the explanation in the help file under Output > End Use Graph. "Note: For all heat pumps (i.e., air-source, ground-source, or mini-split), the cooling capacity reported is both the heating and cooling capacity of the heat pump itself. Any backup heat (e.g., supplemental heating for an air-source heat pump; electric resistance backup for a mini-split heat pump) will be the reported heating capacity."
