Default Beersmith with Extracts

I am brewing using Beersmith for full boil extract batches. I have configured my equipment under the options menu to try to match my brewpot. I seem to be running into problems with the final volume of my batches every now and then and I think it is attributed to the volume of the malt extracts not being factored in. For instance, if I make a certain recipe and look at the required water for boiling, it does not change as I add or take away extract from the recipe. Is there any way for Beersmith to factor the displacement of LME based on its weight? Am I missing something?
Thanks guys!

The hops juxtaposed against the horseradish was very nice, though possibly a touch out of the style guidelines.
