How account for a changing AA in FIREcalc?

New to the board. Impressed with it and FIRECalc.

WRT FIREcalc what is the best way to factor in a gradually changing asset allocation over the years? (eg hold more bonds and fewer equities as time rolls forward)

-"Total market" asks for Percentage of your portfolio that is in equities; but that % appears to be static (rebalanced).
-"Mixed Portfolio" also appears to have static AA.

-What is the asset allocation of "A portfolio with consistent annual market growth"

-It appears that the "portfolio with random performance" is meant to yield a different set of results each time you run the program (a different set of random results each time??

Thanks in advance,
