FIRECalc question

So I've been fooling with firecalc but only in it's simplest form. Today I got a little more into the various ways you can set it up. When it says it's says it's set up to account for inflation, does that mean if say, I put in a starting portfolio of $1M and spending of $70K a year it will raise that $70K a year 3% for inflation?So the first year i draw out $70K, then the next year I can take out $72K and on and on?

Yes, but you can define how it changes spending on the Spending Models tab along the top. The default assumption inflates spending input on the Start Here tab for CPI.
