Good deal, Kai.  Can't wait to try it out!  Thanks for all of your hard work!
I've consumed all of my home brew and still can't relax!  Now what!

Used this for my BoPils on Monday but just got around to crunching the numbers a little tonight.  Predicted mash pH based on the spreadsheet was 5.48 at 77F (standard per the spreadsheet notes).  Actual measured mash pH was 5.6 at around 60F.  Close enough for me and I'll measure at 77F going forward.

I noticed in the "Resulting Water Profile" section that no matter what I select from the drop down (strike water or overall water) it doesn't change anything.

Also, it still seems to be adding them to the sparge water even when I select salts added to "mash only".  At least in the Amounts to be Added section. 

Edit - Ah, I only had "mash only" checked on the basic tab.  You need to have "mash only" checked on the advance tab.

Yes, you found the problem. There was a disconnect between the basic and the advanced sheet. I fixed this and now it should work.
