Traffic shaper wizard uses decimals instead of whole numbers
After using traffic shaper wizard when you completed it you can get decimals in "Max bandwidth for queue" and other values also, that causes shaper to malfunction and ignore those queues or when you want to change something in queue settings this causes error messages in pfsense. The solution is to use WHOLE numbers instead of decimals.

Would you please clarify for me?
Does the problem occur when you enter decimals in the wizard, or when values you enter in the wizard result in decimals after calculation?
Can you provide step by step instructions to reproduce please? Particularly "when you want to change something in queue settings this causes error messages in pfsense"

Yes, calculated values.
Run wizard, select Multiple Lan/Wan traffic_shaper_wizard_multi_all.xml
LAN/WAN number 1/1
Setup connection speed and scheduler information for interface LAN #1:
Setup connection speed and scheduler information for interface WAN#1:
Voice over IP
Upload = download = 20 Mbit/s
Peer to Peer networking
Enable "Lower priority of Peer-to-Peer traffic"
Enable "p2pCatchAll" (bandwidth 15%)
skip everything to finish pressing next all the time.
After reloading filters, go to wan queue "qACK", under Service Curve (sc) you should see
bandwidth 15.666%, do not change anything, just try to press SAVE button.
15.666 value appears in config.xml:
