Record Formats


I just came across something that I have never really had to deal with before. My hunch is that it is file related but not sure.

When using the Speaker array tool or @C. Andrew Dunning 's Audio Array 2 tool and I import data from the "Bumpers L-Acoustics.vwx" file in the Vectorworks Library It does not convert the units correctly. The "Bumpers L-Acoustics.vwx" file units are Metric and the file I am working in is Imperial. The "Speakers L-Acoustics.vwx" is also in Metric and all of their data converts correctly with no issues. Can someone tell me if this is tool related or if the the "Bumpers L-Acoustics.vwx" file is not configured properly?


This is all being done in VW2019 on a new 2018 MacBook Pro.


Edit: For example when importing the data the 554mm bumper width, it comes into the new document at 554'.

Looks like the Bumpers have an old Record format attached.  the dimension fields should be Text and not Number.  if you change that in your file it should fix the issue till we can get an updated file out.
