Format Data Pop Up

Recommended Posts

Hi All


I am getting this pop up every time I try to insert a new fixture in to my drawing. If I renumber it I can carry on with what I am doing.


Any idea why this is occurring. It is only happening on this particular drawing and I can't seem to locate the issue..


thanks in advance

Someone has attached a record named "Data" to all the symbols in your library.

Look in the Resource Manager of your current drawing for a folder named "Data". Contrary to recommendation in the dialog, rename the "Data" folder in your current document.

Once you do this you should be able to import the symbols without the warning.


Your other option is to change or remove the "Data" record from the symbols in your resource file before you import them.
