[SOLVED] Property missing

ReignBough

Assuming that there is initially no property on Property Manager.
  •  
  • Create a property on Property Manager.
  •  
  • Export the created property.
  •  
  • Create a scheme/schedule with criteria of the created property.
  •  
  • Delete the create property on Property Manager.
  •  
  • Import the exported property.
  •  
  • Open schedule. The criteria (with property) is now "Missing".
Why?

Thanks stefan.

I am trying to create add-on that uses the property. I saved the GUID of the property on a file. I did the process above except that the scheme is the file I created. That's why I found that this is happening on the scheme.

I already created a work around with this problem.

This is not a developer question, but here it goes:

When you export a property in a schedule to Excel, there is a hidden column with the internal Property ID.

When you delete the Property, it is gone together with the ID.

When you re-import the schedule, ARCHICAD cannot map this property to something that doesn't exist anymore.

If you try to re-create the property, it'll have a different internal ID. So it is lost forever.

You may be able to export your properties to XML, edit the XML to re-enter the old guid and re-import the properties from the XML to re-create the same guid.

Hello,
Any improvement on that?
"You may be able to export your properties to XML, edit the XML to re-enter the old guid and re-import the properties from the XML to re-create the same guid."
