I received the ‘Unacceptable list separator’ error while trying to:
- load a family from file into a project, and
- load types into the family from a Type Catalog.
I assumed the problem was to do with Type Catalog. The family I was trying to load was from the ‘Australia’ default content –
To fix this issue I followed these steps:
- Open the Family
- Export the Types to a Type Catalog file. The exported Type Catalog should only include one type, but the syntax should be correct…
- Open the exported Type Catalog in Excel – as a comma-delimited file
- Open the ORIGINAL Type Catalog in Excel – as a comma-delimited file
- Copy the fields from the ‘Original’ default Type Catalog into your new ‘fixed’ Type Catalog (there may be more columns in the ‘fixed’ version, just Auto-Fill the other fields as necessary)
- In Excel, save the ‘fixed’ version as:
Other Formats – CSV (MS-DOS)
- After closing the file, rename it so that .TXT is its extension.
- Use this fixed Type Catalog to load all of the types into the opened Family.
