I’ve recently discovered that the contents of my 20 or so P6 permanent variables did not survive the journey to PX, and although they are all there, they haven’t been initialised. This is also true for all the Panorama permanent variables, which didn’t surprise me so much as I’m aware we have to redo the page and print settings.
The course material strongly suggests that their contents transfer, although neither of the slides listing what does and doesn’t transfer actually contain permanent variables and I don’t think Jim actually stated it either. None of them contained binary data so far as I know, but one did contain a dictionary.
I just converted a small test file with text in one permanent variable and it did transfer the contents of the variable successfully.
I’ve rather laboriously copied their data across from P6 and initialised each of the 20 one by one in PX, but I’ll have to do this quite a few more times, so I’d like to know how to get it to happen properly during the conversion.
