Area: Layout and Data Input


A model was created in older version of the software using engineering libraries, but when the model is opened in a newer version of the software it contains incorrect component values.
For example, this has happened for catch basin inlet throat angles. The inlets were added to the model using an engineering library.
That engineering library, originally created in the older version of the software, still contains the correct values when added in the latest version.


1. Go to: Components > Catalog > Engineering Libraries.
2. Add the engineering library that was originally used to add the component.
3. Go to: Components > Catalog > Inlet Catalog (or the catalog corresponding to the incorrect value).
4. Select the inlet, click the Synchronization Options icon at the top, then click Synchronize from Library. (Make sure not to click "Synchronize to library"). Repeat for all inlets used in the model.
