Scenery Editor pc2 not importing

Post by decaff_42 » Thu Mar 02, 2017 4:33 am

Operating System: Mac OSX 10.11.3
Scenery Editor Version: 20150202 and 20130416

Issue:
Trying to import a .pc2 file and the file dialog does not let me select a .pc2 file, only .fld files. Per the Help File that come with Scenery editor it states:
Importing from an External File
You can import a scenery item from an external file. The file types you can import are .PC2 file (Map), .TER file (Elevation Grid), .FLD file (Child Scenery), and .YFS file (Ground Object configuration.) To import a file, select "File" -> "Import" -> "Map", "Elevation Grid", "Scenery", or "YFS." Then, specify the filename in the file dialog.
Workpath:
File -> Import Map -> Open File Dialog

(^^^ Note that the .pc2 files are greyed out while the .fld files are in black)


Can anyone on Mac verify that this problem exists for them?

Well, here is a way how import PC2.

1) Run SceneryEditor ver.20150202

2) Go to "File" -> "Import Map" -> (choose location and press SPACE key to activate opening dialog)

3) In bottom of opening dialog (where you can see ".fld" string) choose extension ending as "*.*" (that will show all filetypes in selection dialog) and navigate to needed PC2-file, select it and press "Open" tab. Thats all! ))

I'm glad you confirmed that it works on Linux, however the dialog window I screenshot shows that you cannot select the extension in this particular dialog on Mac OSX.
