Why does LabChart 8 for Windows become unresponsive when importing a text file?

This could be related to a known issue in LabChart 8 for Windows versions 8.0.4 and earlier, which will be corrected in a future software release.  To work around the issue, one of the following steps will need to be taken:


  1. Remove the UnitName= header information line from the text file being imported, and then accomplish a Units Conversion on the data after the import, or
  2. Add the TopValue= and BottomValue= header information to the text file before attempting to import it.

For more information about the informational text file header lines mentioned above, please review the LabChart Help menu topic titled "Text file format for importing."
