If you’ve invested a lot of time into customizing worksheets in Parashara’s Light 7, and want to avoid repeating that work, you can transfer these worksheets directly into PL 9.
It can be done at any time, either at first install or at a later date.

Requirements: Parashara’s Light 7 must be installed in one of the following locations: C:/Geovision/PL7
D:/Geovision/PL7

The custom worksheet must have been given a name. To check if it has a name, go to the worksheet in PL 7. If the worksheet title has a number (example: 299. #299), the worksheet hasn’t been given a name. To give it a name, click on the worksheet title in the upper right hand corner.
The Worksheet Properties menu will pop up. Enter a new name in the Title text box and click OK. Close PL7 before importing the chart into PL9.

Limitations: Only the worksheet layout will be imported. Calculation changes, font changes, or anything else changed in the Options menu will need to be manually re-set.

Recommendations:
If you’ve only made minute changes to a worksheet, it will take the same amount of time to import as it will to make those simple adjustments.
This feature is of most use if you’ve spent significant time (over 10 minutes) creating a custom worksheet layout.

How to use this feature:
1. Navigate to the worksheet where you’d like to import your customized worksheet. This can be done by using the up and down arrow keys and selecting a worksheet under one of the toolbar menu icons or from the Charts drop down menu at the top. We suggest you use one of the empty worksheets entitled “unused” – but any worksheet will work.
