I have a bunch of graphs in an Illustrator document. All of them are tagged and have been exported to an XML document. I want to change the numbers in the XML and re-import it to update the graphs with new numbers. When I click ‘load variable library’, the graphs update like they should, but the numbers are incorrect. Everything gets rounded down: 3,195 becomes 3.00; 4,080 becomes 4.00; 11,568 becomes 11.00.
Has anyone had this experience before?
Apparently the problem arose because I had commas in the data that I was importing. Illustrator read those as decimals for some reason.
Originally, the data in my XML looked like this:
<graph1> <data numDataColumns="9"> <values> <row> <value key="name"></value> <value>3,195</value> [when imported, became 3.00] <value>4,819</value> [became 4.00] <value>10,490</value> [became 10.00] <value>2,324</value> [became 2.00] </row> </values> </data> </graph1>
Removing the comma solved the problem.
<graph1> <data numDataColumns="9"> <values> <row> <value key="name"></value> <value>3195</value> <value>4819</value> <value>10490</value> <value>2324</value> </row> </values> </data> </graph1>
