Are Global Variables and Custom Properties the same thing to SW?
I received this error message when trying to create a Custom Property "LENGTH":
"A Global Variable with this name already exists. Adding a Global Variable with this name would cause a name conflict that may cause invalid equation results."
I had just created a GV "LENGTH" and wanted to link it to a CP named "LENGTH", but it wouldn't let me.
Which is weird because I had just done this in another model.
So I checked my workflow and sure enough if you add them in the wrong order SW freaks out.
I have successfully added both by adding the CP first, then the GV, and then linking the CP to the GV.
I thought I could save a step by adding the GV, then adding the CP and linking it to the GV right away, but NOPE! SW hates that idea.
