On occasion, the Furniture Library Editor fails to import a furniture item. The process proceeds as usual, allwoing the user to browse to the desired item, the file [seemingly] is read, but the editor does not correctly extract the item from the definition.
Typically, the editor displays a new item line as if the model had been loaded, with the 'Name' field containing 'Model,' but with no icon. Double-clicking on this line opens an 'Edit Furniture' window, but with only the 'Creator' and 'Category' fields filled.
More rarely, the library editor goes through the motions of importing an item and then returns to the top-level library view without displaying even the corrupted item.
Work-around: Highlight the corrupt item and select 'delete.' Re-import the item again. If the item is a valid firniture item, it will usually load correctly on the second or third attempt.
Note: This ticket describes attempts to import Wavefront (OBJ) models only.
