Forcing function time series of type 2 do not import correctly

Description

There still is a problem with the time series import for forcing functions (Type 2). They import as 1 in v6.0.0406. They will stay in if they are pasted in.

During import time series of type 2 are physically converted to forcing functions. They are not kept as time series.

Oh, they stay when pasted in?! We have to assess if pasted in Time Series of type 2 still work as in EwE5. EwE6 should only work with forcing functions, and should NOT apply time series of type 2 as EwE5 did.

This needs to be assessed.

I have changed the title of the bug report

Argh, Cathy set me straight: the resulting FF has values of all 1, loosing the initial TS values.

Assessed. In attached image the FF is shown as imported. The original TS offered 50 years worth of data. After this 50 years an original value of 1, indicating no forcing effect, is assumed.

Now, the question remains whether this is conceptually correct...

  • Resolution set to not an issue

The bug here is that the EwE6 interface still allows users to define TS of type two, even though this type is only meaningful at TS import.
