Can't get XYZ to work

I've got a Hog 1000 and I'm trying to get the XYZ function to work. I feel like I've done everything correctly but when I hit Position more than once it never flips to XYZ coordinates.

I created the 4 position palettes, hit set twice to set them as the 4 cal points. I then hit select and calibrate, the consoles chews on it for a bit and then it says complete.

I then select some of my lights, hit position twice but all I ever get is Intensity, Pan and Tilt.

Is there something special like XYZ is restricted to only certain kinds of fixtures?

    Well I think I found my issue after further digging through the manual.

    My fixtures use the old lib.lib file and are missing the deflection, offset, and movement parameters.

    I know editing existing profiles can be unpredictable, can these settings be added to an existing fixture profile or will it break the fixture/show.

    Hey LightGuy48,

    it should be possible to alter/add these parameters to the fixture profile. For safety: keep a backup of your show on a separate disk.
