Heading parameter for Light Preset

I would like to have some clarifications about the "Has Heading" and "Heading" parameter of the Light Row command used with a custom Light Preset.

Is this feature working ? The headings seems to be a bit unpredictable and, it's not clear how the "Heading" parameter works. It says the Heading is in Meters and the SDK confirms that. Which is quite confusing: what Heading, in meters, means ?

Currently the "Has Heading" section is not relevant for the light row objects, and the docs will be updated to reflect this (and the fact that yes, it should be in degrees, not meters) ... Sorry for the inconvenience this may have caused. Also please note that we have a more in-depth discussion on light rows and presets here, if you'd like to participate and see what has been discussed already: https://devsupport.flightsimulator.com/questions/1289/light-presets-directional-variables-for-custom-vas.html
