EnergyPlus OtherEquipment - Am I missing something?

The v8.6 IO Reference notes that the second field is "Fuel Type", but that field is not visible as I'm looking at the object in IDF Editor. For that matter, the IO Ref also says there are supposed to be fields for CO2 Generation Rate and End-Use Subcategory, but those are also absent in IDF Editor.

Am I missing something? If not, I'll report it as a bug.

maybe your IDF editior is not picking up the new IDD?

Spot on. Thank you! I was (cluelessly) using EP Launch and the v8.5 IDF Editor. All is now well.

p.s., I knew that OtherEquipment had been revised for v8.6, so I was more in tune with the data fields...
