Variable names problem
Mar 19, 2018
I have a problem with variable names...
I have a project with lots of variable names. I want to duplicate all the objects with their scripts (including variables) to a new scene(s) and have the same functionality in the duplicated scene(s).
Now I want to change the variable names throughout. If I did this in the same project it would change the variable names througout and not help me. So I thought I would duplicate the project into a new storyline project and change the variable names there. Then import the project back in. I expected this to duplicate all the scenes with same functionality but with a new second set of variable names throughout. But it doesn't. It keeps the same variable names as whichever set of scenes and variable names were in place first.
I also tried setting up a new project. Copying one object with states and all the variables into this new project with say the variable name 'accom_every'... I also imported the same object from a second project where I had renamed the variable 'accom_every' to 'aquies_over'...then copied that object with associated states and variable names...but when I copied in the second object it did not create a whole new variable name but just duplicated the usage number of the existing variable - in other words it changed back the variable name to what it had been before...
