OK, I feel a bit stupid even posting this because I cant see how maya 6 can be this bad, so i feel like it must be me... but...
in maya 5 i could create a new script (example newScript.mel), WHILE MAYA IS RUNNING and put it in,
C:\Documents and Settings\homer\My Documents\maya\5.0\scripts
then source it with "source newScript", that would source it, then i could run it with "newScript".
simple stuff, however... in maya 6, i do the same thing, but put it in,
C:\Documents and Settings\homer\My Documents\maya\6.0\scripts (WHILE MAYA IS RUNNING),
and source it "source newScript", i get an error...
Error: Cannot find file "newScript" for source statement.
then if i source it through the script editor menu, it works, and i can run it, but even after that, if i try to source it again it errors.
1:it is not the script, it does this to all new scripts introduced WHILE MAYA IS RUNNING.
2: this only happend if the script was NOT in the scripts folder when maya starts up
3: I am using the default maya directory, looks like alias have changed where maya is looking thogh... the question really is.. to where?
