Targeting expression help please.

Lets try this again...
I am using Cinema 4D XL 7. Yes it is old but it is all I have. I made an object, a bow, that uses a tartet expresion, but the problem is if there is two of the object groups, the second group in the list points to the first group in the list. Is there a way to restrict the target expression to just one object group since I might be making several copies of them so renaming each target and target expresion would be impractical?
Thank you and a seedy responce would be appriciated.

If this is not the right place to post please tell me where I should. (I did post this before but it seems to not be here.)

Also, where do I go to look at my posts from my profile, so I do not have to use the search?

I think the problem which you are facing is because of using Cinema 4D XL 7 which is too old and does not support these all and for getting to your post directly in your profile there is a option of my post.

Like I said, I know it is old, ten years old. I was just trying to find a way around the issue like possibly a old plugin or something. I ended up going a different direction with what I was going to use it for but it would still be very good to figure this out.

Thank you.

i think everybody here really would like to help you,
but working with a 10 year old software makes it hard to give you any tips, since no one here will have a clue how to describe the help - even if assume that R7 already had target expressions.

good luck

You'd probably have to write your own Menu plugin to perform the copy and code it to rename the objects in each group copy and rename the link edit field in the Target Expression tag. If you look in the folder "Resource/res/dialogs" for the file R_FOLLOW.res, you will find the ID for the search edit text field in the Target Expression tag is "IDC_SUCHEN".

Unfortunately, XL7 didn't have the ability to transfer goals when making copies, so the only thing you can do is either do it manually or write your own plugin to do it.
