Hi, as in previous version

Hi, as in previous version 1.0 here the same bug remain:
Quote from Listener:

new_obj: undefined
>> MAXScript Rollout Handler Exception: -- Unknown property: "scale" in undefined <<

just replace: new_obj.scale = source.scale
with: target.scale = source.scale -- now Ok

my recent MAXScripts RSS (archive here)
