Expressions don't auto update when "Expression Pick Whip Writes Compact English" preference is off.

It appears that an expression generated when the "Expression Pick Whip Writes Compact English" preference is off, will not be auto-updated when changing the name of an expression control referenced by the expression, causing the expression to generate an error.

Hi @Dan Ebberts,

Thanks very much for reporting this issue. We are able to reproduce the failure to update the non-compact English expression links as well and have opened a ticket to investigate a fix for a future version of After Effects.

 

Thanks again,

- John, After Effects Engineering Team
