Okay, "ask and you shall receive." I was able to correct this error when I posted previously, but now it's Monday so of course it's beginning to give me errors in regards to the correction I was making - now nothing works. Here is a screencap of the repro requested:

(I moved this issue into a separate topic)

Sorry you are experiencing this issue. You were previous able to fix it by relinking the CH scenes, but reopening the AE project shows them as disconnected again?

If you open Activity Monitor while this is happening, how many instances of Character Animator are listed?

Is your Character Animator project on an internal or external drive?

What are your system specifications (macOS version, RAM, etc.)?

Thanks.

Hello Jeff, thanks for your help/attention!

Yes, previously relinking the CH scenes made them usable in AE, but after a save and a reboot (after the weekend) that AE project will not reload CA scenes at all.

Activity Monitor? Where/how do I access that?

CA project is on an internal hard drive.

Running MacOS Sierra V10.12.6 with 2.8GHz Intel Core i5 & 8 GB 1867 MHz DDR3

Thank-you for the help! Not sure how this problem escalated while the computer was turned off or why the fix/workaround I used last week doesn't work this week...

If I may ask .... please put a short video tutorial up that shows the process.  That alone would answer almost every related question that lingers or that will come about.

Many thanks!

Character Animator Tips & Tricks (November 2017) - YouTube

It was one of the first things they addressed once the CC2018 update was out, its just not working as easy for me as they show in the video. Perhaps its because I was already in the middle of my project when I updated, projects I start in CC2018 seem to be working much smoother...
