Cloner object Distribution gone when using object mode?

Can anyone tell me with the distribution option does not appear when I try to create a cloner object and use a motext object as the object but it works with a regular primitive such as a sphere? It used to work fine with motext objects before.










Thank you for your help.

You need to make the MoText object a child of a Connect object. You probably did that before but just forgot about it.

Per the help files (Cloner Object: Object Tab) -

Tip:
Not all objects that can be dragged into the Object field function with the above modes (e.g., the Text Object). In such instances it often helps to make the element a Child of a Connect Object, which is in turn made part of the clone process.


Edit: put the Connect object in the "Object" window of the Cloner parameters.

Yes, that was it. Thanks a lot for the reminder. I haven't done this in a long time.
Worst part is I built it converting the motext object into a polygon and the scrapped the entire thing in favor of a different design.

Anyway, thanks for replying.
