Cannot Link a Drawing Path to Transformation Switch

Hello all, I’m having trouble figuring out how to link a drawing path to a transformation switch. Every time I drag the node onto my node view and hook it up to the necessary deformers, the Drawing Path box is locked and I’m unable to add anything to it. Any ideas?

Did you find a resolution? I am having the same issue. When my colleagues open the same file their layer properties for the transformation switch has more features but they don’t show on mine and I’m not able to access the button that lets you target a drawing path. I’m on a Mac btw.

Maybe the following will help:

  • Right-Click on the Deformer Tools Task toolbar
  • click on “Customize…”
  • search for a tool called “Associate Parent Transformation-Switch with Selected Element” and add it to the toolbar
  • try to associate the drawing to the Transformation-Switch by using the tool

Hope this helps.
