So basically this one’s a metadata error that really should have been caught by QA?
I do not understand the question. As far as DS asking if you really wish to load a new figure when you have the old one selected that is NEEDED with genesis. Example: I want John Doe (genesis) in a scene with MS.Lycan (genesis) it asks if I really wish to change my John Doe to MS.Lycan instead of just changing it to the Lycan. I get asked if I wish to Add a new figure or lose all my work on John which would just go POOF and I would have only the lycan in my scene. Understand the need now?
No, this is a separate issue - it’ opening a scene instead of the current scene, not asking about replacing a figure or loading a new one. It’s a change now that DS has both scenes (default open) and scene subsets (default merge). That said, it is possible to fix it via the metadata by changing its type.
