In addition to Sarah and Jerry's comments I would also add that GLX2
stores the script you are working on (hasn't been compiled yet) in the
object itself. So the script you are working on follows that object
around. So opening the script of the object in another version of Rev
running GLX2 should still show the script in progress (done this
plenty of times myself).
Opening the script in the Rev script editor will NOT show the working
script, however, since Rev doesn't know about GLX2 custom properties.
So if you aren't seeing changes as you move between two versions of
Rev that are both using GLX2 then my guess is that you have the stack
open in both versions at the same time and aren't reloading the stack
into memory. If a stack file has been loaded in memory and you change
the stack file on disk the changes on disk will not show up in the
stack in memory until it is reloaded. Is it possible that this is what
is happening on your end?
