Today I downloaded 2.40 alpha2 to get a bit used to the next version of Blender and I was a bit surprised by the following:
In 2.37a when you make a linked duplicate (ALT+D) of an object, it also links information like the subsurf level.
In 2.40 alpha2 when you make a linked duplicate it doesn’t link any of the information in the modifier stack (subsurf for example). It creates a unique object name and uses that for the modifier stack. So now I’ve got to set the properties for every linked duplicate seperately if I wish to change something.
I already tried to make object share the same object name, but that didn’t work. There’s probably some obvious button or function I’m overlooking, so could anybody help me out?
