Object(s)/ Group / Array

Use the Object(s) / Group / Array box to specify the object(s) you want the activity to affect. You can specify a single object (using the eyedropper tool or a model.find() command), an object group (flat or nested) or an array of objects and/or groups. When a token enters the activity, the expression will be parsed recursively such that arrays of groups or groups will be properly handled.
