Expression Editor can’t load problem

If you ever get this message:
“Error: file: C:/Program Files/Autodesk/Maya2016/scripts/others/expressionEditor.mel line 2220: Object ‘EEmultiText’ not found.”

You can fix it.

  • Close Maya!
  • Go to your “C:\Users\Your User Name\Documents\maya\2016\prefs\” folder
  • Open the userPrefs.mel file.
  • Find this line:
    -iv "EEexprEdTextEditor" 0
    and change the 0 to 1.
  • Save
  • Launch Maya

Cheers, D
