# Appending an Object Without A Link

What:

I am trying to append an object in a .blend file using.

How:

TheObject="SINGLEBATTWIRE"
Thepath="B:/........../SINGLEBATTWIRE.blend/Object/SINGLEBATTWIRE"
Thedirectory="B:/........../SINGLEBATTWIRE.blend/Object/"

directory=Thedirectory, filename=TheObject)


Problem:

The import works fine, but it is linked and can’t be moved. This is the result I get.

Current Resolutions:

If I click the button beside the objects name it fixes the problem, but I need to append many objects and this would take forever. If I go to File-Append and find the object, it works great and I have this result.

• what version you are using , I think link_append() has been replaced by link() and append ?! Apr 5 '15 at 23:55
• I am using version 2.70a. Link is not included. Are you suggesting an update and use the new append function? Apr 6 '15 at 0:01
• I have tried Link() and append() before with no problem (just a simple test ), so If you have no reason to stick with that version , why not ? Apr 6 '15 at 0:04
• Trying now....! Apr 6 '15 at 0:06
• @Chebhou - Post that as an answer so I can give you credit! Apr 6 '15 at 0:17

The bpy.ops.wm.link_append() function has been replaced by the two link() and append() functions and they can be used the same way : Example :
import bpy
