I am solving this problem in all my animations. I need to use same linked group of objects multiple times (characters and vehicles). But it looks that Blender can link group only once and after Make Proxy my object is jumping between proxies.

My workaround is, copy Blend file to another position and link it as another file. Is there better solution?

    $\begingroup$ I think this is a known limitation of the current system, not sure there any workaround other than what you already mentioned. I think it is planed to be improved for upcoming 2.8# series $\endgroup$ Feb 27 '17 at 14:43
  • $\begingroup$ Why Make Proxy and not link group directly? Linking a group more than once without Make Proxy works okay. $\endgroup$
