2.0.0a7 Flow Function Graphs can only be used in other classes if the Function's class of origin is also on the object

Not sure if a bug or this is by design but Flow Functions can only be used in other classes if the class containing the function is also on the object. Or if the function is in Scene or Singleton class scopes, which the object also "sees".

Does not work with UtilityFunction in DoSomething behaviour:

Works if ClassWithFlowFunction is also on the TestObject:

Works if ClassWithFlowFunction is Scene/Singleton scope:

Hi TowerCrow,

That is by design, it's the exact same case as your other report on component events on multiple game objects.

Each class instance has its own function. If you want to call that function on another game object, you have to tell Bolt on which game object to look. Otherwise it simply won't know which!
