In section 18.29, Deciding the scope of something, the examples shown include the location of the player in a ‘while’ clause, for example–
After deciding the scope of the player while in the Shrine: place the holy grail in scope.
However, when I tried basically the same thing–
After deciding the scope of the player while in Writer's Office:
place the lantern in scope.
It threw a problem message, saying that it did not understand the ‘while’ clause. When I changed it to ‘while the location is Writer’s Office’, it worked just fine. But why didn’t the first attempt (based on the example in the manual) succeed??
