    Two inputs that looks the same, behave differently when plugged in

    Hello,

    Long time no see

    Short problem story:

    I make some testing with a script from dynamo forum (credits to Daniel_Woodcock1).
    -The creator generated manually the input list for the views to be placed on sheets (a code block where he is writing the name of the views)
    -I tried to generate the same list of views via a filter method using a keyword and the watch node show me the same result (the same view list).
    -The bad thing is that when I pass my input in the place on sheet node, the application freeze. His input works
    What do I miss?

    See picture or test your self with the revit and dynamo files attached (check run to freeze the app with my input that is already plugged in or make it work by connecting his input, see in the picture the red dashed line ) )

    Long story:
    I`m working to agregate a series of already solved dynamo scripts around the web so I can generate a window schedule with pictures (you know, like usually we do in Europe, Archicad style)

    In the process I`ve been stuck with that beautiful file (credits to Daniel_Woodcock1) that seems to do what I need, in one of the steps.

    Here is the original file:
    https://forum.dynamobim.com/t/place-...nates/12883/39

    and here is the explained the structure of the needed inputs:
    https://forum.dynamobim.com/t/place-...nates/12883/44

    I`ve also posted this problem there, but nobody seems to analize my post

    Needing your help
    Thank you

    have you tried collecting your schedule(s) in a different way?

    Look at the difference between what you are feeding (that doesn't work) and what the working example is feeding.

    There's a difference in layers of nesting in the list. You are feeding a list, containing a list, containing your view(s). He is feeding a list, containing views. His is 1 level simpler that yours. The first test I would build is flattening your list, so you also just have a list containing views.

    He also have 2 levels. Zoom in a little in the picture and read the L1 L2 L3 text on bouth nodes in the left bottom corner, or open the file and you will see we have the same thing
