If you hover over a single (square) or multi-button (rounded), a popup menu will tell you what object(s) it selects.

Re: namespace issue and questions

If the Picker was authored with the character referenced in (which is the best way), you have to do the same. That way, you can assign it to the proper namespace.

Sounds like you opened or imported the file. Try *referencing* the rig in.

Make sure you have a picker tab open. Select something on the rig then right click on the interface to make a button.

Re: Saving picker in maya scene?

If you make a new picker and save the Maya scene, the picker data is stored in the scene.

Of course, normally you want to store it separately, so you can use it in other scenes as well. To do that, save it from within AnimSchool Picker.
