Simple path mask not working properly?

Hi All.
Can somebody check and explain what am I doing wrong with this path/branch mask? I “think” it is not working properly… or is it?

Try to right click “Branch” and set to remove the “Maintain” flag.

If that’s not what you need, please explain further what did you expect.

Thanks! It sort of worked but I realized two things.

  1. I don´t understand how tree-branch works
  2. The “maintain” option creates new clean branches and stripes of the original path I wanted to maintain.
    So I had to resort to a different method.
    But thanks a lot!

If you “Merge” two data stream with both {2} path, they will become a single list.

Or more generally data streams with the same path will “mix” their content once merged toghether.

So with the “Branch” component, if you input many time the same path, it will retrieve many time the content of that path, and put it together.

See this other analogy:

maintain vs (17.9 KB)

Note how the output of “Branch” components have the original path, even if it is just a single object (a letter).
