MaxScript Compile error: No outer local variable references permitted here: [identifier]

99% of the time when it happens to me that is because of a missing parenthesis. That’s it. While you can browse the web for different explanations about MaxScript code scope rules, I suggest you to first check your latest edited places in the source code and look for missing closing parenthesis.

The most confusing is that it studently appears in a totally opposite place of where you are working on the script, tagging a random function or variable identifier.
