Needing a bit of help here, trying to duplicate a bookshelf's triggers and stuff. When I try to use the duplicates in-game, they won't activate. Is there a way to duplicate or copy them that works? Cause I REALLY don't want to individually do every shelf for every bookcase I do, since i'm making essentially a library right now.

I long time ago I copied a variety of bookshelves already in game and pasted them into a resources folder, I have used them many times in my  mods and they worked. Maybe your duplication missed something?

this was a bookshelf stack I had made myself, and that one works fine. I’ll try finding a bookshelf in game and seeing if it can be duplicated

Ok, it's not working. You think you can upload those bookshelf resources so I can give them a try?

So what's going on, is that when i copy/ paste them into the cell and try to use them in a save where im already there, the triggers dont work. But, when i do a new game THEN use them, they'll work fine.

There are many things baked into a saved game and the activators associated with book shelves, weapon racks etc is one of them.  If you have been into a cell before in game and then add them they won't work. It is why you should always test you mod with a clean save.
