How do you write the %object%.Article.%object%.Name(None) with the CharInsideWhat and CharOnWhat functions? When I do it, it displays the correct article but does not display the object at all. Example (she is sitting in your) instead of (sitting in your car). Also this happens when character is in any other object as well.

I tried to use the wiki but it is not really that clear on function explanations IMHO. Thanks.

The popup menu gives you a list of what you can choose from in each case.
If you type %character%. then the list shows "Inside which object?"
Press another . after that %character%.CharInsideWhat and the popup menu will tell you that you can choose the article or name functions.
When you type a ( after Name you will get a popup list of those options.

You have also put an extra dot between the two functions when you wrote them above. That wont work.
The result should look like this:
%character%.CharInsideWhat.Article %character%.CharInsideWhat.Name(None)
