Your screen shots are showing error 404 not found, radiuspp is for the shape of the cloud of particals not the radom size of particles that is in the particale emmiter setting............dave

Thx for the reply-but I was able to solve the problem I had to check allow all data types under instancer Geometry replacement then select the right instancer node and attach the scale in general options to my radiuspp.
