Preview mode is still working

Preview mode is still working and you can still check it. You can find it under the command editor. :)

Also, you have to regenerate your Octopus MCR files. (It will be an automated process)
Also under the Command Editor now you can find 4 different modes under the dropdown menu.

Left Click
Left Click [SPINNER]
Right Click
Right Click [SPINNER]

All the Left Click and Right Click [SPINNER] commands are there. :)

Check the cheat sheet, for more. :)

Thanks for the Update it Looks nice :)

After installing the update i opened 3ds max and pressed the keyboard shortcut for octopus menu but i got error message about missing octopus.dll file
so i pressed (Create All Octopus) from Octopus Manager.
its working fine now but the (Right Click - Active) unchecked, So i checked it and its working fine but the (Max Script Action) field is empty !!
-AND (Preview Mode) not exist anymore :( !! , its working for old menus but if i save it it will not work again.
i got it back by reinstalling Octopus, the problem started when i activate (Octopus Friends for old menu with Preview ON)

Very Good and Useful Script

I have 3 Suggestions (for now!:)

1-Adding more than 8 buttons in one menu (or option to make right click act like left click
[run the action and close the menu])
2-the ability to write (Tooltips) for buttons (useful in case of Icon Only checked)
3-The ability to execute the action by hovering over the buttons (This Option already exist by Checking [PREVIEW] )

Thanks in Advanced , BEST REGARDS.

It's a real time saver once you get used to it. Powerful, customizable and visually appealing!

Also the creator is actively helping and friendly tho.
Don't hesitate to buy it!

It's an update, you don't

It's an update, you don't have to buy it again. Just sign in to your account and click on "MY DOWNLOADS". There you can download the most recent version of Octopus.
