different copy paste folder

Very nice script. Bu since I use different scene project, I need to select a generic folder (like C:\users\Documents) for use copitor. So If I use different scene project, copy and paste are the same folder so It can be used with all scenes.

I gave $25 for your script, but never got an email, download link, or anything! I also emailed you from your website and got an error.

Copy models between different Max versions

I wonder if would be possible to use it to transfer models between Max 2018 and 2017
Currently is not possible.
This could give done giving the option to save in older version

Hi zOffTy, thank you for such

Hi zOffTy, thank you for such simple and usefull plugin - using it everyday.

Just have small quastion/request about it - is there a way to put copy/paste buttons on toolbar?

I usually have 2-3 instances of 3ds max open and exchange objects between them frequently - so it would be much faster to select objects and press "copy" on toolbar in one scene, and press "paste" in another scene. I attached screen shot how it could look like.

Also it would be great if I could assign copy/paste actions on keyboard.

Best regard, Aleksey
