Hi, Some super-smal updates.

Jinj: I'm not sure what you mean?

Fajar: Is there any examples of filters regarding max versions etc. to check version info in the help file? Or some scripts i can look at somewhere?

I think an install file probably is the easyest solution?

Hi, Thank you all for the


Thank you all for the feedback jinj og Fajar. This is what i got so far.
The script copy itself to scripts/Startup now and dock to the left side when 3DS Max Starts up.

The icons is terrible now, so if anyone has the time to make some great icons, I would greatly appreciate it.

Do not know if I get so much time the next two weeks and keep at it, but if someone wants to change the script, feel free to do so, we are all better served if it is optimal and minimalistic. It's not everyone that wants it to start automatically either, so we should probably make an installer that installs with different configurations/setups.
