Are you downloading the right

Are you downloading the right version.. it should make a UI_In folder, not a UI folder. you need the 2013+ version. Again.. not totally sure if max2022 still uses the UI_In folder.
What is the default dir structure?

Ive added the filters in

Ive added the filters in v2.9.03. The only thing is that you have to close and open the property window dialog for it to update. So not perfect, but works and is saved between sessions.
