same annoying thing

Jordan, I also have this bug. It easily reproduce:
1. Open zorb
2. Minimize
3. Close using "X" window's button
4. Open again zorb
Window size not restored and window tries to open in minimized window's position.

thanks for the kind words

thanks for the kind words kurt_hectic!

harumscarum: I have never had the issue you mention. There is a file that stores the size and position of the window here: \plugcfg\ModModZorb_Setup.ini (should be in your max dir)
Is should look something like this:

You can delete it and It will load up at the default size. Sometimes, perhaps between updates it can get corrupted and not save the settings properly.

permanent error on complex scenes

similar issue from time to time on script's run - it appears ant the very botto from the left not minimized but smallest window size possible. cool tool, but very annoying to restore and resize it every time
i hope it could be fixed

I logged in just to type : thank you!
That script is awesome, it should be a core, standard module inside 3ds max.

If click on MaxwellBSDF, MaxwellLayer, Maxwell_Bitmap it shows the following error:

--Syntax error: at (, expected name
-- In line try (Modpros_MaxwellBsdf.V_BsdfEnabled.checked=
