Fajar: Just expand the window

Fajar: Just expand the window out, next time you open it the size will be remembered... or you can delete the \plugcfg\ModModZorb_Setup.ini file, This stores your size/location info.

Thank you Jordan.

Jordan, your support and Zorb script are truly amazing. fR Layer works fantastic now, as the rest of the features (tested on Max 2010 and Max 2012 x64).

I will recommend this beautiful, real world script to everyone!

Regards

Hi Jsrocha, Thanks for your

Hi Jsrocha,
Thanks for your comments.
The Save Presets are saving the values of the properties on the object/modifier etc, while the max and min values are UI elements so they are not really part of the presets. I'll have a look at what I can do though.

save presets

Hi Jordan, this is a great script, thanks a lot. I have a suggestion, i start to use the "save" option, but i notice that it does not save the random values, wich is the option that i use most. Is that possible to make the script save the random values too?
thanks,

Jsrocha

I tested it with max 2012 and

I tested it with max 2012 and seems to work ok.

I have a problem that was also in max 2011 though: when I try to offset a parent using zorb controller, the child is also offseted in relation to the parent which result in the child losing the relative position it should keep with his parent...
