check for valid modifier

copy an extrude mod in your tool, and paste it on spline that ever have an extrude : error message

you should put in your code :

if validModifier $ themod then
-your code-
modPanel.addModToSelection themod
-your code-

Anyway, as you have option to save datas in file, is using persistent globals safe ? What about future max versions etc ? Tested in max2014 ?

window size

Hi Ecximer, how´s going?
hey man, i use this script a lot, i think it´s great. But i want to ask you if is possible to make the window resizable (or bigger), because i use to rename the modifiers, and the space to do this is a little small, so i think that can improve the script.
Thanks in advance,

Could you, please, add a

Could you, please, add a feature to respect object volume after pasting a modifier so that its gizmo(if supported by mod type) automatically fits to the volume of each separate object.

... Selection Floater only has issues in CERTAIN circumstances !!!! So will have to figure out when exactly...will report when I do ;)

Cool script...

...but it loses a lot of its charm if the Selection Floater does not work anymore. You can click any object you want, the last object selected when opening the ModifierClipboard stays selected.

Pleaaaaase fix it ;)

many thanks for the script

Wouldbe nice to have it keep custom names of the modifiers i copy and then paste them not, say, as Noise mod but having unique names.

Hi jsrocha

Not only the first copy, and one that is selected.
But I've added an option that you ask, although I believe it will be in demand.

nice script

Hey man, great script. But I have one suggestion: it would be possible make the script copy all the modifiers in the stack? Now it copies only the first. It would be great if it could do that.
