This little scripted plugin is aimed at improvement of teamwork-workflow.
It allows you to place notes in the scene wich you can handle like any other Max object (link, animate, ect). That way you can just leave some remarks directly in the scene, where it matters, to prevent possible confusion and improve the workflow and thereby the resulting product.

Additional Info:

Nice one

Just a sugestion, is it possible to do another helper using tape in the notefield?

Example: I have an hydraulic cylinder and this cylinder goes max 2000mm out, and have an minimum of 1500mm from center end to center start. I then want to link end tape to the one side and the target tape to the other side.

The way i do this now is linking tape end/target where i want and then using you script to attatch note-helper to the target each side with min/max value.

I hope you understand my explanation ;o)

Anyway, this script is very useful for me :)

Has found a lack. The object

Has found a lack. The object is in panel Helpers and is displayed as Helpers. But when you include Hide Helpers Toggle, all Dummy disappear, and inscriptions remain. Whether it is possible to correct it?

English through the electronic translator:)

Нашел недостаток. Объект находится в панели Helpers и отображается как Helpers. Но когда включаешь Hide Helpers Toggle, все Dummy исчезают, а надписи остаются. Можно ли это исправить?
