open/close all/selected groups
This macro-script is meant to use as a shortcut. It can open or close all or all selected groups in the scene.
I use "STRG + SHIFT + G" to open all groups and "STRG + G" to close all groups but you can change it to whatever you prefer.
1) Run the .mcr file
2) Go to "Customize" -> "Customize User Interface" -> "Keyboard" -> "Category" -> "Custom"
3) define your desired shortcuts
You can also make some button if you like.
The credits belong to "Swordslayer" as i used his code for this macro: http://www.scriptspot.com/forums/3ds-max/general-scripting/open-all-groups-and-sub-groups
When i saw the thread i realised that this macro could be very helpful. At least for my daily work. So i always have all groups closed and just open all groups for editing an object. As soon i am done i close all groups again. A good timesaver.
Update version 0.2:
- added two actions "open visible groups" + "close visible groups"
- added messagebox with info with category name of actions
