A tiny little script to reset 3DS Max “floating” Windows to position 0,0 in upper left when they are gone or out of range.
Just give me a note or comment to add more floaters since i guess i have missed some of them, or just add the line(s)yourself to the script and upload the file again ;o)

Would it be possible to add a

Would it be possible to add a "set current position as default" option to this great little tool? That way people could not only retrieve windows from off screen but set their default position to something more desirable.

SlateMatEd

Hi.
Testing the script with Max2012 it seems that the SlateMatEd is not included. It is not reset when pressing the "Reset All Dialog Windows" button.
Other than that, a wonderful script.

Thanks a bunch.

Hi, real08121985: Yes, I

Hi,

real08121985:

Yes, I found this earlier, but it does not work so well with 3DS Max 2012.
So I thought I could make a little more user-friendly script, or max script friendly version that is easy to change when new versions of 3ds max shows up.
But I must say that the whole concept to Lone Robot is really good: o)

Christopher Grant:

Yes, this script is basically done because someone at work do not know where to look for files when they are to find, edit and delete content within files.

Autodesk has not made ​​it very user friendly to reach the files in recent years. : o)

LoneRobot also worked on this

LoneRobot also worked on this problem and tryed to find a solution for any window, his script can be found here: http://lonerobot.net/?p=710. He uses some version dependent 3ds max icons, which may not work for every version of max. Try the attached file in this case. Still very useful and easy script tassel!
