... update 1.5

Now Add Remove Favorites button works in RC Menu.
$UserScripts is now default path. Or U can manually edit srSettings.xml in the same directory.

Thanks for replying.

As for the $UserPath question; I wouldn't mind having it as default. Often, scripts relate to $UserPath one way or the other.

In my case, I have absolute different path as $userPath at home and at work. That is how the user account is constructed in windows and such.
If we would use $userPath, the problem would be eliminated.

For everyone who wants to add custom path, one can add them anyway, right?

Kind regards

Hi Haider,
i did'nt find the way to integrate .net form with toolbar or ribbon.
For the 2nd question about $userscript dir, you mean use this path by default?

Got the answer from the person who was behind that picture. Apparently it was positioned over a blank space.

Question is if it would be possible to add this into a toolbar for real, or inside the Ribbon.

Plus, the previous request still stands :)

Kind regards

feature request + question

Hi!

Feature request: add ability to use $userScript as path. Currently, I have synced my settings so I work on two computers and each of them uses a different absolute path.
Using $userScript would make me be able to use ScriptRun on both setups. Otherwise it ends up with an error when I try to run the script on the computer with the other path than the one set up.

Question: How do I use this as a toolbar? Like this:

Kind regards

Cool news

...no worries and no rush, I can move it manually on each launch.

I'll clean out and reinstall it when i get some free time, may have broken something with my clumsy efforts to make a light colour scheme for it :)

If it's a windows permission issue, forget it ..I can't be arsed bumbling about with all that nerdy stuff ;)

Hey Asymptote how are you?
Probably when I have some free time ;).
But I will consider your request first for new update(two monitors support).
Sorry but I'm very busy last few months

"I prepare new update for

"I prepare new update for max2014-15. Some stuffs are changed till max2012.
Stay tuned ;)"

Is this still happening ? I have no issues with the script other than it opening in the wrong location when using 2 monitors, but was wondering if there's still an update in the works.

Easy to fix the xml file...

I had changed a foldername relating to the script. All I had to do was correct that. Sorry to bother you.

Remove srSettings,xml file in
"C:\Users\XXX\AppData\Local\Autodesk\3dsMax\2014 - 64bit\ENU\scripts\srSettings.xml" and run it again
