A very simple but EXTREMLY USEFUL script you will use all the time!
With just one click it opens the Slate Material Editor and displays all the materials for the selected objects well organized in a clean view.
Forget about the annoying material picker tool. Add this simple button to your toolbar and every time you want to see the material/s for your current selected object/s just click the button and... Voila!

A simple macroscript to delete all unused materials from the Compact Editor Material Slots AND the Slate Material Editor Views.
The Compact Editor Code is from the existing Macro found under the Compact Material Editor "Utilities" menu.
I have added the code to also purge the SME at the same time.
You might want to check out the "Purge Empty Layers" macroscript as well. There are some awesome scene management tools out there but these are both small, simple tools without a lot of overhead for doing a little housekeeping before saving your file.
FilepathFinder it is a power tool for working with asset files in 3ds Max. With FilepathFinder you can easy find, collect and sort asset files. Utility supports XRefs of all types and processes all XRefs scenes linked to current. Unlike all other such scripts, it really finds all resources (images, HDR-images, Proxy, IES-files, shaders). Also the FilePathFinder can help you quick find objects or materials and textures by asset links.
