If you are like me and use a Wacom with 3ds max, you have definitely encountered this issue with selecting objects!

Scenario:
You select an object and it moves it!!!!!!!!!!!! this is no good!!

So what i wanted was to use Q to select an object, move it with W then go back to Q when deselected. So with some hardcore googling and experimenting i found a solution.

Behold the holy grail for all Wacom users!

Usage:
if max is opened, close it.
Copy the script to your scripts/startup folder
run max

or if max is opened.
Copy the script to your scripts/startup folder and then run the script.
Happy days.

To remove the script:
Run removewacomscript.ms which is a macroscript. You can keep this as a button so whenever you dont want the script running you can deactivate it.

If you have any issues or recommendations please hit me up. If you want to improve it, please do and let me know so i can re-upload for the community :)

Version Requirement: 
2018, might work on older versions
Other Software Required: 
3ds max
AttachmentSize
removewacomscript.ms158 bytes
wacomholygrail.ms321 bytes

Thats strange because I use

Thats strange because I use this script on a daily basis and it works for me. Let me double check I uploaded the correct version and get back to you.

But just to confirm, copy with move+shift does work.

Update:
Re-uploaded it, try again and let me know :)
