always open layer and material windows on max start

Hi,

Is there a way to always open the layers and materials windows on 3dmax start. None of the UI preferences seems to save this.

thx.

Try this(works on my max2012):

(
	actionMan.executeAction 0 "50048"
	macros.run "Layers" "LayerManager"
 
	callbacks.removeScripts id:#testCallback
	callbacks.addScript #filePostOpen "macros.run \"Layers\" \"LayerManager\"" id:#testCallback
 
)

Save this as ms file and put it in the maxroot/scripts/startup folder. Then restart max.
