Великолепный инструмент!

Великолепный инструмент! Спасибо большое! Вот только если была возможность при архивации сделать сохранение в крайне низкую версию файла было б вообще круто ...хотя бы голочкой что ли как то переключатель сделать! Спасибо заранее!

UI update

Крайне полезная и нужная тулза, за что автору нижайший поклон!

Правда вот интерфейс всегда вводил в некоторый ступор, спасала большая кнопа "коллект"=) В общем, решил я его слегка причесать, но уже как месяца три руки не доходят закончить начатое.

На случай если автор, либо же кто-то из общественности разделит этот порыв, то .ms и .psd а в аттаче.


Extremely useful and musthave tool, kudos to author! But the ui always confused me. So, I decided to comb it a little, but it was three month ago..In case the author, or someone from the public shares this impulse, then .ms and .psd in the attachment

your script has a bug at max 2018 - here is the little fix

I just added the line Buttontext: to the function ( now the button text shows as expected )

macroScript Collect_asset_2
Buttontext: "Collect Asset"
category:"# Scripts"
toolTip:"Collect Aasset 2"


Whoever is missing button text on max 2018, here is the solution. Just mouse over the empty button from toolbar, edit script, save. Go to original folder replace the file with the new one. Profit!

Enjoy! :)
