 The Outliner 2.0 is a fast and easy to use scene management tool. It has a wide range of features, including selecting, hiding, freezing, linking and grouping objects in the "Hierarchy Mode". In the "Layer Mode" you can organize your scene by dragging&dropping objects from one layer to the other. What's more, the Outliner offers support for nested layers, to manage scenes more efficiently. The interface is nimble enough to keep it open constantly.

Let's do both?
We can use the semi-fix till the complete fix.

I have been using already just ignoring the error message.
But would be great if max shortcuts can pass through.
Now I need to click the viewport after using the outliner.

Thanks a lot.

This may not be news, but it works in Max 22.

There is an error message during installation, but just make a button on the Toolbar.

close it up

I would wait. But here's the idea: It still starts after you close the error window. If you could add a command immediately closing, an error message. Something like "Alt + F4". But Alt + F4 can, under certain conditions, close the max, although on the other hand he asks about preservation, well, there are possible re-mixing of course, you will need to be careful.

I'm not a programmer, so maybe I'm writing nonsense, I'm sorry if something goes wrong.

The "shortcut exception at

The "shortcut exception at startup is because outliner scans the keyboard shortcut file and tries to interpret it. Since the format of that file has changed completely with the new shortcut manager, Outliner fails to do this and throws an exception..
This code is/was there to have 3ds Max shortcuts getting passed through to the 3ds Max window, while the Outpost window is active ( and receives the keyboard input)
I have a local source modification here that removes this feature ( and the exception ), with the side effect, that keyboard shortcuts are not getting passed throguh to 3ds Max while the outpost window is active

I thought i gonna fix this, but did'nt find time to do so ... i dont know WHEN i'll find time to do so either...
So what you want me to do ? post the semi-fixed build or are you patient enough for a complete fix ?
