Clone in Global Search
« on: May 29, 2019, 11:20:20 AM »
Hi, we use Clone plugin for long time. it simple and great. But now I found a strange behavior. The plug-in does not appear in Global Search. Other plugins like FP (and other 3 party) is in Global Search.  Is there any chance to fix this? THX

Hi, it seems the plugin needs to register a specific "action" in 3DS Max to appear in the Search Box. Clone doesn't register any action, so is not visible.

Sincerely we didn't notice of this issue until now. We'll investigate it.  Unfortunately it's not possible to fix the issue without some changes in the plugin.

Thanks,

Thanks. If you fix this, it will be nice. Because now for Clone we cant use Search AND shortcut. Clone dont apear in "Customize User Interface/Keyboard" what is I think the same as Search.
I understand that the problem is inside DLM file and it can be fixed only in future versions.

Hi

As a workaround You can create actions Yourself and then it will be accessible in Global Search:
Quote
macroScript AddCloneMod
   category:"Itoo Software"
   tooltip:"Add iToo Clone Modifier"
   (
   modPanel.addModToSelection (clone ()) ui:on
   )
