Title: Resynchronizing Styles?
Post by: Alex.S on November 01, 2019, 03:01:48 PM
If I update a base style, at present I need to reselect the style from the style browser for the updates to come through. Is there not a better way to do this? It'd be nice to have a sync button like we have for master style for example.

I'll often have two max files open, one with my base profile which is saved into the library, and then a second with many different objects using that style.

I do also run into issues with changed settings getting overwritten. I wrote a script which just marks all settings as modified. I think this might come from cloning objects to create new versions of the same profile, the settings get copied but the fact they are modified gets lost somehow, dunno.

Hi Alex,

We did not want to dynamically link styles to the library otherwise if/when we update them it would affect users styles without their permission. However a button that reimports from the source is not a bad idea. I will add the suggestion to our wish list for discussion.

Many thanks for the suggestion,
