Units message
« on: February 09, 2018, 04:09:28 PM »
Just was wondering if we'll ever stop being plagued by this message??
I thought it had already been mentioned on the forum, but I could not find it...
Seems like it's been an issue for quite some time (maybe 2016?)

Thanks!

Hi,

As mentioned in the "Xref Objects merged with mismatched units creates multiple pop-up dialogues" Autodesk Knowledge Network site:

"A workaround that prevents excessive pop-up dialogues (Object XRef System Units Mismatch, missing plug-ins) during scene load can be found here. This script is especially useful for 3ds Max versions 2016 and 2017, as having Xref scenes with different system unit settings will now open a pop-up window for each file."

Hope that helps.

Best regards,

Oh, I actually did have that installed on max2016.
It helped to reduce the number of dialogs, but the dialog box still appeared.
Maybe it will work better in 2018, thanks again.

Yep, it works a lot better in 2018 than 2016.
Dialog pops up only once now.
Thanks again
