Hey maya masters....
is there a way to add more toolbar icons with some VERY needed commands, like:
* show/hide all maxwell references
* show/hide all maxwell instances
* select/de-select all maxwell.... well you get the idea I guess.
thanx !

I don't think it's a good idea to clutter the shelf with a lot of buttons. We haven't received other requests for show/hide/select buttons and most likely different users need different customizations; we would end up with a million buttons.

However, it's easy to do what you wish with MEL. For example, this command selects all Maxwell references:
Code: Select all
select -r `ls -type maxwellReferencedMXS`
If you type this in the script editor and select the text, you can drag it with the middle mouse button onto the shelf and Maya will create a new button which runs that command. You can also use the shelf editor to add, edit and remove buttons (you will find it either in the Window -> Settings/Preferences menu, or by clicking on the down arrow on the left of the shelf).
