Creating a new menu for my plugins
Hey guys !
I am just starting zscripting and I have a question :
I want to create a new menu where all my zscript would be at the launch of Zbrush.
I found the way to create the subpalette, but is it possible to create menus which would be loaded at startup ?
Sorry if it has been already posted, but i didn't find it...
I think I should reformulate my question : is it possible to create a new menu/palette with Zscript ?
thx guys !
It was possible in zbrush 2 but that functionality was removed or at least I cannot make it work anymore. Probably a good idea as it could create confusion with people new to ZBrush.
You can still create a subpalette within an existing palette.
ok that's what i would do
Thx for your time !
I would be a nice idea to implement back this option cause in some case it could be helpful :-)
I just remembered Preferences > Custom UI > Create New Menu which you could use to create a new palette where you can put your zplugin interface items.
This will however only work for your configuration and the Create New Menu button is not scriptable.
Maybe that will work for you?
For me yes, but i want to find a way to install on different PCs, so it would have been cool to script it.
Apart from scripting the palette creation there is also the problem of modifying users own custom UIs. I did get close to a method at one point with 3.1 - but not close enough.
The alternative is to create a whole UI that users can load, in the manner of PaintStop. If your idea doesn't warrant that complexity you'll probably find it easiest to stick with creating a plugin menu.
yes so far I guess the subpalette would do the job ;-)
Thx Marcus !
Whenever I go into PREFERENCES/ CUSTOM UI/ ... i cant seem to select NEW CUSTOM MENU ( its greyed out ) ... why is this ?
Is this some separate script ?
** UPDATE ** ... I just discovered out why its not enabled. UNDER PREFERENCE / CONFIG ... click on enable custom otherwise youll end up like me and not be able to click on NEW CUSTOM MENU !
thanks works wonderful !
