Halloween Mistery

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

One month ago, i ve asked if it could be possible to attribute a short key to a plugin, some says no because the plugins don t appear in the custom short key list menu.I was sure i was crazy because some time they appear and i don t know why ! i had to reinstall my OS and then i ve shot this !! (5 notes theme of Close encounter of the third kind music here !

I don t understand why these plugins appear or disappear from time to time from the short key list !

 

Any clue ? where is Lt Colombo ?

:blink:

Plugins are context sensitive so...

Their options will only appear when you are in the appropriate view.

For instance, we won't see a modeling wizard/plugin in an Action window.

 

Now having said that... I don't remember seeing the Shortcut options for Plugins before.

Assuming they work... TOO COOL!* :)

 

(And a set of some of the most common file menu plugins do!)

There doesn't appear to be any way to create shortcut keys for any plugin that can't be run from the File Menu.

(This leaves out wizards such as Font and AI but apparently includes the Treez Wizard. (interesting)

Only the Plugins that you can find in the File menu appear to have the shortcut option.

Thats why we see the option to assign a shortcut is for File:Plugins...

 

But to provide an example of an appropriate view for wizards:

You will only see the Fonts wizard as an option while in a Modeling window.

 

In this case appropriate view/context sensitive means the same thing.

If you are not looking for the plugin while in the correct context A:M will not show it to you.

Plugins don't appear in my Tools tab and I don't recall that they ever did for me, so I'm not sure why they are appearing for you.

 

The fact that they are appearing with "File:" sounds like something is wrong, they are never accessed by the file menu.

Not true. There are some (basic) plugins that we can run from the file menu.

As far as I know the only Wizard we can access from the File menu is 'Treez'.

 

But... you can set a Shortcut key to Simcloth and Newton Simulation!

 

There are a few here in the forum that might want to set a shortcut key combo for "ResetSettings". ;)
