I'm working on Rhino v4 with a plug-in called Pointools 4 Rhino. This plug-in has some toolbars which I found in the plugin .tb file. The issue I'm facing is that if I move it to a cleaner place, and then use the toolbar configuration wizard to save the pointools toolbar; the toolbars come back to their bad place when I exit and launch Rhino again.
What could it makes these toolbars get this particular place, and not the one I save. This is pretty boring to always have to move the toolbars to get a cleaner interface.
I hope someone can help. Thanks
(If their places can't be fixed, I should be able to recreate a new rhino toolbars that has custom buttons with pointools toolbars image and that launch pointools commands? And disable the old one. The new one should work better maybe. Is it a good idea?)
Hi Clement- there are a couple of things to try- one is, make sure the toolbar file is saved to a location that is writable- with Windows 7, the places in Program Files that many plug-ins used to save the toolbar files is no longer a writable location. Run Toolbar, locate the tb file in the list and SaveAs to some writable location.
The other thing is to run Rhino once as Administrator- right click on the icon and choose 'Run as Administrator'. Arrange the toolbars and close and start normally.
God bless you, it works!!
It was indeed Windows 7 that causes the issue. I set Rhino to always be launched as Administrator. Saved the toolbars somewhere else too. Got some toolbars twice for a while, deleted the ones that were in ProgramFile folder. And now, it's okay!
But I may have another question to get the perfect environement. Is it possible to have an undocked viewport saved in the template in Rhino v4, as I'm working with 2 screens. Because the undocked viewport is currently set docked in the middle of the other 4 default viewport. So I have to undock it and move it to the other screen and maxime it.
I know I can seem to be a lazy user but if it's possible, it would be cool. Few seconds less of managing the viewports when launching Rhino^^
Hi Clement- if your floating viewport has a special name, you can add a macro to the startup-commands (options > General page), or on your New button to float the viewport, like this:
_SetActiveViewport "Floater" _ToggleFloatingViewport
Does that help?
Thanks a lot, it's working. Now, I just have to move the viewport and everything is set for a day of work!
