On a number of customer visits the same topic has arisen. This discussion has been how to organise the many MAXScripts you have come to rely on in your daily routines.
Luckily there is always a way in Max, and normally from the extensive community. In this example, we ironically look to a dotNet script updated in November last year to help us. This handy toolset created by Havard Schei for 3ds Max 2012, allows users to carefully organise their extensive library of scripts, in an intuitive manner, particularly with the use of ‘Favourites’ and folders. You also have the ability to add your own icons, and customise with your own colours.

The toolset allows has a handy pop up function on mouse over displaying additional options:
This toolset is currently in ‘Beta’ but is one I have found very useful and would recommend you examine.
I would also recommend a look at the other great scripts …. has on their website. Two worth noting are ‘Edgefinder’ and ‘Shapemark.’
Finally, a thanks to Daniel Tegeland.for highlighting this tool to me, and of course a thank you to Havard Schei for creating the tool and sharing.
