XFer versus SJ Cut'n Paste plugins

Post by Emmanuel » 11 Jun 2010, 18:01

XFer and SJ Cut'n Paste are two plugins for Modeler offering the same feature : copy and paste the location / Rotation / Scale from one object to an other.

The same feature ?
Well, not exactly :

SJ Cut'n Paste offers a very handy feature : it can copy/paste vertices in a Point Edition session.
Also it has checkboxes to turn on/off each of the X/Y/Z/LOCATION/ROTATION/SCALE values.
But SJ Cut'n Paste is buggy on tS7.x :( Using its object selection menu can sometimes lead to a Modeler display freeze. Also having the tsX loaded on a toolbar generates an error message on tS exit.

XFer offers the basic tool, but also let the user add or change values in the X/Y/Z fields ; so you can copy X and Y and enter an different value for Z.
It comes with a bug though : on my French system where dots are commas, XFer displays commas but don't allow me to enter commas (only dots)... problem is that it doesn't work with dots either as I am supposed to enter commas !

In my opinion, there is no winner : SJ Cut'n Paste and XFer are complementary.
Although they do the same job, both of them should be in every tSpacer toolset

I use Infoclone tsx, works great without problems in 7.6.

Infoclone ? I think I never used that one.

Is it in DesignDevil list ?

Thank you Bitkar.
Infoclone was not in my collection indeed !

It does the job like XFer, and seems very stable so far :) Doesn't allow for new inputs in the fields nor vertex copy/paste though.

Could you try this build?:

recompiled from source. In this latter the const/deconstr were lacking of the critical MFC string: AFX_MANAGE_STATE(AfxGetStaticModuleState( )) which is the trivial cause for the tS' crashes.

Code: Select all

void tsxDeactivate()
{

	AFX_MANAGE_STATE(AfxGetStaticModuleState( )); 

}

int tsxGetVersion(int tsxid)
{

	AFX_MANAGE_STATE(AfxGetStaticModuleState( )); 

    return 510;
}
