Update May 28

fixed the unpublished ora bug mentioned in the previous post
added a bunch of changes from the Unofficial Update version of the tool, mostly a large reduction in undo usage and some ui changes - trueBlue
added a confirmation dialog to the remove layer button - press the refresh button if this change does not show itself

Update Nov 2, 2021

Added a Quick Processing mode to the layers panel.

I was working with a scene that had about 160 objects in it and layers was slow. Adding an item to a layer took about 15 seconds. The quick processing cuts some corners and bypasses group support. When active it can add to a layer in 2 seconds. Not super fast but at least it's reasonable. The same problem showed when hiding and showing layers. The initial run of the layers is still slow because it fully processes the scene without cutting any corners.

Sept 7 2022

Found a major bug in the Web UI. The last loaded page would take over and make any other open UIs inert.

new rsx plugin version v1638409
web ui's don't interfere with each other
delete node in tS updates the layers and scene view 2
delete in scene view 2 updates the layers
select in layers updates the scene view 2
hide/show/lock/unlock in layers updates the scene view 2
start with pre-existing layers node in scene will update it's data instead of just reading it - this only works in web page view, panel display would require manual refresh button press, this catches any changes during the time the layer ui was inactive
add object to layer will update the scene view 2 to catch visibility and locking changes
new WatchdogController node - for the future

no enhancements for scene view 1
improved error for conflicting port numbers - shows the program that is using the port
fixed scene view 2 options button to not show the hover tip

Big TODO is finally document the changes, was put off because of the "there can only be one" UI bug

Edit:
Darn! Found a new problem with the Scene View 2. Expanding child nodes not working properly. Need to figure it out and fix it.
Workaround is the press the Scene button if the list does not expand.

found some bugs while documenting the scene view
all fixes are in the web.zip file, no changes to the installer or rsx plugin

some note links dialogs were overlapping the save, cancel, delete buttons
added a timeout so can run the same command twice if a set time has run out - before was too strict and was unable to run anything 2 or more times in a row
options - made Parent-Child and Joint Hierarchy options update the tree when changed - this also stopped errors
fixed random problem with drag and drop were a refresh message was sent instead of the do drop message
