Library place script for organizing projects and for incremental object and scene backups. A library place is a collection of trueSpace libraries. The script can create a new library place based on user selection of types library list. It can open preexisting library places. It has buttons for saving scenes and objects with backups. Objects are saved to the Objects library and at the same time a copy is saved to the Objects_BACKUP folder with a unique name. It's the same for the Scenes and Scene library.

The Save Object and Save Scene buttons do not save if the checkbox choices for Objects and Scenes are unchecked

Oh Cool!
Do you have access to the Library2 commands, like Export Object? Hoping... :worship:

Noticed when I installed your Library Place Utility Script it deleted all of your scripts in CustomCommands.
Re Loading the scripts from the C3D icon did work though.

It's not available for scripting. What would you use it for?

I don't see that here. I did a fresh install, added the v4 unofficial and vray stuff, batch installed previous scripts then installed the library place script. It uses the same installer code as all the others so it must be something else. Maybe you did a default context before the install.

Not sure why but at one point VRayMaterials was being checked and opened.
Also the Defaults are being Un Checked. Meaning the only thing checked is VRayMaterials
Edit: It happens when I select the Select Library Place Folder button
The only thing I can see is the original Vray Materials library is spelled without the capital R

Opened several libraries at once and all of the Question alerts were behind trueSpace.
Think I might have a solution for the Alerts not showing by activating the tS Window:

Code: Select all

WindowsManager.ActivateWorkWindow('/Project/Windows Manager Space/Frame Window');
Note: Not fully tested but seems to work in all layouts.
Edit: Scratch that idea, finding it does not work all of the time
Or perhaps a Check for Prompt for Save. Like the one in the Desktop panel.

Wish list:
* Add separate Clear Recent Places and remove it from your Reset button.
* Add the Scene_BACKUP and the Object_BACKUP to the Library Place Script's Default aspect.
* Add Recent Places Combo Ctrl to the Library Place Script's File aspect.
* Add Save Scene and Save Object buttons to your Library Place button.
* Clear Status Line button
