Is it just me or is this script broken in lw2018 ? It worked for me in lw2015 ..

I used 2018.0.6 over the past few days without trouble.

I didn't try this script, but in LW 2018 they removed majority of Modeler-like modeling functionality in Layout (it's not possible to issue Modeler commands anymore).
Therefor I had to make special LW 2018 version of TrueType Text plugin (it used modeling command inside of Layout on earlier versions of LW).

The natively included script works just fine... just keep in mind that you have to select the instanced object and then bake, not the instancer... thats just how the native tool works, and has always worked.

It does work that way :)

... But that method does seem like the opposite way around to what I'd expect.

i'm not gonna debate how it works.. .the poster was simply implying that it didnt work.... but it does..... Mike Green has a free instance baker that works as you would expect (by selecting the instancer), and there's also one in ODTools, that works with animated instances as well.

Absolutely, but just saying that it may be user error, based on a strange tool logic, rather than the plugin not working.

Obviously yours and Mike's are a welcome addition too.

I really used it in a wrong way at first ( I of course selected the instancer ) but even when I realized my error it didnt really work for me . The baked object changed size and orientation ..
I test the script from mike green .. maybe I have more luck with this ..
