Thread: Upcoming plugin adds a second toolbar to LW

    Upcoming plugin adds a second toolbar to LW

    Here are a couple of screenshots of an upcoming plugin that will allow you to have a second toolbar available for both Layout and Modeler.
    This second toolbar can be placed anywhere on the screen you like. Currently I’m working with an alpha version and only have a single “worksheet” of favorites assigned- (one can have multiple “worksheets” assigned per app if desired) but even with this simple configuration my workflow has increased tremendously and the constant jumping back and forth through menus has been greatly reduced. I’m one of those that use tons of plugins, especially in Modeler.
    Regardless of what menu tab I’m have up, my favorite tools are now always easily available…similar to Lightwave’s own “Top Menu” feature, but better. Plain and simple, it gives me a more ergonomic workflow. I don’t have to remember as many keyboard shortcuts and since I despise using multi-key combinations I no longer have to deal with that.

    As an added bonus you can also launch Windows shortcuts (those recognized by the operating system) directly from this plugin while in LW.

    Estimated release date of the initial version is February 1st.

    Sweet!! Can't wait! This is specially useful with a dual screen setup like what I've got right now.
    ASUS G2S | T7500 C2Duo @ 2.20GHz | 4GB RAM | 256MB NVidia 8600M GT | Win 7 Home 64Bit

    AMD X6 1090T @ 3.20GHz | 4GB RAM | 1.2GB NVidia 470GTX | Win 7 Pro 64Bit

    Mac version please!

    About time someone came up with something like this. Actually, it's like a 'why hasn't anyone done this before?' sort of reaction. Well done.

    Agreed. Making it undockable would be a substantial improvement for those of us with side-by-side monitors.
