Not sure if this is the right place to post a feature request. But i`ve use 3d coat over the years as well as substance painter. And one thing that has always bugged me (excuse pun!) is there isnt a search feature for materials and the like. I have probably 300+ smart materials. There isnt a way to list them, only thumbnail views. You have to hover your mouse, wait a second and then the name appears. Try that when you have 20+ folders of materials each container 30+ materials. Its painful. Surely its time to have a search feature so you could just type eg. con ... and concretes would appear. Same goes for alpha brushes. This is such a useful feature in substance painter. *Please* add a search feature.
ajz_searchForVolume DESCRIPTION: The script will select a volume with a name matching the text entered by the user. Useful in complex scenes with a long VoxTree with a deep hierarchy. INSTALLATION: Unpack everything to %USERPROFILE%\Documents\3D-CoatV4\Scripts\ExtraMenuItems and restart 3D Coat. USAGE: You will find the script here: Edit->Search for volume. Enter some text into the text field and press the Search button. 3D Coat will select the volume provided you enter its exact name. Exit the window with the OK button. LIMITATIONS: Yeah, you read right: "Its exact name". And case sensitive too. I couldn't figure out how to walk around this problem without spending too much time on it. An obvious solution would be to use RegEx, but I couldn't find any information on whether AngelScript supports it or not. The UI available for the script engine doesn't allow for implementation of dynamic search so you will need to confirm your input by leaving the text field and clicking the Search button. If your VoxTree is very long, then you might need to scroll the VoxTree window to see it. It's not possible to script in automatic scrolling. If several volumes share the same name, the uppermost will be selected. I could add a button that would select the next volume of the same name, but it would have to iterate through the VoxTree and this is currently very slow in 3D Coat. Plus it's a rare (and a bad) thing to have multiple objects with the same name, so I decided not to do it. ajz_searchForVolume.zip
