When the Lock UI Layout toggle is active, you cannot modify the user interface layout by dragging interface elements. (You can still use the right-click menu to do so, however.) Use this command to prevent user interface changes or inadvertent actions, such as floating toolbars, from happening due to mouse clicks.
- Default menu: Customize menu > Lock UI Layout
- Alt menu: Customize menu > Customization > Lock UI Layout
Tip: Use this command if you find you are inadvertently selecting and floating UI elements such as the Command panel.
The Plug-in Manager lets you manage plug-ins. The Plug-in Manager provides a list of all plug-ins found in the 3ds Max plug-in directories, including the plug-in description, type (object, helper, modifier, and so on), status (loaded or deferred), size, and path. The Plug-in Manager provides options to load any plug-in, regardless where it resides on disk. Unlike the File Properties dialog, which only lists plug-ins used in a scene, the Plug-in manager lists all loaded plug-ins, and allows you to manage them.
