Since Max2009 Autodesk has the Default Light Create Mode set to Photometric Lights. For all of you who don’t like that setting here is a small script which goes into your scripts/startup folder and changes that
with redraw Off( startObjectCreation OmniLight
Max modify mode
Max create mode )
By the way, maybe its just me, but if you you are having problems to get this script running even so you copied it into the startup folder than do it like me and copy it into this folder:
I should, I suppose, at this point remind everyone about the EULA - especially the bits about not redistributing files.
.ini files (which many of the maxstart UI files are) are one thing - they serve no useful purpose to anyone without Max.
Icon files, on the other hand are supplied on disk (or in the subs download) by Autodesk, they are undoubtedly copyrighted and could well be used by anyone (anyone wishing to argue with AD’s legal department anyway).
Bearing in mind that we all agreed to the terms of the EULA by installing and using Max, it may be that reconsidering whether posting such files publically is a wise move (or not...).
Max 4.2 through 2014, Composite 2014.

It would be even better if folks read the first post and didn’t post questions in the first place. They don’t, of course. Please note that the Moderators are not Autodesk employees, are not paid, and are not obliged to do anything other than enforce the forum rules.
Presumably you intended to attach a file? See this post for help with attachments.
Ahh I see. No, you can’t do that. I could, but I’m wary of deleting old posts, especially where they have replies (as some of them do). Then there are questions and answers embedded in comments (sort of valid ones) to an off topic post. Deleting the post will delete all the associated comments.
On balance I think it would be better to leave them as-is. Any new ones I’ll try and jump on.
- you may put your own tools in QuickAccess - just need to create scripts in UI/usermacros with icon defined
- press HideMenuBar to get rid of big left-top corner button
- kill InfoCenter - put this in Scripts/Startup
Is it possible to make the “Save as...2010” option the default save value? I have Max 2011, but school still uses 2010 so I have to constantly remember to Save As and change to 2010. Even just one Ctrl+S reverts it back to version 2011.
