Learn how to make a pop up note that will be shown when a 3ds max file is opened. Pop up notes can be useful to identify the author of a file or to give important information to an artist that will continue to work on a file after you.

Good hidden gem, thanks for sharing. I'm still thinking why there are so many little hidden things like pop up notes that Autodesk doesn´t include directly in the UI. Thanks again.

Hi Louis, any time I try to customize any part of the popup message (author field, or message field), it spits out this error when i try to read the popup: " -- Argument count error : messageBox wanted 1, got 4 " If i leave all fields default (the author as the date and the file note what appears to be a serial number in curly brackets), the pop up note will work. Have you encountered this problem before? I really want to be able to leave a note for my animator.

followup - i was using quotation marks in my message, that seems to be not allowed. After removing them, the popup note displays properly! Is that operating as intended?
