      Hi. I bought Project Mananger to solve my messy libray. I have a few questions / suggestions. Please, let me know if I´m posting in wrong section.

      I´m organizing: Each 3d model is inside a folder with preview file, .max file and textures. But thumbs has different names from max file, very different. Not lookalike with preview, _vray or _corona on it. Thumb has one crazy code and max file is named: Deco_set_7.max. Making very difficult to auto-assign

      So, a few questions:

      1. Is there a way to filter to show only files without thumbnail, so I can easily locate and fix manually?

      2. Is there a advanced video to find how to use the strings in auto-assign? (I tried, but everything appears on thumb, except the correct one)

      Thanks.

      Auto-assigning will not work if no system in file names.

      So you can render preview again or assign preview by dragging preview to related file

      Ok, I´m finding and renaming thumbs files. It´s a very manual process, but it´s pontual.

      But, in project mananger, is there a way to show only files that don´t have thumbs associated?

      I just need to see what I need to work on and avoid keep scroll for hundreds of files to find this ones.

      You can’t filter such files in the Project Manager but you can print such files to the maxscript listener using API

      ProjectManagerStruct = PMStructureInfo()

      selectedItems = ProjectManagerStruct.GetSelectedItemsInfo IncludeThumbnails:true

      for item in selectedItems where item.Thumbnail == undefined or not doesFileExist item.Thumbnail do
      format “%\n” item.Item

      [Resolved]
