    HI

    Puzzles are great but are difficult to manage. We will quickly get lost when they become complex. My suggestions:

    It should be possible to shif+select several puzzles to move them or to duplicate. We can only duplicate a puzzle at a time. If we have a complex set of puzzles to duplicate, we need to make it puzzle by puzzle.

    We should be able to group puzzles in sets or folders. For instance, if we build 10 puzzles to hide related objects, lets say, city labels, we should be able to make a group called “City labels” to collapse them and avoid screen cluttering.

    We should be able to create sets of puzzles. Explaining better, if we are trying, for instance, to create an HTML object, after change it’s styled then bind it to an object, we should be able to save this group, for instance as a personal puzzle workflow group.

    Cheers

    We can only duplicate a puzzle at a time. If we have a complex set of puzzles to duplicate, we need to make it puzzle by puzzle.

    There is a way to duplicate multiple puzzles – save them in the library and retrieve when needed. Or just put them inside a procedure and copy and paste that procedure.

    to collapse them and avoid screen cluttering.

    There is a right click menu option called “Collapse” for that (see the screenshot).

    we should be able to save this group, for instance as a personal puzzle workflow group.

    Again, saving to the Puzzles library may help here.

    Hi Yuri

    I’ve used precisely all your suggestions by try and error. I’ve used the “inside a procedure trick” but it’s a very indirect way to get things done. It would be better to just Shift+Click several puzzles and copy or move them around. I’ve also tested the “Save to Library” but something is wrong with my setup because the puzzle is not saved to the library (MacOS HighSierra and Safari as main browser).
    Instead of folders, maybe there’s a more simple solution to get puzzles organized by using Tabs. Maybe it’s a better way to organize puzzles by groups. See image for example. Tabs in the top of the main Canvas.
    Meanwhile I’m going to test 2.7.1.
    Cheers

    The newly created entries won’t be shown in the library unless the page is reloaded. Cannot this be a reason for that?

    Agreed, the tabs feature is already in our plans.

    Hi Yuri

    No way. Tested everything and cannot add puzzles to library. I’,, research this further.

    Cheers

    If you run Blender from the terminal, does it print any errors when you save puzzles to the library? Also are where any errors in the browser console? The console can be opened with Develop > Show Error Console menu (Option-Cmd-C).

    Hi Yuri

    I’ll try to check. However it’s not a big problem for now.

    I use the creation of library but how you select all the puzzle.

    Hi,

    I use the creation of library but how you select all the puzzle.

    For now you cannot select multiple puzzle islands. But you can use the following trick: add them inside a procedure and then save.

    Reading this thread i’ve come up with this solution

    1) say I have multiple puzzles in a thread and i want to save that puzzle sequence as a single puzzle group to use again – on the face of it, this seems not possible as only puzzles following from a direct action can be grouped. – This means i may have to save all the parts of a complex puzzle sequence separately – OK not so… heres the work around

    Once you have your puzzle sequences all set up – click them together and then use a time puzzle (like “after 0 seconds do”.. place all the puzzles yu want to save in order together in the do part) now collapse the entire, name it and save it to library. Save project and refresh. Open new Verge file – go to library and unpack this saved puzzle – simply pull out all the original puzzle parts you need, delete the time puzzle you used to batch the puzzle sequence and – tada!!! you saved a bunch of time and that precious sequence of puzzles is ready to reuse – you’re welcome. :bye:

    Great idea but what if you have several procedures this will not work.

    Yuri How hard is it to use the developers tools and do our own blocks. Is this possible? TABS what will that do?

    Or could you develop a procedure wrap so other procedures can go into them? Then a big overall procedure over all smaller procedures works. But right now you can’t do that.

    Right click on a procedure.
    You can make a shortcut to that procedure.
    Put that shortcut into your master procedure, and repeat for other procedures.

    And yes you can make your own blocks!
    Check out the plug-ins section of the forum, and this.

    Hi GLIFTEK,

    Yes this is coming from me using your great plugins on modals. And I have a lot of procedures that are to many and would love to create my own GLIFTEK combos. I have 40 3d models that I am using your plugin on and don’t want to add every procedure.
    I am also using a master procedure like you did but still need to add everything to many times.

    There is a lot to read on the plugin link you sent is there a couple of areas I should look at that will get me there quickly?
