Release Notes

1.0.3.0

2024-01-10

New Features & Improvements

  • Position Filter

    A new filter for UV Map, Modifier, Vertex Group, and Material Slot data types. This filter allows you to check if any of these data type items are at a specified position in their respective list in the Object Data properties panel.

    • Position is 1-index based (e.g., Position 1 refers to the first data type item in a collection of items).

    • Position refers to the position in the data type stack as seen in Blender's Data Properties panel and not the position in the PACKED Data Manager's data type list.

      Position 2 in the Position filter refers to the second UV Map in the UV Maps section of the Object Data properties panel.

    Supported Data Types
    • Material Slot
    • Modifier
    • UV Map

1.0.2.0

2023-11-14

New Features & Improvements

  • Added support for Blender 4.0.
  • Added Rename References functionality to Bone and UV Map data types.
    • In Blender, when renaming Bones or UV Maps, references to them by name inside Geometry Nodes, Shader Nodes, and Modifiers are not renamed, which results in broken references and broken functionality.
    • With Rename References functionality enabled, Bones and UV Maps that are referenced by name inside Geometry Nodes, Shader Nodes, and Modifiers are also renamed so that references remain intact.
  • Added ability to quickly access relevant documentation about a UI property or operator via:
    • pressing F1 while hovering the mouse cursor over a UI property or operator.
    • selecting RMB > Online Manual option via the Right Mouse Button context menu.
  • Improved Attribute Rename References functionality.
  • Updated several tooltip descriptions.

Bug Fixes & Optimizations

  • Fixed crashing when using the UV Map Move operation.
