When I install the script to the shelf, nothing happens when I click it! I'm expecting a panel to show up with all the controls, but nothing! I'm on Maya 2013 Mac OS X Mountain Lion.

    Type icPolyScatter in the script editor and then drag and drop this command to the shelf. Select mel in the confirm dialog.

    Did you read the installation instructions? Nothing says to run the script in the scripts editor! Installation: Just copy the script to any script directory that is accessed via maya. Run the script by executing “icPolyScatter” (without quotes) in the script editor. You may as well build a shelf button for easy access. Please read before posting!

    [quote=oliiix]Maybe it's just best to put the script into the script/startup directory so you can skip the first step mentioned and directly call "icPolyScatter" in the mel field. [/quote] That's about exactly what the installation instructions in the description of the tool says.

    To everyone having trouble: I had to run the script each session inside the script editor. Nothing happens if I did, BUT from that moment on, I could call the script using the mel field at the bottom left. Just enter "icPolyScatter" into that MEL script field, press enter, and voila you'll get the options box for the poly scatter. Maybe it's just best to put the script into the script/startup directory so you can skip the first step mentioned and directly call "icPolyScatter" in the mel field. Enter the "icPolyScatter" into the MEL field, mark the text and drag it to a shelf with the middle mouse button to create a button. To everyone else saying to read the instructions: I couldn't find ANY instructions to this script anywhere...

    What do you mean by you did everything? Please read the installation instructions carefully and also take a look at the responses on this page.
