Search Autodesk® Maya® menubar for easy access to all of the menu items.

General Usage Instructions

The commands can always be refreshed by clicking on the magnifying glass button. The script now also tries to install a hotkey on the Ctrl + Alt + Space combination. If there is already a hotkey on this combination the hotkey will not be installed. This hotkey will set the focus to the search command and open up the menu if there are any matches.  


It is also possible to store your pins and create different pins sets for different tasks, meaning you can create your own custom menu. This functionality can be accessed by clicking the magnifying glass button.




The installer that ran when you downloaded this plug-in from Autodesk Apps Store has already installed the plug-in. You may need to restart the Autodesk product to activate the plug-in.

To uninstall this plug-in, exit the Autodesk product if you are currently running it, simply rerun the installer by downloading it again from Autodesk Apps Store, and select the 'Uninstall' button, or you can uninstall it from 'Control Panel\Programs\Programs and Features' (Windows 7 / 8 / 8.1/10) or Add/Remove Programs, just as you would uninstall any other application from your system.
