I know Fred is generally inactive... But hey, so am I... So here's a thought from one old-time-lurker to another.
How about a way to simply view a mesh within the tool, without having to extract it and run it through MDL Ops? No need for editing functions... But so many meshes have meaningless names... And I don't want to extract everything and run all of them through MDL Ops, and import all of them into Max... I get enough errors as it is importing one mesh, since my version of NWMax doesn't match my copy of 3DS Max.
Just a thought.
