In search of Lost Plugins Utility Classes …

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Maybe the subject has already been discussed, but I didn't find it on the forum.

 

I had once found on http://www.vectordepot.com some very useful plugins to manipulate or manage Classes.
Especially those by Petri Sakkinen and Katerina Panagiotakis.
Today these plugins are mostly obsolete with the 2020 version and I miss them in my production process.

 

Two plugins in particular are obsolete. They are "Assign obj attrs to class.vsm" and "class, set object default.vsm".

 

The first one allows to modify the attributes of an object and once the result is satisfactory, to apply these attributes to the class of the object. This was very useful and efficient when you regularly create new non-standard classes from existing classes.

 

The second plugin: "class, set object default.vsm", was "simpler", but very practical, it allowed to give the default class attributes to an object at once (you can do it from the attributes palette, but you can't put a shortcut in it).

 

These plugins are obsolete, especially because new attributes (transparency, shadow, gradient, ...) have appeared and are not managed by these plugins.

 

I don't know if anyone has something similar in store? or wants to put their fingers in the code, but "Assign obj attrs to class.vsm" was really a very productive plugin and I would be willing to offer a few liters of coffee to whoever could give it back to me 😉

 

I didn't find @Petri Sakkinen on the WEB, but I attach his plugins and his notice for those who would be interested.

 

Thanks in advance.

Bonjour,

 

Peut-être que le sujet a déjà été abordé, mais je ne l'ai pas trouvé sur le forum.

 

J'avais trouvé jadis sur http://www.vectordepot.com des plugins bien pratiques pour manipuler ou gérer les Classes.

Notamment ceux de Petri Sakkinen et Katerina Panagiotakis.

Aujourd'hui ces plugins sont pour la plupart obsolètes avec la version 2020 et ils me manquent dans mon processus de production.

 

Deux plugins le sont plus particulièrement. Il s'agit de "Assign obj attrs to class.vsm" et de "class, set object default.vsm".

 

Le premier permet de modifier les attributs d'un objet et une fois le résultat recherché satisfaisant, d'appliquer ces attributs à la classe de l'objet. C'était très utile et efficace quand vous créez régulièrement de nouvelles classes non standard à partir de classes existantes.

 

Le second plugin : "class, set object default.vsm", était "plus simple", mais très pratique, il permettait de remettre d'un coup les attributs de classe par défaut à un objet (on peut le faire depuis la palette des attributs, mais on ne peut pas y mettre de raccourci).

 

Ces plugins sont obsolètes notamment car de nouveaux attributs (transparence, ombre, dégradé, …) sont apparus et ne sont pas gérés par ces plugins.

 

Je ne sais pas si quelqu'un a quelque chose de similaire en magasin ? ou a envie de mettre les doigts dans le code, mais "Assign obj attrs to class.vsm" était vraiment un plugin très productif et je serais prêt à offrir quelques litres de café à qui pourrait me le rendre 😉

 

Je n'ai pas retrouvé Petri Sakkinen sur le WEB, mais je joins ses plugins et sa notice pour ceux qui seraient intéressés.

 

Merci par avance.

The 'Assign obj attrs to class.vsm' is protected, so one cannot edit the script.

But from your description, this plugin should do the trick. It acts on a multiple selection also. Just unzip the archive and put the folder in your plugin folder.

Hello,
👏🏻 Thank you
@Peter Vandewalle  !!!
Great, that's exactly what I was looking 👍🏻
There are just shadows, text styles and textures that are not included. But it is already very good.
How can I thank you?
See you soon.
Edgar
