It happens every once in a while... a window, like the material editor or the environment panel, for instance, won't show up when opened, they're somewhere outside the monitor's resolution. As opposed to manually look for those windows positions on ini files or sometimes reconfiguring dual monitors layout, it would be good to have a "reset all windows positions" and move all windows back to the center of the main 3dsmax window.85 votes
only small number are not be able to be reset at this moment in Max 2014
It is really hard to find the proper action in the Customize UI dialog because they have no consistent naming scheme. Some actions are called 'Toggle XYZ' whereas others are called 'XYZ Toggle'. IMHO, the naming should be '[noun/subject] [action/predicate]'.18 votes
there are reasons one needs to reset the ini files, as they are hidden files for normal users, resetting from inside 3ds max would be a great option9 votes
max doesn't raise errors if it can't save settings into some files, because the current users has not the file rights to write.
IMHO some user setting files are stored into %ProgramFiles% and not into e.g.: %USERPROFILE% or the 3dsmax project folder
e.g.: the "DefaultUI.kbdx" file. So a normal user can't change the keyboard shortcuts.
IMHO 3dsmax should display a error message if some settings can't be stored, because of a access denied.
