Toolbar Manager for trueSpace7.61

Use to select toolbar nodes, save them to an internal store or a file library. Load from the store or library. Temporarily hide the toolbars to get them out of the way when switching to modelside. Easily save toolbars and transfer them to another layout.

persistent base install required

A version of this script comes pre-installed in the Unofficial trueSpace Updates -


  1. install the persistent base if not already installed
  2. drag the node into the link editor
  3. delete the node from the scene after install is complete
toolbar control


  • press the TB button to open the toolbar manager
  • View the help menu
  • note: "open toolbar" was renamed to toggle toolbar
  • note: "select and save toolbar" was renamed to ADD TOOLBAR TO MENU
  • new menu item: save toolbars state - save toolbars that have been added to the toggle toolbars menu
  • new menu item: restore toolbars state - restore toolbars and toggle toolbars menu items
  • new menu item: DELETE TOOLBAR - permanent deletion of toolbar

general usage is to create custom toolbars, name them and add them to the toolbar menu and save toolbars state so they can be used on context reset and layout changes. save to library is for more permanent toolbar storage for backup and sharing toolbars


  • add toolbar to menu - adds to permanent store
  • save toolbars state - saves current active toolbars
  • refresh toolbar menu - opens all custom toolbars from the permanent store
  • restore state - only restores last state of toolbars, does not close any open, just adds to them
  • show hidden - reads from tempStore then deletes it
  • display all - reads from store


Toolbar Manager

                    Testing your toolbarScripts
                    jScript Function Set
                    function deletetoolbar()
                    if(Node.Exists(theframe)) WindowsManager.CloseWindow(theframe);
                    Move the above line to the top else the toolbar frame is frozen in 3D Space
                    loadToolbarFromLibrary script
                    ERROR if fileList is Empty
                    And or if you try to Load
                    Note: These two objects did not exist in the Objects - UserToolbars library
                    //delete the node in windows manager space
                    if(Node.Exists("/Project/Windows Manager Space/" + nodename ))
                    Node.Delete("/Project/Windows Manager Space/" + nodename );
                    The above statement should be changed to > WindowsManager.CloseWindow(theframe);
                    else the toolbar frame is frozen in 3D Space
                    else the toolbar shows on the users Desktop
                    Toolbars are always in 1D
                    Save state does not seem to honor 2D
                    Could be your use of:
                    Node.Value(butt,"Package") = "{E0C3ABBA-AA1C-4A09-8089-9ED4A8AC63B9}";//needed for menu button
                    That said though, if a user copies buttons from existing toolbars, then changing their attributes will break their functionality, for instance your newest Snapping and NURBS toolbars. This is very concerning!
                    What is your thoughts?
