    for persons that are having lot of crashes or unusual behaviors, I found out that deleting the prefs folder (and saving your hotkey file because It's precious) will lead to make not only Crease+ infinitely more stable but also Maya :smile:

    I have a question about hard bevel. Where can I find bevel type, such as Round, Star, and Average? BTW, I'm using 0.98 version.

    i bought crease+ 1.0 recently, and im noob about maya too...
    this is reaally fascinating tool so learning it with variable shapes...
    but some questions. i've met some broken faces after hbevel work like this.

    (and i cant see icons :( maybe install problem...?)
    these faces ar removed by adding extra edges for corners, but is there any options for that?
    adding edges before hbevel work makes 
    problem like this...

    sorry about noob questions but it'll be very helpful for me....

    @dimlight someone already pm about the bevel issue , I'm releasing a fix really soon, For the Icon, make sure your installation is right and you have the CP_Icons folder in the same directory with the script file :smile:

    Maya still crash with HBevel after undo. Happens not all the time but quite often.

    Maya still crash with HBevel after undo. Happens not all the time but quite often.
    Hi Waywo, yeah I have to second what pOgOstyle said. 

    I am in love with this tool but the HBevel is causing a little grief unfortunately. So basically I thought it was just Maya being weird but the HBevel does really crash maya quite a lot. Basically, I select object in object mode, hit Hbevel and then undo, 2 seconds later it crashes. This happens I would say around 3 out of 5 times. Sometimes it's stable, sometimes it crashes. 

    Using Maya 2016, SP6, Windows 10, all up to date.

    Aside from the Bug, OMG the booleans! The booleans!!! AMAZING, I would have gladly paid just to get the boolean functionality. 

    Also, could you point me in the direction of how to properly use all the functions of the plugin?
    For the life of me I just cannot get the 'curve mesh slice' to work. It's probably something I'm doing wrong. I tried to look for how to use it in your previous tut videos on youtube and played with in Maya, but couldn't figure it out. 

    Cheers

    HBevel Crashes for me too, fairly often, on Maya 2016 and 2017. Seems like it happens more when I undo quickly, but that could just be my perception.

    @PatsuKiki documentation will be made, mesh slicer works with orthogonal views, or with dominant viewplane in perspective (if you mostly face x, it's slice towards x axis and etc...)

    @all , lol when I though it was fixed, I'll go back to it :smile:
    sorry for the crashes, please keep saving before using this evil thing also,
    does it occure when you use HBevel in face mode ?

    @witos you have to, this is normal, open then close it .. IF you really want it :
    -get into the script and delete the very last line "cpUi;"
    -modify the commands within the marking menu, and add before : source "CreasePlus.mel"; followed by the marking menu command

    @WaYWO Thanks a lot! it's work for me. In last version Physical Crease works with chamfer, i know that a i can disable it in nodes, but in earlier versions it works more comfortable - without chamfer.

    Bought (& downloaded) it last night. Using ShapeShifter i get "CreasePlus.mel line 713: Unable to start ShapeShifter,you have to purchase or update ShapeShifter for CREASE+ support." But since I've purchased it and downloaded it last night I'm guessing that's not the actual problem...? I've tested it in both Maya 2016 & 2017 (on windows 10).

    I bought this, and look forward to using it. However, the lack of proper documentation is a serious issue. Could you please prioritize creating the documentation that you have been mentioning for months? Tremendously detailed documentation would NOT be needed, but something more than a single image plus some videos without audio please. 

    I do appreciate the script! I don't want to emphasize my complaint. It seems like it will be a great addition for doing hard surface modeling, assuming I can make the most of it by reading documentation.

    Hi, I just bought your plugin which is great so far, but I have a few bugs that bother me a lot.

    -The most annoying is that my Maya crashes a lot since the new plugin. It's Extension 1 + SP6.

    -Everytime I launch maya I have to go back to the hotkey editor and reassign it.

    -The plugin won't work with the command written in your doc or in your video. The only way to make it work in my Maya is to write : source "CreasePlus.mel";

    I don't know if this can cause troubles.

    Can you please help me ? Thanks ! 

    Ps : Maya crashes nearly everytime I use your plugin I don't understand why !

    Hi, i bought Crease + and i was just testing the boolean feature. I keep getting some nasty bugs and behaviors with the mesh when I modify faces, say rotate them. Also sometimes the object gets skewed if you rotate it. I added here an image to show you what i mean. Ktools works absolutely fine with the same situations.

    Getting consistent unpredictable behavior from Hbevel, essentially exploding my meshes in strange ways or doing nothing it all, not able to selectively apply it to edges and faces. Also getting the undo crash.

    Documentation would be really nice.

    Recently bought the crease plus,  the bool, panel bool, shape shifter, keep bool and mesh slicer don't work. When l click the tools l get error file in various CreasePlus.mel lines using bool tools. When using the shapeshifter l get unable to start ShapeShifter , you have to purchase or update ShapeShifter for CREASE+ support

    If you get that message then you either didn't purchase and installed ShapeShifter (which is a separate tool sold in ADN Modeler Tools)
    or something was messed up during the installation process of either Crease+ or ADN Modeler Tools.

    Pinging @WaYWO for the full support, he should be here asap :)

    I'll take a guess that you're working in too large or small of a scale, or you have geometry intersections very close to a hard edge. Like extruding a face of a cube and scaling it only a very small amount.

    @onionhead_o  great idea ! thanks.
    @OvidiusTiberius sorry yeah , rotating boolean objects errors are random, will fix it.
    @Bizzarro you still get errors with Bool commands ?

    and ALL  : 

    been busy for a long time but I won't let you guys down, I just need to finish some projects and I'll be back in the scripting game stuff. Then I'll update and fix everything I can , until that , here's the complete (I Hope) documentation, you will be able to find it under the Help Menu in Crease+ window (verify your mails for that) : https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Ry1IWGk2MWJefsQh0aUKjp3_3XPEKXVA_cKxnJnI_Zk/pub

    yup I didn't take scale into account because I always use the default setup, just added this on the list of things to fix

    Hey, I just got Crease+ set up and I tried using the physical crease option on Maya 2017, and I am getting a bevel result much like some of the above posters. Is there any indication why this would be happening on 2017?
