Shouldn’t - go to help>About installed plugins and make sure the serial took.
It shows up with a Green Plug as installed.
I’m working from the PDF Guide which seems to be written for one of the old versions that had a Tabs menu. So I guessed that it should show up under Window-Tabs now. Except that it doesn’t show.
It does show up as an action in the Customize dialog and there is a menu defined there for the Decimator Pane. So I’ve used that to place it in the Tabs menu by hand.
It should show up there automatically if installed and registered. Is it a minor bug?
Not usually a bug, as such. More an unfortunate consequence of the system design.
Presuming you are a previous user, DS will have recorded the layout, menus etc as used by you. Installing some plugins etc adds actions to the action list, and default menus etc, but DS still looks at its custom menu list from your prior use, not the (new) defaults. So after things like upgrades, and adding certain products/functions, you don’t see new and/or changed menu entries. The plus side is that you don’t lose customisations you may have made to menus, toolbars etc. The minus side is you don’t get updated menus with new, rennamed or moved menu entries and new toolbar buttons.
There was quite an argument about this back during the DS1 and 2 versions, with the consequence being that DAZ took it that they could keep the larger number of voluble users happy by preserving the prior user customizations rather than the priority of getting the new/chenged toolbars and menus to show at the price of previous customizations.
Throughout the DS 4 and 4.5 versions I’ve been noticing mentions of changes to menus and toolbars in the changelogs, which weren’t, of course, showing up for me after the version changes due to this issue. So after each version change, I’ve been going to Window->Workspace>Customize and using the Import button down the bottom to import the new default menus and toolbars so that the latest chages and new tools and menu entries show up ... and then redone my customisations after. It’s a bit of a pain, but that’s hoiw its been for a long time.
