Exclamation PNG object textures not updating

Hi, in previous versions, when I made an update on a PNG file, it would update immediately. Now I have to reload the file. Is this a bug or I am missing something?
And the extrude tool? Seems that there are no more options to close the 3D object.
Regards,
Vasco

In reality I had to exit and run AC3D again

Hi, I am using the last 8.3.11 beta and latest X-plane plugin

I have been with other issues, cannot recognize Panel_General.png (or even Panel.png) when applying panel manipulators in X-Plane, giving the message that I am using manipulators on meshes without panel texture (I checked the panel regions box with the appropriate file size). When running the latest X-Plane 11.30b5 (and in the older ones) the panel_general.png textures are displayed as well as the acf_cockpit_texture.png. But there are no interactivity with panel textures or even the manipulators. In Plane Maker the panel_general.png textures do not show up.
Donīt know if it is the x-plane path (that is now different, being at objects folder), some wrong writing file or the x-plane plugin that is not recognizing the panel texture file.
I really like your product since it is not very complicated.
Is there any X-Plane Plugin manual? I've been learning step by step without support just in the forums and youtube.
You may see my work here:
Thanks

Great work!



I've just tested the texture updating by texturing with a png and then editing+saving the png. The texture was automatically reloaded into AC3D fine. That was on Windows - are you using the Mac version?


It sounds like you may have a problem with the texture paths/locations. As far as I can remember, nothing with the texture paths changed in the AC3D plugin but X-Plane may have changed.



Let us know if you work it out.


There is a manual here: http://www.inivis.com/forum/showthread.php?p=31459

The extrude tool has had some options removed (to reduce the sometimes confusing complexity) due to the introduction of Object->Thicken.

For me is much more simple this way. I just provide one more section to closethe object, since I am not concern at all about normals!
