Default Data text on objects

Hi all, just started playing with AC3D - neat!

One point of confusion I have is that I think I want to add 'object data text' to objects, as urls for VRML or texture details for povray.

I put stuff into the box at the bottom of the 'object properties' dialog (F9) but it seems to be ignored - the text output from either file type doesn't contain the text I put into the data text.

The screenshots from the manual don't seem to match my 5.0.21 installation, not sure if that's significant, perhaps I'm looking at the wrong dialog?

Am I missing something else?

Any assistance appreciated

Hi,

For POV texture settings, check your File | Settings menu item and go to the "Files" tab. Make sure you've checked "Use object data for POV files" --- and you can also specify your pov header here.

I haven't personally used POV Ray for rendering, so perhaps someone else may have more info, but hope that helps.

I believe there were some interface changes in 5.0.21 that are more recent than the manual screenshots, but the info should *essentially* match up.

Good luck,

Dennis
