Appeal to both Autodesk and Pier Janssen to fix Outliner in Max 2014

Outliner has become a part of my toolbox and can never go back to using the default layers manager. BUT alas, Max 2014 broke it and it crashes Max when you try to open Outliner.

Hopefully both Autodesk and PJ can resolve this issue soon.

Thanks,
Rom

Pier is already working on a Outliner rewrite AFAIK
And i'm using Outliner with Max 2014 without crash problems, but there might be other problems i haven't experienced yet with the Max2014 + Outliner combo...

I wonder if its crashing on cui.registerDialogbar like the Managed Named Selection Set dialog was doing for me. It was a Windows 8 issue. Are you on Windows 8?

Comment out that line in the script and see if it works?

I doubt that Autodesk takes on bug reports from this forum, so I would suggest that you report it to them directly.
As for myself, I currently don't have the time to look into the issue. But it very much seems like a regression bug in 3dsmax, rather than an Outliner-specific issue. So I doubt there's much I can do anyway..

I hope it gets resolved soon though!

I personally want a proper layer manager (like The Onion) which is copied from Maya, just as Outliner is.

It looks like someone found a workaround for the issue. Have a look at the latest post on scriptspot:

Unhappy Sad... Poor QC

It seems Autodesk didn't thoroughly test 2014 under Windows 8. Wonder what other problems besides these 2 major ones we have?

That was my case (W8-64 user)... I just deleted that part of the code in "ui.ms" and it stopped crashing
