  4 Weeks Ago shared by many users\Pc

Hi everybody!
I'm working on some custom shelves in python...not a simple thing for me:-)
Is possible to have a single for many pc?...because in there i call the python script with the shelf and i would like it to work for all the users...does any of the maya search path overwrite the default search location for the file?
Thanks Alot!
  4 Weeks Ago is a user settings file, so you wouldn't want to override that. It's not the right place to put scripts for shelves. Instead, put them in a module and import the module in the shelves.

For example, if your shared directory containing scripts is F:/Scripts, have users add this to

import sys
path = ''F:/Scripts''

to add the script directory to the search path. Then you just import scripts in your shelf scripts:

def run(): 
 import helper_script

to import the F:/Scripts/ module.

Maya modules are a more elegant way of doing it, but this works.
