Save As File Path and File Name

Hello Everyone,

I have had a look at the forums and the help documentation and I am unable to achieve what I desire.


When the user selects 'Save As' (or save if file previosuly unsaved) max uses a path and filename (and file type, this case .max) from a predefined custom variable.

Current Attemps

I have tried:

  1. callbacks.addScript #filepresave "test.max"
  2. getSaveFilename filename: (file_path+file_name)


#2 I found is very close to what I need, except if I use this with the '#filepresave' 2 dialog boxes will open which is not desirable.

Please note I am not after replacing the current 'save/save as' dialog box, all I wish to do is have the file open at a predefined directory and a filename (which will contain the .max extension) inside the 'filename' field. I also do not wish to have a seperate 'save/save as' UI.

Any suggestions is greatly appreciated.

Thank you
