First change to the directory where the link should be placed: CD %home%\Documents\Luxology\Content Then enter this line at the Command Prompt to create the Junction: mklink /J Assets "%home%\Dropbox\Modo\Assets" Note the location of your Dropbox and Content folder may vary this is the default location.

Modo – Make Inactive Same as Active Toggle

In Modo you can make inactive Meshes either Wireframe or the same as the active Meshes. This usually involves going into the 3D Viewport Properties via the ‘o' key, you can assign a shortcut but what if you want a shortcut that toggles the behavior well you can do that too by using ‘?+‘ which is the toggle instruction for all boolean commands. So in the Map to shortcut dialog use this instead of the given TRUE or FALSE

Modo remove Layout Tab

Modo supports customisable Layouts displayed in the form of Tabs at the top of the UI. Adding a new Layout is as easy as clicking the small + symbol on the right of the Tab pane. Removing a Tab is a little more obtuse, it requires a few clicks in the Menus. As the Tabs represent Layouts you go to the Layout menu and select Delete… to open the Delete Layout window.
