I recently started plugin development in c++ and came across something I don't quite understand.
When experimenting with Materials and especially AddUserPreviewScene() i found (at least for me) something odd.
In my main.cpp I only have the usual PluginStart/Stop and Message methods.
In my PluginStart method I try to add a new preview scene for materials using AddUserPreviewScene.
Here is my problem:
When I am adding a scene to a ID which is from a custom material I made everything works fine, and the scene only shows up at my material.
According to the docs. when passing the ID 0 it should show up for every material.
But it doesn't show up on any of the standard nor my custom materials.
I checked the returned value from AddUserPreviewScene which was true meaning everything should have worked.
So why am I not seeing my custom scene on any of the materials?
Hopefully someone can help me on that matter, really curious about that.
Thanks in advance,

Hi Florian, thanks for writing us.
I confirm that the AddUserPreviewScene() doesn't work as reported in the documentation and passing 0 as ID value doesn't add a custom material preview scene to be used with any material. Passing instead a value of "-1" will do the trick ;).
I will update the documentation accordingly.
