I'm exercising the new TurnTool release candidate plugin and its basically an export plugin that outputs a C4D scene into its own format for web-viewing. When I click on the plugin entry in the plugins menu, any open Attribute Manager that is configured for Tools will show the TurnTool plugin's settings. But if there is no open Attribute Manager for Tools, or if there is but it is not the front tab in a group, nothing appears to happen.
How can they make it so it acts like the native C4D tool settings? By that, I mean like what happens if you double-click the selection arrow tool buttons or one of the pan/zoom/rotate tool buttons. In those cases, one of the following will occur:
If there is a Attribute Manager in the layout, it will come to the front, as needed, and will display the tool settings. If not, then a new Attribute Manager will open to display the tool settings.
Is there some API call that can be made or some setting that can be coded to get the attention of the Attribute Manager for Tools when this plugin is clicked in the plugins menu?
