I’ve noticed this a handful of times, where a node like Get Data isn’t found in the preset manager. Clicking the Update button always fixes it for me.
The last time this happened, instead of clicking Update, I started Process Monitor and did a few more searches in the preset manager. In my case, Softimage searching only the compounds, not the presets in %XSI_HOME%\Data\DSPresets\ICENodes. That’s why nodes like Get Data weren’t found.
Clicking Update forced Softimage to search both the compounds and presets.
Maybe this will help to get the problem noticed (and fixed?), It’s not a big one admittedly, but still. When I reported it, “they” hadn’t yet heard of the problem yet…
“…Clicking Update forced Softimage to search both the compounds and presets…”
is it possible to execute this from with a script?
