VFB+ user and architect Maxim Borisov has recently suggested a script to help make his transform-intensive work easier:
This tiny MacroScript does exactly this. When executed, it opens the 3dsmax Transform Type-In dialog exactly where the mouse cursor is and sets keyboard focus to spinners. This allows rapid manipulation of scene objects for those users who rely on a fast-paced scene workflow.
edit (01/19/15) – the tool now takes the current axis constraints into consideration and focuses the relevant text field in the dialog.
