  2. In manager.py change the SHAPE_LIBRARY_PATH to the path where you would like to store your control shapes.
  3. In managerUI.py change SHELF_NAME to the name of the shelf where you want to create the example button for the manager.
  4. Run the following code, which will create a button, containing a dropdown menu, on the specified shelf.
import controlShapeManager
  1. (Optional) To get the colours working you need to get the images from here. Then in managerUI.py change ICON_PATH to the path where you've saved them.
