Default a couple questions

1. i executed a script in script editor that fixes the extrude bug in maya 8. it worked for me but every time i start a new project, i have to reload the script. is there a way around this?

2. is there a way to reset the icons for the different views that are located to the left and just under the manipulating tools? i was messing around with them one day and created a bunch of stupid configurations. is there some sort of reset option?

3. anyone know of a link or guide that outlines the new arrangements of tools in maya 8? where were they before and where are they now.

any help would be appreciated.

For the first question, just select all the text in the script editor then drag it up to the shelf using the middle mouse button. Presto! - a new button.

Couldn't find any info on a reset option for the panel layouts though. Guess it's a matter of deleting all the layouts and recreating from scratch, unless nuking your prefs directory will reset everything to defaults.

EDIT: Was just looking through the help, "Quick layout buttons" tells you which mouse buttons do what when over the panel icons. There's even a picture of the default setup there so you can put it all back together. But still no joy with the reset option..
