Empty Maya Shelves
Has anyone ever come across empty maya shelves?

I'll set up a shelf and get ready to animate, only to find out the shelf is empty the next time I load up maya. I tried opening the shelf file and saving a copy but it still loads empty.

Tried both 2012 and 2013 but no dice. Its driving me crazy because I can see the mel file for the shelf and the buttons exist.

any suggestions ?

I'm guessing the shelves are in a location where you don't have write permission so check that out. You could also set up a Maya.env file in your "maya/xversion" folder and use the "MAYA_SHELF_PATH" variable.
