Saved states not available?

I am excited about the new saved states feature - but just tried to upload a new GH file and am unable to find the saved state option. I can see a tab with an option to “only show my states” when I view the file on SD in my library, but no way to save a state. I also have no option to save a state when I imbed an iFrame. I am using Rhino 6 with the latest SD plugin and have a Shapediver PRO account.


On the Saved States tab, you can create a new state by clicking on the + button at the top right of the panel:


Do you not see this button? If you just missed it, I will make a note that we should make it more prominent in the panel.

Regarding iframes: when a model is embedded through an iframe, anyone can open an anonymous session to the model and therefore saving states does not make sense in this context. A saved states is associated with a ShapeDiver account. The one thing we will include with the iframe in the future is the list of public saved states created by the owner of the model.

Here is documentation about the current state of the feature: Saved States

Thanks! I was hoping it would be available in the iFrame, but at least public saved states will be a good start.

My model does show the saved states tab, and yet I cannot find the “+” button to save a state:


Looking forward to being able to include saved states!

Just to be clear: are you saying that you do not see the + button in the model view page on the platform, or in the iframe? Could you link to your model here so I can investigate if the problem happens in the platform?

I can’t see the “+” button in the iFrame or on the platform, and my model is private. I could not see it when I changed the model to public either. Could it be a result of the type of subscription I have?

You experience this issue because you have a legacy “Pro” subscription. When the saved states were released, we included the feature in all new plans but omitted the “Pro” plans. We will fix this today and include saved states with “Pro” subscriptions as well.
