Installation

Installing the add-on is easy. When you open Blender, press the hotkey Ctrl , anywhere in the 3D viewport and this will bring up the add-on preferences. Alternatively, you can also use the hotkey F4 which will show the file menu where you can click on the preferences link.

Once in preferences, go to add-ons and click the install button.

This will open up the Blender File View or file browser. Look for the add-on zip file you downloaded from the store then use the Install Add-on button at the lower right area of the window.

Use the install button on the zip file you got from the store not the contents.

After installation, look for the addon in the list or find it using the search bar by typing the add-on name then enabling it using the checkbox.

Installing the add-on this way makes it global for future Blender versions you install.

If you want to make it local, simply unzip the add-on zip file and copy extracted the add-on folder in the "addons" folder in the Blender file directory that can be found in "\blender-4.1.0-windows-x64\4.1\scripts\addons" - note that the blender version may vary per user.

In the add-on's preferences, you can find these additional settings:

  • Use Confirm Menu: This allows you to use the OK type redo panel instead for the random operators.

  • Show Usage Info: This can also be found in the settings submenu and just displays a helper text on the basics of using the add-on.

You can also use the Helper Font Size to increase/decrease the font UI for modal operations like the Auto Mirror and Extract Faces.

The hotkey can also be changed but avoid using the "x" button to remove the hotkey as this can cause a bug. Use this to replace the hotkey if you want then save the preferences and open up Blender again.

After installation, you can open the add-on menu anywhere in the 3D viewport using the Shift Q hotkey.

Most operators in Random Flow can work in edit mode so you can also open the menu in there.
