What's that

In this example we have a plug-in containing 2 objects and a menu command. First we put them all in a folder named Sample1_Objects and zip them:

Then from Vectrworks Tools->Plug-ins->Plug-in manager or just simply by Crtl+Shift+z we open the plug-in manager dialog. By choosing Third-party plug-ins tab and by install... botton we load our zip file into Vectorworks:

By this Vectorworks automatically unzip the package file and copy evrything into the user plug-in folder:

and for Vectorworks to load unzipped package we have to restart it and now our objects are available to use:
