  1. Thank You Amandeep. At least I will try blender 4.1, the decision to remove auto-smooth was quite questionable. I hope Your addon will work fine in future versions of Blender otherwise I will stay with 3.6.5 :(

  2. Agreed, B2PRZEMO. The decision to remove AutoSmooth was a bad one. Broke far too much stuff and for what? We have to go through our libraries and try and recover from this. We're staying on 4.0 for now.
