New Free Tool – Pin Comment

From a suggestion on the Autodesk Idea Board:

When you pin something there should be an option to write something in a “comments” field. If someone unpins that thing then the comment you wrote would pop up like a warning dialogue. This way they would know why the thing was pinned in the first place. 

I’ve created a new free tool that uses the DocumentChanged event and an External Event to prompt the user for a reason when an object is pinned. When the object is unpinned, it shows the username and reason.
