This toolbox gives access to the scene objects.

The object list

The scene objects are listed there. Each object is displayed by its name and a type icon.

Some objects names are in bold : this means they have been modified since the scene was opened.

Object types

Each object is displayed by its name and a type icon:

  • environment-2014.png Environments
  • instrument-2014.png Instruments
  • material-2014.png Materials
  • medium-2014.png Media

Renaming an object

To rename an object, select it first, then click on its name. This opens an editor. Two objects of the same kind (e.g materials) cannot have the same name.

Editing an object

Double clicking on an object opens it in a new object tree editor tab in the main window. You may also right click on the object, and select "Edit"

Selecting multiple objects

Select a first object by clicking on it, then use ctrl-click to select other objects, and shift-click to select an object range.

Deleting objects

First select one or several objects, then either:

  • Click on the delete-2014.png button
  • Press "Del" on the keyboard
  • Right click on the selection, then choose delete-2014.png Delete object

Importing objects

Importing objects is not done through the Object list toolbox, but with the "File > import-2014.png Import" menu. You can choose to selectively import an object type only, or all objects from a file.
