Request: Duplicate Folders (In the Scene Outliner)
I am amending this question as per the request of Ben Halliday.
I want to duplicate folders in the "Scene Outliner" instead of just their contents. Right now the scene outliner has very poor organization capabilities. Creating allot of actors is necessary during the initial scene development phase, as there are often overlapping actors occupying the same space. I use this method to keep modular pieces, like rooms, groups of rooms, halls, Foyets, caves, etc.
Not being able to duplicate folders in the scene outliner forces me to make long names for every single actor, so that when I duplicate a set of actors, I can keep their location in the scene straight. Effectively what i'm doing is adding the entire folder structure to the name of each actor. This is annoying and bad for rapid production.
Is this request more clear? Let me know.
Thanks for the feedback. This is currently not possible inside the editor but our developers are looking into this feature. As a workaround, you can go into Windows Explorer and duplicate the folders there, then reload the project to show your changes in the Content Browser.
Have a good day.
Yes, that is much clearer and I'm sorry I misunderstood the first time. After testing your workflow, I can see how copying folders and their assets within the Scene Outliner could be very handy. I will ask the developers look into this.
Thanks for the feedback, TJ
