Search and filter

You can filter the objects shown in the Scene Objects panel by clicking the dropdown (All types by default) at the top of the panel. You may also search your objects by typing into the Search by name field. To end a search and show all objects again, delete all text from the Search by name field.

Parent objects

Parent objects are a way of organizing a group of objects in a scene such that they can be moved, rotated, and scaled as though they are one object. The parent object itself is not an actual object in the scene, but instead represents its collective child objects as a group.

Note: Parent objects share many similarities to legacy folders in Sansar, with added functionality. For this reason, existing legacy folders and their contents have been converted to parent objects and child objects respectively.

The children of a parent object can still be manipulated independently and retain all their properties as individual objects.

For more information about parent objects, see Parent objects.

Object structure

 To view the various components of each object in the Scene Objects panel, right-click an object and choose Object structure. For more information about object components, see Object editing.

Toggle visibility and selectability of objects

You can toggle an object's visibility in the scene by clicking the Show/Hide icon next to its name in the Scene Objects list. If hidden, the object will be invisible in the scene but may still otherwise be moved, rotated, or otherwise manipulated, but cannot be clicked in order to select it.

This feature may be useful if an object in the scene is obscuring your view and making it difficult to work with other objects.

You can disable or enable an object's selectability by clicking the Disable/Enable object selection icon next to its name in the Scene Objects list. If disabled, you will not be able to select the object by clicking on it in the scene.

You may wish to disable an object's selectability if it is obscuring your ability to click on or select another object that is behind or inside it.

You can toggle an object's editability in the scene by clicking the Lock/Lunlock icon next to its name in the Scene Objects list. If locked, the object cannot be edited unless it is unlocked.
