REQUEST: Highlight object name when editing
« on: December 27, 2016, 01:59:57 AM »
When we select "Edit object", there's no way to tell which object are we currently editing - there should be some kind of highlight/indicator on the objects list.

I want to add another list in the Scene tab for Instances. Since you edit an instance of an object, it would make more sense to highlight the instance in an instance list. Or maybe each object can have a list that can be expanded/minimized- and the object and instance get highlighted in scene tab.

Hm but changes made to an object are reflected on all instances, so in fact we're editing all object instances, not only the selected one.

hm- that's true. I guess I'll work on implementing that. I'm a little concerned that it might be confusing, but since all instances are essentially the same, I guess it makes sense to highlight the object.
