The 'Favorites' feature

Hi, I love the 'Favorites' feature in the PM, but is it possible to create more than one 'Favorites'? Let say 'Favorites #1', 'Favorites #2', "Favorites #3'..... or even rename it like 'Favorites - Table Lamp', 'Favorites - Floor Lamp'...? I think that way will make categorizing even more flexible.

Also, If I drag 3dmodel that has same material name
in my scene into the viewport,
the "Duplicate Material Name" dialog box will appear but 3dsmax will freeze.

Thanks!
I solved this issue...

But sometimes, when I drag the same model into the viewport,
I got this message
"MAXScript dotNet event handler Exception --
Runtime error: Attempt to access deleted scene object".

But not find any problems with this. Next time after you get this message
please generate the bug-report (Menu "Project Manager"==>> "Create Support request") and send to me.

Error message in version 1.63.11

Hi, I just updated to v.1.63.11. I love the "Merge as xRef Objects" new feature. However, sometimes, I have no problem drag my 3d model into the viewport. But sometimes, when I drag the same model into the viewport, I got this message "MAXScript dotNet event handler Exception --Runtime error: Attempt to access deleted scene object".
Also, If I drag 3dmodel that has same material name in my scene into the viewport, the "Duplicate Material Name" dialog box will appear but 3dsmax will freeze. (I am using 3dsmax 2009)

Can you verify the problems? Thanks.
