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.

For second:

You can use mask or set attribute "hidden" from windows explorer for these files.

some suggestions

Hi, I use "XRef Objects" a lot when I insert my library into project. But I found Project Manager's Merge>xRef Objects function doesn't 'Merge Materials' (as you can found in the Max's XRef Objects dialog box). Because of that, I cannot edit the materials after I insert my models via Project Manger's Merge>xRef Objects. Is it possible to include 'Merge Materials' as an option when merge via xRef Objects?

The other thing is: Is it possible to hide "certain files" for a particular folder? Let say I have a folder full of different types of lighting fixture (chandelier, wall light, floor light, table light...), then I create a category name "Chandelier" and include that folder, but since that folder includes other types of lighting, so I want to hide other models except the chandelier models, is this possible? This is because I don't want to change my file and folder structure in my harddisk as this will mess up the links with my projects. Thanks.
