3rd version of Project Manager gains a lot of new features to manage 3D Assets. 
There is most unique from them – the ability to assign custom previews to materials, associate files with materials, and create a gallery of files associated with any type of assets including materials. 
You can also write a description for material and, of course, assign categories to materials.

Hi

I will add the ability for merging materials for xRef objects.(Ready! See version v.1.60.05)

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.

>>WHY you CHANGED your licensing scheme BACK!!
That was three years ago and no more than a week.
Sorry, but soon I'm not going to change the licensing system.

No, we did not discuss it.

No, we did not discuss it. You just told it as it was. That's 2 different things ! If we discussed this, you would have explained WHY you CHANGED your licensing scheme BACK !! I just wanted to support Simms request here, because I do not agree with this licensing. Whether you change something or not, is fully up to you.

If $100 more gives me the freedom to use a plugin where I want, YES... I surely would, but then the users who just need to use it on one PC, would object !! This is NOT in the first place about money: this is about connecting a license to a user ... not to just ONE machine !!! Discount coupons don't help in this matter. What I meant is that you could connect the license to the VRay dongle.

Hi Erik. We already discussed

Hi Erik.
We already discussed about this.
Also you already have a discount coupon.
P.S.
The cost of Vray ~1000$ :)
You agree to pay +$100 or more for a dongle?

+1

Just want to add to the request for supporting a second machine. Know only 2 companies with this strange licensing scheme (incl. MultiScatter !!!) Since I only use VRay (with ONE dongle!!!) it is simply impossible to use 2 machines at the same time ... so why not the possibility to tie it to that dongle. Even Max on SUBS allows 2 machine !!! SUPPORT freelancers !!!!

Hi Brett.

Sorry but each license can be used only on 1 computer.

I will send the coupon code with discount for your next buy.

laptop/workstation?

Hey -
Been using File Path Finder for a while and just got Project Manager and so far it seems great too. I also just got a laptop, and while I'm pretty sure the answer is no: is it possible to install it to my laptop as well as my workstation? I can with Max and most of the plugins I use and it would be great to have office/laptop in perfect sync.

Thanks /b
