 The Outliner 2.0 is a fast and easy to use scene management tool. It has a wide range of features, including selecting, hiding, freezing, linking and grouping objects in the "Hierarchy Mode". In the "Layer Mode" you can organize your scene by dragging&dropping objects from one layer to the other. What's more, the Outliner offers support for nested layers, to manage scenes more efficiently. The interface is nimble enough to keep it open constantly.

Hierarchy Mode using dark UI scheme, and maya icons

  

Layer Mode (including nested layers)

Material Mode

Additional Info: 

Compared to the previous version (1.6.1), there are many improvements. Most notable among them are: hugely increased performance, improved stability, nested layer support and many small tweaks to improve the ease of use. For a list of all changes, click here

Aah I see what you mean now!

Aah I see what you mean now! For some reason I was wondering why you'd want semi-transparent icons...
That should be a fairly straightforward one to add to the plugin version; so I've added it to the list:

you have before each object

you have before each object an icon for freezing and hiding. It would be nice if you add an icon to display the object in see-trough (alt-x)

What would these see-through

What would these see-through icons indicate? Or what should one achieve with it?

This sounds like a 3dsMax

This sounds like a 3dsMax problem, rather than an Outliner problem. You should report it to Autodesk and ask them to fix it.

hi, i installed it on max

hi, i installed it on max 2013... so far no bug to report.
the only annoying thing is, also in max 2012, that when the command panel is set to auto-hide... once the panel show, it open under the outliner so it's hidden. the same behavior it has sometimes with other max windows like the material editor. it's like the outliner has a function set like "always on top"
sure if needed i can set the outliner at the left... or the command panel on the left...

3dsMax 2013 support

I have ported the Outliner 2.1 to 3dsMax 2013:

Note that version 2.1.5 is only for compatibility with 3dsMax 2013 and above, and contains no new features.
