Content Browser Drag & Drop
by Nick Baker on Oct 24, 2013 at 10:26:57 pm
I'm trying to add a library of windows / doors etc. into the User section of the Content Browser (R15) This works okay but I can't drag them into my scene, they also open up in their own scene file. I know I can just copy them across to my project file but I don't understand why they work differently to objects in other libraries eg. visualize/objects/chairs.
I have noticed that in the info tab of the content browser the objects supplied as standard by C4d are described `kind: Object Preset' wheras the objects in my library are described: ` kind: File Preset' What is the difference?
When I model my objects I always group them together into a null object - I can't see what I am doing differently. I seem to remember some time ago doing something similar on an earlier release of C4d and there was an option to merge the file but maybe I'm wrong.

I have been saving my files to a project directory and then using Windows Explorer to drag and drop them into the Content Browser (I have made a sub-directory in the `User' presets folder) - is that not the right way to do it?
