Options when amending a custom object

DaiG

When creating a custom Object (or Door or Window) I frequently have to make some amendments after the first attempt. It would be much less trouble if I could hold on to some of the settings that are already in place in the older version. For example I might want to leave the 2D symbol or the Preview picture. If possible (and I guess this might be trickier/less reliable) also keep the custom Surface Material designations.

What you can do in such a case is open the saved Object, delete the 3D script, then select the 3D geometry (which you saved as and Object) and drag-and-drop it in place of the deleted script, then save. This way you will keep your 2D script and preview, and only change the 3D script.
