append all

when you want to transfert lots of objects

is there a way to select all or may be how to select whole layer or scene

to speed up things

now it seems that when you append an object it does not use existing materials it creates a new material

is there a way that i would use the equivalent material in the existing file where it is append?

EX: if i already have a material called black1

and whn i happen an object with the same name it should reuse the existing one in the fil
not create another new material

this take a lot of space - datablock


You can indeed append scenes. If you want to append multiple datablocks of the same kind, just RMB drag/click the ones you want. As for your material question, I don’t think there is any way to what you want, and I don’t see why it’s necessary.
