The wiki docs for 2.6 says there is a button in the file browser for placing linked objects at the cursor, but, I don’t see it in the file browser (v2.68 and earlier).
Next question, after making a linked object a proxy, how do I reverse that to be able to use the new nifty “edit linked object” script. Once it’s becomes a proxy, you can not switch to that source file.
I want to be able to do both, place objects at the cursor and edit the object via that script.
Yea, I did notice that… what would be a solution? Kind of a catch of either guessing the placement of the object in the original, or making the object a proxy on the linked side. This makes the “edit linked object” option moot, since it’s no longer considered a linked object. So, you see the problem?
I posted a reply, but, the mod hasn’t cleared it, or, I messed up and didn’t submit. In any case, I resolved this. To be able to use the new script, “edit linked Objects”, you must make the object a group, (Ctrl-G), name it, then you can import it at the cursor and manipulate it like it was local. This is a great boost to productivity. Now my library will grow!!
