There’s been some cool activity refering Blender’s outliner recently, that made me remember of this little script… it is an attempt to simplify the handling of many objects in a scene.
It will create an empty -and a group if you want- and parent/link selected objects to that empty/group… you can change name and other settings from toolshelf or use F6.
a very simple script but anyway:
- name: for the empty and the group if created
- create group: so you can use the groups view of outliner
- cursor location: create at selection center or at cursor
- rename objects: add the name as a prefix for each children
