I am looking at the outliner and I am trying to get an object to parents another object. I try dragging one or under the other but it wont move. How do I make an object child another?

select the child (RMB) - select the parent (Shift-RMB) and then ctrl-p


But not in the Outliner; it doesn’t do that kind of thing yet. You need to do it in the 3D window.
