Reload library file proposal (UI)


Here a UI proposal for the blender outliner, just a little button in the ouliner for reload a file linked.

I’m working on a project that requires a lot of references, normally I’m making changes with 2 or 3 “blender” opened at the same time and I’m only available to reload a single file by saving and open again the main scene.

I tried something similar to this a while back, it wasn’t in the outliner though.

Basically it was a button on the tool bar that you clicked ‘sync links’ and it would save the file, then re-open it all with one button, which would show all of the changes made to the linked files.

It would be nice to have a dedicated window for managing linked libraries, or at least a section in the outliner with some more features.

For the button in the toolbar idea, it would just be one operator that runs the ‘save file’ & ‘open file’ operator.
