Stop layer explorer from expanding?
show user profile  zeefusion
Hi all,

Is it possible to stop the layer explorer expanding when you highlight an object that is in it? It is really annoying when it expands showing hundreds of objects and then I have to collapse it to see a nice list of all the layers again.

Using 3ds Max 2016

anyway to completely nuke the shit out of the new 'layer explorer' and have something intuitive and user friendly?

I mean, the old layer view window was a piece of shit, but this new thing just irritates me. I'm contemplating migrating over 80 layers into different files and dealing with the loading/scene switching. Currently I've got one bad ass "masterfile" with everything separated into layers so I can quickly jump between assets and modify things on the fly...

Great thanks, should have looked there more closely. Auto expand selection is pretty obvious now I see it :)

Free Outliner script. It blows the standard layer system out the water (at least in max 2015). I couldn't live without it.
