Obviously this is not as straightforward a question as it is in, say, photoshop, but...

Would it be possible to have an option in Lightwave Modeller (and, I suppose layout, although I haven't really tackled this part of the package yet!) to do some kind of low-res render for purposes of creating an icon to represent the file in Windows.

Thus allowing us to distinguish between similar files without having to consult other documentation or opening the file to see what it is.

I have a number of files which are variants of each other and it would be a helpful way to tell them apart.

Additionally, if the file format could include some kind of facility for adding notes to the file - and better still if these can be read by Windows so that they can be seen without (again) opening the file.

Thanx.

Kind Regards
Dave
