Changing Content Directories has always been a 'do I have to do this again?' kind of thing, but I just realized a great way to deal with it.:foreheads

Simply open the Config Menu window and drag the 'Recent Content Directory' command into the 'Main menu/Items' area, and/or use the LScript commander to create a button of projects you know you're going to be using constantly, like the 'Lighting' directory I have here:

That's a nice method. I also add 'Set Content Directory' and 'Recent Scenes' together with 'Recent Content Directories' and place all three of them under Items->Load. Works really well for me.

Toby, your interface looks a lot like Inspire to me! Must be the colors.

That makes sense!
I've always had Set Content hot-keyed, but it's the browsing that really I'm sick of.

Busted! I'm a closet Inspire user!

No, I just reverted the color scheme back to 7.5; the best interface ever made. If only I could get the gradients back too
:cry:

I don't need to do any of that because I've set my content directories up differently from the 'norm' to solve this exact headache!

Means I have to gather a folder from the Scenes, Objects and Images directories when I want to back up a specific project, but it's less hassle than having to change content directories everytime I load a different project.

Each to their own I guess!
