How do you transfer a hair item in the Content Library to the figure ? I've tried double clicking and drop and drag into the box but it still doesn't work ?

    Make sure the figure is selected before applying the hair.

    What's showing there are the material presets for the hair -- the hair itself is in the Figures folder. Load the hair with V4 selected, then select the hair and apply the material presets to change the color/style.

    Just found why, you have to be in the Pose & Animate file ! :red:


    For the record I had no idea to begin with just how important these top 4 tabs at the top are or will be as they're lost under so much other similar black and white text that it becomes information overload. If they could somehow be prioritised say by being labelled in the largest Red text possible and numbered 1,2,3 and 4 so that they stood out I think it could save a lot of time in future.


    Just my pennyworth but hope it helps....?

    I don't use these tabs at all, and never have. On the left hand side, I have the Content Library, Scene, Surfaces and Smart Content, and on the right I have Parameters, Lights and Cameras.

    I only ever really use the Content Library tab to find my stuff, and I fond that the search function works really well. You could try experimenting with your setup by saving what you have now under Window > Workspace > Save Layout As.., and any time you make a mess of the layout, you can reload the saved one and instantly get back to normal. You can save various layouts in this way, and you can load any of them when necessary.
