Organizing Content by Collection

The Collection feature lets you:

  • Break the boundaries between different packs and re-organize the items.
  • Collect useful items for individual projects, and share them with other team members.

Follow the steps below to add interested items to your own collection.

  1. In the Item View, switch to a content category using the Category Buttons on the top, or selecting the category nodes in the tree-view.

    * By activating the Show Subfolder Items checkbox, you can directly view the items across various content folders.
  2. Pick one or more items. Right-click on them and choose the Edit Collections... command from the context menu.
  3. The Content Information panel appears with Collection tab selected.
  4. Type in the desired collection name ("Field Trip Collection") in the text field. Press the Enter key or click the + button.
  5. The selected items are added to the new collection at once.
  6. With the same steps, you can also add any other item(s) from a content pack to the collection.
  7. If you want to remove a collection setting, hover the cursor over the collection and click the "X" on it.
  8. Now you can see the collection folder shown under the My Collections node below the tree-view of each tab.
    • Item View: The number after the collection name indicate the amount of the items that are grouped by this collection. Click the collection string to show the items in this folder.
    • Pack View: The number shown indicates the numbers of the packs and items grouped with this collection.
      1. This number indicates the amount of packs that contains the items added to the collection.
      2. This number indicates the total amount of items contained in the collection.
    * Refer to the Using Collection Editor section to find more information on searching, renaming, creating / deleting, and showing / hiding the collection folders.
  9. Once the collection nodes are created, you can collect any items on the content shelf to a collection by drag-and-drop on the screen.
  10. Apply content that you have prepared in the collection folder to start a specific project quickly.
  11. If you are collaborating on a project, the collection settings can be exported and shared with other team members in a workgroup.
