Hi everyone,

I have the LayerManager always docked at the side to keep the scene as tidy as possible. The problem is that selecting objects through the layer manager takes a considerable amount of time more than making the same selection from the viewport. Say I have isolated 20 objects that are the contents of one layer. Selecting everything through the viewport is instantaneous, but going Layer>Select child nodes or click-shift click through the manager takes like 6 seconds, which can easily take a minute or more for the more populated ones.

The total number of scene objects is easily in the thousands. I am using 3ds Max 2021. Do you have the same problem?
