Hi,

Would it at all be possible to change the behavior in the lists (includes/excludes and scatter item lists, mainly, I guess) that when an instanced object is deleted the list doesn't simply say <deleted>. This makes it very very hard to figure out what is missing when items are accidentally deleted.

I'd be much more user friendly if it listed the name as usual with the appendix of "Deleted".

Hope this is clear and achievable?

Hi,

I see you moved this to scatter requests ...

But this is more of a general-corona request. Lights also have the include/exclude, as do decals, distance textures etc etc. I was hoping this request also applied to all these features.

+1 to this,
indeed would be great to see the name of object that was deleted
(just like we see what bitmaps/proxies etc. are missing in max file through asset tracking)

No reply to this? Would definitely be handy, and I presume not too hard to implement :)

Hi, this is reported now, thanks.

Note that this relates to objects which have a include/exclude list "previewer", such as CoronaDistanceMap or Scatter. CoronaLights don't have this "previewer" and the deleted objects will simply be missing when opening the actual Include/Exclude window.
Do you think it makes sense to have such a "previewer" for all Corona objects with include/exclude/add list?

I suppose this would be pretty handy... and at the very least good to be consistent.

While we're on the topic (sorry to add another request here, but it's related), I started another conversation a while back about having the ability to toggle the 'include/exclude' easier, without having to go into the extra settings pop-up thing. Can I also bump this, so perhaps it can be somehow incorporated into that previewer?
