Stan (or anyone),

is there a way to turn off grouping the copies/references?
In my current project I want to create copies in the same place within the scene hierarchy, not put them in a new group.

Thanks,
Marc

Well, that would require some significant effort to redo the logic because it would affect other things like ordering and moving the original. If you select all copies and move them out of the group it would take you seconds. Implementing optional grouping will take me hours if not days.

Just expand the group, click on the bottom layer, Shift+click the top layer to select them all, and drag them out of the group. Literally 4 mouse clicks.

Thanks for the quick reply, Stan,

and for your explanation. Of course I know how to get the copies out of the group, I just thought I had overlooked or misunderstood a setting. Will proceed like I already did then.

I'm still absolutely grateful for this script!
