Summary0000375: Browse to model/particle/entity as part of 'Choose'?
DescriptionTrying to think about this, but so far haven't come up with a good design for it. When you select a model for instance, and go to the model field, you of course get the 'Choose model...' button. However clicking it doesn't scroll the model library to the selected object's model. So, if you wanted a slight variation of the model (a smaller painting instead of the large painting), you would have to browse to it all over again. So, it would be nice if this button also scrolled to the model in question.

However. Adding that obviously useful functionality would remove a smaller, but possibly also useful functionality - the ability to keep the model browser scrolled to where you the user want it scrolled - for instance for use in replacing a lot of models. If you wanted all small candles, instead of large candles, you could scroll to the small candle, select the object, hit Choose model, and then okay, one by one. With the fix above, this would no longer be so easy.

So, I'm not sure about a mechanism for this suggestion. Maybe a "Browse to selected" button right on the Choose model dialog? It could be disabled if nothing was selected, and enabled if something is selected. Clicking it would jump to the selected item's model identity.

Of course, if a 'Choose classname...' button is implemented, it'd be good to have it there as well (as well as particle).

"Choose Model..." button in the EntityInspector now scrolls to the currently active model. "Choose Particle..." already worked that way.

The ordinary behaviour (RMB in the OrthoView > Create Model...) is unchanged, this leaves the selection unchanged.
