So, what do I do if I have say, about 200 different active objects to handle with the event editor? It's not easy to click any of these objects. I can't really hide them either, because that messes up the order of the files when I do need them and I use most of these objects.

So.. how do I group them or anything? I'd be happy if there was a "group actives" button (not qualifiers).

I think I'm going to have start memorizing the names of active objects and using good old coding, lol.

You can right click one of your object's icons (Top row of event editor) and choose "Insert Folder" It makes a pair of square brackets and you can drag them around on that row and put all your active's between them. If you double click one of the brackets it closes the group and turns into a single Folder icon.

I don't know if that helps 'cause I didn't really understand your question, but I hope it does!

It's the kind of thing you only find when you get really angry at your event editor and right click around the screen spastically for a few seconds.

Or maybe that's just me :S

Ive tried to use that feature before but after spending a fair amount of time putting the objects into folders MMF2 crashed. So i didn't bother trying again.
