[quote="Mipey":1r8gf68u]It is not meant to appear on object bar of another layout, because it belongs to the layout it was created on. If you have to edit it, go to its layout. If you want to move it around or change it in another layout, you can use events to do so.
I've uploaded an example:viewtopic.php?f=16&t=2981
P.S.: Perhaps it would make sense to have a list of global objects somewhere.[/quote:1r8gf68u]
so it is intentionally like this. it would be much better if I could place the objects like i would in the layout it was created in. using events to place objects does not seam feasible to me. i have one project were there are a lot of instances of one object that need to be placed specifically. it would drive me crazy trying to place potentially a hundred instances of an object with events. and that is just one layout. duplicating from layout to layout just seams the only way.
