Material workspace help!

How do i add the wood category to the default material default options without having to open file explorer to import it in rhino7? my workflow feels delayed when it comes to material changing for two reasons; inability to always preview material options in default rhino 7 and having to import the material each time for a new project. Any advice/help would be appreciated…

Hello- you can add materials to a template file so they will always be there when you start a project; but using the Libaraies panel may be the thing you need when you need to get at an existing material on the fly.
