Selective listing - Urban Furniture list

Is it possible (or potential) to be selective over what items appear in an urban furniture list table?

For example, if I have a large number of items in a model spread over large areas, it would suit to have a separate table for each area that doesnt show the complete list of everything in the model.

In some cases, we assemble playground tower units and each component is a separate block item. In this case, the ability to show the list of only these components next to this tower would be ideal, essentially overriding the contents of the list. I notice that lists can be exploded and modified, but once this is done, they become ‘dumb’ and no longer update.


You can chose, in the list properties, whether you want to list hidden objects and or objects in off layers:


So, properly using these checkboxes, you can achieve your goal by hiding the objects you don’t want in the list, or by moving them in a separated layer and setting that layer off.

This is useful to a point, but our products (custom urban furniture blocks) already have their own layer structure upon import to work alongside our templated system for keeping them on the right layer and with different types of sub components and install guide locations etc.

Would it be possible to have an additional tab perhaps alongside the Urban Furniture List within the Properties dialogue that shows all the items in that particular list with the option to switch them on or off directly?

Otherwise, for each list we need to switch on/off multiple items at various points and remember these combinations if we need to alter the contents of the list at any point as they only update if you open and then close the properties dialogue…
