Explorer#

The Explorer allows you to explore and manage items of the project in a hierarchical fashion. The Explorer is very similar to the Browser, the main difference being that the Explorer is better suited to display which attributes have been localized or overridden.

The Explorer offers two buttons to filter the view to display only localized or/and overridden items. The Explorer can also display which attributes are localized or overridden.

Locals#

By clicking on the Locals button, it is possible to filter the view to only display localized items. This is very useful when managing projects since it is possible to quickly see which items have their attributes localized as well as explore what are the attributes that are localized.

It is also possible to select and delete localized attributes by pressing Del. When deleting localized attributes, the attribute is unlocalized as if you unlocalized it using the Attribute Editor.

Overrides#

By clicking on the Overrides button, it is possible to filter the view to only display overridden items. This is very useful when managing projects since it is possible to quickly see which items are overridden as well as explore what are the overridden attributes.

It is also possible to select and delete overridden attributes by pressing Del. When deleting overridden attributes, the attribute goes back to its original value before the override as if you removed the override using the Attribute Editor.

By default, the view displays two columns Name and Type. Like with the Browser, you can add/remove columns by right-clicking on one of the displayed columns.

Type Display the item Type (Object Class)
