The Edit Object List dialog lets you select the objects to include in a dynamics simulation. Highlight objects from the Objects in the Scene list on the left, and then click the > button to place them in the Objects in the Simulation list on the right side of the dialog.

The Exclude and Include option buttons above the right window determine whether the items listed are excluded from or included in the simulation.

NoteAll the selection and inclusion dialogs in the Dynamics Utility are displayed and function similarly.

Interface

Objects in the Scene

To add scene objects to the simulation (assuming Include is chosen), select objects from the list on the left, then use the > button to move them to the list on the right.

Search Field

The edit box above the Scene Objects list lets you search for object names by entering names that use wildcards. For example, searching for "sphere*" finds all objects whose names start with "sphere".

Objects in the Simulation

To exclude objects from the simulation (assuming Include is chosen), select objects from the list on the right, then use the < button to move them to the list on the left.

Exclude/Include

Choose whether the simulation will exclude or include the objects named in the list on the right. If you choose Exclude, only objects in the list on the left are included in the simulation.

All/None/Invert

Affect the list on the left. All selects all objects, None deselects all objects, and Invert selects unselected objects and deselects selected objects.

Display Subtree

Turn on to indent the list according to the object hierarchy.

Case Sensitive

Turn on to use case sensitivity when searching for object names.

Select Subtree

Selects all objects in a hierarchy at the level you click and below.

Selection Sets

Displays a list of named selection sets. Choosing a selection set from this list selects those objects in the Scene Objects list.

Clear

Clears all entries from the Exclude/Include list on the right.
