Prefabs can't be separated?

Recommended Posts

I'm using the most recent version of DR, and I'm seeing prefab behaviour that I'm not used to. When I insert a prefab, it seems like the entire prefab is a singular entity? Even though the prefab is made out of multiple models, I can't select any of the models individually to move them. Clicking on any part of the prefab selects the entire thing.

 

Is this the new behaviour for prefabs? Is there some option to turn this off?

Prefabs are automatically grouped, when you insert them. You can simply right-click the prefab and use "Ungroup Selection" (or you can use Edit->Ungroup Selection). I believe grouping is one of the latest features for DR.

Yeah Greebo introduced this cool new feature in DR 2.2.1, its makes moving FS around much much easier. And as I have discovered, pretty much cures vert-point-drift!

This is pretty important, and should be documented on the wiki.

While I'm totally sold on having prefabs start grouped, I'm finding that this doesn't always happen. There seem to be certain prefabs, bunkbeds, for instance, that refuse to start grouped, even when they are grouped before saving. Is there any trick to making sure they start grouped?

 

edit: No, it's not that...all prefabs are loading ungrouped now. Is there a setting I unintentionally switched?

"Create group out of prefab parts" checkbox in the prefab dialogue box?
