Have you looked at the + button at the bottom
Nope, I didn't scroll down for some reason I was expecting somewhere....just right in front of me
Now that you mention it, I have just noticed the plus sign is below the items everywhere.
I don't really like that as the list of items can be very long so that's definitely not the right place in my opinion as you need to keep scrolling all the time you want to add a new item.
How about to place a plus sign simply on the top/title bar everywhere? It always on top and always visible.
Or, you could make it so if the plus sign is outside the screen then make it gently sit/float on the bottom of the screen at all times. Of course it would overlap items, but it could be fixed by let the user scroll the items a bit further if it in the way.
But then it would be a problem if there is multiple different categories outside the screen like Scenes and External layouts...
Personally, I would go with the top/title bars really.
The goal is to avoid having to use the resource manager at all.
I'm not too sure how do I feel about that. Even though it a bit slower and require more steps, I do like to keep and manage all my resources in a single place so I don't need to browse a bunch of folders on my PC all the time I want to use an image.
I can just drop all my images in to the resources and whenever I want to use one, I can just pick one from the resource manager regardless how the images are organised and stored on my PC filesystem and inside the project folder for that matter.
