Need to copy objects from one layer to another in the same scene, but sometimes also one scene to another.
I use Ctrl + C and Ctrl + V for this a lot, but problem is now there are 5 copies of around 20 materials.
EG: Material1, Material1.001, Material1.002, Material1.003, Material1.004, etc
Another post said to duplicate the objects instead, then move them to another layer. But couldn't see how to do that for scenes, and prefer using Ctrl + C/V. Is there a setting or way to stop copying the materials but still copy objects using that method.
Don't want to link the objects either. Want unique, standalone copies of the objects. But only one instance of each material.
