Blender standard Outliner is not showing to much properties (left tree table).

The option to view the Datafile is not optimize for quick view of the basic information.


Its possible to show the Location, Dimensions, Scale, Rotation and Custom properties of objects in table-view (right tree table made in Photoshop)?

If its possible, can you tell me witch Blender Outliner system file I have to rewrite (I am a Noobie at Python).

Thanks a lot.

The data shown in the outliner is filtered within blender's C code, the python code used to display it is rather minimal - view it here. Altering the display of the outliner will need to be implemented with C not python. code is here if you want to look.

The data you want displayed is available in the properties sidebar on the right of the 3dView (press N to show/hide it)

You can write an addon to show a customised version of this data, a sample to get you started --

bl_info = {
    'name': 'sample info display',
    'author': 'Shane',
    'version': (1, 0),
    "blender": (2, 6, 9),
    'location': 'View3D > Properties panel > Sample Info',
    'description': 'A simple panel for the 3D view properties panel to show stuff',
    "wiki_url": ""\
    "tracker_url": ""\
    'category': 'Properties'}

This script simply places some properties into the 3D view Properies panel.

import bpy

class SamplePanel(bpy.types.Panel):
    bl_space_type = "VIEW_3D"
    bl_region_type = "UI"
    bl_label = "Sample data"

    def draw(self, context):
        layout = self.layout
        obj = context.object

        row = layout.row()
        row.column().prop(obj, "location")
        row = layout.row()
        if obj.rotation_mode == 'QUATERNION':
            row.column().prop(obj, "rotation_quaternion", text="Rotation")
        elif obj.rotation_mode == 'AXIS_ANGLE':
            row.column().prop(obj, "rotation_axis_angle", text="Rotation")
            row.column().prop(obj, "rotation_euler", text="Rotation")
