How do I replace items globally?

I have many trees that I've been told are the wrong variety. How can I globally substitute a different tree without having to replace all my trees? I see no apparent way top do this!

Thanks for any help-Gary

Hi gangle

Lumion v3 introduced a new feature that allows Lumion Library Objects and Imported Objects to be replaced.

You can replace a single object or multiple objects at once.  Here's how for multiple

1. from the Lumion Library, select the object - tree or other that you want as the new object
2. select the objects that you want to replace (Shift mouse drag or use Context Menu --> Selection --> Select All Similar)
3. Context Menu Selection:  click on an object icon to bring up Context menu again --> Selection --> Library
4. replace object:   --> Replace With Library Selection.

Note: there is no undo for this feature.

Hi gangle,

This is just a routine check as you do not seem to have any Lumion license(s) attached to your forum account. 

Alternatively you might be using a Free version of Lumion.

If you have a license or are working for a company with a valid license, I'd be grateful if you could forward the license or the company name/email address to info [at], so we can verify that everything is in order.

Thanks in advance.

TIP: If you are working for a company, you can use 1 license key for multiple staff members, as a way to get full access to the forum.  You get access to the Commercial Users Forum section, and we aim to provide faster support to users in that section.

All that you need to do is to ask the person who manages the license keys at your company to go to your Account settings and enter one of the license keys. You will then have full access to the forum.

NOTE also for information:  there is a Free version available for people to use and trial.  It's not time limited and provides all key features and functionality but with a reduced Library.  People are welcome to use this version to trial and learn how to use Lumion, provided our legal requirements are met.  All Free versions also have a watermark.
