I've been looking at this video: - but not clear how the nodes are created, are they dummies or meshes created in 3ds Max and exported as FBXs?

What I'm finding really infuriating is selecting objects (imported FBXs), either to update them or move them, or in this case choose to replace nodes. If I select 'place mode' and context menu shouldn't I receive a small white circle next to objects that I have imported, when I do that I normally get only one of the objects, I can't find the other circles to select, would be nice to select meshes as easily as I in the material editor

In the attached image I want to select the blue FBX to to use it for node replacement, I am only given the option to select the another FBX import, there are only 3 separate imported FBXs

Thanks for the +1, Martin - this has also been suggested by other users in the Feedback & Ideas section of the forum (which you can't see as it's only displayed for licensed users).

It seems to be the selections are lying on top of one another, can I cycle through them?

Yes, use Arrow Key Up and Down :)

TIP: Search for "Align command" in the Keyboard Shortcuts post.

Thank you, printing that now. In some respects it's a very easy UI to get your head around, in others it feels like things are hidden, perhaps so not to clutter the screen. I generally prefer a shortcut approach to 3D but to have a few more menus, or other ways to get to the same command would be useful.
