Well I want material right now. I'd love to be able to also select exactly which one. Yeah, i know I could save my file, open the other file, export the material, open back up my file, then import the file. When i type it out doesn't it seem rather long and unnecessary?

Import .bif file, this should open a dialogue.
import what?
material...which ones
lights...which ones
models...which ones?
see the pattern here?

It'd be much more friendly to do that instead of having to feel like you have to quit what you're doing to set up the other scene for exporting what you need, just to import That.

And if the dialogue defaults to selecting all, it only incurs one extra stop for normal importing of all the stuff in the bif. You would just have to hit, ok.

Love it! That's a great idea. It would be very helpful especially for materials.

This would help my workflow tremendously... I have an easier time remembering what other project I used a material or part in than the name.... often for the same client.
