the GUI needs urgently to be redesigned, as we can only see the actual material name by clicking the mouse over the material previews... with all those presets it is becoming a no go. see screenshot.

Marcus, 

 

Perhaps a "list" type view would work better?  (or the option to view the materials by list, at least?)

yes, by list and with an option to resize the icon previews grid by the user.

What if we just got rid of this cumbersome 'Materials Libraries' in this palette all together?  I believe it is a waste of valuable screen space and not necessary to have open everytime a Material is edited.

 

I think clicking a button to temporarily open another Material Library window would be much better.  This is how THEA handles it...

Hmm, i think FormZ could benefit from a good asset browser like the one Modo has.

It's imperative to be able to see the full material name, without having to click on each material preview.
