Why can't I add materials to the content browser?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I'm running R21.  I went to make a new folder in the content browser so I could add my own textures. However, I found I did not have permission to do so. My other version allowed me to add materials, so I'm unsure what the issue is.  What could be stopping me from having permission to edit or make changes to the content browser?

It's probably set to "read only".

Rightclick the folder and select "read only". Depending on the size of the folder this could take a moment but after that you should be able to make changes.

Did you create new folder on the top of hierarchy or somewhere inside of default libraries hierarchy?

It´s because you´re not allowed to make changes in default libraries (which are placed inside installation folder). All users libraries are created inside "preference" library/browser folder. All users libraries could be created/updated without any restrictions if it´s your case...
