Select Objects Floater

The Select Objects Floater enables you to quickly search for objects, hide/unhide, and freeze/unfreeze objects in a list view.

You can also browse through hidden or frozen objects without changing their state.

IMPORTANT: the Select Objects floater only displays objects on visible layers!

You can access the Select Objects floater via mouse in the EditMode Toolbar or in the Main Menu under View > Select Object(s).
