Common Features to Browsers
Drag and Drop
Each browser supports dragging and dropping from the browser into the viewport. This action adds items from the browser into the current scene.
Meshed Item Browsers
For browsers whose items contain a mesh, dragging and dropping into the viewport adds the item to the stage tree and to the scene as shown in the below:
While dragging, an orange reticle moves along the ground plane and gives a preview of where the item will be placed. Once dropped, a payload is added to the stage tree and the item is placed on the ground plane at the position of the mouse cursor and reticle.
If you drag an item beyond the ground plane such that the orange reticle is in the sky; the item will not be placed on the ground plane (This is not recommended).
Non-Meshed Item Browsers
For browsers whose items do not contain meshes such as materials, there can be a variety of drag and drop behaviors. Typically, dragging items from these browsers into the scene adds the item to the stage tree and applies it at the appropriate level. This is usually the scene or the prim onto which the item was dropped.
Intrinsic to each of the browsers is the ability to specify locations to look for assets of the given type.
