    Hello. I have a question about problem i do not seem to be able solve myself. It is probably a simple problem to solve. Sinds a few weeks ago i lost all my materials in my material manager as you can see. What ever file i’ll open, its the same problem. On the left in de manager i see that strange icon instead of the + sign. What did I do and how to resolve this ? Is there anyone who can help me here ? Thanks in advance

    it looks like an icon associated with uv/painting/bodypaint. Have you tried resetting your workspace?

    Hi Henny,

    You should find your materials and catalogs that you may have created in the Content Browser. If they are not there, go to Edit, then Preferences, then click on Open Preferences Folder. In the pop-up window, go to Library, then Browser, as in the screenshots below, and make sure that the lib4d files of your materials catalogs are there. If everything is in place, try changing the layout.

    As for the problem of strange icons, this problem sometimes occurs with some people who work on Mac. Below is a link to a previous topic in the forum about a similar problem under macOS Sonoma.

    I hope this is useful to you.
