I have just returned to the 3D viz side of work after an 8 year absence, and am faced with 3dS Max 2012. There have been some changes, and in particular to the material browser. My issue is that this loads far too slow for some of the projects we have. It took half an hour for my latest drawing to open which I attribute to this issue, only because if I try and load a material library into an already open model I wait the same time.
I have noticed that when opening a material library from within a model this seems to default to showing Icons and Text.
Is there any way I can set this to default to text?
