So, I've been struggling with this issue for the 15-20min and I thought I would write a mini tutorial in case I forget or someone else in the community gets stuck trying to do the same thing.
How do I create another copy of an imported model if I've already deleted the first instance in the Objects Panel? Well, you don't do this:
Don't do the above, because you can't drag the FBX from the resource panel, or drag the mesh from the resource panel. Instead, you should do this:
- Unfold your imported FBX in the Resources Panel
- Find the Yellow file box icon which indicates a "Prefab"
- Click and drag the prefab into your Objects Panel.
Accompanying feature request: Please auto-instantiate any prefabs contained in a resource I drag from resources into the Objects Panel.
