Can't import same FBX multiple times?

Hi,

I have spend several hours on this. I know this might be a stupid question, but please help...

I want to put multiple people in the scene. So I'm trying to import people.fbx into the scene. It succeed at the first time. I grouped the meshes and skeleton and name it in name people1. But I can't import the same people.fbx again. Is there any way to import one .fbx into the scene for multiple times?

Thanks very much!

This is an easy fix. When you import an FBX file you are given some option on how you want to import the date. The default setting will just update the scene. You need to set it to ADD this will rename the components and add it to the scene.
