Find and replace materials

Find and replace materials

It would be useful to be able to have a tool to find and replace materials.

 

Example if I've got windows in two different colours. White and Black. I could run a search that would identify where all the white material was used and replace this with the black material. Or perhaps I want to change all my Canary Yellow Windows from yellow to black - rather than rename and adjust the look of the yellow material to a black material - it would be easier to create the new black material and then swap all instances of yellow for the new black material. Leaving the yellow material intact should I chose to use it again later.

 

This would be most useful when working on a project where the model is split into numerous linked files.

Or another useful tool would be the ability to merge materials. So you could merge an unwanted material into the new preferred material.
