Just swapped my desktop about too.

The error I get when trying to drag the box from the shelf at obj level is
"The attempted operation failed. Invalid node type name"

if I make a geo and go into it I get no error when dragging, but there
agtain you dont really want a box at obj level.

dont know if that helped
