This is an old rfe, that would be *really* handy if SESI ever gets around to it.

Subject: Re: [Sidefx-houdini-list] Extract question

the "Extract" creates a new object inside the Digital Asset rather than 
outside.?

that is because this hda is unlocked

can't help with the rest as I always manually make an object merge then 
nav to the stuff I want

Picking and then doing a Copy and Paste to create multiple new objects doesn't work because (in my case) the path to the Vertex Cache CHOP used in the Digital Asset gets lost.

I guess that could be done with some scripting, but am I overlooking something that already exists?
