Inspector not displaying list of Objects of different types & throws error

Editor - Other



Priority: 2Necessary for shipping a final release


Severity: 2No workaround

When selecting multiple objects of different types in the Project window, the Inspector no longer displays a list of Objects, per type.

-in the Project window, create a new folder and a new material
-select both Objects and look at the Inspector

bug: only "New Folder" object is inspected
... and error is thrown in the console...
