How to use collections, can I move objects that already exist into them?

I am trying to create a glossary for all of my objects/tags etc. I have many objects and relations created already, and realized that collections are perfect for creating such a function. This would also allow me to batch change relations for certain objects, and would be incredibly helpful.

Am I missing something? If this functionality doesn’t exist now, is it planned on being implemented? I know I can create sets of individual object types, and create a set of sets that show only these type of lists, but that isn’t what I’m going for.

Hello once again @objectivelyhere! You can indeed move objects that already exist into collections. You can do this by linking the objects to the collection. While this isn’t the most discrete implementation, it uses what was a previously existing functionality to accomplish it (I guess, what I’m meaning there is that it would be more discrete if there was an “add to collection” button/functionality). In order to do this, you can go to the three dots in the upper right-hand corner, hover over/click on where it says “Link to” and then select the collection that you want to place the object in. Or, you can do this in a set by right clicking on an object and linking it from there. Sadly, you can’t move multiple objects at a time from a set to a collection. However, if you already have a set that you would rather be a collection, you can go to where the object type tag is (it’s below the title and description and will say “Set”) you can click on it and then select “Turn set into collection.” This will make the set a collection with all of the objects that were in it linked to the collection. Hopefully that all helps!


Thank you!

I don’t know if I am missing something obvious, but I would have expected there to be a way to view linked objects to the grid view.
