For a description of generic settings common to all tools in the Toolbox, see Working in Tool Settings Dialog Boxes.
The Object tool is used to place object type library parts into the project.
The left-hand browser area of the Object Settings dialog box is similar to those of other Library Part elements.
In Object Tool settings, you can access a wide variety of objects that are not part of a dedicated subtype. These objects are divided into three main folders: Basic Library; Visualization Objects; and Add-On Library, and several sub-folders. As you can see by the folder names, the Basic Library contains all kinds of Furnishings (Beds; Chairs; Office Equipment, etc.); Decorations (such as clocks and vases); Health/Recreation items (such as a piano, a billiard table, a TV). Additional folders contain Building Structures (such as fences and moldings); Special Constructions (such as fireplaces and shutters); Mechanical Elements (such as air conditioners and elevators); and 2D Elements (such as electric and graphic symbols.)
The Visualization folder contains Site improvements (e.g. trees) and objects depicting People and Vehicles.
