Resources Window is intended for work with the project resources. Contains a list of available objects to create, the project resource tree.
The window is two-panel (tree, list). The toolbar is on the top. The window has many options for customization. Using the Resources Window you can make such actions as creating, copying, deleting, transferring, viewing properties, files and folders preview.
The data in the window is represented by four root groups. The first three groups are types, the fourth Assets is the project resources.

You can make two actions with types (objects to create). The first is to create a resource of the selected type. To do it select the type, open the context menu and select the item 'New resource of this type'. New Resource window will open.
The second action is creation a new object using Drag & Drop. For example, an object can be dropped into the scene (move the object in the work area of the scene).
The Assets folder represents project resources. The resource window has great opportunities for work with files. Actually the window functionality includes a full-fledged file manager. It can create, delete, rename files and folders.
