Scene can be created via creating corresponding resource. Read more about resource creation. When scene is being created, one can pick basic template, so the initial scene would be prefilled with some objects, like skybox or several light sources.
Scene editor has several instruments for objects editing. There is "Scene editor" tab in the ribbon, where additional instruments can be found. This tab will be described below. One also can edit objects through Objects Window or Settings Window. These windows can be used to edit any other kind of resources as well.
The easiest way to create an object is through Resources Window. Just pick desired object and drag it to the scene.
Another way to create an object is to use context menu.
Once an object is selected, it can be moved with Transfom Tool instrument. With this tool one can translate, rotate, or scale the objects.
Transform tool regime can be switched by clicking on the corresponding icon in the ribbon, or via pressing R, T, Y, U keys.
