Clarisse has been designed to offer web/file browser like navigation. It can be pretty awkward as it’s pretty unusual for most 3D DCC applications. This is why there’s a large tool bar right under the application menu which displays the current selection pretty much like how a web browser displays the URL of the site you’re currently browsing.
This navigation toolbar and generally speaking Clarisse’s selection handling are some of the things most users seem to miss surprisingly.
Enough talking, I prepared a 2 mins video covering everything there is to know about Clarisse selection, selection navigation and an overview on how to link multiple widgets together using selection slots.
