Buttons

At the bottom of the Asset Editor you can find some utility buttons:

From the Create Asset button () you can open a list of all V-Ray assets grouped into categories and select an item to add it to the scene. Using the Import Asset button () you can open a directory and select to import a .vrmat file into your Library. Vice versa, an already created asset can be saved with the Save Asset to File button (). Delete the selected asset(s) with the Delete Asset button (). You can select more than one asset by using the Ctrl or Shift buttons. Purge all unused items of selected asset categories with the Purge Unused Assets button (). 

In the right panel of the Asset Editor reside two navigation buttons:

Select Previous Asset () traces back assets that were previously selected, while Up the Assets Hierarchy () moves the selection one level up in the hierarchy.
