Drop down menu to quick select backgrounds


This is probably a simple enough add-on. 


I find myself self constantly switching backgrounds depending on what I may be working on during the design process in the entertainment industry. I typically jump between a single color black, single color white, and a single color black with lit fog enabled. Occasionally I may also include a single color blue. The background choice is dependent  on what I want to see and what render mode I happen to be using. OpenGL with or without colors/textures, Hidden Line, or RenderWorks. 


Anyone else find themselves swapping backgrounds during your design process?

All the time. I guess double-clicking on the Renderworks Background in the Resource Manager works well enough, but that means changing what you see in the Resource Manager which is a bore.


Perhaps rather than being able to select just one item in the view Pane of the Resource Manager, a new method could be devised where you could check the item/s that you want to be visible. Then you could have Renderworks Backgrounds permanently visible from the Resource Manager.

Th other way I can think of is to have a new quick preferences button on the tool bar.
