External Text Data Support
Open, Confirmed, LowPublic



Sometimes it's useful to reference a text file from Blender, similar to how images are currently handled.

This means the text files data is stored on disk and managed by version control for example.


  • Text data could be external/unpacked.
  • The contents would not be saved in the Blend filer.
  • On first use, the file content would be loaded into the text editor.
