Normally, when I click on the menu, it brings up the full list of all materials being used in the scene. In this case, it only went to the names beginning with D and ended there. All the rest werent accessable in that list.

My humble apologies. I failed to mention in the steps to reproduce this, that you would click on the 'Select by Material' button (down arrow symbol) in Materials section, right hand control panel, as shown in the photo. I have edited the first post of this task for 'recreation' of how to see this happen.

Can you attach some screenshots to what you are describing? Is it the case that you expect the normal of the plane to be flipped instead of facing the same direction as the original plane?

As it turns out, I cannot test 3.3. Something in the new Blender 3.3 Materials system will not allow some of the materials to export properly into Micrsoft Flight Simulator (MSFS). 3.2 Alpha (latest build) is exporting quite well, but 3.3 for some reason exports the materials in a flat color, no reflections.

Bill Ortis (lionheart001) added a comment to T97826: Possible Bug, Continuous Crashing on Exports.

A friend of mine found out what it was. I thought you might be interested. He and I both noticed that N key wasnt bringing up the Tools slideout vertical window on right side in this scene (recent file saves). N key worked otherwise with new files. He investigated the Console and found that Window view 1 was malfunctioning. Perhaps oddly the files became corrupt, or the series of builds 'might' have had a issue with the tools window and that may have blocked my exporter from working, causing a crash.
We found that an earlier version of exporter worked in Blender 3.1. There, in the file, my friend did an Amend of all Containers of the scene to a new file, and Voila, it exported fine in Blender 3.2 and 3.3. :) I can now test 3.3.

Photos of the project. She is a polygon monster. But I am sure others make far more massive scenes. But this gives you an idea of the size of the scene. The exterior has far less polygons. Average map size is 4K, 3 maps per texture average on some that have PBR.

It appears that if you 'paint' the Curve (not create it, but to paint from the curve object onto the part you have made that you are painting), Blender crashes also. This is in yesterdays Blender 3.2 March 31st Build.
I got mine to paint the Curve onto the object, but after 2 seconds, it did a CTD.

As requested. I hope they show up ok. I couldnt remember the first part that had this issue, so I included several. The screenshot shows the newest issue that popped up via this report. A strip that goes around the wing, top and bottom. It appears to have 'shrapnel' where the faces look like a puzzle. This was happening last year on another Beta launch. I forget what it was linked to, but was eventually fixed. I forget what it ended up being related to was.

Bill Ortis (lionheart001) added a comment to T93143: Name Search 'Filter' in Animation Editors does not filter object names.

A slight correction on my email above. We will have 50 to 200 animations on scenes, they show up in the NLA Editor as they are animated, but in the conversion to glTF and then importing to Blender, the animations are all renamed to a generic animation, such as node235Action, etc. So looking for the animation name doesnt work. Finding it by object name is the route we need.

This gives you an idea of the complexity of the model. Sometimes the only way I can find parts is to go into Wireframe mode, then use Isolate to work on them, but I was not working in Isolate tonight when these several crashes and errors occured. It was mostly in renaming parts and setting animations, and crashes occurred in 'selecting parts' in the scene, in Wireframe mode.
