Append full character prefab

Blender append functionality only allow to merge mesh or armature or animations , but not all at same time, because you can only select one to merge.

How do you append a complete character with it’s mesh, armature and actions animations, all at same time to a scene as a new character instance ?

You must use append -> Object -> yourObject

This will add the character with it’s armature and animations as a new object to the existing scene.

Perhaps this should be a tutorial in the manual showing how to create and import prefabs.
