  • Configurable Data Types: Ability to configure which data types are automatically assigned a fake user.
  • Exclusion Options: Exclude specific datablocks by using specific names, suffixes, or prefixes.
  • Non-Automatic Behavior Option: Deactivate the “on-save assignation” and manually assign fake users through a button in the File Menu.
