Get material from selected object button
I would like to get a one click button or right click menu to get the selected object's material in the selected slot in compact mode. we can't use picker for an object that is hidden behind another one.
I would like to have the same button in the slate editor. Though it's easier in there to just drag the hihlighted material from the scene material section.

I use "Get Material from Selected" constantly, and I changed my max 2012 Material Editor Browser back to the old max style. The new one buries this option, and I absolutely despise this UI change. Don't force me to "filter" my browsing until I can find what I want; give me back the option right up front to select a material from my scene based on criteria that I can pick instantly.
the 'get material' button used to have 'from selected' as an option. I think it was removed in max 2011 or 2010. It would be helpful to have that back. In the meantime I will try out Neil's script.
Ok thanks Neil. I already have your scripts installed. But I don't know all of them. Thank you so much for sharing.
Just so you know, I have a script that does this...
Although certainly having it built in would be helpful.
