Learn to name your objects as you make them, and put them into display layers so you can easily hide/unhide stuff.If you find yourself doing the same action repeatedly, consider making a hotkey for it.Expand the menu that's on the right to the left, so it takes up two collumns, then you won't have to keep dragging up and down the menus. Better yet, get a 2nd monitor and throw that bitch on to the 2nd monitor, along with any other editors you use, like the material or script editor.
