Drag and drop materials

Hello wise owls!

Watching Houdini + Octane tutorials, they seem to be able to drag and drop their materials onto geometry and it updates, however I have to add a material node under the file in order to see any changes.

What am I missing? Any help would be greatly appreciated, as this current workflow is very tedious.

Thanks in advance,

The problem can be that the object already has the "shop_materialpath" primitive attribute pointing to a wrong material. To use the OBJ level material, you must be sure that the object doesn't have this primitive attribute created at the SOP level. If you have it, you can use the Delete SOP to delete it.
