Hi Peter,

Sorry Regina

This info does not make sense to me. I am not a programmer, nor have I ever been involved in 
creating software. I am at the other end — a user.
I need a definition that I can understand and use to create an explanation for a user.

Sorry, I will try it again.
You can think of a scene as a little three-dimensional world. This world can contain the object types: cube, sphere, extrusion-object, rotation-object. LibreOffice makes a kind of "photo" from this "world" and inserts it into the draw page.

The object types cube, sphere, extrusion-object, rotation-object do not exist outside a scene.

Open the sub-toolbar "3D-Objects" from the drawing toolbar and draw a cube. Now look at the status-bar. You see the text "3D scene selected". Now press F3. You should see the text "3D cube selected" in the status-bar.

A scene acts similar to a group. Therefore it has the same short-cuts as a group. With key F3 you enter the scene. You are now inside the little three-dimensional world. With Ctrl+F3 you leave the scene.

If you want to experiment with a more complex scene, you can use the logo of LibreOffice 6. You can get the Draw file containing the original object from

Perhaps it is easier, if you play around with such objects, and if get something unexpected for you, then ask about that situation.

One problem with 3D-objects is surely, that similar shapes do neither exist in PowerPoint nor as SVG-image.

Kind regards
