I thought I'd make a note of plans for this page, for myself, or for anyone else who beats me to it:
As "object" similar to "symbol" has taken on a lot of new meanings in the latest version of DF, I think it makes sense to make objects a page, redirect and move the information from named objects and symbols here. Make this page about the new "objects" menu Ui O.pngO in general, including summaries of the other menu tabs, and what the word means specifically in this context (regarding a specific classification of item); and link to a new object disambiguation page.

I'm not seeing a lot of different meanings here. There's objects as used in modding, and objects as used in-game; the latter is synonymous with "item". The "objects" tab in the menu is just grouping sub-menus that relate to important items in the fortress. I don't see any point to making a stub about the menu grouping; at most it should be a section on the Menu page IMO. I think named objects would be better as a section under symbol of office. Having a separate one-line page for every menu tab seems counterproductive. —OddballJoe (talk) 18:41, 13 March 2023 (UTC)
