blender linking from another file doesnt seem to work

When i want to import a model from another file it doesn’t work, appending does work.
I can see it in the outliner, but when i select it, it doesnt select anything. It is also not connected to anything in the outliner.


When you link an object you can choose to place it directly in 3d space or not.

Press Shift+A and look for ‘Group Instances’ (not too sure how it’s called in 2.49). It should be there somewhere.

Yes that worked for me.
