OK, I love the idea of the new collections feature over the old layer method, but I"m running into an issue that is quite frustrating.
first I’m working with Blender 2.8 Beta from 12/16.
I have opened a file i started in 2.79 trying to get it converted over to 2.8. It has A LOT of separate objects that I want to get into appropriate collections.
I select several objects and place it in a collection - then I deselect the object and hide it vial the collection.
Then I select other objects and do the same and continue doing this for multiple collections and sub-collections.
The frustrations is that I think I am done and turn on the visibility of a collection only to find that some of the objects have moved to a different collection. I try to fix it and then find that other collections have object moved from that one. I don’t get it!
I do get that Blender 2.8 is still in development. is this a known issue, or am I doing something wrong?
In case anyone who matters is reading this thread, there are a couple behaviors that I feel would be better - just my opinion though.
1 - Currently if a collection’s visibility is turned off, placing a new object into that collection remain visible. I would think that if I turn the visibility of a collection off that means I want it off and any new objects I anticipate any object I place in that collection would be hidden as well.
2 - To place an object in a collection you first need to select it (obviously ). I would think that placing it in a new collection would deselect that/those objects.
