link buttons bug?

This is a very strange bug. I often want to movea large number of objects (30+) that I have just imported and want to move to another scene. I usually can do this by box selecting everything and pressing Ctrl-L and then linking it to another scene and deleting the objects out of the current scene. Sometimes this works, sometimes it does not.

When it dosn’t work, I box select the objects and then pressing Ctrl-L does nothing. I then have to manually select every single object :x and then press Ctrl-L and link them up as normal.

Anybody else had this problem? any way around it? I am using v2.22, but the glitch was in v1.8 as well.

I dont think its a bug. the problem is, if you box select objects, you dont get an Active object as it is called. try to box select and then manually select one object.


thanks, that makes sence as to why it would work sometimes and not others.
