Linked Duplicates: visual indicator?

When you create a Linked Duplicate, is there any visual indicator that the new object is Linked to the original?

In object data properties there’d be a counter on the mesh datablock. Other than that, no.

Yeesh.

Thanks for the confirmation.

There’s the GSOC project on the Outliner at the moment:

Please report any wishes there. I did suggest a italic font for linked data, so it’s more obvious.
There’s also colored Collections and some other things going on.

Nice. Simple and conspicuous and doesn’t take up any real estate. VERY nice.

I think using italics would be a great idea.
