The "2" next to the scene name?

How important is the “2”(number of users) that is next to the scene? Some how it got deleted and I can’t figure out how to get it back.

what number are you refering to?

Here’s some pics. I checked a couple other versions I have installed and it doesn’t have the number, so I guess it’s something not to be concerned with. Just kinda weird it’s always been there and now it’s not.


How do you get the number there, what do you click? i cant seem to reproduce the scenario.

Yeah, I haven’t been able to figure that out. I know half my blend files show it. Here’s a youtube video that has it and looks like “3”.

If you add a render layers node in the compositor, that adds a new scene user. Each node you add in the compositor adds another. And yes it took me awhile to figure it out, LOL!


If You right click the box You get a link to a online manual…


That’s exactly what’s happening. Glad you figured that out.
