Event Timeline

Bastien Montagne (mont29) lowered the priority of this task from 90 to 50.

Confirmed, looks like it’s missing some kind of update when selecting an existing GP datablock in scene (need to e.g. click on Draw gp tool to show existing strokes).

Note that this is not specific to appending/linking, just creating new empty scene and assigning GPdata to it shows same behavior.

@Antonio Vazquez (antoniov) mind having a look? thanks.

Thanks Bastien and Antonio !! :)

All the best :)
