Short description of error
I saved a blend file named particles, as you can see in the image above it contains a collection called Particles that contains a cylinder, a cube and a sphere. i added a particles system to the plane and under the Render tab i added the collection "Particles" to be rendered.
The problem comes when i open another project and append the particle settings from the saved file:
As you can see from the picture it appended the cylinder, the cube, the sphere, but it appended also the plane with the particles, not only that, but also blender appended all into the main Collection of the scene.
I think it would make more sense to append the collection Particles with the 3 objects as a separate collection instead of appending all into the main collection that will cause errors (for example the plane having the name "Particles" as a collection in the render tab but in the scene there is no such collection because it wasn't appended)
