shift H does not hide all at empty selection

Blender 2.79 Release

Short description of error
pressing H correctly hides the selected vertices/objects. it does not hide anything
if nothing is selected, and it hides everything if everything is selected.

shift H should behave the other way around, but it does not hide anything if
nothing is selected. i would expect it to hide everything, and it does
that in blender 2.79.
partial selections work fine, though.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  1. start blender, press alt-A to deselect all, press shift-H

same in edit mode, if no vertex is selected, shift-H does not hide anything.
however, in pose mode shift-H works fine, as it does in the video
sequenzer (shift-H mutes all if nothing is selected).

aside from those, i did not try out other modes/views.


Event Timeline

Sebastian Parborg (zeddb) triaged this task as Confirmed, Medium priority.

@William Reynish (billreynish) I think consistent should be pursuit here. Super low priority bug, but which way do you think we should go? Any idea why things changed since 2.7x?

If Shift-H means "hide all unselected", then if nothing is selected, it follows that it should hide everything
