Short description of error
Object hidden in Collection is visible in Collection-Instance

Seems to be same problem as reported in T61287. From what I read in T61287 it says problem resolved and closed. Perhaps I misunderstand.

Original on left. Instance on right.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error



Event Timeline

To hide object in collection instance you should click on hide icon with holding Alt. Hide icon will change from eye to monitor:

So i think, it's not a bug, this is how hiding system works at the moment.

Brecht Van Lommel (brecht) claimed this task.

I tried your suggestion: alt-click on the (eye) hide-icon -- this does not work. It does nothing in fact.

Standard Linux (Debian) keymapping at OS level. I have not modified the keymapping inside blender UserPrefs. I tried all permutations of LMB, RMB and left-alt, right-alt. No luck, no effect, does not toggle visibility or icon-type.

Now running hash 90afe3918110 .

I have UserPrefs set to select with RMB.
I switched back to LMB, to check but that didn't change anything.

I looked in UserPrefs keymapping >> Outliner: but didn't see where it controlled this behaviour.

I tried more key permutations,
ctrl-alt-LMB :does what you describe (changes icon to 'monitor' and hides sub-object in both original and in instance. Thanks!

Along the way I discovered that
ctrl-LMB :hides EVERYTHING EXCEPT what you clicked on.
There seems no way to undo this surprising step, beyond clicking on EVERYTHING back to visible (unfortunately I was in a much more complex file when I discovered this, so that was quite the click-visible fest). Is there a quick way to undo this ctrl-LMB HIDE-EVERYTHING-EXCEPT move?
This seems not to respect the guidance of "least-surprisal".

On some Linux distributions, Alt + click is used by the window manager to move windows. In that case the shortcut can't be used. To fix that, you should change window compositor key from Alt to none or Super

Example in Gnome Shell:
