Blender 2.80.48 Video Editing Adding Scenes that are selected in the outliner bug/behavior?

Short description of error
Adding scenes in video editing tab seems to be connected to the scene that is selected in the outliner, in a way that it does not allow that scene to be added (does not appear in the Add pop out). The way around this that works for me, is to create a dummy scene in the outliner and select it, so that the other non-selected scenes can be put into the video editing tracks.

In the help doc:

https://docs.blender.org/manual/nb/dev/editors/vse/sequencer/strips/scene.html

it is mentioned that adding the scene that is selected is supported, even though it is not recommended to avoid confusion.

Thanks for pointing this out. Adding scene to itself is not supported for quite a while.

The information in the docs is outdated.

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

@Richard Antalik (ISS) I guess I can mark this as confirmed then?

Task is more or less invalid, but docs should be fixed so I guess..
I can not make those changes (I think)

@Aaron Carlisle (Blendify) may be for you?

@Richard Antalik (ISS), you actually have commit rights to the documentation repository (username and password and are the same as for logging into this site).

Looks like SVN, so I will have to setup that.

Yes, there's some instructions here:
https://docs.blender.org/manual/en/dev/about/contribute/index.html

I can also commit this fix quick, just saying you can if you want to.

Thanks, I was busy this week haven't got even to respond to you.
