Cannot make object single user after Duplicate Scene with Link Object Data
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

System Information
Operating system: elementaryOS 0.4.1
Graphics card: GTX 1080
Broken: 2.80, 964b5f02caf8
Worked: 2.79

Short description of error
When duplicating a scene by clicking "Link Object Data" it's not just the object data that becomes linked, but the object itself is somehow linked. There is apparently no way to make these objects single user objects anymore, not even by clicking on the little "2" next to object name in properties panel.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Open attached file and try to make the cube a single user.
Or open default blender, click on duplicate scene with Link Object Data and look at user and behavior of "Cube".

Just removed 'link object data' option (rB0554b2e177e95)… ;) So guess that's no more relevant?

What?? This was a super useful feature which I used all the time. Being able to duplicate a scene, linking object data but still being able to move objects independently around was great.
Okay, but now that it is gone, how can I make an object local and unique to the current file?

Bastien Montagne (mont29) raised the priority of this task from Needs Information from User to Confirmed, Medium.

Eeeeh… yes there is indeed an issue here, should work based on viewlayer…
