Parented object icons in Outliner are not selectable in latest 2.8 as in 2.79?

I mean when hierarchy view is collapsed in outliner.
Only can select the parent even clicking over a childs object icons.

I cannot reproduce this issue.

Please provide exact steps to reproduce, and optionally a demo blend file.

It is not a certain file.
I can not select child objects in the Outliner without expanding the hierarchy.

In 2.79 i click over the icon to the right of a parent object and it gets selected without opening all the outliner relationship tree.

I think you should bring back this capability somehow.
It is very usefull in big/complex scenes.
Could it be possible to have an objects selection list while pressing the mouse over a childs icon?
Not spreading the hierarchy without losing the option to select childs is very useful.

This doesn't fit with the way we show children objects, so we cannot do it this way. Archiving for now.
