Short description of error
Using Ctrl-H to hide a collection hides the wrong collection.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  1. Create new blender file
  2. Create new collection 'Collection 2'
  3. Move the default cube object into Collection 2 using the Outliner (drag and drop the cube from Collection to Collection 2 in Outliner View-layer)
  4. Go to the 3D editor, and make sure the cube is selected, and apply Ctrl-H
  5. In the pop-up 'Hide Collection' menu, choose to hide the first entry 'Collection'

What happens instead is 'Collection 2' gets hidden.

As a result, and seeing that 'cube' is indeed in 'Collection 2', it disappears off the 3D-editor.

The Outliner shows the hierarchy 'Collection 2' as hidden, and instead it should be 'Collection'.

this can be closed, there's a pop-up description I didn't notice which explains it more clearly.

  • can the pop-up instead have a better heading? Hide Collection imho could be better worded, such as 'Show One Collection'

Not sure about changing that, but if we do change we could do as part of D5118 in 2.81.
