I can confirm.

  3. Move the unchecked collection to the new collection.

Hi Manu, thanks for the report.

However this as it is is by design. You moved something inside a disabled collection. It is not clear what you would expect (to enabled the disabled collection?)

It is consistent enough and the rule is: "A collection is disabled if dragged inside a disabled collection" that's all there is to it.

@Dalai Felinto (dfelinto) So what's supposed to happen when you drag the newly disabled collection out of the disabled collection?
The outliner shows the collection disabled, but the objects are visible...
I think that's what the report is about :)

Oh I see it, what should happen is the objects should still be invisible even after the collection was dragged outside (since the collection actually is still disabled - saving and reopening the file shows the correct expected behaviour.

Hi Dalai and Christopher,

Yes my main concern was that when the collection is disabled, the object inside it is visible in the viewport, that is inconsistent in my mind. And there are two instances where this behavior happens.

I think it's hard to explain, but the gif shows it quite clearly.

But of course, this is no biggie :) Thanks anyway!
