Worked: never (new feature)

Short description of error
When linking a second object from external file, the override status of a previously linked object is cleared

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Use attached "overrideLib.blend" file for linking objects:

1- open blender
2- link collection "CollectionCube" from "overrideLib.blend"
3- create an override for armature "ArmatureCube", we can see the override is properly created for the armature object


4- link collection "CollectionSphere" from "overrideLib.blend", we get the following state where override for ArmatureCube has gone

Side notes:

  • it's unclear why when creating an override for an armature (step 3), we're getting an override for the containing collection and the objects contained in that collection
  • if we first link both collections and only then create overrides, we are getting things as expected:
