Broken: 2.81, 2.82
In outliner, "Select" and "Select Objects" menu items select objects in 3D viewport, but not in the outliner. This makes these options unusable for selecting (disjoint) groups of objects.
- In the default scene, make a new collection and move one of the objects into it, let's say the Camera.
- In the Outliner, right click "Collection" and choose "Select Objects". Cube and light become selected, but there's no outliner selection background on them.
- In the Outliner, Ctrl-click the Camera.
Expected behavior: all three objects selected, Camera active.
Current behavior: Cube and Light are deselected, Camera is selected and active.
Furthermore, while an object is active in the outliner, right-clicking anything else in the Outliner brings up the Object context menu. So, for example, on cannot right-click a collection and see the "Select Objects" option.
