Short description of error
Sometimes in a scene there's so many objects that you want to have two outliners open in order to select specific files. However, selecting an object in one outliner and CTRL+selecting another object in another outliner is not possible.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  • Have two objects in a scene
  • Have two outliners open
  • Select one object in an outliner
  • CTRL-Select the other object in the other outliner
  • The selection of the first object is lost, which is undesired



Event Timeline

Perhaps worth mentioning that in 2.80 and before, extending selection via different outliners does work (though it's shift+click there, of course).
