Operating system: Windows-10-10.0.18362-SP0 64 Bits
Graphics card: Radeon RX550/550 Series ATI Technologies Inc. 4.5.14736 Core Profile Context 20.7.2 27.20.2001.9003
Broken: version: 2.91.0 Alpha, branch: master, commit date: 2020-08-19 22:05, hash: rB50b435cbaaa0
Worked: (newest version of Blender that worked as expected)
Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
- New General template
- Delete all objects
- Enable Render Properties > Simplify
- Set Viewport > Max Subdivision to 0
- Link link-this-col from lib.blend file
Both cubes will be viewed with 0 subdivisions.
If you repeat steps, but change Max Subdivision to 2, Both cubes will be viewed with 2 subdivisions.
Changing Max Subdivision property will affect only cube in link-this-col, but not in sub-collection.
