Short description of error
Adding a collection asset in Append (Reuse Data) mode, after linking the same collection, makes every instance of that asset disappear. Only way to fix it for the current Blend file is to switch to Blender File mode in Outliner, find linked collection and delete it manually from there.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  • Add a collection to the scene in Link mode with instancing enabled
  • Add same collection in Append (Reuse Data) mode
