Sam Brubaker (rocketman) added a comment to T69155: Cant Get Render Passes Out of Blender 2.8 Anymore? .

Glad I could help! To answer your other question, the node setup you have is definitely not the best way to save render passes (although I've been forced to do the same thing in order to work with legacy pipelines). Look into the Multilayer OpenEXR format. Choosing this option in your main output settings will cause all enabled render passes to automatically save to a single .EXR file without any node work or technically incorrect color transforms.

The appended node groups in your example file are quite simple so those probably aren't the cause of your issue.

This looks like the expected behavior to me. "Indirect Only" means that the collection casts shadows and reflections, but does not appear directly. If the object appeared as a holdout, that would be direct shading.

Sam Brubaker (rocketman) added a comment to T66314: Issues with the add Workspace /+\ menu.

I don't see any reason why workspaces in the "add workspace" menu should be disabled or inactive at all. The "disabling" only takes effect if a workspace of the same name already exists, but that is pointless. It is rather like disabling "Add Cube" if an object named "Cube" already exists in the scene.

Unicode characters do not need to be individually implemented in Blender in order to show up in fonts that support them. That would be an insane amount of work! Blender just passes the unicode data to the font, and either the font has that character or it doesn't. Bfont, in this case, doesn't have a lot of characters that other fonts do.

In you file you have a maximum target weight of 0.0
If you set this value to 0.0, as soon you paint any vertex, the value will be set to 0,0, and this is how is deigned. If you wants to have a maximum value of 0 in the vertex and you manipulate the vertex, the program check your current value and clamp it to the valid range, in this case from 0 to 0, so it's 0.

Suggestion: Manipulators on Camera and Lamp objects should be accessed by entering Edit Mode for these objects.
For instance, one could select a Spot Lamp and press Tab to enter Edit Mode, which would expose the manipulators for size, angle, and falloff. These would be hidden in object mode so as to avoid clutter. Entering edit mode on a Camera could expose manipulators for viewing angle, shift, focus distance and clipping.
