In Blender 2.8 we introduced Collections to manage our objects and scenes. This places more emphasis and reliance on the Outliner, and so now is a good time to make additional improvements to how it works.
I’ve identified a few areas that have potential to make the Outliner more delightful to use.
@dfelinto has a patch here to simplify the visibility toggles here: D4011
This also adds proper support for hiding collections without overriding the hidden states of the contents.
- T57855 Ability to drag multiple items at once to parent
- T57746 Dragging across the disclosure triangles moves item rather than opening/closing
