In this scene I have banners on the pillars, it is also selected in the outliner at the moment, but I cant seem to find the banners? I don't know if I hid the object, or what but I cant find them at all anymore? I have tried unhiding everything, but nothing, this really confuses me as it is in the outliner and the texture for it is there.

    $\begingroup$ You can see an orange dot on the 5th layer. This shows the object is on this layer. The 5th layer is not currently selected to be visible, only layers 1 and 11 are. $\endgroup$ – Ray Mairlot Sep 5 '18 at 15:02

    $\begingroup$ Reduce your file to the simplest example that still has the issue. $\endgroup$ – Ray Mairlot Sep 5 '18 at 15:14

As I said in my comment, the pillar object is on layer 5 and you only have layers 1 and 11 set to be visible. Showing layer 5 reveals the 'banner' (shown as pink due to missing textures):

enter image description here

I can see it is on layer 5 because the orange dot appears on the 5th square of the layers UI, indicating the layer the selected object is on:

You need to press Shift while selecting the 5th layer to make it visible along with the other layers. The squares indicating the layers go a dark colour when they are selected (or in the case of your Blender theme, blue), which is how I could tell only layers 1 and 11 are selected in your original screenshot.

For more information on viewing and managing layers, see the Layers section of the Blender Manual.

  • $\begingroup$ I feel so stupid now, I checked through all my layers individually and i didn't spot them at all, I apologize for this, I do see them now.... Thank you so much for assisting me, and again, i do apologize for my silly mistake. $\endgroup$ – Meizner Sep 5 '18 at 15:35
