Is there a way to change the "active" collection? I can check witch collection is currently selected with this code:
But I can't change it using this property because is read-only. Is there a way to do that?
After some research I found out part of the solution. I can use this code to get and set the active layer collection.
# Get the current active layer collection and store it in x
x = bpy.context.view_layer.active_layer_collection
# Select another layer collection from the outliner,
# then use this code to restore x as active
bpy.context.view_layer.active_layer_collection = x
the new problem is that x is not a Collection object, is a LayerCollection and we can't pass any collection created with the method:
myColl = bpy.data.collections.new('My Collection')
So the refined question is: How to obtain a LayerCollection for a particular Collection to change the Active Collection?
