# Why can't I parent objects in my .blend?

Here's a weird one - I can't seem to create a parent child relationship in my current Blender project.

For example, I want to make 'Cube' a child of the 'ModuleParent' empty. If you take a look at this linked .blend, can you create that relationship?

If so, how? (Have tried ctrl-p, have tried dragging and dropping in Outliner (with shift and ctrl), nowt seems to work)

• All of those work fine for me (Blender 2.80 (sub 43) a1ae04d15a9f). Have you tried setting Parent in Properties > Object > Relations with Cube selected? – gandalf3 Feb 2 '19 at 3:51
• Yup, so I looked that section up in my objects and - there we are, clear as day, the objects are parented correctly. As it happens, this problem stems from my misunderstanding vis a vis Scenes and View Layer views in the Outliner. Bigger explanation below, hopefully... – Reverend Speed Feb 2 '19 at 19:05
