2.8 - suddenly lost my 3d view orange object selection outlines in one file... can still select, but no indication of selected object. Is there some setting I can check?

  • $\begingroup$ In 2.79 it is Properties>Display>outline selected. $\endgroup$

Could be you have disabled Display Overlays..........

Or in the Overlays menu you have unchecked the Outline Selected option.

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks!! Didn't realize that that was a toggle button up there. (And the overlays menus still work, even when it's turned off.) $\endgroup$ Commented Feb 27, 2019 at 19:58
