# 2.8 Why are collections grayed out? How can I open them?

I've bought Cup models from Internet.

When opening .blend file I get Blender's Interface changed. To avoid this I've unchecked "Load UI" on opening the file.

But now I cannot see the objects of the project (I can see and render them when opening the file and leaving "Load UI" checked).

"Collection 1" on the "Objects Panel" (Don't know if it is it's name). is grayed out.

Blender 2.8:

• Can you enable the "eye" icon in the outliner? i.stack.imgur.com/2MTtT.gif – cegaton Mar 23 at 19:30
• Nope. I can't do that – user3352567 Mar 23 at 19:33
• Are you using the latest version of 2.8? – cegaton Mar 23 at 19:34
• Yes. The one relased on the 21st. I'll put an image of the version on my question. – user3352567 Mar 23 at 19:40
• And there is YET another (apart from "Exclude from View Layer" and the simple "Hide") hiding option which is... hiding... under Right Click - Visibility - Disable in Viewports. That greys the thing out, too. It also seems to default to this when an older .blend was opened in 2.8 that contained multiple things in not-visible (at the time of saving) layers. – BuzzKirill Jul 4 at 9:03

• For some reason this feature was removed in one of the release candidates, and then added again (but renamed) in the final 2.8 release. The latest version has it, but it's called Enable in Viewports/Disable in Viewports in the same sub-menu. However, the ALT+E shortcut doesn't work anymore. EDIT: it's not in the View Layer sub-menu anymore, it's in the Visibility sub-menu. – AlexRamallo Jul 30 at 21:37
