I have been using blender 2.79 and recently downloaded 2.8. I was modelling a scene in blender 2.79 and when opening it up in 2.8 most of my objects are greyed out. Everything is enabled in the viewport, nothing is hidden. One object is still visible but the rest are not.

I have tried using the filters, changing the visibility in the collections to restore visibility.

The weird thing is, blender is saying that they aren't hidden but can't be seen in the renderer or in the viewport.

Can anyone help?

Thank you.

I have already looked for answers before posting and no previous posts are able to help, sadly. $\endgroup$ – A.cullcarr Aug 4 '19 at 9:06

The objects are disabled in "Viewports". You need to enable the Restriction Toggle and then enable them there to make them visible.

Just to add to Jackdaw's answer:

The view settings are also available from the Object Properties tab under 'Visibility'.

But, it seems if you want to toggle these settings for multiple objects, that can only be done in the Outliner.
