enter image description here

I did 'unlink' and 'remove' respectively, but really don't know how the two are different. What's the difference between them?

  • $\begingroup$ edit: yes my bad, it looks like it works like an unlink, I guess some things need to be harmonized between 3D view commands and Outliner commands $\endgroup$

If your object is linked to more than one collection Object > Collection > Remove From Collection will give you the option to remove it from all collections or from one specific collection. Unlink in the outliner on the other hand only removes the selected object link from the collection it is in. If the object is linked to other collections, these will remain.

  • $\begingroup$ @나미손 Yes, if your selection in the outliner is also an object, they both result in a call to BKE_collection_object_remove in Blender's code. $\endgroup$ Commented Aug 7, 2019 at 18:07
