I have created a new scene using linked copies.
Now I need to make a few of the object single-user so there is a separate object in the original and in the new scene.
Back in 2.79 there was a button for that:
Blender 2.8 seems to lack that button. How do I make a single-user copy of the object?
Do not confuse the object with the object data (like mesh or curve). The mesh panel does have the button, but I need to make the object single user and that panel is missing the necessary button.
Based on some of the comments I have concluded I am going to have to get horribly detailed, because what other people are experiencing does not match how my stock blender 2.80 behaves:
How do I change my workflow to accomplish the mission of having two scenes with some objects in common , and other objects have single-user versions of objects from the original scene?
