I have imported a large model with lots (hundreds?) of objects. The hierarchy of the model is not very logical so I am trying to fix this.
Therefore I would like to select objects in the viewport to group them. But when I click (trying both the Tweak and Select box tools), nothing gets selected. When I select an object in the Outliner, it selects (and outlines) perfectly fine. Selecting everything through the outliner is not an option as the object names are the same: group_nnnn (nnnn being a number)
I have tried switching from 'Layout' to 'Modelling' as I read somewhere here, but switching leaves me with an empty viewport.
What am I missing here?
Edit: added a screenshot
With selectables on and empties unchecked:
