I saved and closed my project, but after opening again there are only 52 actions in my Action Editor instead of the 72 I made? How is this possible?

  • $\begingroup$ Yes. Thank you. Unfortunately this is exact what happend. Have to do every animation again (aaargh) On the plus side; just learned something new. For everybody who's new to Blender (like me) this is a good explanation about why an action needs a 'fake user': youtube.com/watch?v=p27yGNIDrIU $\endgroup$ – ngerbens Dec 3 '19 at 18:33
  • $\begingroup$ PS This is such a weird 'work around' in even a 2.8 version. Why isn't this automated? $\endgroup$ – ngerbens Dec 3 '19 at 18:48
  • $\begingroup$ I believe it's an 'in-progress' task to get rid of fake users altogether: developer.blender.org/T61209 $\endgroup$ – Ray Mairlot Dec 3 '19 at 19:47
  • $\begingroup$ Great! Good to read it's a common pain for (new users), but also good to know the reason why it was implemented in the first place. Hope they will fix it: Constantly checking a box called 'fake user' doesn't feel very trustworthy if you ask me. Even though the icon is a shield. Thanks for helping me out on this subject btw., much appreciated. $\endgroup$ – ngerbens Dec 4 '19 at 17:28
