I'm new here so I don't know if I'm making this question in the right place, but I'm having an issue with bones in Pose mode and would be so thankful if anyone could help.

I can select them without any trouble in Edit and Object mode, but whenever I move to Pose mode I can't select them anymore. I could select them on the Outliner, but that isn't very practical nor intuitive.

Also, whenever I do select the intended bone, I get no outlines, just a very faint coloring on the object. That gets really confusing when I'm using bendy bone segments, as I can't tell whether they are there or not in side and front views.

I'm on Blender 2.82.7

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the latest version, updating my drivers, but nothing has worked so far.

Sumarized:

  • I can't select individual bones in pose mode unless it's from the outliner

  • Whenever I can select the bones, I can't see their outlines

I had this exact same problem when trying to bring an armature from 2.8 into 2.79, and I found a solution that worked in that case, so maybe it will work for you as well. Try the following:

Create a new additional armature with a single bone in your project file. Then in Object mode, select your problematic armature (the one you can't select bones from in pose mode), shift-select your new single bone armature, and join the two (ctrl-j).

When I did this I was able to select all of my original bones in pose mode again.

  • $\begingroup$ Hey waruta! It doesn't seem to be working, but it got me thinking that maybe the problem was in the file itself. I appended the model and armature onto a new file and so far I can select the bones from pose mode (!!!) though it has worked briefly in the past and then stopped working. Hoping that won't happen again. Still no outlines, but this is a huge improvement! Thanks a lot for the idea and trying to help! $\endgroup$ – Galowglas Feb 15 at 15:32

I've got the same problem and realized that it was because a saved the file with armature in Pose mode. If I save in object mode, all goes prety well. Must be a bug,to be solved in 2.83.
