I have a gear object that is visible in the 3D View, but not visible in any collection within the Outliner.

  • Whenever I hide all entities inside the collection, the object is still visible.

  • Whenever I hide the collection itself, everything including the object of interest hides.

The object is in a collection somewhere, I just can't find it. Can you help me find it?

The gear is child of another object, so its name is hidden under this object's hierarchy. Select the gear, go to the outliner, right click and choose view > show active (or simply press dot on your numpad while hovering the outliner window).
