I disabled the view of all layers, but a certain object is still visible. Why? How can i hide this object or how can i assign it to a layer?

Thx enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ It could be assigned to more than one layer, in the 3D_view press M and select the layer, hiding the parent will not effect the children (not in real life : ) $\endgroup$ – Chebhou Mar 17 '15 at 19:03
  • $\begingroup$ Ok what i mean are the different scene layers, not the layer in the 3D view. In the 3D view everything is on layer 1. $\endgroup$ – Internet Mar 17 '15 at 19:07

    $\begingroup$ the same for scene layers : an object can be on multiple scene layers $\endgroup$ – Chebhou Mar 17 '15 at 19:16
  • $\begingroup$ You can toggle visibility of any objects by H / Alt+H. This won't affect on which layer it was assigned, but rather than only visibility. $\endgroup$ – Mr Zak Mar 17 '15 at 19:35
  • $\begingroup$ @MrZak Thanks, selecting the objects and pressing H made them hide. $\endgroup$ – Internet Mar 17 '15 at 21:07

This is because you aren't seeing all your objects in the outliner.

Your object is parented to another object. You'll noticed that when the object in question is selected, one of the inverted triangle icons next to the parent object is highlighted rather then another entry.

Click the + next to the parent object to expand the view and show that object's child objects:
