In 2.8 how should addons add new objects while the user is in local-view mode and have them show up immediately?
In 2.7x this was accomplished by calling
layers_from_view on the newly added object: https://docs.blender.org/api/current/bpy.types.ObjectBase.html?highlight=layers_from_view#bpy.types.ObjectBase.layers_from_view
- User is focused on a particular object in local-view
- User invokes an addon to wrap the selected object in a new Lattice object
lattice = bpy.data.lattices.new('dc_lattice')
lattice_object = bpy.data.objects.new('dc_lattice', lattice)
- This new lattice object should be visible in local-view immediately (as-if the user had selected both objects before going into local-view)
The api no longer seems to exist and I’m unable to find an equivalent when searching. Should the addon manually go in/out of local-view mode and perform the selection itself?
Note: Objects added by calls to bpy.ops.mesh.primitive_* are shown in local view immediately. Somehow, intentionally or not, they are handling this mode (which is a good thing™)
