To see whatever object you have on Inkscape canvas, doesn't matter if
invisible or not, just go to "Object" > "Objects...".
All of the objects will be there.
I was the one that requested this feature way and was REALLY glad this was
implemented! Extremely handy feature.
Just like the Blender panel with all of the objects present in the Blender

- Happens, unfortunately. And people don't notice they are in one when
they try to draw something.

- I can set the fill and stroke gradient for a group just fine (in both
master and 0.92.x), what are the cases in which this doesn't work?
Your suggested change can make some actions take a lot longer, because
one needs to select only objects that have a stroke in a group, to
change their stroke width.

- It doesn't do that for me in 0.92.x, which I routinely use. But the
behavior is new in master - and I just noticed someone removed the
stroke width indicator in the lower left corner! Why was that removed? I
use it so often for quick adjustments.
I think these are bugs. This can't be intentional...
