If I go to the model editor and imports a previously saved model (or any existing model) it is being imported as a single model instead of a group of parts that can be selected individually. If I click the model there is no "Open link editor" option, just copy and delete.

I'm using gazebo8 nightly: 7.99.00+hg20160430rb016c48c553c-1~wily

This is because is being imported as a model so it can be used in model nesting or other operations. To get access again to the parts the following actions needs to be performed:

  • Exist the Model editor to the simulation window
  • Insert your model
  • Select it, right click, edit model

And all the links and joints appear again as when you initially created the model.
