[Possible Bug] Missing 'Layouts' fly-out menu in v3.0.1

Not sure if this is a bug or not …
Scrivener Version: (1274136) 64-bit - 28 Apr 2021
Operating System: Windows 10 Pro 64 bit

when clicking the window button (left most Toolbar icon) and selecting the Layouts sub-menu,
there is no flyout menu shown

the arrow is there to show there should be a fly-out menu, but there is no menu

Strictly speaking, not so much a bug as it is that the feature’s not ready for prime time. :nerd_face:

At least that’s my recollection, that the built-in layouts for Windows Scriv 3 are not quite finished yet.

That said, you can enable them.

Go to Windows > Layouts > Manage Layouts. Click the three dots on the bottom left.

You should see this:

Uncheck Hide Built-in Layouts in Menus

With that setting disabled, the built-in layouts should now be listed, both in Windows > Layouts and the window button you mentioned.

But like I said, I believe the built-in layouts are not fully developed, so you will probably encounter problems with them.


thanks @JimRac
that solved the issue I had (built in layouts not showing)
not really worried if they don’t work as expected yet -
I still learning tips and tricks before getting into ‘proper’ usage
