Thanks for the email with an attachment containing a patch addressing this issue. So, here’s the result of my tests.
To establish a base, we have 4 saved layouts. Namely, Default, Alternative, whole monitor canvas, and Layers on right.
I have no idea if this actually affects it, but if it does, this is what the preferences look like at the time of this testing:
This is what i want the layout to look like as my default:
This is the saved layout: “Layers on right
When we do a
Window Layouts >
Set Default Layout while "Layers on right is our currently selected/enabled layout:
It changes the layout to the saved layout: “Alternative
When we do a fresh open of PMNG, this is what we’re greeted with:
This is the saved layout: “Default
Honestly, idk how this came about. There was just one day where suddenly, Default
layout looks like this. This is why i started creating other window layout profiles in the first place.
Creating a new project:
This particular layout is not in any saved layout profiles.
I wanted to test some more by saving more window layout profiles and jumbling the steps of my process. But i realized there was no way to delete/remove profiles. So i opted to be more conservative with my testing.
In conclusion, the patch fixed the issue where the layer window suddenly vanishes (ref. 1st gif posted in this topic). But the issue of
Set default layout not working has yet to be squashed.
Hope this helps,
