Layout options quirk 2

If I open a file go to Write mode and then Layout options (ctl+sht+l), nothing happens. If I switch to engrave mode and go to Layout options (ctl+sht+l), it works. If I then go back to write mode and try Layout options (ctl+sht+l), it works this time!

Strange but true!

I should have said this is DP4.

Perhaps this is a windows quirk? Cmd+shift+L works reliably for me.

Iā€™m on Windows 10 and can not reproduce this case.
I open a project, it opens in Write Mode, and I can open the Layout options dialog right from the start.

(Windows and Dorico is running in German here.)
