Switching layouts in write mode -> always Galley view

I find that when switching Layouts in Write mode (using the dropdown menu at the top the screen) I’m always brought to Galley View. Whereas I would expect to see the last view I’d selected for that Layout.

Is this a bug or feature?

It’s a feature, inasmuch as Dorico doesn’t remember the last view type used, and instead always sets it to the default view type defined in Preferences. I agree it would be nice to remember, though, and that’s on our list of things to do in future.


Also if Dorico would remember the view scaling, that would save time switching modes.

Yes! I’ve also wanted this for some time. Especially important when quickly cycling through part layouts in the final stages.

Yep. +1
