When changing layout while in template edit mode, buttons stay disabled

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Open e.g. a score layout, edit template set
  2. While editing, swith to different layout via top dropdown
  3. Result: The edit window closes and the new layout shows, but all buttons (left panel, right panel etc.) stay in “disabled” state.

To get back control, you need to go back to the first layout, where the “edit template set” mode will still be active. Hit apply or cancel.

I don’t know if this is intended behaviour or if this process might serve some purpose for some users. I had to quit Dorico and reopen the software because I did not realize what had happened. I just found myself with an unresponsive program.

Thanks for reporting this. The layout selector on the toolbar should be disabled when the page template or flow heading editor is open. We’ll make sure this gets taken care of.
