Project Menu Settings


After upgrading to 2018.3, my custom menu settings were reset, including the project menu.  Since then, I have been unable to make any changes to it.  It'll let me move things around and stuff, but (a) the "Apply" button never "lights up" to let me commit my changes, and (b) after closing the dialog, changes have not taken effect.



File -> Settings to get settings dialog

Select Appearance & Behavior -> Menus and Toolbars -> Project View Popup Menu.  Take something like VCS and move it all the way to the top, above "New".

Note the following.

1) APPLY button never enabled.

2) Hitting OK to close the dialog does not commit any changes.


I've seen this on both my machines (Win7 @ work, Win10 @ home) so I am VERY confused as to what might be going on.


Any thoughts / workarounds / working voodoo curses?


Hello Jeff! Could you please record a small screencast that shows the problem? Thank you in advance.


Sure - are we talking just a basic video capture of the steps, or is there some special website I should use or something? Also, don't  have a mic here so hope that's okay.


Haven't heard back from you so I went ahead and recorded one.  No audio, I don't have a mic at home and most screencap tools are blocked at work.  What you see in the video is me going into preferences, adding an "open file" menu item to the project context menu, saving, then opening the context menu to show that the "open" option is not there (it should appear just below the "new" menu item but it doesn't).  It doesn't matter what kind of menu item I go with, by the way.  I seem to remember trying to add a divider bar once and that didn't work either.

I don't see an option to attach a video.  A little help?


Or did this get blown into the bitbucket because it was marked "answered"?


I find the lack of feedback distressing.

However, the most recent patch (2017.3.4) seems to have resolved the issue in some way.
