Description Andrew Rowland 2021-02-24 18:23:02 UTC
In Writer version 7.0.4 and earlier, the Navigator in master documents had a Toggle Master View button that enabled you to switch between a view that showed headings and a vwe that showed the files that are the constituent parts of the master document. The latter enabled you to directly open the relevant file in order to edit it.
In version 7.1 this button has disappeared, leaving the user no way to switch views and edit chapters.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a master document
2. Display the Navigator (F5)
3. Compare the buttons at the top with the attached screenshot

Actual Results:
No Toggle Master View button

Expected Results:
A Toggle Master View button is available for use

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
OpenCL is enabled.
I had to downgrade to carry on work on my multi-chapter document.
