Description Ernest Barnett 2021-03-11 06:41:08 UTC
Navigator Master Mode cannot be accessed due to missing button or improper function of remaining button. Worked correctly in 7.0.4. New single button is probably meant to be a toggle: Master/Content(as in earlier versions) but retains function from 7.0.4  of select Content only.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open a Master Document
2. select mode button in Navigator
3. try to toggle to Master mode from Content mode

Actual Results:
only Content mode is possible. Master mode not accessible.

Expected Results:
Toggle between Master and Content modes

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No
