Win 8.1
Version: (x64)

The order in the View menu seems different to the Display Mode. Is is possible for the order in the View menu and Display Mode changed to be consistent?

Thank you

So the view menu is sorted according to the view tab bar (Normal, Outline, Notes), while the display mode button has Notes before Outline.

I can fix this, but the question comes down to whether it should be fixed, as presently you have normal next to notes on the top row and master slide next to master notes on the third row, which gives some uniformity in the rows, which would be lost if the top row was changed to normal next to outline. I would vote to keep it as is.

Heiko, Stuart, Adolfo: your thoughts?

The patch is here, if the agreement is to go forward
Comment 8 Heiko Tietze 2017-10-31 08:40:56 UTC
Wonder why the order Normal-Outline-Notes... is what I have in fresh and master. But anyway, I agree with the request to make it consistent with the tabs.
