Description Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2016-02-15 22:27:09 UTC
1) Open Draw
2) Notice that there is no message in the the Properties tab under the 'Properties' title.

Regression as the message is there in 5.0.4. Previously a blank Properties tab had the message 'Properties for the task that you are preforming are not available for the current selection'.

Hopefully a variant of the page tab (bug 83830) or slide section (bug 89466) can be added to Draw so that its not blank, but as the sidebar is open by default since 5.0, it isnt good UX to see a blank tab and not know why.
