Since updating to Classic v8 the top menu panel no longer pops down if it's collapsed. It definitely used to, as I frequently have to use it to pause/unpause syncing.

Edit: Slight correction. It's the top panel and the left panel that won't pop out. The right and bottom panels do pop out.

I also noticed now that the arrow icons are different too, perhaps indicating an intentional change? If so, why on earth?

It is working here for me Andy.  Are you Mac? Windows?
Screen count? Resolution? Maximized window?

Hi Rikk,

Thanks for the reply.

I'm on a Mac, OS 10.14 (Mojave). Only one screen (iMac 27"), window is maximised to fill the desktop, but not Fullscreen mode.

To be clear, the panels pop out if I click on them, but not if I mouse-over them when they are closed.

In Grid view, the top and left icons look like this:


And the bottom and right icons look this this:



In Edit mode only the top panel won't pop open on mouse-over.

Cheers

We have so far been able to reproduce this behavior, Andy. Resetting the Lightroom Preferences might be worth a go.
