The 'Switch View Layout' button disappeared from the viewer.

The button was there one second, and gone the next. I know I can find the option in the view menu, but as I use it a lot its annoying. 

I had a 'invalid menu operation'  error a few times last couple of days, which was fixed by deleting the prefs. Maybe it has something to do with it?

Feels like a bug, but maybe I just pressed some button I wasn't aware of?

I'm on the latest version of AE.

 

Thanks!

Hi Tommy, Sorry for your issue. What's the version of After Effects you're using? Add a 3D layer to your Composition temporarily, it should bring the options back. Let us know if it helps. Thanks, Nishu

Dear Nishu,

my question would be, is this a bug or concept that the view option has been removed from its previous (comfortable) location?

Thanks,
Tom

Hi Tom,

 

This is how it's designed. However, engineers are working on making it better. You can share your feedback on the After Effects UserVoice: https://adobe-video.uservoice.com/forums/911311-after-effects

Let us know if there are any other questions.

 

Thanks,

Nishu

Hi Nishu,

I'm using AE version 22.3.0 (Build 107) and have been facing the same inconvenience of the View Layout option missing from the Comp Viewer.

So there is no way to Enable it back?

Thanks,

Juan
