    Hi all,
    To explore the versions, mostly looking for a display without the jumpy screens, I built lesstif versions (CVS and the last 2 snapshots), but those handy layer buttons and tool selection buttons aren't displayed. Is this normal for the lesstif version? I'm on gentoo x86, my lesstif is 0.95.0. I'm configuring with --enable-maintainer-mode --with-gui=lesstif.

    Thanks,

      That's intentional.  The Lesstif layout goal is "maximize screen space for your board" so those panels got moved into submenus on the menu bar, which you can tear off and place wherever you want.  CLick on the "-----" at the top of any menu/submenu to turn it into a dialog box.

        Oh, that is very cool. Thanks much. This lesstif version is MUCH easier on the nerves.
