Summary0003736: Tree view and Property view are no longer available in View --> Panels menu
DescriptionThis was discussed some time ago in the forum but I am unable to locate the topic.

At some point during 0.18 development, "Tree view" and "Property view" were removed from the View --> Panels menu.

Those two widget options were useful to people with dual displays.

I have a 0.18 build based on commit 7b866816 from 2018/10/18 that still contains these menu items. One month later on a build with hash fc5b6288 the menu items are gone.
TagsNo tags attached.

Sorry, seems like this was fixed by commit d86c83d6c56. Why do I have to delete my preferences to get them back again?

Already fixed with d86c83d6c56

These two dock windows have been restored but an option was added to disable them. First the default value was to disable them but then later changed to be enabled.
In your case the parameter values must be set to false. In order to re-enable them you have to manually change your user.cfg.
In the parameter editor under Preferences > DockWindows > TreeView set Enabled to true. Do the same for Preferences > DockWindows > PropertyView

Then restart FreeCAD.

Thanks, meanwhile I found how to enable them back and was writing a comment, but you beat me to it.

Do we close this issue again?
