    8.5 bin opened in 8.4 stuck in sifted mode???

    I reverted back to 8.4 after having the memory bug prevent rendering out. One of my bins is stuck in (sifted) mode and looks like 8.4 doesn't have the sift menu item available when I right click in the bin? Is there a way to get it unstuck without uninstalling 8.4, re-installing 8.5?

    Thx,

    Jayson

    The big change in 8.5 was a restructuring of menus.  I imagine the sift menu is just someplace new.  Try selecting the bin and then clicking on Bin in the upper menu bar.  Dig around there to see if you can find it.

    I do not know exactly where it has gone, just sharing my own "where did it go" wanderings.

    Good luck,

    Jef

    I don't recall either, but the HELP file should list it.

    On a PC I made a sifted bin in 8.5.3. Uninstalled 8.5.3 and installed 8.4.5.  Under the Bin drop down menu there is the option to "Show Siifted" and "Show Unsifted"  The Show Unsift worked on the 8.5.3 bin when running 8.4.5

    FWIW one of my 8.5.3 KB layaouts has "Show Siifted" and "Show Unsifted" mapped to it.  This mapping has just worked in the bin when I reverted to 8.4.5.

    "Show Siifted" and "Show Unsifted" are also in the bins hamburger menu in 8.4.5

    Cool good to know, I ended up reinstalling 8.5.3, unsifting the bin, and then reinstalling 8.4.5 which doesn't take as long as one would think :)
