Toolbox Release Notes | Build 20.1.1012.641
We received some reports of intermittent installation issues related to the previous 20.1.1006.641 Toolbox update. The issue has been resolved and the new 20.1.1012.641 build should be considered as a replacement build. The update was rebuilt without any modifications made to Toolbox. If you experienced issues installing the 20.1.1006.641 update, we suggest you request the update again.
The following release notes apply to Toolbox Build 20.1.1012.641

Grid View Settings

- Resolved an issue where selecting the Show Number Column setting in the Grid View Settings UI would prevent the Product List from opening.
- Resolved an issue where selecting “Disable Prompts to Save when Changing Column Widths” and “Disable Prompts to Save when Changing Font Size” by themselves caused the setting to not stick after closing.
