I am not sure what do you mean by "Layout menu" as the word "layout" is currently very ambiguous in MM5.

At the beginning we had only 'Desktop' and 'Touch' layouts, but later it was renamed to "Mode" and currently there is 'Desktop' and 'Layout' mode in menu > View > Mode
But only the 'Desktop' mode's layout (per tab) can be configured in Options > Layout

I meant mode. Good point that only the Desktop mode's layout can be configured in Options > Layout. Updated title and description.

Alternatively, it could be added to the View menu as its own checkbox item.

I think this is much desired, but that implementing this via mode would be confusing for a couple of reasons:
a) the 'compact mode' may not necessarily be mutually exclusive with tablet mode
b) the 'compact mode' will only appear for some skins (users would have no idea why)

Would it be possible for the skin to be configurable? i.e.
Tools > Options > Skin > Skin name [gear]
That way if a skin has a compact mode, it could be selected via the gear icon.

Added feature in 2512, as well as:
- Unified both Material Design skins into one.
- Changed Material Design's default style to dark.
- Changed default skin to Material Design.
- Added [deprecated] to Material Design (dark)'s title.
Same commit as in 0018449.

I wanted to add a note, but could do this only I reopened the issue ... could someone tell me if this was inappropriate.

Nice feature Drakinite.
I agree your suggestion that the skin configuration should be available from the View menu, if only for discoverability.
Couldn't it be done like View|PartyMode .ie a gear on the menu option rows for relevant skins, which took you into the existing Tools|Options|Layout|Skins dbox tab?

Barry, the 'gear' is actually implemented for the next build ( 0018483 ).

btw, opening bugs for feedback/clarification is fine as long as it's an issue resolved in the currently developed version. But yeah to a limit ;-)
