Recent File List

Question

2017 is not listing recent files under the file menu.  I see a list of numbers 1-20 and that's it.

 

Using the migrated workspace I've been using for a long time.

 

MacOS El Cap, current VW sp2 on two different computers same result.

If I switch to a standard workspace, like "Architect" I see all the recent files.

 

If I edit my custom workspace first by removing the "Recent Files" command, saving workspace, editing workspace to add "Recent Files" command, I still see only a list of 20 numbers, and no files.

 

VW knows the recent files but will not display them in my workspace.

 

Did not have this problem in 2016.

After editing that workspace, then opening and saving a few files, does it populate the list with those files or remain empty?

I am unable to replicate this is a test custom workspace here, removing the list removes it and when I add it back, the same 20 items appear in the list as they did before the edit.

If you edit one of the default workspaces in this manner, does the same problem occur?

I just installed/upgraded to 2017 and have the same issue.  I have a custom workspace I have created and attempted to delete and re-add the 'recent files' option.  Just numbers, no names of files.  HOWEVER,  If I select '1' it does indeed open the last file I opened.  So I guess the bug is that the file names are not appearing/registering.  Any idea how to fix this or if VW is working on a patch?
