Bug Description

Ubuntu Studio QA-Test (Live) of 19.04 x86_64

From main menu, open Settings.Manager, then click Window.Manager

I like my close/minimize/maximize/rollup button on the left, so tried to drag/drop them from the default right position to the left.

It let me drag & drop as expected, except on drop they disappeared from the button-layout. This occurred with any button moved. I moved the window and had the same effect on either screen.

The button-move worked correctly as evidenced on other windows, but if I dropped it in the wrong position, I have to click All.Settings to exit Window.Manager then re-enter to see the button again to correct a bad-drop.

This a really minor glitch; that would soon be forgotten as this setting is used rarely.
