Game view disappears after playmode

Scene/Game View

-

-

Priority: 1Fix for next beta/patch release build

-

Severity: 2No workaround

This issue is floating and appears in a while when user works with Editor for a certain time.
Both GameView and SceneView should be visible.

To repro:
Create a simple project.
1. Add gameobject (cube, sphere, canvas etc).
2. Add some script (all projects contained Time.deltaTime()).
3. Start playmode.
4. Collapse Editor (?).

Actual result: If you expand Editor, Gameview will blackout (like no Display is selected).
Expected result: Gameview is not hidden.

Workaround:
Launch the editor with -force-gfx-direct flag.

Regression since 5.3.
Is present in 5.4 and trunk.
Tested on 5.4.0b24-b25-0f1-0f3, 5.5.0a3-5.5.0a5.

    For another workaround, save your window layout (top right drop down). When this happen, choose your saved layout and it will be visible again.

    If anyone needs the link to find the patch for this, you can click the following:
    https://unity3d.com/unity/qa/patch-releases

    I can confirm, for those that are wondering (and as a future reference for myself), that the latest patch (5.4.2p3 - Released on Nov 2) fixed the issue.

    Folks, 5.4.1p2 is *after* 5.4.1f1 - the build with the fix has not been released yet. It should be out in the next few days. If you're not using the patch releases then the next version you'll see that has this change in is 5.4.2.
