Known issues

  • JupyterLab V3 has a new "Simple Interface Mode" that activates automatically if you resize the editor window to a small enough size.
    • To get back to the normal interface go to: View -> Deactivate Simple Interface.
    • We are looking into ways of disabling this functionality because it appears to be rarely useful in automation cases.
  • On macOS Big Sur the auto-update Restart Now closes and updates the Lab correctly but does not automatically restart the application.
