    models builder tab missing from developer section!

    Hi there,

    I was following this guide

    and now my modelsbuilder tab in the developer area is completely missing! The only thing I changed in my web config was:

    <add key="Umbraco.ModelsBuilder.Enable" value="true" />
    <add key="Umbraco.ModelsBuilder.ModelsMode" value="Dll" />
    <!--<add key="Umbraco.ModelsBuilder.EnableApi" value="True"/>-->

    modelsbuilder tab is missing!

    it should be between published status and health check

    Can't seem to find anything online about this, can someone help me out?

    That tab is gone in v8. Go to a doctype and if you have model updates you will get a Save button with an additional "Save and generate models" option.

    Have you found an answer to this? I was also following that tutorial and have the same issue. I do not see a "Save and generate models" as Tim suggests.

    Hi Austin,

    You can generate the model in doctype settings!

    enter image description here

    You can generate models without custom tool

    <add key="Umbraco.ModelsBuilder.Enable" value="true"/><add key="Umbraco.ModelsBuilder.ModelsNamespace" value="MyClassLibrary.Models"/><add key="Umbraco.ModelsBuilder.ModelsMode" value="AppData"/><add key="Umbraco.ModelsBuilder.ModelsDirectory" value="~/../MyClassLibrary/Models"/><add key="Umbraco.ModelsBuilder.AcceptUnsafeModelsDirectory" value="true"/><add key="Umbraco.ModelsBuilder.EnableApi" value="true"/>

    I didn't realize you could save and generate models there. Thanks Nevin!

    I couldn't see the tab or the button 'Save and generate models' either until I ran the solution without debugging - hope that helps!

    Thank you for your reply Rosa. Nevin was able to help me with my question. I always choose to run my solution without debugging.

    For Umbraco v8, the Models Builder tab/dashboard got moved to the Settings section. Majority of the dashboards/trees in the v7 Developer section got moved with Setting section.
