Hi Jeff,

Apologies for jumping into your conversation with Tim, but that issue with
1.8 was fixed before the 2.0 release [0]. I recommend, if possible, finding
a means of your students running 2.0.1 or 2.2.0, where a user can now just
select the items under the View menu. There are a couple workarounds for
1.8 listed on the issue page, however.

If it is some dialog disappearing in the main app, that is probably a
separate issue.
