Presentation details are not being inherited from Base Template

Issue

We were facing a problem that when we inherit a data template from any Base Data Template then it inherits all fields perfectly from Base template but does not inherits it’s presentation details as a workaround we use copy to functionality for derived templates..

Reason

In sitecore 8.1 rev.50621 when we inherit a data template from any Base Data Template then it inherits all fields perfectly from Base template but does not inherits because of sitecore’s known issue with id 442036.

Solution

To resolve the issue, please implement the following patch:

  • Replace this string in the \Website\sitecore\shell\Applications\Content Manager\Dialogs\LayoutDetails\LayoutDetails.xml file:
    <CodeBeside Type="Sitecore.Shell.Applications.ContentManager.Dialogs.LayoutDetails.LayoutDetailsForm,Sitecore.Client"/>
    

    With the following:

    <CodeBeside Type="Sitecore.Support.Shell.Applications.ContentManager.Dialogs.LayoutDetails.LayoutDetailsForm, Sitecore.Support.441858"/>
    
  • Copy and extract the attached Sitecore.Support.441858.dll file to the Website\bin folder

Try to use the Layout Details dialog.

If there are any issues with this patch, please let us know.
