Can't add a data source since 8/14 update

I no longer see the "Add Data Source +" when I try to connect to a data source and add a new data source since the 8/14 update.  When I click on the new data source icon or anywhere else in the app to connect to a dta source, I get a search box but no add button.  

 

Is this a bug or is there a new way to add data sources.  

 

Thanks,

 

Todd

I noticed this yesterday.  They've modified the dialog for adding a data source to default it to prioritize entities in CDS.  You now get a dialog where the tree view normally is that has a search box and some common entities.  At the bottom is a dropdown that shows the available connectors. If you click on a connector it will show you the existing connectors of that type and there is a '+' to create a new one.  Take a look at the following screenshot.

Thanks for responding.  I never get anything below the search box.  I don't see the Entities or Connectors drop downs like yo have in your screen shot.  All I see is the Search box.

Hey,

 

To add new dtasource I use the menu bar where is View->Datasource and then on the top I can see Add New connection.

I added a screen shot.  All I get when I click connect to data from anywhere in the app is the search bar.  Nothing more to add a new data source.

Try clicking on Connect to Data in the screen or go to the Data Sources on the View menu and try again.

Does it happen when you insert new Gallery and try to add new datasource there?
