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.

I have.  It just pops up the data source box like in the screen shot

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