By default, the admin user can acces to special features of "developer mode" , for example: Manage Views, Edit SearchView, Edit Action, Edit Worflow and Print Workflow from the combobox in the top.

How do you able those "developer mode options" for other user (not admin)?

See the picture:


I duplicated the user admin with same permissions to test that but doesn't work. The duplicate user only can acces to these options: View Log (perm_read), Set Defaults, JS Tests, View Fields, Fields ViewGet and Manage Filters.

Hi Leonidas,


did you try to click on your name in the top-right corner and select "about Odoo". Then on the next wizard, click on the "Activate the developer mode". Is this correct or not?






Hi Julien,

That is correct, but it isn't the problem. See the picture:
