Short description of error
Unsure exactly what I did, but a file I was working on refuses to update changed values in the World Properties tab in real time in the viewport.
If I turn toggle "Use Nodes", the values update.

I was messing with the Easy HDRI weeks ago in this scene. I don't know if that caused the glitch out, but I thought I'd note it just in case.

Here's the file stripped down to the essence to test.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  1. Open up the above .blend file
  2. Try changing/modifying the world values/nodes.

I don't understand the issue, yet. I tried changing the world values and now what?

Please describe the expected and actual behavior. A short screen recording might also help to make your case more clear.

No activity for more than a week. As per the tracker policy we assume the issue is gone and can be closed.

Thanks again for the report. If the problem persists please open a new report with the required information

Whoa, I didn't know that was a policy. My apologies for not getting around to this until now.

I have to say, it seems dangerous to assume a problem's been resolved just because there's been no activity for over a week.

In any case, new report: T73131

It was a non-written rule I believe, but I made sure to add to the bug report form this week (or last week). It is an unnecessary procedure unfortunately otherwise reports linger forever in the tracker (and we are putting an extra amount of effort to get rid of the backlog at the moment).
All said and done, thanks for the new report :)
