Example case:
I open QCAD and I have automatically the “Untitled 1” drawing.
If I open now an additional, saved drawing I have all Blocks and Layer listed and I’m able to work normal with my drawing ...
If the “Untitled 1” drawing is NOT the active drawing and I close it with the X in the Tab I will lose the Layer and Block List (only the List!) in the other drawing ....

I have to play around with QCAD “Window minimizing” “Draft mode” or I have to reopen the drawing to get the Layer/Block List back!
Seems to be a refresh problem .....

Funny is that this not occurs if I have opened a couple drawings .... but in this case I’m able to switch (and refresh?) the drawings with the tabs ....

This task depends upon
