Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make
Ubuntu better. The issue you are reporting is an upstream one and it
would be nice if somebody having it could send the bug to the developers
of the software by following the instructions at

tell us the number of the upstream bug (or the link), so we can add a

** Changed in: gnome-control-center (Ubuntu)
Importance: Undecided => Low
You received this bug notification because you are a member of Desktop
Packages, which is subscribed to gnome-control-center in Ubuntu.
Selecting "Single Display" often dosn't show scaling options until the
settings are applied.
Status in gnome-control-center package in Ubuntu:
Description: Ubuntu 17.10
Not sure how to check the version of the GNOME settings applet, sorry.
# Steps to reproduce
Connect an external monitor. Open the "Displays" section of the
Settings app. Select "Single Display" and select the currently
disabled monitor in preparation for switching to it.
The "Scale" selection appears, as it does when the monitor is both
selected and "Apply" has been clicked.
# What happens instead
The "Scale" selection does not appear, and in fact only appears after
"Apply" has been clicked. This means that in order to switch to
another monitor, you have to first apply an incorrect setting (scaling
will be wrong), click "Keep Settings," find your way to the "Scale"
selection, select the correct scaling, click "Apply" again, then click
"Keep Settings" a final time.
This is really bad when switching between monitors. The worst part is
that whether or not the option is visible is inconsistent.
