** Changed in: gnome-control-center (Ubuntu)
   Importance: Undecided => Low

  Selecting "Single Display" often dosn't show scaling options until the
  settings are applied.

Status in gnome-control-center package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  # Release

  Description:  Ubuntu 17.10
  Release:      17.10

  # Package

  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.

  # Expected

  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.
