no edit list values link if there are list presentation setting but no list content

Ran into this issue today

If you have a list and you don't give it a different list content but you do give it list presentation you wont see the "edit list values" link so the check for list values is only on differnet list content and not different listpresentation

ok here goes

Initial template with no list content ( as banner had no title container it was not needed to change title )

Image

now we edit the list and we see no edit list values ( but there are list layout defined )

Image

now when i change the list content type to anything

Image

I now have the edit list values

Image

I should also see this link if I only have layout settings for the list

Yes, this is "by design" but the design isn't perfect :)

In a future version, the "content" will become optional, but ATM it's required because we're not sure what other side effects exist. so at the moment you must simply set a title or something for the content-type to work with this.

I would like to add that you can always create an inline button like [List:Toolbar]. I'm not 100% sure but I guess it might work - otherwise just give it a title-field in the list-content.
