No "Space Tools" option while in "Documentation Theme" mode.

Hi I was trying to change the look and feel of a particular space because it didn't seem to change with the rest of the site. (Blue defaults, rest of site took after the uploaded logo)

I found how to manually change it. But I also came across this problem. If the space is in "Documentation" mode, there is no sidebar for space tools. The sidebar is populated with the pages in the space.

I had to find another space that used the default theme called "Public"; steal the link and replace the key with the other space that is missing the Space Tools option.

http://x.x.x.x/spaces/spacepermissions.action?key=Public

To

http://x.x.x.x/spaces/spacepermissions.action?key=Accounting

This was able to bring me into the Accounting's space tools and then I was able to change the theme to match the rest of the site.

Am I blind? Or is this a bug that hasn't been noticed. Where is the space tools option when the space is in Documentation Theme? In Confluence 4, the Space Tools was located at the top bar menu where you would go to the Admin Console.

Thanks!

Edit: Found it, there is a "Browse" menu at the top which I missed

Thanks

Don't feel bad. That is not where I expected to find it either.
