Hey guys,

I have a question about enabling/disabling the main or secondary menus in Drupal 8 (though I think this also happens in Drupal 7x if memory serves).

With a fresh install, I am able to toggle main/secondary menus via the Global settings successfully. However, once I toggle them within a theme (Bartik for example), the global settings no longer toggle the menus for that theme and must use the Theme settings from then on.

Is this by design?

(confirmed in my 7.23 installation also)

yes by design.

global settings ensure that newly enabled themes take on those settings. Once you tweak a theme from the global the themes settings override the global.
