I am trying to:
Add a new "Innerviews" post. This post type has not previously used a Toolset layout, and when trying to select "Don't use Layout", it automatically takes you to the "Edit Layout" admin for that post type and no matter what you try and do after that ie. select other WP Admin items in the left sidebar, it always redirects you to the Edit Layout page. It also looks like it might be incrementing layouts as I'm now seeing " layout-for-innerviews-5 " as a "Layout slug", but there is no way to tell as I'm unable to see the "Layouts" because of the redirect.

Link to a page where the issue can be seen:
Gog to "InnerViews/add new"

I expected to see:
A post admin where I can create content without being forced to use a Toolset layout

Instead, I got:
Stuck in the "Edit Layout" for "Layout for InnerViews"

Hello. Thank you for contacting the Toolset support.

I suggest, if you simply do not want to use the Layouts, just deactivate the Layouts plugins and that will help you to resolve your issue.

Layouts plugin is in maintenance mode and we are not going to add any feature to it. We focus on Blocks, so I suggest you can build your site using blocks and just deactivate the Layouts plugin.
