Custom attribute layout maps all attributes to one one side rather than a two column format in the web-client.

The Custom attribute layout looks to be broken in RTC
Custom attribute layout maps all attributes on the LFS side rather than formatting them in a two column format.

All the attributes are aligned to only one side.
This was not the default behavior in RTC 3.0.X series and all the attributes were aligned correctly.

Is this a defect ?

There is a work-around to resolve this issue:

Adding a new Key "useOverviewLayout" with value "true" resolves this issue and give a multi-column format

Given the issue - and versions (works in 3.X but not in 4.X) and workaround found,
I found I am facing the new behavior introduced with the fix for
defect 184971 (fixed in 4.0 GA).
At comment 2 - Larry stated:
The prior implementation mapped the Custom layout to the Overview layout and put the left slot in the Details section and the right slot in the Description section.

The fix maps the Custom layout to the H layout, with left and right mapped properly.

If you have an existing Custom layout and want to have it use the old technique, then you can add the property "useOverviewLayout" to the tab presentation and it will use the Overview layout as before.

(which is what the referenced technote describes)
