Just installed FPP6.1.1 and this is probably a very dumb question but I don't seem to be able to see the Creation Tool options appear at the bottom of the Item Editor???  Tried installing on 3 machines now and nothing.

I've got 'Custom Edit' mode selected....but the options to generate objects along a spline or at each vertex aren't there. Any ideas?

Hopefully I'm just doing something dumb and not seeing the wood for the trees :)

Did some digging and realised objects on a spline are now controlled in Distribution in Path mode..   Still can't seen the Creation Tools but I guess they'll turn up. I can do what I need to now anyway.

Yes tools have been moved (and improved) to distribution roll-out.
What feature are You missing?

I noticed this too. 

It's unfortunate because there are times when I use Custom Edit to place my vegetation and there are times when I want to remain in custom edit but array a line of trees or shrubs at set intervals.  The workaround was to duplicate the Forest object, set it to Generate distribution along a path, then in the original Forest object, attach the new items that have been arrayed along a path.  Would it be possible to bring that functionality back in an update specifically for Custom Edit distribution?
