Description

There are a lot of settings that affect emulation when the software renderer is used but cannot be changed through the UI while it is selected. A (probably non-exhaustive) list of such settings is:
Start in fullscreen, Log Render Time to File, Render to Main Window, Immediately Present XFB, Dump XFB Target, Dump Base Textures, Dump Mip Maps
The only way to change these settings at the moment is to switch to a hardware backend or null, do the changes and switch back. There should either be a way to change them from the software renderer widget or the rest of the tabs should be made accessible even when software is selected.

We don't need the information from the issue report template in this case.

You mean the same way #13049 didn't follow the template but was accepted? I don't see what the difference is. Both are UI issues and filling in the template wouldn't provide any useful information. It's just bureaucracy at this point.

The main information from the issue template that would have been useful here is the version and if it worked in previous versions, in particular in DolphinWX, but yeah, it's not really necessary info in this case. For what it's worth: it is an issue in 5.0-17269, and it also is an issue in 5.0 (though I'm not sure whether the relevant options exist in 5.0).

I guess that's fair. Next time I'll do it. Also, Render to Main definitely existed in 5.0.
