I have always thought that the advice to reboot the computer to resolve a problem with software was some kind of wild shotgun approach by first tier technical support for no better reason than it was one of the steps on the script they read from. I stand corrected. Rebooting my computer fixed the script editor/CTD issue. Go figure.

I then double click on the first object that comes up. I get the watch cursor but the script editor never shows. I can still interact with my app, but when I attempt to go to another card or stack LC crashes to desktop.

I’ll poke around to see what else I can come up with. If anyone else wants to try this so I can see if it is a real bug, and not just my stack, then I can post it in the QC.
