Hi Graham, Been having the same problem on my Amiga, so I've just looked into what I suspected was the problem, and it was. Namely that if the editor window is too big for the screen or offset so it'd overlap the edges it won't open. Now, I think there's a bug in View that causes windows not to open quite where they should sometimes, (or it may be just a Desktop thing), or not to open at all if they can't fit in the screen. So, if you opened your editor window to full-screen size and then closed it, trying to open it again might not work. (Just tested this and it's the behaviour I got.) Anyway, you can edit the editor's window size and offset in the edit-prefs.r file to be found in your REBOL directory. That should allow you to get your editor window opening again if your problem has the same cause.

If your View editor can be made to not appear by opening it up to full-screen size, does the same happen with the IOS one? Be nice to know it doesn't and that this is now a fixed bug. -- Carl Read
