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.
