usually (not only with Wise Studio), when some setting is not found in settings, I open registry, navigate to software/<vendor>/<product> and parse key names. If these look like user preference, then under HKCU. Another, less likely, source is something.ini in program directory.  If it exists, it will be there. In .Net applications, also config file somewhere under %appdata%. Can be found by monitoring with filemon while it is starting.

if you mean this windows (left side of the screenshot) it belongs to your code in your script. Some custom code are not compatible with the "all" page. You can click on pages then on all to switch, but you cannot save this setting for default.

If I open  WiseScript Package Editor and then open the .wse file, everything is fine.

The truncated menus only happen if I double click on the .wse file.

you must open with the Wise Package Editor and not with the Wise Script Editor.  Wise

I got it.

cyborgrd's comments made me think about the registry entries more closely.

At best, two of them were pointing to the WiseScript e ditor when they should have pointed to the WiseScript Package Editor.

But one of the entries was using the 8.3 abbreviation entries (e.g. WISEC~\...)

 Onc e Iclea ned all of those up, it wo rks as it should

thanks
