Hello TSGal et al,



I have noticed that if in a script you open a card window, Pause the script and then close the window that it is not possible to change the state of the Status Toolbar, when the script is paused.


This seems to me to be a bug.

How to replicate


Create 2 Layouts + 1 Script:


New Window [ Style: Card ; Name: Get( WindowName ) & " - Card" ; Using layout: "OtherLayout" ]

Pause/Resume Script [ Indefinitely ]

Close Window [ Current Window ]



Make sure status bar is not locked

Run script

While paused, try to show/hide the status bar…

expected result:     You can hide/show the status bar, because its is not locked

actual result:          The Status Toolbar menu item is deactivated, although the toolbar is not locked


Workaround (none)
