Hi - I'm wondering if you will ever be considering a certain feature. It's pretty much the only thing that's preventing me from using Powershell Studio much more frequently. Will there ever be an interactive console for debugging? I see we can Run in Console, which is ALMOST what I'm looking for. But often times while I'm in the middle of a debug, I might, say, want to take a variable that's an object and run a command piping it to something else to see what the result is. I know PowerGUI and ISE do this, but I think Powershell Studio is a tool much richer in features overall. Or is there a way to do this that I haven't figured out. I tried using the Debug Console in the lower left, and while I can do some interaction with variables in the script, I can't seem to set any variables.

Hope what I'm asking makes sense....thanks in advance for any feedback!

What you're asking for sounds exactly like the Debug Console that you say wasn't working for you.

Can you elaborate on what you mean by not being able to set variables?
