Problem #1:
This may be a new problem, because I don't recall it happening in prior versions.

While debugging a script, when I click on the 'Debug Console' tab at the bottom a '$' is already present, however I cannot type anything. I hit the 'Enter' key and get an error and the '$' goes away. I enter a '$' and all is well...then I enter a '(' and get an unhandled exception error.

I've created a very basic script to show what I've tried to explain above. I've experienced this problem in 2 ways: where the '$' is and is not present when initially click the 'Debug Console' tab. However, I always seem to get the exception error if I type '$('

I've also included the log file from the Unhandled Exception error. I know my attached pic of the "script" does basically nothing, but it does show the unexpected behavior. This happens when I try to debug any of my scripts.

Problem #2:
The 'Save All' menu item doesn't seem to be working. The hover tooltip states that all open tabs will be saved. If I click it, only the open tab's file gets an updated date.

Thanks for all the help.

For the first issue, I have been able to reproduce this and have filed an internal bug report with the development team.

As for your second issue, I have not been able to reproduce this. From your screenshot, I can see you have auto save on. Are you sure the file wasn't saved before you attempted to use Save All from the file menu?

Thank you for looking into this.

Problem #1
The problem above is at home. I also have PSS (v5.6.170 an older version) at work and have confirmed that it does NOT happen using the same key combo stated above.

Problem #2
This is probably me. For a test, I made a comment in both files, then hit the 'Save All' menu item and both 'Date Modified' dates in Windows Explorer changed as expected. So, it looks like there must be pending changes on 2 or more files for the 'Save All' menu item to work (but only on the items with pending changes). But the 'Save' menu item works anytime you hit it. Not a big just didn't work the way I thought.

Thanks Again.
