Why in the script editor or in Blue MEL Studio when I turn on show line numbers I don't see them? Am I missing something??

I don't know about Blue MEL Studio, but in the Maya script editor, turning on line numbers will only print line numbers of errors in your script in the output window. There are no line numbers in the script editor or input window.

If you are hell bent on doing the development of scripts in the Maya script editor, you are out of luck regarding line numbers. I think that is one of the reasons for Blue MEL Studio.

If you don't mind an external editor, look at TextPad, or UltraEdit. Both great editors. I prefer UltraEdit.

try selecting all the text (in the editor part, not history) and hit ctrl-shift "L".... (I'm surprised no one replied about this yet)

cheers

Well color me stupid!

ctrl+shift+l

will toggle between dots, numbers, capital letters, and lower case letters.

Now that is nifty! Thanks for that tip!
