I just installed Microsoft 365 (had no choice in the matter, neither here nor there).  Now the right-click "Change Icon" function is not working - dialog just fails to appear.  I can open IP itself but the right-click option is on the fritz, even after a reboot. Anyone else encounter this?  Suggestions?  Uninstall/reinstall? Thanks, Daiwa

I'm on Win10 Pro 1803. The following issue has been present for some time, since at least WB version 10.7.4, perhaps 10.65.  A recent update to Reader DC has made the issue worse - the title bar had been missing but the menu bar & window controls had been visible making it usable if funny looking until the recent Adobe update.  Just decided to update to 10.8.0 to see if the issue would go away but it hasn't.  The issue occurs despite total exclusion (Do Not Skin) of AcroRd3...

Just FYI for devs. Have two rigs, both Win7ProSP1, both using the same skin (slightly modified Primavera by essorant), both using Firefox 50.1.0 with same theme and plugins. One rig still has WB 10.46 beta, the other WB10.5. The rendering of tab text in FF changed with 10.5 - rendered in white in 10.46 beta, in black in 10.5. All the best & Happy New Year!

Thought I had glyphs figured out - Ha! I went to do a button glyph & SKS shows the Attribute (& subattributes) but won't give me a drop-down box to designate an image. What am I missing? Thanks, Daiwa
