    i'm looking for a console command that would f u cken reload said unit palette

    or any other help that would allow me to continue perverting this fine toy with all the tools available

    any help is guaranteed a virtual cookie in return

    Try toggling the options in the View -> Show UI menu. You can turn off the list of existing objects with the Show Palette Existing Objects option.

    Since I've never used a mac, I have no idea how things work on it, but in Windows, there are 2 things the editor uses:
    - EditorVariables.txt in your operating system's profile folder
    - registry entries for editor things

    Maybe it's possible to "fix" your problem by deleting the variables text document or deleting (make backup before) of the editor's registry changes.

    Uninstalling something doesn't always delete everything created by a program.

    thank you, yes .. "doesn't always delete everything created" .. thats why i'm weary of reinstaling

    you right, i'll try the sweeping before the great reboot (i mean, i'll try them ALL one by one .. )^,; )

    thank you for your time

    @houndofbaskerville: Go

    I came here to post the exact same problem.

    I'm thinking that there was a recently added patch that broke this functionality.

    Keep in mind, Galaxy Editor updates every time we open it.

    How do we go about reporting bugs to the big heads?

    Well i got a ticket from blizz that got me a link to battle net forums ...

    i sincerely hope you can get mapster users' help (where/when i couldn't..) mac users don't really seem to get too much attention .. and for blizz the editor is ..mmm (clearing throat not to .. secondary.

    glhf (good luck .. have faith)

    YES.. reporting it to blizz on their "support contact" (getting a ticket going (with all your info/screenshot if required and error logs etc.. all that you can do really), then resending it as unresolved with a message ...) is "good" .. it gets to show them the bug (whether anyone invests in resolving the issue remains to be seen)

    then posting on forum ... then praying

    i must be too old but i haven't got the will to do more than message blizz and surf (to see how the last posted mac users where treated/helped/issues were resolved/ignored whatever).. i get angry and disheartened when my hopes get up and get squashed and i know it.

    i'm sad .. have to get an old pc back into shape or wait for Hots editor (more and more the "out with the old and force in the new" is getting to me.. sorry, but i miss my editor, it s been 2/3 weeks without units and 1/2 without doodads ... :( :( :( :( :(

    ps: again sorry.. but like i told blizz: "i better hope every mac user gets it" .. or we both can bin our galaxy (i still remember how much good it did to cry out in the night for staredit)...

    pps: i don't remember if i tested the editor directly after i reinstalled (before updating by logging in) ... (plus i might have missed something when clearing the sc files) .. still that would be a s hitty work around.

    ppss: im on 10 6 8

    Did anyone ever find a solution to this issue? Just opened the editor to find this issue too.

    Very much the same as you reported. No unit pallete. All other palletes work fine, but I'm unable to place new units :P
