Typing xterm does work, but while using Wing the error in the console is: /Applications/WingIDE-188.8.131.52/WingIDE.app/Contents/MacOS/wingdb: exec: xterm: not found So something somewhere is failing. I'll take a read of the windb shell script I see if I can get it working. >> In the editor window there is a button bottom left which is obscured >> by >> the little apple window drag icon. > > Do you mean "right"?

Apple obviously heard of my plight and added international keyboard support in their beta 2 released yesterday. So it now works!
