Just to clarify for everyone -- this was extracted from a very long email interchange with support and lacks some context. We are trying to work out a problem where Manage Perspectives causes an error and an empty Manage Perspectives window.

I just deleted my perspective file in v5, opened Wing, and started a new project (default), and Manage Perspectives showed me the 5 or 6 perspectives I expected. Loading one got me the windows I expected, but of course no files in them. One thing I did notice that might be really important is that when I do anything to a perspective in the Perspective Manager, including renaming or loading it, I get an error message "That perspective already exists. Are you sure you want to overwrite the existing perspective "NAME OF PERSPECTIVE"? I say no each time. I don't remember ever seeing that message before this week.
