Where can i see output from the GDL "PRINT" statement?

Hello,

According to this page: https://gdl.Graphisoft.com/reference-guide/output-in-an-alert-box-or-report-window 

When you call PRINT "some text" the output should be seen in a dialog box or the report window:

 

Writes all of its arguments in a dialog box or the Report Window, depending on Work Environment (see the section called “GDL warnings”).

 

When I am calling PRINT "some text" there is no dialog box showing and going to the report window (File->Info->Session report) nothing is printed. The text i quoted above is referring to a section called "GDL Warnings", but that link seems to be broken. And going to Options->Work Environment->Work Environment I cannot find "Enable PRINT - statements" or similar.

 

Thanks

You can set something in the work environment. Attached is a screenshot of the German version. This settings activates the dialog box (AC 25) in the gdl editor.

I have also noticed this. I would be interested to know if there is a reason why it has changed?

Apple iMac Intel i9 / macOS Sonoma / AC27UKI (most recent builds.. if they work)
