can't open or save

Can no longer open or "save as" any files at all. I am running a Debian-base OS. Anyone encountered this problem?

Also can't add to project, the menus aren't greyed out, but you select the item, and nothing happens. I'm running WingwarePro7.

Tried unstalling and reinstalling as well. Nothing.

Ctrl-O does not work either. Ctrl-S works, but Ctrl-SHIFT-S does not work. It's a very curious error.

Yes, this is pretty odd. What exact version of Wing 7 is it and what specific Linux dist and version? Did it break when upgrading from Wing 7.0 to 7.1? The two use different versions of Qt, so that might be relevant. Another thing to try is to move aside ~/.wingpro7 to see if something in there (preferences or the default project) is somehow causing this. That's not removed across a reinstall so could be the issue.

This is also known to be a bug with the snaps on some Linux versions (file dialogs simply don't show up).
