Using Indentation manager to fix indentation

Wing 6.0.5-1 (rev f63b60c5c0dd) on MacOS Sierra (10.12.1 (16B2555))

Looking at the doc pages for Indentation Manager, the page says:

Conversion options for your file are given below the horizontal divider. The three tabs are used to select the type of conversion desired, and each tab contains information about the availability and action of that conversion, and a button to start the conversion. In some of the conversion options, the indent size field shown in the indentation report is made editable, to allow specification of the desired resulting indent size.

However, when I select the "Spaces Only" tab, I get text that says:

This file can be converted. Select the desired indent size above.
Wing will convert all indentation in the file to use only spaces.

With no button to perform the conversion. Have I misconfigured a preference or something?

There is a bug in the current release that causes the button to be sized down.  If you increase the size of the indentation manager vertically it should appear.  We'll fix this soon. And somewhat ironically AllAnswered is only letting me comment and not answer this question, so I've put the answer into a comment!

We've issued a patch for Wing 6.0.5 that fixes this.  You can get it with Check for Updates from the Help menu. Also, figured out that the reason no answers are allowed is that this is an Article type post and not Question...
