OK, maybe I'm just having a brain fart, but once I open more than one instance of the scene editor, I can't remove the extra instances.

To recreate: Start a new scene. Open scene editor, open a new instance. Close them both. Open scene editor and they are both back.

Is there a way to remove the extra instance(s) without editing the scene file? It's like a damn zombie I just can't kill...

Open up the Master Plugins panel. You can remove instances from there. If you have no need for several differently setup Scene Editors, don't use the new instance command. I don't even have that command showing in my menus.

Great, thanks for that. Sorted.

The problem only surfaced cause I was stuffing around with shortcuts, and added a shortcut to "New Instance" instead of "Open". Made me realise what a pain on the butt it is to find out how to shut down extra instances of the scene editor though...

:) Aye, a good learning experience isn't always a pleasant one.
