When running a python file in blender 2.8, I get the message Python script fail, look in the console for now. According to this question, I should be able to see the error in Window > Toggle System Console. However my window dropdown menu doesn't have a Toggle System Console button. How am I able to see the error messages?

I am on macOS High Sierra and have blender 2.80.

here is a picture of my window menu: window menu

  • $\begingroup$ Can you make a screenshot of your window dropdown and add it to the question please? $\endgroup$
