when I start Blender version 2.66a, the Blender loads, and shows up together with a console window.

Now when I start Blender version 2.77a, the Blender loads without a console window by default. I only can show the console window by clicking Window -> Toggle System Console

How to force the console window to show up together when Blender version 2.77a starts?

Thank you

  • $\begingroup$ Note that the steps will vary depending on your OS. For example, in OS X you would right click on Blender.app and "Show Package Contents", then navigate to "/MacOS/blender" and run that executable. There is another way using Automator to call this from a Dock shortcut (but I won't get into that now). $\endgroup$ – Mentalist May 25 '16 at 13:38
  • $\begingroup$ @Mentalist, do you know how do I "Show Package Contents" in Windows OS? $\endgroup$ – hunterex May 25 '16 at 13:46
  • $\begingroup$ It doesn't work that way in Windows. When I wrote "steps will vary depending on OS", this is what I was talking about. Windows doesn't use application packages. $\endgroup$ – Mentalist May 25 '16 at 14:07

Append -con to the command line arguments passed to blender.exe.

You can do so by modifying the properties of your favorite Blender shortuct and appending -con in the Target text box.

The console window stays open then.

By your comments i suppose this is about windows. (would help to mention that in question as things like command line are very much os-specific)

One easy way to achieve this is to create .bat file, with content beind simply path to your blender install, like C:\...\Blender.exe. (Desktop > right click > new > Text file and then rename with replacing .txt with .bat) Then you can launch blender by running this "script" instead of blender shortcut, and command line should stay open.
