Screenshot of the dialog

The script console has two components: the output viewer which allows to view errors and output coming from the execution of the plugins and the script editor which allows to edit and execute scripts.

Each one of these can be resized or hidden using the separator between them.

When the editor becomes too small some of the advanced controls are hidden.

This dialog is dockable by default but can be transformed into a full self-standing dialog.
