the story editor is generally in bad shape.

the command you're used to call was not working on some setups, so -- since it has a good replacement -- it has been removed.

a/ the story editor will be completely replaced at some time in the future by a new implementation

b/ with 1.3.9 you can do most edits in the frame itself, without using the story editor

c/ you can have both the style editor and the story editor open at the same time.

hope that helps
