    In B4J 3.50Beta the "Debug" text is grayed and inactive.
    How to debug?

    You should be able to still use debug from the dropdown(mode).
    Debug on the top bar is grayed out across the top ion mine as well(I don't know why)

    The debug menu is enabled when there is an active debug session. Run your app and it will be enabled.

    "Debug" menu will not be enabled when the app runs.

    #Region Project Attributes
    #MainFormWidth: 600
    #MainFormHeight: 400
    #End Region

    Sub Process_Globals
    Private fx As JFX
    Private MainForm As Form
    Private Button1 As Button
    Private Canvas1 As Canvas
    Private Pane1 As Pane
    'Dim Red As javafx.scene.paint.Paint
    End Sub

    Sub AppStart (Form1 As Form, Args() As String)
    MainForm = Form1
    MainForm.SetFormStyle("UNIFIED")
    MainForm.RootPane.LoadLayout("main") 'Load the layout file.
    MainForm.Show
    Canvas1.DrawRect(0,0,Canvas1.Width,Canvas1.Height,fx.Colors.black,False,1)

    End Sub
    Sub linn
    Canvas1.DrawLine(0,0,100,200,fx.Colors.red,2)
    End Sub
    Sub Canvas1_MouseClicked (EventData As MouseEvent)
    linn
    End Sub
    Sub Button1_MouseClicked (EventData As MouseEvent)

    End Sub

    I tried it again and Erel is right the debug menu becomes enabled. The project I was working on covered the top part of the screen so I couldn't see the debug menu become enabled.

    @positrom2
    Is that not working for you?

    No, all other menu items are enabled rather the Debug one.

    All items across the top menu are enabled(black) except Debug(gray).
    When you run the project and select debug mode from the drop down (red arrow indicated) the Debug menu becomes enabled (black)

    Thank you giga.
    Up to version 2.8 there was no separate "Debug" menu in the top line.
    Having the grayed "Debug" in the new version is somewhat confusing.
    In the old version that "Debug" menu popped up nicely after having chosen "Debug" and running (you see how hard it is to define what is being meant).
    Now, on a somewhat dull screen. the difference between gray and black is not that obvious.
    After having learned this peculiarity it is ok.
