Specify the default settings for whether the command line pane in the Session window is visible or hidden. The changes you make to the defaults remain until you change them again, even after you exit Minitab.
Tip

To show or hide the command line pane in the Session window only for the current Minitab session, click in the Session window, then choose Editor > Show Command Line. Or, you can edit and submit commands in a separate editor by choosing Edit > Command Line Editor.
