Within the last couple of days I have moved from the cozy world of WDSC 7.0 to the brave new world of RDP 7.6. So far my journey through this (with a little help from another colleague) has been smooth, and I have been able to get most everything working as before. However one area I continue to have some issues with is the Debug view.

While I have been able to successfully debug a few applications, the behavior is slightly different, and it might just be some set up issues. So here goes with my list of Debug issues...

-- When starting the debugger, there are several views available but it always seems to want to debug the program listing view. When it does that, the option that's checked to center the debug view doesn't work. How do I get it to consistently bring up the right view of the debugger so it does the centering correctly? Also, if it does bring up a view and I want to switch it while in debugging mode, how do I get to that setting? (It's similar to when it doesn't have the source available and presents you with three buttons to define where the source is, show the compiler listing, etc.)
-- Most of the time when stepping through lines of source code, it takes about 1/2 second for each step to occur (when pressing F5 or F6). Then there are the occasional bursts of speed that, if you're lucky, you go through 20 to 30 lines of code per second. How does this happen, and what settings affect this? (I'll have to see how the animated step feature works...)
-- Awhile back (in an earlier version of WDSC) when stepping through source, it also stepped through each line of an input or output file as well. It's not doing that in the later versions, which is OK, but there might be an occasion where I would want to step through those lines to validate some incoming information as it's being read in (e.g. hovering over the field names with the mouse, which I find convenient). Is there a setting change for this, or did IBM do away with these lines while stepping through your source?

Other things might come up as I fine tune this app, including whether or not a few observed quirks are now history in the new RDP. Thanks in advance for anyone's help/input/feedback.
