"Save all" "Detach all" and "Delete all" always appear greyed out

Something went wrong with my TB and suddenly a couple of attachment-related 
options always appear greyed out when I read an email with an attachment!

"Save all" "Detach all" and "Delete all" 

I am sure I have used these in the past. Either an update or an addon must 
have screwed things up. 

Any sugesstions?

You can do either of two :

Keeping message selected in message list pane, goto File > Attachment

or

Right click on the blank space next to the attachments.

Thanks Nir! That does work.

Now this is funny.  The blank space click works for me *only* if I double 
click on the message to "open" it maximised.

If I blank-space-click next to the attachments while the message is in the 
preview panel underneath the messages-list; then those options still remain 
greyed out. Don't know if I make myself clear! Did I find a new bug that I 
ought to report?

It appears that the context menu changes focus when you initially delete 
a single image (either in a previous or in the current message) 
resulting in the "Save all..", Detach All.." and Delete All.." 
functions being greyed out.  Try double-clicking anywhere in the blank 
space near the attachments, This should restore the focus and bring back 
the "...all.." functions.

Thanks Al. That worked. I was totally astonished. That's one of the 
stranger GUI quirks I have seen in a while now!

Using "+" or "||"

"JROC" / "JROK" / "JROCK" / "JROQ"
I just started a new contract and the tech lead told me that he wanted me to become familiar with something called "JROC" (among some other tools). I've been searching the web and I haven't found any dev tool called "JROC." Based on the name of the tool, it sounds like it encapsulates some javascript functionality. I have tried searching for different spellings - "JROK" / "JROCK" / "JROQ" but I haven't found any matches. Have you ever heard of a dev tool by this name?...

No "Update" or "Delete"!
Hi,I am using the dataset wizard to connect to a SQL database. The wizard creates my dataset and generates  "Select" and "Insert" statements but no "Update" or "delete". What can be the reason? By the way, this happens only on certain tables and not on others. I just can't figure out what the difference between these tables is. And, they all have a primary key. Actually I found this error before, running the configuration for the table again gives me that, sometimes I had to delete the table and start again. Hope this helps, let me...
