Thank you for sharing this Norm. We are currently using Robot Studio version 19.1 and have run into this issue numerous times. There are a few instances where sometimes no items are also listed in the Global container requiring you to close the entire project and studio window and reopen it in order to regain access. These fixes will be very helpful.
