Missing Context Menu in Editor

after updating Node-Red from v3.0.2 to v3.1.7 I miss the very useful context menu (right mouse button - see picture) in the editor. Is there any way to activate it or does it no longer exist? Thanks in advance.


The context menu of the editor has not intentionally been removed.

Can you show us a screenshot of the editor itself from v3.1.7? I want to check you have the Monaco editor not the old ACE editor.

Also, you may wish to update to v3.1.9 (latest node-red)

Thank you for your help.
In this case, I did not install node-red myself, it was "supplied" with the Venus OS firmware from Victron.
On my Rsperry Pis I always use the installer command from the official Node-Red homepage.
This is the Editor:

That is the old ACE editor. It doesn't have the features of the MONACO editor.

If you have access to the settings.js file, update it as in this post: Getting the monaco editor to work in NR 2.x - #10 by Steve-Mcl

Hey, i only changed that in the settings.js and it works.

editorTheme: {
codeEditor: {
lib: "monaco"

In venusOS it is: /usr/lib/node_modules/node-red/venus-settings.js

Thank very much!
