I need help with the script window

I have a problem, when I type in distance in the command window, and I measure something, the command window does not show me the distance that I just measured. Please someone help me, is there a reset command window option?

Hi Ben- make sure you have at least a couple of lines of command history showing in the command area- the output from various analysis commands shows up there. Just pull the lower edge down a bit- does that do it?
