    Have they scrapped the Pre-Game Editor? It's nowhere to be found in Steam..

    I've also done all of the below and the tools option is not there under Library or anywhere within Steam?

    @scorpio: The pregame editor is currently bugged and crashes with certain functions. That seems to be one of them.

    @GORT: Update FM23 first. Then restart Steam and you should see the editor in your Steam library (ensure "Tools" is checked).

    No sign of the editor here either.
