Enabling Lua errors in patch 7.0.0 + Legion?

Hi,

For some reason on my developer character after the pre-patch I cannot seem to produce Lua errors so it's very hard to develop AddOns. I went into the Interface menu but Blizzard removed the Help category/sub-menu and the "Disable Lua Errors" checkbutton is missing. On another character I can produce Lua errors but on this other character I use to develop AddOns it doesn't work. This makes me think it's a console variable I can change to enable this?

Does anyone else have this problem?

I type "/run for i, v and nil do print(v) end" in-game and this is obviously a Lua error, but nothing happens.. I've also put that line in an AddOn with no error reported.

EDIT: Ah, apparently it's because my developer character was on a trial account... I love to develop on a trial account because then I don't get harassed by battle.net friends... well this is annoying!

Thank you, both of these solutions worked. I thought BugSack / !BugGrabber were already installed but forgot I moved around AddOn files. Thank you
