Hi, I'm getting this javascript error for all pages in WP admin that use JS:

Uncaught ReferenceError: Toolset is not defined
    at ToolsetCommon.UserEditor.VisualComposerEditor.self.init (backend_editor.js:5)

I found someone is having the same issue here: https://toolset.com/forums/topic/js-error-in-admin-page/ but mine may be different apparently.

This is the file in the error message: .../wp-content/plugins/wp-views/vendor/toolset/toolset-common/user-editors/editor/screen/visual-composer/backend_editor.js

I duplicated the site and disabled Toolset plugin and everything works fine. I'm using the Genesis Theme Framework, however, I don't think it is theme related since I switched to the Twenty Fifteen default theme and the issue remains.

It looks like it is a conflict between WP Bakery's 'Visual Composer' and Toolset because I disabled all plugins except Visual Composer and Toolset and it's only when they are both enabled that the issue occurs.

Ideally, I'd like to remove Visual Composer but that would involve many hours of work, so meanwhile is there a solution? Many thanks

I think you experience this error?
https://toolset.com/errata/betheme-options-page-is-not-working-when-views-2-5-0-is-activated/

It may be that this happens with other themes as well, for sure the situation requires Visual Composer.
Please can you try that patch and let me know if this solves also your issue?
