Re: Imported text characters are changed

John, your example characters look very much like what happens when you change text in the Apple/Mac character set to ISO-Latin (used by Windows). In other words, it sounds as though your original files aren't Unicode, and were prepared on a Mac and then imported on Windows. Is this possible? If tha...

Re: Which objects are at a given screen location

Try using the "within" function:

Code: Select all

put "120,140" into testPoint
repeat with x = 1 to 50
  if within (control 50,testPoint) then answer "Found one!"
end repeat
(The within function has some subtleties for graphics and images, so make sure to check the dictionary entry for it.)

Re: Proposal for changing a bit the Project Browser

I would suggest a single disclosure arrow to show and hide the options at the bottom, rather than a separate one for each pane. (If you're using one of them because you're doing layout-intensive work, you're likely to need them all. If you're not using one, you're probably not using any. And it's ea...

Re: Proposal for changing a bit the Tools Palette

Removing each section and then re-adding all of them when I need the whole thing is a bit... painful. ;-)

There actually is a keyboard shortcut for Browse and Pointer tools (look in the Tools menu), but this doesn't give me the on-screen indication of which tool is active.

Re: Proposal for changing a bit the Tools Palette

Can I put in a request: I would like a "mini-mode" that toggles the tools palette between full and just browse/pointer. (Most of the time I'm switching between these two, and the larger palette can get in the way—especially with the widgets section. At the same time, I want the whole thing accessibl...

Re: Visual effect behabior

Try using wipe instead of scroll. I think that's what you need:

hide image "123" with visual effect wipe up

Re: Using External Code Scripts

I'm no expert on the Windows command line, but it looks from the documentation as though you can use the Windows shell for the individual commands. If this is the case, you can do the logic in a LC script, and store interim data in a file if need be.

Re: Using External Code Scripts

I think breaking the application down into tasks is the first step, just to get clarity. So if I understand correctly, the needed Hugin commands can be called from the shell on both OS X and Windows, and they do the meat of the application. Your LC application will need to: - get the list of images ...
