Re: On/Off auto-type in preferences

Well, given that Paul is having real problems with the script editor I think this is worth pursuing. When I (often) seem to have problems that nobody else can replicate, my first suspect (after my own code) is the preferences file. I especially had very weird problems moving up to LC7/8 because of i...

Re: On/Off auto-type in preferences

Paul-

Eight tabs *is* excessive. It's hard to believe that's the default. Mine's set to three, and it's configurable in the preferences panel.

Anything else you don't like about the script editor's choice of formatting? There may be a way to control it.

Re: On/Off auto-type in preferences

Yeah, pressing the tab key will do the trick.
Also, if you enable AutoFormat when you paste the code it will be properly indented. That's what AutoFormat is for.

Re: On/Off auto-type in preferences

Not sure what you mean by 'improper indentation'. Do you have Autoformat enabled?

Re: Alternative to PUT value INTO variable

If you want to monkeypatch your own preprocessor into the script editor, here's the code to handle the conversion. The works well for script-only stacks because you can write the code in a text file with a normal text editor, then run the conversion in memory so that the LC compiler doesn't choke. Y...

Re: On/Off auto-type in preferences

The blinking cursor is just before the first char of text, but when you select a block of text for copying you get everything to the left margin.

Re: FYI: python 3

Here ya go. In very general terms, the 'engine' is the non-script part of LiveCode. Lotsa lines of C code all put together by gyp and makefiles in a highwire balancing act. Abandon all hope ye who enter...

FYI: python 3

In case anyone else is tempted... setting python3 as the default won't even start to compile the source code. If you've got both python 2.x and python 3.x installed, as I have, ensure that python 2.x is the default for python. I ended up spinning my wheels for the longest time with a weird error fro...

Re: Looking for LiveCode coders

Should make embossed bytecoins instead. Then we could cut them up and bitcoins would be Pieces of Eight.

LC Documentation Cache Cleaner

I just posted a public domain Documentation Cache Cleaner utility stack to livecodeshare. When first launched, the LiveCode IDE will build a documentation cache for the current version. When you upgrade to a new version, a new cache folder is created, but any older cache is still in the system. When...

Re: How to install Livecode on the last Linux versions

That's weird. Not really. The github repository allows you to build the community project. The installer has to handle all the different editions, check the licensing details, package all the myriad parts and unpack them into the appropriate places with proper permissions, etc. There are good reaso...

Re: How to install Livecode on the last Linux versions

The installer isn't part of the FOSS code, so it's not on github. Peter B found the problem, but it's up to the team to fix it.

Re: How to install Livecode on the last Linux versions

Apparently the launch thing isn't important enough to fix (although it's interesting to note that apparently it did work in LC 7.0.6):

Re: Looking for LiveCode coders

@karmacomposer

NetPlan does indeed work with ubuntu 18.04. There's no nice gui front end to it that I know of, and that may be where you're thinking the combination of LC and node may well come into play.
