new location for extensions?

LC 9.1dp1 has the builtin extensions in a folder named "packaged_extensions" instead of "Extensions".
Is this an anomaly or should I count of this being the case moving forward?

Re: Cannot Copy Card in Project Browser

Yeah, there are lots of... um... limitations to the Project Browser. You might want to try a recent build of Navigator instead. It's taken me a bit of time to get used to the UI, but it does all the things the PB should. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kTbWhxH5uo0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/kz3zqi4bo...

Re: ID persistance

Klausimausi ranks much higher than a red shirt. At least blue, if not gold. 8)

Re: ID persistance

"Klaus' shirts are red" is correct syntactically, but implies that *all* his shirts are red. Otherwise it's necessary to add a quantifying modifier: "Three of Klaus' shirts are red". The fact that "shirts" and "are" are plural indicators eliminates the situation where Klaus only has one red shirt, a...

Re: Reset Control ID Numbering

Richard (raugert) - you can change object IDs after creation, as long as you don't duplicate existing ones. In general, new objects are created with sequential IDs, starting from the ID of the stack itself. You can set the ID of the stack itself, but that's not very rewarding since you can only bump...

Re: Whatś this message i linux Ubuntu Mate 64bits

linux Mint 17.3 LTS / cinnamon. And yeah, I know, it's "unsupported". LC's CEF browser doesn't work with all distros, and that goes for the browser widget as well as the engine's builtin browser commands. I think what I was remembering as "it doesn't crash anymore" is the fact that the dictionary no...

I regularly use numtochar(3) as a delimiter when I need something that is guaranteed to be unprintable.

Re: Can a function return two values?

I also have some functions that just return a comma-separated pair of numbers. As in

Code: Select all

function someFunction
local tWidth, tHeight

  -- do something here
  return tWidth,tHeight
end someFunction
