Re: Cant open *.livecode

I opened the .livecode files I have the backup from 10/18/2019 that works and the broken 1 in Notepad++ and it looks like the broken file is missing thousands of lines of code at the end of the file. I copied the missing data from the backup and put it into the broken file and saved it as a copy and...

Edit text size

When I first started using LiveCode I didn't know that there was a global default text size. Because of that, I have manually changed the text size of every individual object. I am now in need of changing the text size of everything manually to 15 from 18. After updating to version 9 the text doesn'...

Re: works in livecode but not when compiled

Fixed it, sorry, I had deleted this line by accident. Livecode still remembered it but the stand alone wouldn't.

set the defaultfolder to "\\10.0.15.15\Shop Drawings\Jobs\"

works in livecode but not when compiled

This is a tiny little printing application, I wanted to make it easier to print drawings instead of having to navigate folders. It works great while testing in livecode, but after I compile it, it wont work. Anyone have any ideas?

Re: I don't understand this error I'm getting

Thank you jacque, That did the trick. But still not sure why it has never come up in the last 5 years on the same database. also why it would work if you just clicked the button a second time.

Gold star for you, you taught me 2 things today.
