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.

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

I tested this in LiceCode 9.0.4 and get the same error.
In the Screen shot I attached the variables have data in them and 12 / 1 shouldn't be a problem the first time, its not the second time

Re: Sorting data question

no, you aren't missing it, and I was just using the switch as a way to show what I was trying to get as a result. I guess my real problem is how to create tData(var) and then call them again later.
