Re: Pointer icon: limiting movement by axis

Pointer icon: limiting movement by axis

This is probably a beginner's question — but I can't find any mention in the literature or forums. When I use the pointer tool: • mostly its icon is four-way arrows (a cross: up/down/left/right); • but I've noticed that, on occasion, its icon is limited to one axis (a line: either up/down or left/ri...

Re: Trouble with "Grid spacing (pixels)" in the Preferences

I'm running LiveCode 9 on an iMac with OSX 10.11 (El Capitan). I found an option, in the Appearance tab of the Preferences dialogue, called "Grid spacing (pixel...

Crossed threads? "A stack xx is already in Memory..."

Hi. I keep getting the same message whenever I open or close my new stack. Screen Shot 2016-11-25 at 09.26.11.png Needless to say, the threat of data loss is worrying.
