is a color

It tried testing input for "is a color"
I found "255,255,1000" returns true.

Re: Dropbox OAuth help

Use OAuth 2 access token instead of flow.
At https://www.dropbox.com/developers/apps/ click on your app, leave Allow implicit grant set as Allow; then Generate access token to use in your app.

Re: Problems printing a field with grid lines

I submitted a bug report at http://quality.livecode.com/show_bug.cgi?id=19016
v or h grid lines causes the bug.
A table is filled in with black when printed.
Curiously, printing to pdf is normal, although printing to the adobe pdf printer causes the same issue.
