Anyway... I guess it's too late to downgrade this app to version 8.1?
Well, I'm pretty sure you can open a 9.x stack in 8.x (tested opening 9.0 in 8.1.4 before posting, I assume it goes down to 8.1 itself).

Re: Image peculiarity...

Well, the most complete reference I could find on it came from 2.x's documentation (still reading through it), but it essentially says what Jacque and Klaus said. Images Images, like fields and buttons, are containers that are part of a stack and are saved with the stack. Unlike fields and buttons, ...

I know this will come across as extremely "stuffy" and "conservative"
That probably depends on whether your talking to children or not, to me it sounds pretty logical. Of course, I am old, stuffy, and more than a little conservative... :wink:

Re: On/Off auto-type in preferences

The items your looking for are under "Edit -> Options" in the script editor menus.

I usually turn the first 3 off immediately if they are on, highlighting is still kind of dodgy/slow, but not nearly as bad.

Re: Image peculiarity...

You think I don't know that "answer files" is a native command? ... Look carefully, however, at: "answers files". You might, I was surprised that what was essentially a typo worked, I didn't notice it till you pointed it out :) "answers files" :?: Ok, now I am confused :P Only imported images have ...

Re: Image peculiarity...

Oh don't be, Klaus, you just saved me from the last 3 days of banging my head trying to figure it out with what you did provide.

Hopefully someone who knows will chime in, I love the answers to *why*, not just the ones that let me *do* :wink:

Re: Image peculiarity...

The engines nit-pickiness I don't think is a factor, I'm playing with this in 2,3,6, 7, and 8. And you are not using the official syntax, either: Hmm, from everything I found about putting and setting the text of an image, the syntax looked right to me, however, I had also tried the statements you l...

Re: Image peculiarity...

Yes, the answer files actually does work, it loads the image into image "imgOriginal" just fine. I thought that once an picture was in an image control, you could then use the text of the image in the control.

I have one that has me stumped. I was creating a small picture demo to explore different aspects of handling, well, pictures.

Re: Spacing between lines on buttons

Well, it doesn't seem to work that way here (on Linux or on Windows), unless I am taking you too literally.

I used to skateboard when I was a teenager in the 1980s, no half-pipe master or anything, but I could get around, ollie up curbs.
I think they got much better once we stopped using metal roller skate wheels and went to those rubbery ones, but by then I was too old to trust em much.

Have you read the instructions that come with calendar pane? I was curious, so I downloaded it myself. I didn't see any instructions either on the web page, or in the zip file as separate text, so for the uninitiated this might be confusing.
