Re: Colored or shaded sections of code in the SE

The script property itself is plain text. So if you want to store an htmltext copy you'll have to work out how to keep them in sync. Htmltext does include the backgroundColor where set; indeed, htmltext was designed to reproduce everything in styled text with complete fidelity. I won't be able to kn...

You can do that in LiveCode, with LC Builder:

Unfortunately the MATE developers choose to ignore the suggestion to change window ordering. I'm hoping to grab someone's attention in a month or so and see if I can unravel the mystery.
Fisticuffs at SCaLE? Cool.

Re: Missing App Icon in MacOS build

Try copying the app to another folder.

Not quite. Subsequent posts seem unlikely to have been written while asleep. :)

No, you helped me a lot!
Thanks, BigGameOver. I've lost count of the number of times I've posted a solution here and the conversation keeps going like no one saw it. Glad this one helped.

Re: Inclusions not loaded?

Inclusions-related confusion comes up often enough that it would seem to merit immediate attention. Does anyone here have the ID number of relevant bug reports on this handy?

Re: POLL: LiveCode Server deployment

But if anything's amiss it's up to you to figure out what's wrong. Doesn't matter if it's syntax problems or runtime erro...
