Re: Sticky remMenuBar

But as with any Mac app, what should be consistent is that only palette mode windows hide in the background. Sounds logical, but I'm curious about this statement : Is it a palette? I had thought they changed it to modeless due to complaints of stacks submarining beneath it . The curiosity on my par...

Re: Sticky remMenuBar

From time to time user feedback prompts the team to change palettes to modeless or vice versa.

Re: Sticky remMenuBar

Only palettes should go away when an app switches to the background. If you find any other modes hiding when backgrounding that would be a bug that should be reported.

Is it a palette? I had thought they changed it to modeless due to complaints of stacks submarining beneath it.

Re: Spacing between lines on buttons

Good to see you back here, Kim.

AFAIK button leading is based on OS text specs, and we don't currently have a property to adjust it.

Any chance you could use a field for that?

Re: Buttons in groups - Odd "feature" ?

The writing of the lists to the buttons is accomplished with the line : set the text of button pNameOfControl of card "Notes" of this stack to tListOfItems where pNameOfControl is the short name of the button and tListOfItems is the text list. This line works fine with buttons that are "just" on th...

Re: Assigning a keyboard shortcut to a button

If I hit [Alt + f] for instance, no matter the Os or the application, I'd expect to see a file menu open. That is pretty much universal, and Lc/Mc covers that correctly as far as I can tell. Are we talking about buttons or menus? Huh, Either you are pulling on my leg, or I didn't make it clear enou...

Re: Variable Math

I read the report as well (thanks for submitting it, Sphere), and my take was similar to Klaus'. The only thing worse than having a spam-filled forum would be a forum where merely improper English was treated like spam. The posts themselves contained no ads or links, and neither do the profiles.

Re: FormatForPrinting

Did anyone file a Bugzilla or pull request for that Dictionary entry to remove the parenthetical part about "(and not in memory)" from the Dictionary's formatForPrinting entry? That seems to be the source of confusion here, is only partially technically accurate, and explaining it would require far ...

Re: Assigning a keyboard shortcut to a button

[1.] The Alt key shortcuts are indeed mostly a Windows thing. [1a.] See, this is what makes me think we are not always talking about the same thing. I only ever remember seeing Alt key combos in relation to menus, not to buttons. I have to admit as this thread's grown I'm not sure I can follow it m...

Re: Assigning a keyboard shortcut to a button

The Alt key shortcuts are indeed mostly a Windows thing. Win 3.1 IIRC, before MS licensed UI elements from Apple. Motif supported then back in the day, but I don't know of any systems that ship with Motif anymore. Now all three desktop platforms favor Ctrl key shortcuts instead, with useful consiste...
