HOWEVER this is NOT what the OP was speirin after.

What the OP would like is big tooltips in the IDE for her own work.
And, for the tool tip to be shifted so that it is not underneath an enlarged cursor.

Re: LC Documentation

Thank you. I am sorry, I should have specified where the documentation is located. It is (at this moment), the Dictionary API, LC Script documentation that is online. For the link that you have above, that is for reporting bugs in the IDE, I think.

Unary minus

In the LC Dictionary, it states, The unary minus cannot be used with an array. I assume that this means that "-myArray" cannot be used. Or, does this mean that you cannot have myArray1 - myArray2 ? Linda P.S. Am going through the dictionary. Which version is usually the "latest"? The online version ...

LC Documentation

Where is the proper "place" to note what I perceive to be typos or mistakes in LC documentation?

Re: Tool tips

Now, if only the IDE would work the way that your stack works with the tooltips, all would be well. It is not stacks that I am making that have the problem, it is the LiveCode IDE that has the problem. I have not tried putting tooltips in the practice stacks that I have made so far. But, as I mentio...

Re: Tool tips

Nope, Richmond62. Zooming like that will not work for me either. For one, I will probably get motion sickness with constant zooming in and zooming out. Seriously, not teasing about the motion sickness. BTW, the tooltip is still hidden by the cursor when zooming. I will do OK until/if LC changes the ...

Re: Tool tips

reason you wish to magnify things is because of your own disabilities It is. 1. Buy a socking great TV and plug your Mac into that so everything appears 5 times bigger than 'normal'. No thanks. At a distance, like with a TV, vs. a laptop relatively close to my face, my vision is worse. 2. Use the Z...

Re: Tool tips

I don't see how to upload the image to your report. So, here it is in case you want to upload it yourself.

P.S. It may be Apple's problem and not LC's.

Re: Tool tips

Thank you for the report. Your screen shot that you uploaded does not show the cursor. But then, neither does mine when I use CMD+Shift+3. I will take a photo with my iPad of the screen of my Mac.

Re: Tool tips

I assume that you have Mac's own accessibility tools enabled, they do nothing to modify the tip? I do have them enabled and that is where the problem arises. The cursor is greatly enlarged and covers the tooltip. Because I also have the resolution set to "Scaled" and "Larger Text" (see other post) ...

Re: Tool tips

Yes, that is the one, Richard. It had been reported prior to my reporting a few months ago. I never looked it up but someone at LC said that it was a known problem. I routinely use (on the Mac) System Preferences/Displays/Resolution (Scaled)/Larger Text on the Mac. Lots of things don't quite fit rig...

Tool tips

I am vision impaired. I use a Mac. In the "Accessibility Preferences", I use an enlarged cursor all of the time. In the LC IDE, tooltips are (in my opinion) tailored only for the "normal" or small sized cursor that is the default on the Mac. When a tooltip pops up in the IDE, the majority of the too...

Re: Livecode Mailing List and Livecode Forums

Oliver, have you ever tried reading the archives of the mailing list here?

http://lists.runrev.com/pipermail/use-livecode/

You can easily sort by Thread or Subject, etc. That is usually where I read it rather than in my email client.

HTH,
Linda
