Re: system date format

You fail to cozy up to the United States at your peril.
The ONLY reason I might do that is that the thought of getting into the bed with the Russian Bear is far, far worse. 8)

Re: system date format

druthers That's an obscure word very few people outwith North America are going to understand. It is bad enough having to put up with the FACT that LiveCode, while being made in Scotland, wants to cosy up to the North Americans by getting dates wrong! Who ever heard of putting the month in front of...

Re: Bug in dictionary browser

That's why LiveCode is marvellous: not what you'd expect.

For expectors there's always C++ and so on.

Re: Double Low Quotation Marks

The idea behind a 'fallback' font is that it should supply ALL glyphs in case an end-user does not have fonts containing glyphs required by a piece of software installed on their machine. Reading the name of the LiveCode HTML5 WRONGLY there's a clue as to why it doesn't "cut the mustard": Droid sans...

Re: Double Low Quotation Marks

Mucking around in the HTML5 folder LiveCode spat out I came across a font called ' DroidSansFallback.ttf ', so I opened it up on Fontforge and found that Unicode address 0x201E is empty! The horrible rectangle is the standard "glyph missing" symbol: pain3.png Personally, were I really obsessed with ...

Re: Double Low Quotation Marks

A bit of initiative might have led you here: https://azuliadesigns.com/html-character-codes-ascii-entity-unicode-symbols/ I don't know what operating system you are using LiveCode on (and, theoretically at least, I shouldn't have to care) . . . I just set up a stack with one field and a button conta...

Re: Double Low Quotation Marks

Those low double quotes are the bane of my life as they are used in Bulgarian, and once someone has started using them in an Office document, every time, during translation, when I try to use a high double quotation mark ("), LibreOffice bungs in a „. They are "kept" at Unicode address 0x201E (Decim...
