How do I determine what driver to ...

Re: Garage Band Files don't get listed

One of the ways round this problem is to search for all the "things" lying around one's Mac desktop (or elsewhere) and separate them into 2 fields: one for "things" that have suffixes, and one for "things" that don't; then run a second routine to move all the "things" in the have-suffixes field into...

Re: Change the textSize in the variable pane of the SE

Well, it took me a few minutes to think about that one: If you open any old stack you have to hand and open the scriptEditor for any object, and then open the properties palettes you should be able to select the stack "revNewScriptEditor 1" and then the group "Variables"; and then you can mess aroun...

By "skew" I mean what in GIMP is called "shear".

Re: Is there a way to Tilt and resize an SVG Widget by script V / H ?

I'm not sure what you mean by "Tilt".

Rotation and altering either vertical or horizontal height is relatively easy.

I would like to know if there is a way to Skew an SVG (or any other image, for that matter) within LiveCode:

Re: Garage Band Files don't get listed

One of the problems with Apple's "farting around with folders masquerading as files" is exactly the problem you encountered: how either LiveCode or "simple" end-users like Thee and Me can work out what is a folder or a file on first sight.

Re: Garage Band Files don't get listed

Things like this are obvious only after you learn them. And learning takes different speeds for different people and different subject. Undoubtedly. BUT: if one knows Mac OS X's "kinky tendencies" [i.e. the 'funny' folders that pretend to be applications] & that .band files are not showing up . . ....

Re: Garage Band Files don't get listed

I opened Garage Band for the first time ever (Mac OS 10.7.5) and save a file called "test" to my desktop. I ended up with 2 files; "test.band" and "test" (no suffix). Neither of them were listed (LC 8.1.8). The answer to this is that "test.band" and "test" are NOT files, but folders in the same way ...

rawKey signals

While you may be using a Persian keyboard layout connected to a computer running Windows XP I am using a US English keyboard layout connected to a computer running Macintosh 10.7.5: which is super when we want to type in languages with which we are familiar. It is not so super when we want to develo...

Re: Hyphenation of long words

it's very close to a good hyphen
Well, as we know, all good programmers go to "Hyphen"

Re: Hyphenation of long words

This will be completely language-specific. The first thing you are going to need is a routine to determine if a letter is a consonant is a vowel or a consonant . . . I assume you have a word in a fld called "fVOX", and you have a fld called "fINDX" repeat until fld "fVOX" is empty put char 1 of fld ...
