Re: Community 8.1.8 for Mac

I don't know what you mean by "launch verification".

Can you explain, Please?

Re: Community 8.1.8 for Mac

No problems here with LC 8.1.8 on MacOSX 10.7.5

So, I would wonder if it isn't "something" wrong with your system, or the way you installed LiveCode.

Re: Seriously no sound on linux ?

I have LiveCode 7.1.4 and 8.1.8 running on Xubuntu 16.04 32 & 64 bit machines, Xubuntu 17.10 64 bit, and MX Linux with absolutely no problems at all. Sound? The ONLY sound that Linux users should be concentrating on at the moment is BANGING on LiveCode's door VERY LOUDLY so they implement sound in t...

Re: Height of progress scrollbar

The thumbSize of a horizontal scrollbar determines
how LONG the thumb of the scrollbar is.

While you can use scrollbarWidth to "fatten" the scrollbars in a field you
cannot, for some odd reason, do that with a standalone scrollBar.

Re: LiveCode License not function!

I have had similar problems, and why that happens is a mystery:
but it can be solved relatively easily: just
log into your LiveCode account and generate new off-line licenses.

Re: Tool change shortcut

HOWEVER:

Code: Select all

on mouseUp TRI
   if TRI = 3 then
      put "gottit"
      end if
end mouseUp
works perfectly.

Re: Tool change shortcut

On my iMac (10.7.5) when I click on
a stack containing this code with my
right mouse button:

Code: Select all

on rawKeyUp RUP
   put RUP
end rawKeyUp
I get NOTHING.

with this:

Code: Select all

on rawKeyUp RUP
   set the backGroundColor to red
end rawKeyUp
Nothing happens either.

Re: Tool change shortcut

Um . . . that could cause problems. How about modifying it a bit: on rawKeyUp tKey if tKey = 65473 then if the tool = "browse tool" then choose "pointer tool" else choose "browse tool" end if else pass rawKeyUp end if end rawKeyUp I believe that without pass rawKeyUp you won't get any reactions from...

Re: Seriously no sound on linux ?

to build educational programs for children - almost impossible without sound I don't know why, I have been authoring software for my EFL school for 12 years for machines that run Linux with no sound at all: they do exactly what they are meant to do; reinforce what I have been teaching the children ...

Re: Seriously no sound on linux ?

On Ubuntu 17.10 64-bit and MX Linux 32-bit exactly as you described.

The Unvarnished Fact is that sound and video are useless on Linux

and the LiveCode people don't seem to think it is worth addressing.

Choices with the scriptEditor

Please could the drop-down menu for script colourisation offer the
same choice of colours that is offered by the background drop-down
menu as well as the current ones.

Re: A darker Background editor ! Or more colors to the existing one.

Of course it is a this point where we need to ask
about alternative text colouration (say, white).

Re: A darker Background editor ! Or more colors to the existing one.

I wouldn't go near any of those "things" above, I'd just go to the Preferences:

Your settings should be kept for other versions of LiveCode.
