Re: Open a LC document using a standalone

Hi Klaus, Thank you again for taking the time, not only to respond again but to define the Livecode unfriendly code definitions. I have implemented everything you, Jackie, and others have suggested, tested everything at least 5 times, and I am not a step closer to being able to open my stack in an e...

Re: Open a LC document using a standalone

Hi SparkOut, Ok I made sure the livecode document was in the "documents" folder, and that I included it in the standalone using "Copy Files" . So I made the standalone and now the standalone will open but the stack with all the icons missing and new text in text files will not save when the stack is...

Re: Open a LC document using a standalone

HI Jacque, Thanks so much for helping out here. Yes, I have a stack outside the standalone that the standalone can open. Yes, I copied the stack to pre-standalone version using copy files. The standalone will open the stack, but not allow me to save any changes to that stack. So I am sure I am doing...

Re: Open a LC document using a standalone

Hi Klaus, I used "copy files" to add the stack to the standalone, and I included the code you recommended to the openstack handler, changing the name to "Open Workshop". (Stand Alone stack name) It opened a copy of this stack that has no icon images, and when I reopen the stack, it does not save any...

Re: Open a LC document using a standalone

It looks like I had the exact same problem 2 years ago. How do I open an editable LC document using a standalone on a Mac?

Im still lost. Copying it into the Standalone renders in uneditable.

Any ideas? Max

Re: Open a stack in the same folder

I may have an idea When I added my stack via the "Copy files" tab , I believe it may have created an uneditable version of my stack. Perhaps I need to find a way to reference the pathname to the stack that is in the same location as the standalone, and then have it open that stack. Yes? If so, how? ...

Re: Open a stack in the same folder

Hi Klaus, What a dunderhead I am. I forgot to tell you this is for a Mac. I know I should be able to save changes on a stack outside of a standalone. I did add "Save this stack" to a closestack, but the changes would not appear when I reopened. Thanks for your help. I know Im missing something. My b...

Re: Open a stack in the same folder

Hi Klaus, Thanks for replying. I added my stack via the "Copy files" tab in the "Standalone Application Settings"! (But the stack would not allow me to make changes.) I also added my stack under "Stack files in the application. Both ways opened the stack, but all text added to fields was erased, and...

Here is the script in my standalone: on Openstack put the effective filename of this stack into tPath set itemdelimiter to "/" delete last item of tPath put "/" & "Sp...

Nevertheless, it is insanely difficult to get clarifications of things when communication is not back and forth as easily as it is with talking or chatting. I woul...
