Re: Problems with htmltext

Hi Itarter, I tried to follow your recipe again and it does work for me. I seem to recall that the clipboard on Windows 10 was somehow not working correctly, I don't remember the exact version nor what exactly was not working properly.

Re: Tiny Dictionary and Plug-ins Folder in LC 8.1.6 for Linux Ubuntu 16.04

Hi Jorma, thanks for your kind words. the problem of installing tinyDictionary as a plugin is a Livecode problem, not a tinyDictionary problem. Beginning with LC 8.2.0 DP2 the Livecode way to organize the dictionary data has changed. This leads to missing LiveCode Builder entries in the current tiny...
