Re: LiveCode Dictionary - Empty?

Hi Barry, I had this problem too. To fix it, I loaded an earlier version of LiveCode (which I still have installed) and then launched the dictionary from there, then closed the dictionary and older version of LiveCode--and then reloaded the current version.

Thanks again,

If I place a Text Entry Field onto a Stack, and then create a Popup Menu (i.e., as a Button Menu), how can I set it so that whenever the user right clicks in the Text Entry Field (i.e., such as after highlighting text), the applicable Popup Menu disp...
