Re: Rotate a line?

Forget what I said about performance. With judicious use of lock screen and unlock screen in the repeat loops, performance is quite good. So, here it is again fixed and running smoothly in V.7

Re: Rotate a line?

Oops, I meant to say

BTW, be aware that versions 6.7 and 7 runs significantly slower than earlier versions of LC. Versions 6.6.5 and earlier run significantly faster. I've heard the experts explain why but I don't remember.

Re: Rotate a line?

So here's what's going on. In LC versions prior to V7, the points of a line could be designated as something like 100,300,400,500 . . . 4 numbers on a single line. V7 now requires 2 lines so that we now need something like 100,300 & CRLF& 400,500. (& = ampersand). A fixed version of Harmonic Oscilla...

Re: Rotate a line?

OK, I know what's wrong. LC V 7 requires that points of a line be handled differently than earlier versions. I will fix my Harmonic Oscillators stack and repost a link to it ASAP.

Thanks,

Re: Rotate a line?

Here's a fresh copy of my Harmonic Oscillators stack: https://www.dropbox.com/s/wwwrxqehi01739m/Harmonic%20Oscillators.livecode.zip?dl=0 The Pendulum Tab DOES show a pendulum WITH a line that does NOT disappear on my machine and many others. If your copy's pendulum line disappears, perhaps we can he...

Re: Screen Flash and Visual Effect

I spoke too soon. It just came back with a vengeance!! Open plugin stacks are definitely NOT the cause of my screen flash problem.

Re: Screen Flash and Visual Effect - Solved?

Some time ago, I reported a problem with random screen flashes that came about with the release of Yosemite and all recent releases of LC. I think I may have discovered the cause. The problem seems to be exacerbated by having plugin stacks open. My setup was to have 2 of my favorite plugins automati...

[ANN] colorPiquer

colorPiquer is a utility stack I developed to collect and manage the color palettes of all my projects in one place. I’ve got it to the point where I’m finding it to be quite useful, and thought a few of you might also. It is free to use as you wish. https://www.dropbox.com/s/dqj943e8roe58yx/ColorPi...

Re: Twiddly knobs

I believe you'll be able to lift whatever code you need from my radioDialOmatic utility. But remember, I'm not a real programmer!

Re: Screen Flash and Visual Effect

Thanks for the great ideas, most of which I had not thought of. Unfortunately none of them make a difference! Still get the flashing. BTW, I may not have been clear about this but, this problem started only after upgrading to Yosemite. I've used this "unlock screen with visual effect ..." for years ...

Re: Screen Flash and Visual Effect

Here is a link to my sample stack that results in screen flashing on my Mac running Yosemite, if anyone is interested:

Re: Screen Flash and Visual Effect

Thanks Klaus and Jacque,

I'll download 6.7.1 and if I continue to get the flash, I'll make a test stack and bug report it.

Re: Screen Flash and Visual Effect

Exactly my experience as well. I thought that I had partially solved it by turning off transparency in Yosemite, but not so. It is very annoying!
