Re: Cant edit my menu

Hi Craig & Jacque,

Just wanted to thank you. Managed to reactivate the menu using Jacques, edit button. Still can't understand how I lost it though. Thank you

Re: Cant edit my menu

Hi Craig

Apart from the menus appearing on my stack, I can view the buttons in the application list. However the menu builder isnt displaying anything. Wonder why the menu is not being recognised?

Cant edit my menu

Hey Guys, I've got a strange one.I created a menu, applied scripts etc to it. It was on the mac platform and I quite liked that it was up on the toolbar. I was experimenting a couple of weeks back with the menu and because of the PC build having menus on the stack I was deciding whether the menus on...

Re: Menus across the entire stack

HI Guys, Thank you both, no need to apologise Jacque, you've been most helpful. I'm learning by trying new things out I now know what the place group command does :). Just copied and pasted the group as per Craigs instruction, seems to work, pity they don't work as an inherited menu, but non the les...

Re: Menus across the entire stack

Thanks Jacque, I tried the placing the group, but because my cards are in a substack below the main stack no group gets placed on the card. I tried placing the menu group on another card in the main stack and that seemed to work fine. I don't think you can place groups in cards that are in another s...

Re: Menus across the entire stack

Thanks Guys,

Most useful, I've copied the menu group over from the main stack to one of my other stacks. That seems to work :)

I guess whenever I make a change to the menu structure in the main stack, I will need to copy and paste buttons and groups back to the other stacks?

Re: Menus across the entire stack

Hi Craig, I've looked at other applications, like FileMaker or Office for instance. They seem to have an application environment which contain the menus and then windows within this environment. I guess the stack is the application environment and each window that is loaded is a card. I suppose I am...

Menus across the entire stack

Hi Guys, I've built my app, which comprises of a main stack and then multiple stacks underneath. I've created a menu on the top mainstack and I wanted it to be applied to all the cards in my application. On a Mac it seems to work ok, I think from my limited testing, but on a Windows environment, the...

Re: Printing card not getting the correct height

Hi Max, thanks for replying. Figured it out after a lot of head scratching. It was my scroll bar area I created stopping the full height of the print out. All sorted now :D

Printing card not getting the correct height

Hi Guys I have the following script, which seems to be working unto a point. No matter what I can't seem to print the full height of the card. I have designed the card with a navigation area at the top which takes about 50pts, so I want the top of the card to start at 55. My card has been designed f...

Re: Print card from 0,50 prints nothing on page

Hi Craig,

Tried that, it just prints a blank page. Yet I know there is content in that printable area. In fact my whole page has got a number of objects dispersed all around the page, so it should catch something.

Thanks

However it just prints a blank page. Any ideas what I could be doing wrong? The "print card" command prints everything out and I'...
