ANN: Seth V3.1 Released

Post by AndyP » Wed Feb 20, 2019 9:34 am

V3.1 changes .. thanks for the feedback and suggestions Matthias

Feature request:
On start-up the update notification is only now displayed when an update is avaible.

Feature request:
Store location of Seth on close so that Seth will revert to this position on start-up.

Feature request:
Allow minimized start. Right click on the icon when in minimized state for the option to start Seth minimized.

Bug Fix:
Fixed the linking of the documentation button. Was linking to a non-existent page.

Bug Fix:
When editor font size in LC Settings is different to the size selected in Seth, then line numbers are
different in size to the text in editor.

Please remember to export any custom themes before updating so that they can be imported into the new version.

The Login password for the download is as per your V3.0 release email.
If you do not have this please email me at sales@2108.co.uk

This is much better
A suggestion: If I click on an element in the seth list (e.g. "if"), and I hit the "edit" button, "if" isn't loaded into the dialog, "command" (I think) is. If I select an element and hit "edit", that should be the element that comes up in the dialog.

Do we have a place to share themes? I was able to build one from scratch in no time. I can't attach .txt files to forum posts, so I can't include it here.
Perhaps a repo somewhere...

What happens when you try to attach the file? Or do you mean you did not zip it first?

Other work arounds if you truly can't attach a text file, you could create a code block and just paste it :wink:

I'm not sure if there's a way to manually enter the settings so that they can be easily entered by someone else.
I didn't try .zip. I tried .txt and no extension.

So here's a theme I created in no time in seth3. It's based on what you get if you open an SOS in sublimeText 3 and use the Monokai Dark theme.

Thanks bogs for the suggestion on zipping the file

When a theme is selected the hilited element is the first in the list"commands". Once the editor is open the any element in the list selected is the one that can be edited.

Maybe I need to make an instruction note for this to say that the editor needs to be open before selecting an element.

Edit thinking about this it's probably safer if element selection is locked out until the editor is open.

The Theme Exchange is about 60% completed. I am building this with LiveCode exported HTML5 and LiveCode server scripts...interesting project.

Here's a screen grab of where I'm at:
ApplicationFrameHost_2019-02-20_18-03-26.png
As you can see I'm sorting the color rendering at the moment.

My plan is that you will be able to upload/download themes and create new themes by altering an existing theme very much like you do within Seth.

Uploads will be attributed by creator/author.

I'm hoping to have a working testable version online next week....watch this space!
