Working with a card bigger than a screen

Post by newtronsols » Tue Jul 22, 2014 9:58 pm

In Windows I'm using Move

to preview the area of a card bigger than my screen. Any other tips?

From the Stack Inspector choose Scale Factor.
Cool new stuff.

Simon is bang on with his reply :) The scale factor property is great if you have a huge stack that you want to fit on a lower resolution display. More information on this can be found in the LiveCode dictionary under "scaleFactor" and here-

Nice feature, I even used scale factor .25. Worked OK. What would be nice would be Windows move, lock the visible card rect and then edit.
