Re: Issue with weird spacing between letters on Android

Hey Jacque Yeah, I don't know what was going on with it either! I ended up having to edit the fonts I wanted a bit anyway since I didn't like how the numbers were looking, and when I did that, I made a bold version to use. I think I figured out the problem I was having though: I *think* if a standar...

Re: Split a Fraction into Words?

Hi Jon I'm not sure if there's a better way, and I'm not at my computer so can't test things out, but immediately off the top of my head, I'd recommend saving the text of field "Test" into some variable, and then using the split function - something like: put the text of field "Test" into testVar sp...

Re: Issue with weird spacing between letters on Android

Hi Jacque That makes sense about Arial having bold and others not, but some of the other also have a bold version, though in hindsight they're all named things other than fontname-bold or something similar. The weird thing is that on my computer when I'm working on it, the textStyle does change to b...

Re: Issue with weird spacing between letters on Android

Hey richmond So, I was going through my options trying to find a font that would work and came across something weird. I've downloaded a few fonts, I can see them on my computer and can transfer them through the app onto my phone, and can see them there too. The only issue though is that I can't set...

Re: Issue with weird spacing between letters on Android

That did it! Combining that with this thread and I managed to figure out how to get the text to transfer to my phone! Thanks so much for the tip, I would have spent ages going through every single control I had and manually changing it!

Re: Issue with weird spacing between letters on Android

If you have a look at the enlarged separately in the imgur album, it does have a bit of a gap mostly after the a and the e... Maybe this font doesn't like vowels??? First the o and i in option, then the a and e in separately and even a bit of the e in control... Something to think about! As for tryi...

Issue with weird spacing between letters on Android

Hey guys So, I'm in the final stages of alpha for my sudoku app (only like 4 more bits of feedback to work on and it's done! woo, finally!), and one of the bits of feedback from my testers is that some of the text has weird spacing to it. I confirmed with everyone in the test program that it was all...

Re: Making a substack for Android that's the right size without a black border around it?

Edit: So, this is once again an issue of me having tried almost everything while thinking I have tried everything, and 5 minutes later I figured out the one thing I hadn't tried, which is the thing that works! I changed the code to set the size and fullscreenmode and to open the stack to a button in...

[solved] Making a substack for Android that's the right size without a black border around it?

Hey guys So, I realised that I have a lot of settings to play around with in my app, and that I'm about to start running out of room on my card for it all. I want to make nested settings options, and instead of making a new card just for that, I wanted to make a popup appear with all the appropriate...

Re: mobilePick issues with text

Ah, that makes sense! Unfortunately last time I looked at it (like 5ish years ago), developing for Apple required an actual physical Mac instead of just a VM, plus it costed like $100 USD annually for the app to go on the app store, and I didn't want to deal with all that especially since I don't ha...

Re: Rounding to the nearest 1/16

Hey Jon Could you use the ceiling function instead of round; something like this: on mouseUp put ceiling(measurement*16)/16 into roundedMeasurement end mouseUp With measurement being the decimal you want, and roundedMeasurement being the output? Basically, at the moment for 4.3333333333333333, when ...

Re: mobilePick issues with text

Hey Jacque I updated to 9.6.1 and couldn't find the settings under the standalone settings anywhere, but it's totally fine - I told my tester the issue and they understand completely. They use the app in dark mode anyway, which doesn't clash with the phone settings, so it's all good :) Thanks for th...

Hey Jacque, I've got LC 9.6 - I'll see if I can update to 9.6.1 and see if that helps with it! Thanks for the tip!

Re: mobilePick issues with text

So I did some research into it, and it looks like it's an issue with MIUI 12. Their latest option for dark mode forces dark mode on as many apps as it can, even if the app itself doesn't support dark mode. As far as I can tell, that's the only reason that's happening, as other used have complained o...

Re: mobilePick issues with text

So I did a bit of digging into it, and it looks like it's an issue arising from my tester using dark mode on their phone, as it doesn't happen when dark mode is disabled. My phone doesn't do it, so I'm guessing it's something that's either phone specific or OS specific (the phone has the latest vers...
