Re: Saving takes over 20 minutes

The stack is 30,437 KB. The part that was taking over 20 minutes was saving before the building actually started. I used a stopwatch when saving and it takes 21 and a half seconds to save. Is that unusual for this size stack? I started the stack 5 to 6 years ago in i don't even remember what version...

Re: Saving takes over 20 minutes

Yes, saving the stack before saving as standalone application.

I figured it out. It's because i was saving to a network location. Saves in like 15 seconds when I made a local copy.

Saving takes over 20 minutes

I recently upgraded my computer to a much better one and unfortunately Windows 10. It used to take a while like 1 to 2 minutes to save on my old computer, but now it takes well over 20 minutes. Any ideas to try to get it back to normal?

Windows 10 Pro x64
LC version 9.5.0 | Build 15503

Re: Cant open *.livecode

I opened the .livecode files I have the backup from 10/18/2019 that works and the broken 1 in Notepad++ and it looks like the broken file is missing thousands of lines of code at the end of the file. I copied the missing data from the backup and put it into the broken file and saved it as a copy and...

Edit text size

When I first started using LiveCode I didn't know that there was a global default text size. Because of that, I have manually changed the text size of every individual object. I am now in need of changing the text size of everything manually to 15 from 18. After updating to version 9 the text doesn'...

Re: works in livecode but not when compiled

Fixed it, sorry, I had deleted this line by accident. Livecode still remembered it but the stand alone wouldn't.

set the defaultfolder to "\\10.0.15.15\Shop Drawings\Jobs\"

works in livecode but not when compiled

This is a tiny little printing application, I wanted to make it easier to print drawings instead of having to navigate folders. It works great while testing in livecode, but after I compile it, it wont work. Anyone have any ideas?
