Re: Navigating from once card to another problem

Richard exploits a terrific feature of grouped sharedText fields; you are essentially typing into all such fields on all cards at once. But does the OP want to see that " original" field when he moves to the "much smaller" card window? Yes, this is based on a guess about the design goals. Given the...

Re: Navigating from once card to another problem

If you:

- place fld 1 of card A in a group

- set the group's sharedBehavior to true
- place the group on all cards

...then you can type into it from any card without the need to fiddle with multiple stacks, window focus, etc.

Does that...

Re: Cannot open stack anymore after crash

Was the file stored on a networked drive, or in a folder synced with a cloud service like DropBox, iCloud, or Google Drive?

Re: Drap Drop file into ID of LiveCode

Thanks for posting that. I took the liberty of cleaning up the link so it goes directly to the repository.

Do you have a license file for that repository that I missed?

Re: Scrolling text -- like movie credits

You could replace the text with the formattedText to make apparent (non-parapraph) lines independently adjustable. But I think no matter how hard you try to do this by manipulating field contents, it won't likely perform as well as how other systems handle it. The key is that it becomes a much harde...
