Re: Spelling mistakes

Just do as Bernd suggested previously.
Once you have done a few it will just flow ;-)
Little edits on github are not onerous.
Of course adding the note file get old very quickly.

Re: Double title bars on Mac

Apple did change the system to enable apps to open in tabs rather than new windows (when you could open multiple windows in the app.) I initially thought this was a great idea and enabled this feature only to find the same issue as mentioned, not only in LC but a few other apps I used where I would ...

Re: Memory concerns

I made an epub reader for my own use. My first attempt coming from my hypercard days was constructed having a card for each page of text. There were shared controls on the cards and it seemed a simple way to go. When I did this and loaded my epub (1,500 page book) it was glacial. Simply going to the...

Re: Livecode Mailing List and Livecode Forums

Heh, we have quite a bit in common, punch cards anyone? Sneaker net? Transfer rates were great back then, but oh MY the latency... :D Well I used to have bootstrap the first computer I used and then load up the interpreter and then load in my program. That was using paper tape. How we celebrated wh...

Re: Livecode Mailing List and Livecode Forums

I am a tad old fashioned and also in a unfavourable timezone so being able to promptly respond on either the forum or mailing list is usually out of the question. So, rather than get dribs and drabs I subscribe to the digest edition of both the list and the forum. If I need to do an online search of...

Re: Devawriter Pro

Richmond, I noticed devawriter pro is listed on the Mac Update website.
Good to see.
Unfortunately the link they provide to the developer’s website doesn’t work.
You might want to check it out.

Re: Having fun with multiple monitors

Surely once the “switch” statement is read the engine searches for the first “case” statement that qualifies.
Anything else is redundant and ignored.
I daresay any statement between the “switch” and the first “case” will be ignored.

Re: Datagrid: changing cell style

Ah yes, there is a section “ How Do I Customize a Table's Columns?” The embarrassing thing here is that I compiled all the DG lessons into the guide, updating the screen dumps and instructions to reflect LC 8’s new interface a few years ago and completely forgot this section existed. In doing the co...

Re: Datagrid: changing cell style

I am sorry to hear that. I have found it invaluable.
There is even step by step instructions for adding controls to a column.

Re: Datagrid: changing cell style

I have used DGH since it was first released and have not ever attempted to do what it does so effortlessly.
Why not download the trial of DGH and see what it can do.
Otherwise someone in the know may be able to provide the steps to do it without DGH.

Re: Datagrid: changing cell style

The DataGrid Helper (DGH) provides the tools to add checkboxes, radio buttons, menu buttons, navigation buttons and more to columns in a table view. Indeed you can add any of the classic controls. You are in effect modifying the column's template (basically replacing the field with the added control...

DASH docset maker now at v3.6

I have just updated the DASH DOCSET MAKER to version 3.6. I finally think I found the syntax colouring bug. I also added the docs from LC 9.5.1rc1 to the DASH repository. They have gone through the Travis check and so should be available in 24 hours. The docset version is Livecode 1.7.7 DASH users s...

Sub-to-Srt updated - aug 2019

Rewrote the srt array build script to allow for repeated and non sequential indices. I had occasion to merge a forced srt with the standard srt in a text editor. Pulling the resulting file into Sub-to-Srt will now correctly re create the correct index sequence when you click on the "Re-Index" button...
