Re: LC8.1.6 crash with color picker

Well, LC8.1.9 didn't help. It wouldn't do anything. It appeared to load the stack, but after that nothing would respond. The Window menu said there were no windows open, and it all just locked up. I haven't restarted--will try again after that. Failing that, I will try v 9.0.0. I don't need the late...

Re: LC8.1.6 crash with color picker

Thanks for the reply. I meant to indicate I was on a Mac with OS 10.13.2 and forgot. I will download 8.1.9 and expect that will be better. As to Richard's question about where I saw the report of a fix, it was on the list of bug reports. I did a search rather than attempting to submit a bug to see i...

LC8.1.6 crash with color picker

I'm only an occasional user and was working on a new stack for the first time in quite awhile. When I try to set a background color for the stack or an image, LC crashes. First it was with the crayons, and then I tried a different palette system and that crashed also. I haven't found a recent bug re...

Printing part of a card

I don't often look at the forum, so I don't know if this has come up. However, with LC 7, I can't print a card from some point to another point, say print this card from 0,0 to 500,700 however it works fine with LC 6.6.2. Stopping at "print this card" works as expected. Is this a known problem or is...

Re: First iOS attempt

Thanks for the replies. Looks like I'll just forget about trying to build for iOS. Maybe I should give my grandson my old MacBook and get myself a new one. :D

First iOS attempt

I have built a simple game which I'd hoped to give to my grandson to play with on an iPod Touch. I run an older MacBook with OS 10.7.5 (as high as it goes) and have been using the latest free LC. I read through a post from a few months back regarding xCode, and am wondering if, not only am I way ove...

Re: Repeat loop hanging

Thanks for the reply.

After I copied a portion of the script into this window, I had a closer look, and I think I found the problem. I'll work on it some more tomorrow.

Thanks anyway,
Dave

Repeat loop hanging

I am working on a simple stack to create a sudoku. I have a button to populate the grid with random numbers (which follows the requirements of no duplication in single row, column or block of 9) and it hangs somewhere in the middle. The main work is done inside a double repeat loop, one to work acro...

Re: Importing images

Thanks, Simon. Formattedheight and formattedwidth was what I needed. The rest was already in place.

Importing images

I want to import an image and base the action taken with the image on its dimensions. I've been using the answer file command, but don't see how to test the dimensions, because it appears it just fills whatever blank image is waiting for it. Is there a better way than answer file, or have I missed s...

Re: Playing card symbols

Perhaps there is a difference with this older version. However, as a hobbyist pensioner, I'm not about to spend the money to upgrade. It does what I want at this point (usually). With your code and no font specified for the field, I just get the same thing over: ♠ ♥ etc. If I specify t...

Re: Playing card symbols

Further to this, I found that working backwards with the symbols in fields using the Symbol font, the htmlText of the fields were: <p>™</p><p>©</p><p>®</p><p>ß</p>. These are, in order, spades, hearts, diamonds and clubs. If the font is not specified in the field, the proper symb...

Re: Playing card symbols

I tried the suggestion, but it did not work for me. I just get the expression in the field, eg. &clubs;, etc.

Thanks, anyhow.

Re: Playing card symbols

I should add that I'd like the symbols to appear both as button labels and in fields. The button labels could be dealt with as icons from image files, but if there's a font substitution which would work, that would be simpler.
