Re: Project Browser Selects something I didn't click

Are you using more than one display?

This has been known to happen when extra displays are connected and the tops of the displays are not aligned in System Settings > Displays > Arrangement.

Re: Vexing inconsistent problem with click location. Crazy!!

How risky do you think it would be to trash those monitor profiles in my usual user account? The Display Profiles are only required for colour calibration, they have absolutely nothing to do with monitor positions etc., If you do delete them you may end up with a different colour experience. If you...

Re: Vexing inconsistent problem with click location. Crazy!!

LiveCode does have a known problem like you describe when two or more monitors are used on a Mac and the tops of the screens are not aligned in the Arrangement tab of the Displays panel in the System Preferences. I have experienced this problem in the past, but since keeping my monitors aligned at t...

Re: Rounding to the nearest 1/16

Hi Craig, I just copied your original code into a button to test, but now I see how adding the "var mod" would fix the issue. I knew somebody would come up with a more elegant solution, but in the end I guess Opaquer finally nailed a single line code with the ceiling function, I never thought of tha...

Re: Rounding to the nearest 1/16

Not being an expert mathematician myself, I would just make a function, something like this. Just used a button and 2 fields for testing. Maybe there is a more elegant solution. :D on mouseUp pMouseButton put roundSixteenths(fld "input_Field") into fld "result_Field" end mouseUp function roundSixtee...

Re: Set the gradient of a graphic

Yes. You need to specify the properties using an array, "fillGradient" or "strokeGradient" in the Dictionary explains what each array element relates to. A good way to understand this would be to set the fillGradient of your graphic using the property inspector and then examine the array by using a ...

Re: Focus on a button?

AFAIK the only button that can receive focus on a Mac is the "Default" button (i.e. the Blue button in the tool palette). Often used in dialogue boxes where you typically don't need to click the button, just hit "Return" on the keyboard.

Re: Unexpected issue with disabled graphics style

I'm seeing this effect all the way back to LiveCode 5.5.5, so I'm guessing there is a reason for it, but I'm not too sure what that is! In earlier versions of LC, the text is greyed out when the graphic is disabled, so I can only guess that the shadow effect was to keep the text readable at small si...

Re: Double title bars on Mac

First, apologies for the long post, but I said that I would report back, so here goes. If you don't use a Mac and/or are no longer interested in the double Tab Bar issue, then please feel free to skip this post, but I hope this helps to clarify the issue for some people. The Dock Preference "Prefer ...

Re: Double title bars on Mac

Anyone here know the bug number or title offhand? Panos posted it earlier in this thread: https://quality.livecode.com/show_bug.cgi?id=21190 For anybody struggling with this, the workaround that I posted earlier does work, but if you use multiple versions of LC you will need to define the shortcut ...

Re: Code editor window

Unfortunately, LC does tie itself in knots occasionally, and the only way around this is to delete the preference files. Be aware, this will completely re-set LiveCode back to the default settings, but it should clear the issues that you have; Quit LiveCode Go to the Mac Finder, in the Finder Menuba...

Re: Double title bars on Mac

This is one I had a lot of trouble with, but then found a simple way out of it! The Menu command to hide the Tab Bar does show up very occasionally, but most of the time it is hidden, so I added a shortcut in the macOS Keyboard Preferences, now if I add the Tab Bar by mistake I can just type my cust...

I actually don't have a RunRev folder on my Mac.
You will have, but it may be hidden. Sorry I should have thought of that.

Pleased you have it working now. :-)

Re: Code editor window

Not too sure if this will work, but you could try putting this into the Message Box and hit enter: send "actionResizeStack, true" to card "main" of stack "revNewScriptEditor 1" As far as I can see, it should force the window to resize all of the panes properly. Make sure the Script Editor window is ...
