Re: 9.5.1 RC-1 Import snapshot

LOL. At any rate, you *should* be able to get by without a reboot. This mostly works for me when it locks up: press control-F6 that will give you a full-screen terminal prompt log in with your usual name/password combo type ps ax | grep livecode the first line will be your hung process type kill -9 ...

Re: Strange Fruit

Here's what I use for downloading youtube content: https://en.savefrom.net/1-how-to-download-youtube-video/ Just set this as a bookmark, don't download the helper app. There's a malware doppelganger of the helper app around somewhere, and I'm not sure how to tell the difference. But the website does...

Yeah, that's looping multi-frame. And 2MB is what I was thinking, since I just tried a 2.1MB image and got rejected.

forum metaquestion

I can't find an appropriate forum for questions about this web forum, so I'll try here...

What's the maximum size attachment you can upload here? Even simple gifs give me a generic "too large" error.
I can't find this documented anywhere.

Re: script local bug or file corruption?

I have found that editing and saving a script clears script local variables. I don't know if this is new behavior, but I frequently have a situation where an initialization routine fills in an array and then later handlers make use of the array. If I edit the script I have to run the initialization ...

Can foreign aggregate types be nested? If so, what's the syntax?

Re: Refactoring Support for the LC Script Editor

Updated with the latest build, 1.0.14.
Now supports a FILO stack for 'go to definition' and 'go back' commands instead of just one level of breadcrumbs.

Re: Will Livecode Work After Brexit

To be honest, this question seemed so unbelievably daft I felt what is needed was an equally daft response.
Boris seems to inspire those things.

Urk... I've used "Boris" and "inspire" in the same sentence. I've obviously had enough for one night.

Re: Toolbar and KDE

Good to know.
I mostly don't use the backdrop based on habits of years of it not working, so I never think about it.

Re: Toolbar and KDE

I don't hang out much in the web forum, so I'm coming a bit late to the party, but... I made a change in the way the backdrop is refreshed for LC 9.5 to enable it to work properly on linux: to wit, refreshing the stacks after placing the backdrop rather than before. This *shouldn't* have had any rep...

Re: Linux, Linux, Linux

the "substack of" thing is, I think, also related to the fact that the Project Browser pops up with the same stack selected. I'm not sure what's going on... it doesn't seem to have to do with stack mode. I'm guessing it's just the last stack selected. And here the "selected" refers to the last plugi...

Re: Hiding stacks from the Project Browser

I admit to not seeing the advantage of toggling this in other situations unless you're trying to create your own PB, but nonetheless... this patch provides a second optional argument to the revIDEStacksForDataView() function. If you're invoking that function yourself then adding a true argument woul...
