Re: Custom keyboard

Heck, just a few posts back Well: 1. Some people, let's call them the "meThree" people, are just looking for something to justify some of their own behaviour. 8) 2. Some people are just plain ungrateful for help when it is offered: especially when it does not either: 2.1. solve their problem straig...

Re: Custom keyboard

what sort of custom keyboard would you program in LC for a desktop app?
That strange Scottish person who lives in Bulgaria would love to, so that end-users could use his Devawriter Pro to type
directly into something like a LibreOffice Writer document . . . . 8)

Re: 9.5.1 RC-1 Import snapshot

LOL This mostly works for me when it locks up Well, unless I print that out, laminate it in plastic and glue it to the wall I am not sure how on earth I'm going to remember that when the time comes. 8) Also, to be quite frank, I am getting fed up with the whole KDE thing and am probably going to in...

Re: Custom keyboard

Whatsapp (which I use to communicate with my Mum) is NOT a "facebook thang," it is an app that belongs to a family of apps that allow voice-calls and text messages: others include Viber, Signal, Threema, Telegram, Wire and Riot.IM. If Whatsapp is a "facebook thang," it is only insofar as Facebook o...

Re: Strange Fruit

Well, that is a source of great joy: I removed ALL of my add-ons from Waterfox, restarted Waterfox and the problem has gone away. Thank you SparkOut for your very great help. :D Being a bit stupid, I did NOT note down the names of all the add-ons before I removed them: BUT they were all aimed at dow...

Re: Strange Fruit

No: MacOS 10.14.6

Presumably Malware, if it has been installed as Firefox add-ons

[Waterfox]

"just" removing the add-ons won't be sufficient.

Re: Custom keyboard

Possibly misunderstanding this . . . :D Tried this: on mouseUp open process "/Applications/Audacity/Contents/MacOS/Audacity" end mouseUp and Audacity did not start. Equally: on mouseUp open process Audacity end mouseUp Note: On OS X systems, you can use the open process command to start up an applic...

Re: Custom keyboard

I doubt it as LiveCode does not seem to be able to send key commands to other applications.

Re: Educational stuff

My "Boys and Girls" stack was put together fairly quickly.

It gives me great pleasure to tell you that today 2 of the 11 year old girls who
attended my LiveCode introductory classes in the summer identified 5 problems in it
and sorted them out. :D

Re: Copyright Question

If one considers all the effort that has gone into preparing images and so on for educational materials that are now, supposedly, out-of-date, it does seem churlish to continually reinvent the wheeel or plough effort, energy and time into doing an awful lot of work all over again. This also refers t...

Re: Copyright Question

Frankly I really very much doubt if anyone is going to chase after my reproducing images from my collection of antiquated textbooks (i.e. those I used when I was at Primary school: 50 years ago, ho-hum). They are very old-fashioned; the only 'thing' being that in amongst that old-fashionedness there...

Copyright Question

I have a collection of Primary school textbooks dating from between 1963 and 1971 that contain a large number of drawings and diagrams that I could use in educational programs. - textBook.jpg - As far as I understand (?) European copyright expires after 50 years. I am quite sure that the authors of ...
