"answer folder" anomalies

Post by kurt » Sat Jul 16, 2016 8:26 pm

Mac 10.11.5 and LC 8.01:

answer folder "Please choose a folder"


presents a dialog with the option of choosing a folder, but does not show the string "Please choose a folder" anywhere.

Have tried the as sheet option, but no difference. Seems to work as expected in Windows 7 and 10, so is there perhaps something I have forgotten?

Thanks.

Bug #16264 -- MacOS only.
Current workaround (the textsize is bit tiny).

Code: Select all

   put "Choose a folder:" into tt
   answer folder tt [with myPath] titled tt [as sheet]
The same holds for answer file and ask file/folder.
shiftLock happens

Thanks, [-hh]; I suspected there was a bug in there somewhere.
