Cannot drag controls onto a card [solved]

Post by Verymuch » Sat Oct 30, 2021 2:20 pm

Dear forums,

I've just installed LiveCode version is 9 .6 .4 on MacOS 10 .13 .6 (High Sierra). My XCode version is 10 .1. The iOS SDK location is correctly set in the preferences.

I create a new default stack. I can't drag controls onto a card. I can't select controls that are already on a card. The pointer tool behaves the same as the browser tool. How can that be?

Regards,

Gerrie

Sounds like the cantModify property of the card or stack has been inadvertently set, or you have an object covering the card which has its cantSelect property set. Review these in the Inspector to see which is the case.

Thank you, Richard! That was indeed the problem. Somehow the cantModify property got set. Now my next quest is to find out how that happened...

I figured it out. Thierry Douez's sample stack "SunnYBeep", was to blame. I found his 5-star rated sample stack in the Mac OS X section.
After opening the sample stack, any new stack I create has its cantModify property set. I didn't suspect that a 5-star rated sample stack could be so cruel. :mrgreen:
