also for the record, this problem exists in v13.6 in windows as well as macOS. the copy & paste solution helps. closing and reopening the help tips window also generally clears the issue for a while. Alan On Tue, Jun 12, 2018 at 7:48 AM Pat Bensky via 4D_Tech <4d_tech@lists.4d.com> wrote: > We

We manage help tips this way: - For each object, select the On Mouse Enter form event - We have a Help Tip named "HelpText" which simply contains a variable, tHelpText. Select that Help Tip for each object. - On the object, populate the tHelpText variable in the On Mouse Enter form event. With

for the record, problem does not exist for v14 or later. this is basically a compatibility issue between macOS 10.8/9 and 13.6 (evidently a regression from 13.5, really sorry about that...), which was released in the first half of 2015. > 2018/06/12 13:22、Dan Ivy via 4D_Tech

I wouldn't beat myself over that. UI threads are never preemptive. (and who needs helps tips outside the UI?) 2016/11/08 6:22、Keith Goebel mailto:keit...@clear.net.nz>> のメール: Downside: Perhaps not such a good solution now, with Preemptive Processing not working when there are IP vars

Hello Jim & everyone, I still have this issue with 4D v13.6 in sometimes in Help Tips and sometimes in text fields. Has it been resolved somehow? Thanks! Alan On Sun, Nov 6, 2016 at 7:13 PM Jim Labos - infobase wrote: > Sorry for double post. I meant to post to 4D Tech) > > The first edit

Jim, I handle Tips text the easy way - simply assign an IP text variable to each tip. Have a method that either populates the variables or clears them - depending on whether you want text to display in the tips. Downside: Perhaps not such a good solution now, with Preemptive Processing not
