I don't want to pretend to be an expert on the topic of writing compilers, since I only ever wrote two, both under the watchful obsession of a professor, and my lex and parse code were not optimal in either case. In general, they were some of the easiest pieces of large code I ever wrote because

The fix is probably as easy as exposing the list type to LCS. Mark mentioned that at the last LCG last year. Since the parser already uses the list type and the engine has a list type internally it shouldn’t be that hard. On Thu, Mar 29, 2018 at 5:34 PM Mark Wieder via use-livecode <

Why do you want to blur text? I can’t stand blurry things, they always make me think there is something wrong with my eyes! (Unless of course that is the purpose of the blurry text.) ;-) Rick > On Mar 29, 2018, at 11:35 AM, David V Glasgow via use-livecode >

Since you already have code in place to use your homegrown selection handles, can you adjust things so that the line doesn't actually have to be "selected" to make changes? My guess is that the small button you implemented can be dragged, and then you do your magic and adjust length while
