Eh ... I think this is a more useful current summary:

1. The Windows blank pasted image bug was about a data stream pointer.
Thanks to the LC Team for looking into that; hope it's merged sooner.

2. There's a crash for some copied image data. Not just MS Office.

3. Mac has image copy/paste troubles too. Also not just MS Office.
I'll report that soon, and we'll probably see improvement.

4. There are dozens of issues with copied content being converted in LC.
I'm crushing many of those with workarounds, so improvement there too!

Is copy/paste between apps effortless? No.
Do users expect it? Yes.
Even with the most popular apps? Of course!
There are problems, but also progress

I’m just excited to increase my earning potential by 15% in 6 months at the 2 
app stores, all by doing absolutely nothing myself (thanks Epic Games for 
scaring big tech!). 

After having a paid app in the stores for a few years I just released my first 
mobile project with In-app purchases this month so I plan on nudging this along 
through Bugzilla. Feel free to add yourself as a CC to the bug!

Another thing. I am not sure if your problems are also a result of the 
following, but you could giv it a try.

There was something changed in Standalonebuilder process starting  in LC 9.0 or 
so to fix a problem. But this fix could cause other problems in some situation.
While before that fix the main stacks did not receive any openstack and 
closestack messages during standalone build, now with the fixed standalone 
builder they do.
Therefore some lines of code need to be added to avoid this.

See here on page 2 for an explanation what you have to add to your openstack 
and closestack handler

Matthias,
I know, I don’t think I’m using the remote debugger. I’m building a standalone 
app for the computer I’m developing on, so I wouldn’t need the remote debugger. 
I have some code that is never called...I wonder if that could cause problems. 
Of course, that is the situation for libs, so I wouldn’t think that was a 
problem. I cleared all breakpoints using the development menu of the IDE, for 
all the stacks. It’s mystifying that all messages seem to come from the rev 
builder scripts, with no hint of what could be the problem.

Hi Bill,

i am not an expert for that kind of error message. Too much numbers i do not 
know what they mean. 
The text in the error message mentions several time revdebugger.

Are you including the RemoteDebugger to your standalone or do you have red 
breakpoints somewhere in the script which might cause this?

Sometimes it helps to close Livecode, reopen it and try to build the standalone 
again. 
But i am sure you did that already.

Re: LC Bug: Copying an Image fails

2021-03-19 Thread Bob Sneidar via use-livecode
MS Office copy operations are notoriously problematic. Microsoft maintains 
their own clipboard format, so that when switching to another product the 
clipboard must be translated. Other apps may do the same. The translation does 
not always go to plan.

A very prophetic statement; that appears to be the case on Mac.
I copy a Word image, LC "paste" is not enabled.

Thus, likely image copy/paste trouble is not limited to Windows.
(As opposed to the separate hard crash bug.)

Re: [ANN] New Book: Development Oriented Development

2021-03-19 Thread Martin Koob via use-livecode
Hi Andre

I am enjoying your new book. It demystifies for me plug-ins and how to create 
them. My mystification creates anxiety around venturing into creating a plugin 
much less adding existing plugins to my IDE and configuring them.  After 
reading the first sections of your book that anxiety is dissipating.   

You advice to look for areas of friction in your workflow really relates to an 
experience I had recently.  For a new project I had to make lots of fields with 
lots of labels and changing the text of a label takes way longer than it 
should.  Finally, after years of grumbling to myself that this should be easier 
I created a handler that I added as a behaviour to a template label field.  
Basically it allows you to set the text of a label by double clicking with the 
browse tool on a text label field and then entering the text in an answer 
dialog. I could then option drag the label field template and then change its 
text with a simple double click. As a bonus I could set it to align left by 
holding the option + double clicking the label field. 

It worked ok speeding up that task but it was a handler incorporated in a 
specific project. I thought this should be incorporated into the IDE to really 
work as I intended but I wasn’t sure how I could do that. I had thoughts of 
frontscripts or backscripts or plugins in mind but I did not know how to work 
with any of these, and, due to the mystification factor which leads to anxiety 
which prevents me from trying new approaches I didn’t go any further with that. 
 Now after reading up to page 43 of your book I think that I should be able to 
create a plugin to add this feature to mould the IDE.

Now I am starting the section “What are your needs?” Well I already have my 
need in mind — a quick and easy way to set label field text.  My goal now is to 
create a plugin that will accomplish this.   Looking forward to learning how in 
the rest of your book. 

Martin Koob.
