Hi Alex, what sequence are you trying to do that won’t work? If you tab into a field and then cmd-arrow (right or left) I think it restores the “selection” behavior you are looking for ie. you can then shift-cmd-right or left to select the chars. Would that be a work-around? > On May 11, 2021,

You can put an SVG Icon or a graphic image into a DG column, would either of those work? Then you just need to script the behaviour of the widget or graphic when it’s tapped on. I do something similar with check and uncheck SVG icons. > On Apr 29, 2021, at 8:23 PM, Mike Kerner via use-livecode
