> Why? On a LiveCode list you have to ask why? :) It was more of a rhetorical question / suggestion... Output PDF of 1-Up card pages from LiveCode and then use imposition software or a page layout app, link the layout to the LC PDF file and print, that's the way it's done by printers. And most of

I've worked in the printing industry for 30+ years now. What you're talking about is called page impositions, and it sounds like you're doing a work-and-tumble" ("the cards are now face down"), you could also do a work-and-turn instead (flip the pile on the "landscape" side, instead of portrait

Sad indeed. :-( HH's LCB snippets and examples were helpful and inspirational, and in some ways I actually enjoyed reading some of those cantankerous exchanges on bug reports. I wish he'd posted all of his LCB code as some of his more interesting to me LCB work he didn't release the source for. I

There's also this XCMD and another tool somewhere that claimed they could convert protected HC stacks to back to normal stacks but I'm not sure how effective they were (if at all): https://archive.org/details/hypercard_unprotect-xcmd On Mon, May 4, 2020 at 5:11 PM Paul McClernan wrote: > That

(Sorry, hit send too soon). You can easily use AppleScript mixed with LiveCode script to change focus to another app: *do *"tell application "& quote& "PhotoShop"& quote& " to activate"as AppleScript You could also use AppHide / AppUnhide from my LCB Library macOSTools to minimize your stack

I believe 32bit run mode was the default for earlier versions of LiveCode but 9.x is 64bit by default. I bring that up out of curiosity because I had a problem with a browser plug-in (64/32bit) running inside a LiveCode Browser widget in the past. The plugin would crash running in 64bit, sometimes

I ran into this myself recently. LiveCode sends a resizeStack message when you click the maximize "zoom box" button which you can intercept, but there's no way to verify that it was the fullscreen zoom button that generated the message. It would be nice if LC had the opposite of it's iconifyStack

Not to my knowledge, but I'm sure it's completely doable. I once created an LC script that could extract embedded JPEGs from inside PDFs. The PDF File Format docs have been made available by Adobe (back in 2011 I think). Another option would be to use Shell() function with one of the PDF
