Humph: when I was 32 and using a Mac Performa 475 SuperPaint was a "not so super" program for doing things that by today's standards look largely like a complete and utter waste of time. I don't know what the new "SVG" thang should called, and I am slobbering in excitement at the thought of

I'm using LC 9.0.0-dp10 on a Mac to develop an app for an Android/Amazon Fire 7 tablet (FireOS 5.1.x). As the app launches it prompts the user to select a set of files from the microSD card plugged into the tablet. The selected set of files are copied to the specialFolderPath("documents") area.

That is true. However, just adding the single command "lock screen" before the "go card xyz" removes the problem. I have tried to understand what could be "illegal" in the target device point of view in the script code following, but so far haven't figured it out. Actually the script runs
