I was going for PICTURE but now I think Richmond’s FRAME is better. It takes into account the newbies, encompasses the same thought process as Bernd’s BLACKBOARD and will stop Jacque killing Mark when there is no abbreviation, because BLACK is taken. Lagi On Sun, 5 Nov 2017 at 08:53, Richmond

Until now I saw it like that: , and are HTML5 tags. And and are different concepts. Roughly is more an XML-based vector graphics format, is more an API for drawing on a bitmap surface. And is a container for an image at different sizes. [And, as James says, is also a (different) HTML

@mark when possible, I think it's better to keep the vocabulary simpler or more obvious in LC. It's one of the benefits of the environment and the tool - less mental effort around the tool and the language. When possible, I think it's better to make it obvious to non-nerds, which will also mean

Hmm tricky this naming business isn’t it! My take on this is that it would be better to have a modifier for an existing control name rather than baptise a new control name to join what we already have (especially as it sounds like what Mark has done to to create a ‘superImage’ / ‘superGraphic’

FRAME would be good except it is already defined in the Livecode Dictionary as: 'One of the images in the sequence of images that makes up an animation or video.’ And there’s also framecount and framerate relating to animated GIFs. Presumably some video widgets would also refer to movie frames,

I'm not sure how the word "canvas" conjures up ideas of interactivity. Interactive words: Playground Kitchen Chalkboard Tray Not, frankly, that any of the above would do. I'm still pushing svgImage although vImage (as in Vector + Image) might not be bad. Richmond. On 11/5/17 10:49 pm,

From Wikipedia: The word "canvas" is derived from the 13th century Anglo-French canevaz and the Old French canevas. Both may be derivatives of the Vulgar Latin cannapaceus for "made of hemp," originating from the Greek κάνναβις (cannabis). So give it the synonyms hemp and cannabis -- if not joint
