Standalone Building

Hi all. On the issue of Standalone Building with a call to open stacks modally in a script, I noted that I can suppress messages and then build the standalone without issue. I am wondering if this doesn't cause problems for the standalone builder, why not have the standalone builder save the

Okay I found the issue with the standalone not building properly. I wrote a new handler to size a window based on the min/max left, top,right,bottoms of every visible object, so that the "air" or empty space is consistent for every stack opened. It *sorta* works, as long as the topmost and

It's strange. If you paste into excel, then select the cell and use the text to columns tool, using Space as delimiter, poof. Columns. Also, in libreoffice, paste special can be used to choose "unformatted text" and that works also. Surely there is a way to pop a simple tab delimited string into

Thanks for the responses on this. I used Bernd’s tool and did some more tests, and found some things that may be helpful to others. While the left and right margins of a field are meant literally (a 5 pixel left margin leaves 5 white pixels to the left of the text), the top margin is more

Someone asked me this and I don't have an answer: Before LC 8, you could put tabbed strings into the clipboard, paste into Excel or Google Sheets, and each tabbed item would go into a separate cell. After LC 8, the tabbed items go into a single cell as one string. How can we make Excel

Belay that. Openstack happens first no matter what. I think at this point I will use it only as a utility for resizing windows when things have been rearranged, or a new form is created and I need to clean it up a bit. Bob S > On Feb 2, 2018, at 16:11 , Bob Sneidar via use-livecode >
