formatForPrinting

2018-04-06 Thread Knapp Martin via use-livecode
With regard to formatForPrinting for Windows, the dictionary says to set the property *before* you open the stack. I'm probably just being thick, but how do you set the property of a stack that is not open? Does this really mean to set it to true, save it, close it and then reopen it in order

Re: formatForPrinting

I am intrigued as well. The dictionary is quite clear. Set this property before it ever is in memory. Does the engine store properties just in case a stack of the appropriate name opens? Are there other such properties? The dictionary states that this property can be cleared if text is to be

Tom, I just captured the relevant dialogs and Windows on my Mac. Never owned a Commodore, but did write some machine language for a radio shack model 100 once in the distant past. I was sooo (naively) trusting of the perfection of lc9 that it took me way too long to try the build on lc8.2.

Found solution: Don’t use LC 9.0.0. When I add more than one “.livecode” stack in the “Stacks” list, I get the errors referred to in the original posting However, when I use LC 8.2.0 (DP 2), I get a standalone. No errors. I’ll see if I can make a sample stack and report this as a bug. Best, Bill
