ArrayToJSON deals with JSON list differently to JSONExport. ArrayToJSON uses
mergJSON which checks if the array keys are a numeric sequence and assumes it’s
a list. There is a way to force it to be an object if required.

The benefit of doing IDE work on iron is that it avoids the temptation
to just shut the VM down
I would say that running on “iron” is probably not necessary to see this.
If you full screen the VM and actually work as if it were a physical
machine you would notice.

I had put off reporting it since I run Win only in VMs right now, and
had been thinking it
This makes me curious to know - what about apps built with LC 9 for Windows?
Are they really sluggish too? Or is it just in the IDE?

I use LC 9 on a Surface Pro 4 Machine, it is almost unusable. Everything is

Although if 'multiple desktops' (whether capitalised or not) IS treated
as a feature, then 'multiple desktops' IS singular.
If, however, one is counting multiple desktops (I have 4 on my main

someone clicks on the language
When you change an ordinary property, you set it to a new value:
set the width of btn 3 to 50.
A custom property is "filled" in the same way:
set the rawText of me to chapterOneOfDonQuixote
Custom properties are created just like variables; you just do it. Try this.

I've been using the final version of LC9 on Windows 7. I don't have these

You can conveniently:
