I should mention I am still using 9.0.1 RC1 because a hotfix for nesting datagrid behaviors is in place and I need that. Not sure that fix is in place for the gold repo. Bob S > On Sep 26, 2018, at 09:49 , Bob Sneidar via use-livecode > wrote: > > On the topic of the SE acting up, I seem

I´ve seen this line number weirdness, too, but not just with 9.0.1. I´ve seen this in all LC 9 if i remember right. But now slowness. Here it happens when debug mode is on and breakpoints are set or if the script execution aborts due to an error, like Ralph wrote. Closing and reopening the SE

On the topic of the SE acting up, I seem to have also produced the effect where scrolling is not updating the line numbers properly. Anyone havin slow script editor issues check to see that the line numbers are in sync. It may be related. Bob S > On Sep 26, 2018, at 09:17 , Tom Glod via
