A little less busy now so I can look at my app some more. As you mat
recall I was asking about data persistence.
Thank you to the additional people who welcomed me. I contrast this
with the time I asked a question on Usenet about a scripting language I
was learning and the first reply told me
Tom, thank you for welcoming me. Much different than some online
programming groups. :-)
Brian and Tom thank you for your replies about my Android data
persistence problem. An SQLite database seems like extreme overkill but
I will give it a try if it is needed to get the app to work. Does
Thanks for the extra comments everyone. Glad my thought process was
correct, databse is overkill, saving every text change is too much,
As I said I will not be able to really do anything until next week.
Thanks for mentioning the closeField command guys. I will check it
Hello again, everyone.
Jacqueline, I enjoyed the fact you shared your story of not
conforming to gender stereotypes with your childhood interests. Find it
sad that science and engineering in general was (is?) considered a boys
Feel like I want to inject my two cents worth about
I am new to Livecode development but not computing. When I heard of
something that was inspired by Hypercard I had to know more. Used
Livecode to make a little app on my phone for work but the level of
interest this app generated now make me want to finish it, and maybe

software in dual or multiple licences. This does not affect previous
So I could make something available under a commercial and a GPL

Mike, thanks for the link to the Berners-Lee article. Could somebody
please explain to me what he is doing as described by the article
It says he is taking something decentralized like the world wide web
and is making it decentralized. I can do that. There I just did it.
Mark, I am glad I am not the only one who remembers Lee selling us
out. I do not put more validity or faith into the project because of
him. I just mentioned him because he was doing it. Still, mostly I want
to understand it. What really is it? The article just says it is to
create something we
Tom, thanks. Was not aware of IPFS. Looks interesting. When I have
more time I must read about it in detail.
Have not checked on Xanadu in a while. Little faith it will be further
along than last time I checked considering it was started before I was
born and how old I am. I do applaud it
There is no concrete reason I should be posting this off topic
question to this list but you all just seem like the sort of people who
would know how to go about a particular task I need help with. Previous
off topic posts showed good knowledge of programming ideas from non-me
My health problems have kept me from really participating on the list
for a long time but I stayed as I want to get back to using Livecode at
some point. Your question about linux distros for server use on old
hardware though is something I can comment on.
Sorry I did not post
Peter, thank you for the information about changing the scale of the
IDE user interface.
You mentioned that if I put a script somewhere to affect the IDE
stacks that it should work. I looked up the IDE stacks as per your
directions. Thanks for those.
I do not know where a good somewhere to
I do not want to be asking this as it seems like something I can
easily look up, and it is a simple thing, but I am asking because I just
could not find out on my own despite trying. Trying allot at that.
The interface for the Livecode IDE is too small on my fancy, new 4k
I felt up to trying one of the suggested workarounds for my interface
scaling issue, specifically making a script to run as a plug-in.
The plugin in does not appear on the plugins menu and I do not know
what I did wrong. The link to creating plugins was helpful, but lacked
Peter, thank you for those suggestions I will try them once my
treatment is done tomorrow.
Richard, I am using Kubunutu and KDE for some reason does not get
every app when using its interface scaling setting. It gets almost all
of them, but does not affect a few. It may be these apps are

I did as suggested but there is no persistence with the plugins
dialogue box. If there is a save, OK, or apply type functions I cannot
find them. Closing the window does not appear to save the changes as
Ralph, thank for for the specific instructions. Thanks to the others
and poking around I knew some of that, but the extra info was stuff I
needed to know.
Unfortunately, the script does not appear in the list of plugins in
the Plugin Settings dialogue. Did basic things like double check the

I selected it, set it to "LiveCode starts up" and "Invisible". Quit
the IDE and restarted it. Nothing happens.
Typing each command into the message box affects things though. I can
kind of work with doing
Could you not just deploy a Linux desktop Livecode app to a
Chromebook? ChromeOS is a Linux distribution, if admittedly a stripped
down one, after all.
You can install some regular desktop Linux software such as regular
Libre Office on Chromebooks. Some software you cannot install though
Despite using Raspberry Pi devices allot I somehow did not think of
ARM chips. I did not know Chromebooks were based on them.

Thanks for replying to my post. It seems the situation is as I thought
although making a GUI with Livecode to activate an external library is
easier than using other tools to make a GUI for an external library.
When I started this conversation I assumed I would something like that.
Comments people were making to William in the Design Question thread
have caused me to question some things and I am going to the list here
to get an answer.
Can Livecode edit existing PDF files? I would think this far beyond
its scope and just not the sort of thing it would be involved with.
