Well tools that only do point and click are a bit of a dead loss because their authors are unable to make them fine-grained enough that end-users can tune them sufficiently to
produce anything other than clunky monsters.

Richmond.

Everything had to be achieved by placing elements and setting parameters. 
mTropolis was one of the neater tools of that type, but it would take a lot of 
logical thinking to get it to achieve things that could be done in a few lines 
of code.

It’s a good thing if a tool is a combination of visual layout and then some 
scripting. Even Xcode uses an interface builder tool.

Well, where does that put Livecode?

Or, rather, are you, Richard Gaskin, suggesting that Livecode should be 
shedding its point-and-click
heritage in favour of becoming a scripting-only language?
