As my school Maths teacher said, many years ago: "You go into the house before going up the stairs."

Although, to be fair, LiveCode is a bit warped insofar as you "go into the house, and then down into the cellar."


Best, Richmond.

Now I'm unsure whether my stack's size is 360 x 592, or (width = item 3 -
item) x (height = item 4 -item 2).

Thanks.

I test my mobile stacks on a Nexus 5, and, in portrait orientation, many

Why is it cut off? And how can I avoid this? Is there an LC keyword, like
"effective" or "working", that I should be including.... if so, how?

Probably the area occupied by the status bar is pushing the stack down.
Get "the working screenrect" to find out the actual screen dimensions your
stack can use.

Since every Android device is different, it's usually easier to set the
fullscreenMode to "showAll" and let the LC engine adjust the size.
