Object inspector question

Wprothero
Folks,
I'm getting used to the object inspector in lc8, but notice that setting the font of a field or button is different. In v7 and earlier, the drop down menu showed a long list of fonts, but the new inspector show a short list of font types (system), etc. I can type in the name of a font and it does apply that font. But, what is the intended way to set the font of an object?

Best,
Bill

Hi Bill,

Indeed the displayed font list in the PI is shorter in LC 8, but you can
scroll down this list and choose the font you wish. There is an enhancement
request to extend the height of this drop down font menu.

Best,
Panos

Hi Bill,

I was complaining about this just a few weeks ago and decided to build my own plugin which you might like to look at. I’m sure you could easily tailor to suit your needs.

I'm assuming that's on Windows or Linux, yes?  Mac always shows the full
list, but the other OSes truncate the list to be scrollable.

The number of lines visible in an option control is defined by the
menuLines property, and apparently in recent builds the PI's have
reverted to the engine default (a surprisingly low number, maybe 5?).

Font lists tend to be long so I found scrolling in such a cramped space
somewhat annoying (a sentiment I suspect the core team would share if
they spent as much time with the IDE on non-Mac systems), so I provided
a fix along with the enhancement request for a longer scrolling list:

Roger:
Not a big deal, but, FYI:
 I was messing with the “Export” command and it keeps asking for the selectedObject, which should be a field named “myText”. When that field is selected, the selectedObject is still empty. This is in debug mode in the IDE, and it behaves the same way as a plugin as a palette . Also, deleting fonts from the “favorites” field doesn’t work in LC 8.1.0.

The plugin is still useful, as it is, but I thought you might like the feedback.
Best,
Bill

Can script only stacks be used in iOS? I had some trouble getting it to recognize one. I entered it in the “Copy Files” preference, but the simulator didn’t seem to find it.

Not in this case. The PI font selector appears to be a Combo-box Menu and it only shows 5 lines on a Mac too.

On Mac:
An Option Menu, Pulldown Menu and Popup Menu all show a list as long as the screen real estate allows, but a Combo-box Menu only displays the number of lines set in the PI menuLines property.

On further investigation, type this line of code into the message box and it allows you to set your desired number of lines to display (25 in this example):

   set the menuLines of btn 1 of group 1 of cd 1 of stack "com.livecode.pi.font" to “25”

Just bear in mind that next time you launch LC it will revert back to 5 lines.

Regards,

Paul

This is one case where the Mac is in full parity with other operating
systems. On my Mac running 8.1, I get the default 5 lines in the font
list. And yeah, it really needs to be longer, I probably have a couple
of hundred fonts.

Hopefully your fix will make it into the next build. Thanks for doing that.

Yes, as Paul Hibbert reminded me, that's a combobox, not an option
control, which does indeed work the same on all three desktop platforms.

Quite happy to help.  Soon (any day now, really <g>) I'll get myself set
up with git here so I can submit actual pull requests to move those
things along even more smoothly.   So many little things crop up that
just a quick one-line fix can resolve easily.

Hi Bill,

I fixed the Add to favorites and the Delete from favorites.  it was a brain bug . . . not an LC bug. I can't duplicate the Export problem you spoke of. Import and Export work fine for me using LC 8.1.0. I will continue to investigate.

The fixed TextOmatic is here:
