Just as you (and I) though we were done... :) I need one more twist added
to my code, and then I can actually sit down and finish translating some
30,000 words from the novel that I¹m preparing for my students.
The code, as stated before, is simple:
select the clickText
put the clickText into tClickedWord
put the cForms[tClickedWord] of this stack into fld "Translation Display"
put " " after fld "Translation Display"
put the cTranslations[tClickedWord] of this stack after fld "Translation
set the textStyle of word 1 of fld "Translation Display" to bold
set the textStyle of word 2 of fld "Translation Display" to italic
I would like to be able to add certain grammatical and stylistic
explanations which would not be linked to particular words, but rather to
some difficult phrases, metaphoric expressions etc. So, I wonder if one
could turn some chunks of text into links which would get highlighted with
mouseOver (as in Revolution Documentation) - pointing thus that there is a
note attached to that phrase (not all sentences will have them, of course)
and THEN have the link activated with a control-click or double-click
(since single click should be reserved for individual words), displaying the
note in the field ³Translation Display.²
Awaiting a kind response in fear and trepidation...
