The website for reporting bugs and enhancements is
I second you enhancement request.
Your "kludge"-solution is surely one of the best you can come up with in
Revolution. The only problem you could encounter is the case when the
text of the line contains more than one instance of the word, because
wordoffset always finds the *first* instance of the word and not
necessarily the word you clicked at.
In a related context - getting the wordnumber of a clicked-at word in a
field and at the same time hilite the clicked word - I have found the
Script of the text field:
Global gchunk, gtext
put the mousechunk into gchunk
put the mousetext into gtext
send "mouseup" to btn "wordoffset"
Script of btn "wordoffset":
Global gchunk, gtext
put fld 1 into tField
put tfield into tfield2
put word 2 of gchunk into tBegin
put "#" before char tBegin of Tfield2
put "#" before gtext
put wordoffset(gtext,tfield2) into tword
put "word" &&tword&&"in field 1" into fld "wordnumber"
set the traversalon of fld 1 to true
select word tword of fld 1
