Fascinating.


These two scripts do very different things. Colin, have you known about this since HC days?



on mouseup
  put the selectedLine into temp
  do "put X after" && temp
end mouseup


on mouseup
  put "X" after the selectedLine
end mouseup


And which is the selectedLine in a locked field that has no selection? Is this implied as the clickLine? Never knew that...

That wasn't what I had referred to. Lock the text of your field, and try this 
script:

on mouseup
   put "bla" after the selectedline
end mouseup


then click on line 1. Where does the text appear?
