Why are you stuck with LiveCode 8?

1. My Indy licence lets me go on downloading commercial versions until 
it expires (sometime in 2018).

2. If this is not possible, you can, at least, download the Community 
version of later builds and
fiddle around to see what happens there.

When testing a prototype it seemed to be easy, but now there are some pitfalls I don't get over. On Mac OS X 10.11, German system, German keyboard I get with some different char the same keyname.
