I just got used to the flakiness of the red dot breakpoints so adapted my workflow with workarounds to use them.
When I am debugging I want to follow through different objects that the script jumps to.  I have the red breakpoints in the different objects, i.e. Button -> group-> card-> firstLibrary stack -> second library stack.
Sometimes it works beautifully at each breakpoint the script stops. other times it doesn’t stop at all or stops only at open scripts. Also I have the problems of not being able to always delete the red dots.  In a bit more detail here is my experience.

	1. Red Dot Breakpoints don’t trigger.  Here are some situations where this happens and my workaround process.
		- If my script is not open in the editor -> Open the script
		- my script is open in the editor but not in the open tab -> Open the tab
		- my script is open (and still break points do not trigger - Double Click in the script and make sure the text cursor is flashing in the text.
		- if still does not open. -> close the script editor and open scripts again. (I haven’t really had to quit LiveCode to get them working again)

	2. Can’t delete Red Dot Breakpoints by clicking.  I am trying to  do this either while running through  a script or not. Some times it works, sometimes not.  Here are some ways I try to resolve it
		-don’t click right on the dot but just to the right over the number
		- if trying to remove breakpoint while script is running
			- don’t try to remove while script is not the line with the red dot(although it works sometimes.)
			- step forward one line and then try breakpoint again.
			- wait till script is stopped.
			- switch to other tab and back.
			- close script editor and reopen.  (I haven’t really had to quit LiveCode to get them working again)

It will be great if this can get worked out.
