Yep, LC does auto-scroll when you set hilitedline! Very handy.

I would say "redundant" in this case, rather than obsolete. There is 
still value in being able to scroll a field with similar calculations.

For example, someone might want to have the hilited line in the vertical 
center of the field, or always at the top when possible. Just a matter 
of getting the calcs right. Not very difficult. But it does require a 
valid test, or valid setup, without conflating the two actions.

Klaus, let me say that your "National Socialist" approach to harassing 
me, every single chance you get, is also not funny anymore!

Nor is giving people the FALSE and fake impression that you did not get 
a product for your money. I resent that slur, along with your continued 
harassment and mean-spirited, inaccurate disinformation campaign. It is 
as fundamentally flawed as your field test code. Maybe a pattern?

FT was delivered. You got the LC 6 product you paid for. LC pulled out 
the rug shortly after; LC 7 stopped working with some existing code, and 
not the other way around. Technically 7 was supposed to work with the 
existing code, and the team was working through BC issues, but ah well. 
My flagship products were more fortunate (with a lot of help from myself 
in testing and reporting issues) but LC 7 was released before that could 
happen for FT.

Since then, WordLib and WordReport have remained higher priorities. FT 
will be revived and updated; looking forward to it very much. But that 
will be AFTER the other flagship addons are updated. Not before. 
Harassment won't change that. Nor will falsehoods or bad behavior.

(Hint: currently WordReport is first in line!)

I cleared up your little scrolling field mystery for you, and in return, 
this is how you act?! Now, let's see how logical you can be, Klaus. Take 
a good look at the length of this message. I'm keeping it as short as 
possible, but obviously it still takes some time to carefully answer 
your careless slur.

That does NOT speed up anything, including FT. But it does waste 
valuable time and slow things down. It's not furthering the outcome you 
seek. It also destroys goodwill and friendship, and it spreads 
falsehood. On top of that I'm handicapped and I don't have free time to 
waste. All bad results of these little slurs about FT and myself. I 
would appreciate polite inquiries, or reminders, but this is way out of 
line. Every time I post here, you do this. You keep calling for my 
attention, and you got it.

So, here's what I'll do. If you keep up this "National Socialist" style 
of harassment, I'll just pay a little more attention to your posts and 
correct more of the inaccurate statements that you make about LC code 
and technologies. I will also refer back to this post to save time, so 
that my corrections are as efficient as your falsehoods.

I've had to make "Klaus corrections" about other LC matters (regular LC 
how-to and facts/tips, not about FT) on a regular basis over the years, 
usually very quietly off-list! But I'll be happy to make more public 
corrections, more often, if needed. Or if you lay off the harassment, 
then as a natural result (math, time) everything will happen a little 
faster, including FT. The choice is yours. Thanks Klaus! Happy 64th
