Aha: so the 'Tip' now needs to be removed.

I wonder exactly WHY the thing was changed?

 From the point of view of teaching & writing a book on Livecode, a 
Language-cum-IDE that keeps changing features like that
(especially if those changes are left for folk to stumble on, rather 
than documenting them in LARGE, RED letters) is going to
be seen as a pain-in-the-B.

Certainly, it would be VERY NICE indeed if the "good folks" at RunRev 
could put together a COMPREHENSIVE list of changes
(i.e. not just the fancy, eye-catching ones they use for marketting) 
post version 7 so that people like myself, who haven't
got all the time in the world for messing around with Livecode on the 
off-chance that well stumble upon some new, undocumented
change, can plan our Summer courses properly so we don't end up with egg 
all over our faces come July.
