I install 8.2.0 DP-1 with great excitement and anticipation.

10 minutes into using it I find it is regularly dropping keystrokes when working
in the Script Editor.

Close all other programs on the desktop, still happening.

I use a wireless keyboard keyboard, so giving LiveCode the benefit of the doubt,
put in a fresh pair of batteries. Still happening.

OK, connect my trusty Logitech USB wired keyboard and reboot Windows and start
up LiveCode 8.2.0 DP-1.

Carefully type the following in the Script Editor, using my 2 finger typing

  put 5 into item 1 of rectBuffer

Looking up from the keyboard, this is what has been added my code:

  put nto 3 ectfer

Anticipating, the chorus of "Works fine for me!" Contemplate setting up video
camera to show what is happening.

Decide that I have already wasted more than enough time this morning, and simply
feel like crying.

The End.

For anyone who cares, the script is about 7000 lines and the specs of my machine
