Hello, Devin!
As confirmed above the International HyperCard Users Group estimated there were 10,000 active HyperCard users worldwide in 2002. Is LC anywhere near that number? Maybe. And if maybe not, why not? A truly successful LC should have been able to attract the 10,000 HC users worldwide and additionally the group of dedicated LC users. Maybe 10,000 of those too? Then we are 20,000? And if not, why not? What magic was lost along the road? HC was the winner. Where is it now? My one is in my Mac, always at hand. 10,000-1=9,999. Im still here, asking for an easier access to LC.  If the authoritative guide for converting HyperCard stacks to LiveCode still is Jacque’s tutorial at https://www.hyperactivesw.com/mctutorial/rrtutorialtoc.html, why not elaborate it to the tool, the app needed to make HC accessible "to the rest of us" again? Anybody takes the challenge?

But before that I would like to know if MacPaint works in LC. Anybody know that?

The authoritative guide for converting HyperCard stacks to LiveCode is still Jacque’s tutorial at https://www.hyperactivesw.com/mctutorial/rrtutorialtoc.html

Hello, André,
I hope you still remember that we met in Las Vegas. I still use HyperCard and wonder if it has become easier to port HC-stacks to LiveCode? Do you know if there are any apps for that? And if not, would it be difficult to write them?
Regards
Ingar

Kaveh,

I would work which lines should be shown and hidden inside a variable and then replace the whole field...

Yes Andre, that is the line that fixed it, in a split second :-)

But here is a follow-up: Now I want to hide all lines that have no text style and only show lines with colored text. I use:

repeat with i = 1 to the number of lines of fld 1
  if the textcolor of line i of fld "text" is not empty then
     set the hidden of line i of fld "text" to false
  end if
end repeat

This is taking time too. Any suggestions how to speed this up?

There is another tip here in this thread about

set the hidden of line 1 to -1 of field "the field" to false

As a single command, it might be better.

Thank you guys. I am always embarrassed to ask here as I know
the answer is
a one liner!!

And Andre the screen was locked already. :-)

I have a text field with some 3500 lines of text. I want to
ensure all
lines are visible, as I have hidden some before. I use:

repeat with i = 1 the number of lines of fld 1
   set the hidden of line i of fld 1 to false
end repeat

This is taking over 1 minute to complete. I have tried
removing all
styling
from the text so e.g. backgroundcolor is empty, etc. Same result.

Any suggestions pls?
Best

Klaus
