I’ll join this chorus as well and add that LC has become what I had hoped Hypercard would become back in the day. LC is Hypercard on steroids! If your goal is to simplify LC, then do as I believe Richmond has already done, and build a simplified (limited) tool palette in LiveCode and call it RetroLC=HC.
