...Yes indeed, in the form class editor clicking on - or + works perfectly.
Thanks for the confirmation Doc.

With your install problem, it looks like you need to disable (or remove) the noobs ppa, because that's the one giving you grief.

Re: Procedure Folding broken in recent release?

Thanks Bruce & Charlie. I found it works with <shift> Click, and that <ctrl> Click also toggles +/- but brings up help on the word to the right! EDIT: Just noticed that <alt> Click does not work for me Bruce. I wonder if that is a clue? However, just clicking the + or - has worked for me forever ......

Re: Open gb.Form.Dialog maximised (full screen)

...If it's not possible then I guess I'll just have to go with a file chooser on a maximized form. Don't know if this helps, but you can make Controls expand when the mouse enters the control. As an example, open a new project and add a Splitter, put a DirChooser inside on the left and a TextArea i...

Voutt's Print Char(7) should work Using Screen.Print from gb.ncurses should work Using Bruce's Shell Beep should work ...but none of these worked for me (in the few minutes that I spent trying them) and I think it ...
