Using PB 5.4 Beta.

Programmed a small Print and preview routine that takes lines, text and images etc on a windows machine then moved to MAC to test. Drawing stopped each time. Problem was that the drawing functions stopped after displaying a requester either font or file.

Not a restriction more my problem in my thinking. Not many programmes ask you to choose the font for text to be printed at the time you are printing. So moved requester code to front before drawing routines.

Just a slight difference between Windows and OSX to be aware of.

Thanks all

Just another question.

Moved one of my programmes to the Mac and found that sizes of gadgets seem to be different. e.g. a spin gadget on windows displays three figures i.e. hundreds etc but the same prog on the mac shows only two. I also have scrunched up text and string gadgets.

Is there a rule of thumb for sizing gadgets so they display the same on both platforms?
