Thanks, John, it worked. :) Thank you for the time you’ve spent on this. :)

A final observation, a trivial thing; if you don’t quit tbxeg before performing a shutdown, it leaves the app on the icon bar with the shutdown dialogue on screen.

Patched PRMs

I think I have still have the PRM CD somewhere lying around so I will have to give this a go. Thanks for making the patches available and I think GitHub is a great place to distribute this as lets not forget the rest of the developer world lives works on Git these days with GitHub being the most popular place for people sharing code.

Kind of … I mean it runs, but sometimes ^X does a paste, and I occaisionally get “Too many nested structures” at line 531 in Toolbox. I am using VNC though so I don’t know if that makes any difference.

I just tried it on RPi 5.28 and Oobi runs fine.

That is a relief. And TextArea?

Was is just as you double-clicked Oobi?

Yes. I just tried it on RPi 5.28 and Oobi runs fine.

Oobi doesn’t work :-(

Oh dear! I said it might be fragile. ;-(

I am running on a mini.m with 5.25 still. Those errors make some sense.

If others have similar problems on real hardware I will withdraw it and make a version using the original libraries. More memory, but what the h**l. ;-)
