When I set up a gettext gadget I would expect that the entry box would already be open ready for me to type in. But in fact I have to click to open the text entry field before I can type in it. A minor annoyance, but an annoyance.
This used to work in previous versions of OS X, but Apple made a change and it doesn’t work any more. I cannot find any Apple documentation that indicates why this has changed, or how to control this behavior.
You might want to look at this topic: An experimental GetTextSheet procedure
I have installed gettextsheet as a custom statement, and it works the way we want it.
Thanks, Bruce (and Gary and Jim), I’ll try it out tomorrow.
I wonder if gettextsheet could be rewritten so it is a separate dialog box to substitute for the code for gettext, so that it works properly.
