Re: Copy files between BASIC v6 and other apps

I have managed to upload a BASIC folder to Dropbox. However, I don't seem to get the same screen as shown in the video. I don't get a Download option. In any case, the Share option in SB-6 only has the choice of saving TO the files folder, not loading FROM the Files folder. I have transferred a numb...

Re: Copy files between BASIC v6 and other apps

In the video "get from dropbox.mp4" I get the whole collection of smart BASIC files from Dropbox to the new application "BASIC".] There is no Share option in BASIC 5.8. BASIC does not show in my Files folder. How do you get it there? The Browse button in Files doesn't do anything. BASIC does not sh...

Re: Smart BASIC is discontinued

My BASIC programs don't shown up in my File Manager folder. How do you get them there? I have copied/pasted the text of a couple into the new BASIC, but it's a bit tedious for dozens of files.
Also, for some unknown reason, my iPad will not play the "how-to" video.

Re: Smart BASIC is discontinued

Glad to be notified of this update of this excellent program, although any bugs I ever came across have been fixed. I have downloaded it already. I too am awaiting word on importing programs from the old version. Copy/Paste will be very tedious for the dozens of programs I have written. Also I am al...

Re: Quote workaround.

That's even better. And then a Bluetooth keyboard works properly too. It's easy to enable & disable as required if you leave Settings open in the background. Thanks for posting this little tidbit.

Re: Quote workaround.

Thanks for posting this solution to a serious problem! Seems that this has just appeared in iOS 11. It had me worried for awhile. Press & hold is a satisfactory solution, but I don’t know if it’s documented anywhere.

Re: IOS 11

Would Google Drive work for this? It gives you 15 GB free, where Dropbox is only 5 GB. I used Google Drive for a bunch of videos that I wanted to share, as well as over 2000 old slides that I had scanned. Dropbox just wasn't enough room without paying for it.

I find it extremely difficult to find my way around this forum. There doesn't seem to be an index. Is there any Help for the forum? It took me 10 minutes to find where to start a new topic.

IOS 11

Is Smart Basic compatible with iOS 11?

Apple warns that 32 bit apps have to be updated for iOS 11. If I update to iOS 11 and Smart Basic doesn't work, there is no way to go back. I don't want to lose Smart Basic.

Help Documentation

I often find it difficult to locate a command in the Help notes because it is not always obvious which section to look in. (This is especially true when first learning Smart BASIC). For example GET, OPTION, SET appear in 4 or more different sections. Therefore I have compiled an index of commands, l...
