The Help Section looks fabulous! So nice to have that back again now with HTML.

Do have to report an issue:
When I use menu Setup > Editor Font

I am getting:
Runtime Error: The printer name is invalid OS error 16r709
see error log for more info

So where are we keeping the error log these days?

I hope it's not in App/roaming because Windows 10 tries it's hardest to make that inaccessible.



Append: So thats where all the sample files went!
I setup JB v2.0 b1 on my desktop and all the sub folders went to AppData\Roaming\JB 2.o beta 1

which is where the error log was:

Error log timestamp Thursday 11/02/17 02:32:01 AM

Runtime error: The printer name is invalid. ( OS error 16r709 )

Error(Exception)>>grinefaultAction
Error(Exception)>>activateHandler: <anUndefinedObject>

NotificationManager>>runPendingEvents
NotificationManager>>runEventLoop
Message>>laugherform
Message>>evaluate
Process>>safelyEvaluate: <aMessage>
Process>>evaluate: <aMessage>

I had to pull out my notes to another Basic ini file to find AppData\Roaming because Windows wont navigate there, you have to type it in.

I wanted to reset the font size but found that right on the tool bar so thanks for that!

I see that there is a Font Dialog as well as a Color Dialog, nice!

BTW, I am currently not using a printer.

You can navigate to the sample files. First of open explorer and key in %appdata% That is a special Windows variable that holds the directory name that Windows wishes all applications to hold their data files. The .exe files are held in a protected system directory, usually “program files x86”

Now each user gets their own appdat directory so Windows keeps each users data protected. If you try and come in from the top you won’t get in. But you can get to your own data.

Start navigating in the main directory and find User, probably C:\User Now find your name, for me C:\User\Rod Now you can go ahead and navigate the rest to
C:\Users\Rod\AppData\Roaming\Just BASIC v2.0 beta 1
and that’s where the sample files are.

I did all that once then dragged a shortcut onto my desktop so I can get to the files easily. To do this right click on the Just BASIC v2.0 beta 1 directory you see under roaming then drag to the desktop let go and select Create Shortcut.

It has an environment variable %appdata% so you need only type that into Explorer's address field (or you can use it at a command prompt). You could also create a shortcut to it (e.g. on the desktop).

Hi,

Well I did find that I could navigate to the error log from within JB's IDE (without having to type anything, as it should be IMO).

But the thing I reported IS a BUG right? Setup > Editor Font
should not throw an error. I am thinking I will want a Mono-Logue of Mono-spaced or Mono-something font in the future because it worked better in the past.

It can't possibly be throwing an error because my printer isn't on could it? I mean I want to change the Editor font not the Printer's.

The editor font printer bug was also found in the initial beta of LB 4.5.1, so Carl will be able to fix this in the same way as he did in LB.
