I receive a Richtext20 error is this the possible cause? In the trigger editor if I have a condition or action that i want to Edit and it has only a single digit in it (eg. Create 2 marines at location) I cant click the 2 , I have to create a whole new command. Its very frustrating. Has anybody else had this problem? I'm using the latest SCMDraft

Use the text trigger editor for now I guess, as i know nothing of this type of thing, but you can use the text trigger editor in the mean time if you must.

It seems to me that this is an issue with your computer, not with SCM Draft.

The text editor doesnt work at all for me. I dont know what the problem is. Usually on editable properties the cursor changes to a hand. When it is one digit (eg. 1 in comparison to 10) it doesnt show this select tool, its as if its just part of other text. I'm going to try to replace my system richtext20.dll with the one in the starcraft folder.

edit: actually i forgot it wont let me because it says its being used even with all programs shut down. Anybody??? PLEASE!! :(

Well... I can't remember specifically, but after you download a few things, SCMD2 should work fine. I remember having this problem when I tried using SCMD2 on my laptop.

Try installing Microsoft .Net framework 1.1:

You don't need to replace any files.

Thanks Roy but I solved it. I guess it didnt like the Riched20.dll that was packaged with scm so I replaced it with the one in my system32 folder and it works just fine! Thanks everyone for that finger pointing as well as the support :)

Oh on a side note. Who uses the text editor (as it works now) and do you find it faster/more efficient once you know all the commands?

Text triggers are for mass trigger creation via external programs like trigger duplicators.
Creating text triggers manually is a pain in the ass.

It's also useful for bugfixing / changing many similar triggers (find and replace).
But when you use it don't forget to hit the compile checkmark before closing, or all your changes will be lost.

Yea i had the same problem with the digits and i had an error message at startup. I remember i fixed it when i deleted SCMD and downloaded it again. I thougt it was my computer going nutz, and i thougt it was an issue in early versions... Anyway, you fixed it and it is all that matters!
