What is the difference between text and string coercion?


≥ 10.5 : no difference, there is only an unique class text (UTF16)
< 10.5 : string = MacRoman, text = styled text, Unicode text = UTF16

Any further difference in ASOC coercing from text views and fields?

I don’t know, this is the AppleScript | OS X forum :wink:

Fair. Thanks.

I would always use text
