Verrrry new to TADS, so sorry if this is a “duh” question.
If I create a shelf as a Surface, I can put things on the shelf and take them off (because objInPrep is “on” etc.). All good. However, I cannot “look on shelf”. I just get “There is no on shelf here”. Huh? However, I can “look in shelf” which frankly is gibberish.
That seems like a bit of a glaring omission in TADS (v3.1.3 btw) or I’ve got the wrong end of the stick. And it’s almost certainly the latter, let’s face it.
Can anyone “turn on light bulb” for me?
