you're right in that I am between two chairs. I bought it to see what it all was about - the trial from the homepage said "trial has expired" already at first launch - and now I don't know what to do with it. I am not going to translate a book, or anything similar...

I don't think any of the advertising text were written by the original software author. I am guessing, he authored the app and went away. Now someone else is trying to make money out of it.
-Me, guessing

the Bits du Jour offer has been taken down (because of the soft112 price, I think), but is up again, now.

what's the fuss about? The program has not been updated for at least 4 maybe 6 years. Forget it!

Also, in it's own tiny (microscopic) field it is a fine program, doing the job well. Surprised? You're annoyed because the description is wrong. Understand what's about, and you will hate it less. You will of course never get to love it, but that doesn't matter too much to any one, when a program has been abandoned for that long.

The app's job is to keep sections being sections - keep sentences being sentences - not to align one line to another line. So the definition is wrong - and that is of course a problem.

Hmmm. It seems that explorestart.exe doesn't actually restart explorer (at least on my computer).
You can use this tool [Explorestart] in the following operating systems: Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows 2000, and Windows XP.

Living Room / Qoppa is not Qiqqa, but it is on sale via Bits du Jour
« on: December 04, 2018, 06:10 AM »
Every now and then I visit Bits du Jour to see if anything interesting is on sale for the day - - and today I saw that Qoppa PDF Studio Pro 2018 is on offer.

So I was planning to tell you guys, and to add a link to the thread here on DC where we previously were talking about Qoppa. We were discussing it, weren't we. Do you remember it as vivid as I do?

So I searched for that thread. Hm... no result! Odd, I specifically remember this weird name, Qoppa, yeah. Qoppa and something pdf.

So why didn't the search engine give me something adequate?! Just maybe the name Qoppa was not included, but only the application's name, PDF Studio? No, no relevant search result.

I got angry: Who authored this search engine that wouldn't give me what I wanted?!

I began scrolling very long lists of posts including words like pdf editor and related stuff - anger can give you an enormous portion of long-lasting energy!

Finally I found what I (thought I) was looking for, except,  :-[  the word was not Qoppa, but Qiqqa!  :-[ 
and it was not a pdf editor, but a pdf manager: (freeware)

This was one of the extremely few times in life that I was wishing for the automated suggestion Did you mean...?
Yes, Google, I meant Qiqqa, not Qoppa!

I am no longer angry. I am cool. However, it seems I am also old and forgetful.

All this just to say that Qoppa is a fine PDF editor, and at $51.60 the PRO is very fine priced, today. Normal price is $129, so it's 60% off

PDF Studio Available On More Platforms & Devices Than Any Other PDF Editor!


Living Room / Re: is there life without Microsoft Store?
« on: November 29, 2018, 08:15 AM »
sorry, Shades, Re-reading my initial post, I can now see that I've failed to point out that I already am using the old PhotoScape 3.7. I should also have taken more time to first realize and then to point out that PhotoScape and PhotoScape X are two quite different programs. When I started this thread, I thought X was an updated version of 3.7. Only now do I understand that PhotoScape was abandoned (not just "not updated") at version 3.7 maybe four years ago, and PhotoScape X version 1 was first launched in 2012, and version 2 was available in Mac App Store October 2013 and is now at version 2.8.3 and is available for both Windows and for Mac - but only in these disgusting Stores.

However, the two stores have now made me certain that this X is not for me.


Thank you, Tom.
You are of course already aware that Windows 10 can be set up to look exactly like an updated version of Windows 7  :up:

Living Room / is there life without Microsoft Store?
« on: November 29, 2018, 05:18 AM »
I was wondering why on earth PhotoScape never was updated. Curiosity killed the cat, but I finally dared to click the central PhotoScape button, taking me to the homepage ( I have tried a couple of times before to click it, but each time felt it had to be wrong, because it would open Internet Explorer!

This time I accepted to be taken for a ride with Internet Explorer 11, and clicked my way to the homepage of PhotoScape X:

-PhotoScape X

I have fumbled and stumbled for quite a while, (I even wrote them, but received no answer), but it looks to me as if there is no way to get PhotoScape X (for Windows) without first installing Microsoft Store and all that $#IT.

Is that right? No, of course it is not right, it is totally wrong, but I meant, is it true? Is it impossible to run a program that was designed for The Beast, eh, for The Store, if I don't have The Store on my PC? I would like to stay out of it, but I think I also would like to have a copy of PhotoScape X. Can such a program even launch without The Store?

And yes, I know, there are already several beasts by different names, on my PC, but that's another store, eh, another story.

"Share Extension" - Not sure I see the point in it.

^ of course you do. Share Extension is a Chrome name for Extension List Dumper.

Regarding version 2 replacing the now unknown version 1:

Extension List Dumper 2 .
This version "2" of Extension List Dumper was created to correct some of the problems of the original extension that is no longer updated from many years.

My use of more than one ad blocker is merely because neither is as efficient, as their marketeers would like them to appear.

"Share Extension" has been good to me (as well as any other Chrome extension) so far:

It's working okay now!

8 hours ago, it was terrible, and the problem was only with Chrome; Firefox and Edge were doing fine. Hm... could it be that it was working midst updating? But why then did it go along for maybe half an hour? Any way, as I said, it's behaving like normal now.

Google Chrome 70.0.3538.110 (on 64 bits PC) is the worst ever. Nothing is going right, everything is taking forever and then I'm told I am not even connected.
Any one else experiencing massive problems with Chrome 70.0.3538.110 ?

I get notifications on my phone from UPS, USPS, and Amazon, whenever a package is delivered.


^ you may need to read his post more closely; I believe chashnniel is saying your options takes far too much work...

I know nothing about coding, but instinctively I think your request is much too big for a person. It must be a job for the .zip authoring companies. One problem is the huge number of different extension libraries - larger companies can handle such a task, but how should a private, sparetime coder?

I am afraid the problem will be ignored, because it is too big to understand. Or how you say it.

Living Room / Re: Recommend some music videos to me!
« on: October 31, 2018, 05:21 PM »
Måneskin - Torna a casa

I was very surprised to see the Danish word Måneskin (=Moonshine) appear in an Italian music video (the letter "å" is normally not used south to Denmark)! Turns out the female bassist Victoria De Angelis' mother is Danish, so Victoria speaks Danish as well as Italian. When the boys in the band heard Victoria pronounce the word Måneskin ( https://translate.go...#da/en/m%C3%A5neskin ), they said, "Surely, that's the new name for our band!" ( https://en.wikipedia...g/wiki/M%C3%A5neskin ) Of course, no one in Italy can pronounce the name - but nowadays that doesn't seems to matter as much as it used to ( ). The group ended 2'nd in the Italian X-Factor 2017, but with a different piece of music.

Thank you, Stephen66515!  :up:

The answers made me slowly remember to install GhostScript; Now my IrfanView can also rename an open pdf file. Thank you!

so what is IrfanView doing when (on my command) it renames an open picture file?

the update panel is a bit confusing.

^ yes, it is. The author of the new version will not diminish the original author. Therefore some oddities may be found.

yes, also what I have. So, you already have the newest version. Is that a problem?
