@Ath - thanks for the tip! Probably saw it before but didn't dawn on me.

@anandcoral - ya, it seemed like they were growing from day to day.

Can someone enlighten me on the difference between Mozilla Corporation and Mozilla Foundation?
One makes money bit time while the other doesn't.
What does the one that makes money do with it all (some 400 million/year)?
If they spend most on sending it to the not-for-profit one, why bother users with these nagging ads?

I get the picture mouser.

Maybe... picking up where a few of the long-trusted and used Firefox legacy extensions left off would be an easier challenge?
Autohide bookmark toolbar, scroll through open tabs with middle 'mouser'  :P, FTDark theme to name a few appreciated features of old that'll never come back?.
Bye bye 2017!

Sometimes we just don't realize the amplitude of some requests we make...  :(
Maybe it was a bit of disgruntle with regards to Firefox moves as of the last few years that have surfaced at initiating this thread.

With regards to Mozilla: (correct me if i'm wrong) you have the Foundation (not for profit) and the Corporation (multi-million dollar business around $400 if i'm not mistaken).
So, i'm kind of weary as to just how much Mozilla really needs in funding.

Linux distros are plentiful and you wonder why the devs don't merge their efforts to improve on the top 20 ones.
Perhaps it's because there will always be a niche for something better?

Indeed!

Who knows, perhaps one of these alternatives could make it big someday.

@Stephen6615 - with so many frustrated Firefox users and little alternatives to go to (Chrome and clones)... perhaps the time has come for something different?

With all the decent coders here (many of whom are doing some good, honest, free-will work) could we not come up with a viable alternative to present browsers?
I'm sure plenty of donations would come in to encourage this kind of venue and who knows just how far the project could go and be of benefit to all.

A 2018 N.A.N.O. project maybe?

Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year to all!

Got it!
Thanks again!

You're a good tutor IainB!  :Thmbsup:

Seems like i'm missing something in my version of ON 2016:

@IainB,

Silly me, can't find option (desktop 2016 or Android) to have ON search within scanned items by default.
Always thought it was a good thing if they could do that but never saw that option.
I'm blind!

Will find it...


11
It works IanB, thank you!

12
Btw, if someone is familiar with OneNote for Android...
Is there a way to scan two pages at once (booklet)?
So far, i can only scan one at a time.

13
Not a problem Ian!
Figured if Ian "the wizard" didn't know, nobody would.  ;)

Oh boy!
Wasn't really expecting this feedback for sure!
Will try to express it to the best of my abilities.

Anyway, with PPLandry (convenience wise) we did a Google Hangout while working it out on a Google Spreadsheet.
As you can see from this link, the project no longer has 14 tabs but only 2 now.
The second tab (monthview) can be obtained in a different way from the data one.
While in data tab, clicking on "data", then "filter" has many different options to choose from.
Seeing that i imported the working file into Microsoft Excel, i've discovered a few things and a few glitches to iron out.
PPLandry was kind enough to let me know that i can reach out to him again when needed.
So that is a huge plus.
Will try to iron out all the bugs before then.

Just to openly express my gratitude to PPLandry.  :Thmbsup:
He has graciously offered some of his precious time and talent to offer a pleasant, simplified and most viable alternative to what i have been doing so far.

A pastor was busy tidying up in his private room on the second floor of the rectory of small country parish one day...
The phone rang loudly in his office on the first floor (no cell phones or portable ones in those days).
Mrs. Ouimet, the native French speaking house cleaning lady quickly ran over to answer the phone.
"Allo!"
"May i have a word with Father Bob?" -asked the caller.
"Juste un instant, he's busy, he's up on top of me!" -she replied in her best English.

I'm open to suggestions Pierre.
This file is, however, the result of many hours of work with a friend who knows so much more about Excel than little ol' me.
That person has helped me in so many ways and when you find someone like that, it's not easy to go to someone else who might help you today and be gone tomorrow.

Thank you Pierre.

A simple point here (i hope)...
The "reserve to start with" tab has items to be assigned/transferred to the months of the year.
Once the date assigned, they are manually copy/pasted to their respective months.
The next step is to clear those assigned from the "reserve", thus leaving empty spaces/lines.
In order to fill the empty spaces, so far, all i can do is to manually copy/paste up the remaining to be assigned.
What would be helpful is to have these automatically be "upped".
If the ones that are finally assigned could be transferred automatically to their respective months, then maybe that would facilitate the "upping" of those waiting to be assigned in the "reserve" tab?
