I know that you can add a hotkey to strip/change formatting -- it explains how to use it in second shot below (dont actually use this feature myself).

Here's how you set it up:

add your hotkey
Thanks, I'll take a look into it although for some reason I had it in my head you could set rules up so that if you copied something from a specific program a specific rule would get run on the text automatically?

I'm sure this is possible using CHAS but how would I set up a rule or something so that whenever I copy anything from a cell in excel the line break that gets added automatically gets removed?

Screenshot Captor / Re: Access violation error every morning
« on: June 12, 2012, 03:44 AM »
I've been getting this issue to with my dual monitor setup at work. Some mornings when I come in it's as if my computer has forgotten it's got a second monitor attached and I have to go into screen resolution and detect the second monitor. This issue seems to have been happening for a while but I'm not sure if it's the program that's causing it or an issue with my actual pc. I rarely shutdown/reboot my pc so I might close screenshot captor when I'm done and see if that stops my forgetting monitor issue?

To answer your questions from my experience.

1. Seems to be only happening with selected region capture. I seem to be able to take full screen captures.
2. After taking a full screen capture I'm able to then use selected region capture with no problems.

I've just updated to this build and I have a small problem with it.

When I press the pause break key to bring up f&rr sometimes a random single number appears in the search field meaning I need to delete it before I can start typing.

Screenshot Captor / [feature request] fancy thumbnail templates
« on: September 27, 2006, 09:00 AM »
Would there be any way to add in something like Rumshot, basically it allows you to take screenshots and it creates a fancy thumbnail of the image.

« on: September 15, 2006, 06:53 AM »
Thanks but there not exactly what I'm looking for.

I'm not really looking for a backup program and the log monitor program is a bit overly complicated for my needs.

I knew someone out there was going to suggest something like that :)

I use opera and haven't found a download manager that integrates easily with it yet (or I should probably say that operas support for download managers is rubbish)

I'm just looking for something thats going to quickly tidy up the contents of a folder with one click or automatically that I can schedule to run one a day (or week).

Post New Requests Here / IDEA: move files to defined folders
« on: September 14, 2006, 02:58 PM »
I don't know about all of you but I have a habit of downloading lots of files to my documents then moving them to different folders depending on the extension.

I'm looking for some easy way to automatically place files into different folders depending on the file extension, I realise I could do this with a batch file but it would be a bit of a pain to easily maintain/change the file to move the files.

Anyone fancy making something or knows of anything that would easily do this.

Living Room / screenshots of my applet
« on: May 03, 2006, 06:10 AM »
I'm needing a few screenshots of my applet for an assessment for uni.

http://www.alexpater...f2s.com/co32018.html

What I need screenshots from a linux distro, from OSX and windows and different browsers.

I have the windows screenys covered myself but I need some from linux and OSX.

I'm looking for

linux
  • opera
  • firefox
  • konqeror - or default browser for distro

OSX
  • opera
  • firefox
  • safari

I need screenshots of
  • applet just loaded
  • applet part of the way through
  • applet completed (message should pop up)
  • applet when an error has occured (can't move forward, transfer petrol etc)
  • applet at start of automated solution (when dialog asks you if you want to see the solution)

Also if you want to suggest any improvements (be gentle) or problems you have it would help me out.

I need to have the url bar and title bar in the screeny (to prove that they are on different browsers and that it's online)

Could someone test the applet in opera on windows, the applet doesn't seem to load on mine.[/list]

Java / Re: java applet problems
« on: April 24, 2006, 09:23 AM »
I know but I earlier on in the applet I have set the Desert class as a super class

//sets the Desert class as the super class
public Desert() {
super();
}

and in this class doesn't everytime I have main mean that I'm telling the code to look in the Desert class for the method?

final class ControlsPanel extends JPanel implements ActionListener {
   private JButton bReset, bRules, bSolution;
   private JPanel buttonsPanel;
   private Desert main;

   // constructor
   ControlsPanel(Desert main) {
      this.main = main;

                panel code goes here

   }

   public void actionPerformed (ActionEvent e) {
      if (e.getSource() == bRules) {
         JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, main.rules(), "Rules", JOptionPane.INFORMATION_MESSAGE);
      }
      if (e.getSource() == bReset) {
         int userResponse = JOptionPane.showConfirmDialog(null, "Are you sure you want to reset?", null, JOptionPane.YES_NO_OPTION);
         if (userResponse == JOptionPane.YES_OPTION) {main.newGame();}
         if (userResponse == JOptionPane.NO_OPTION) {};
      }
      if (e.getSource() == bSolution) {
         int userResponse = JOptionPane.showConfirmDialog(null, "Are you sure you want to see the solution?", null, JOptionPane.YES_NO_OPTION);
         if (userResponse == JOptionPane.YES_OPTION) {main.solution();}
         if (userResponse == JOptionPane.NO_OPTION) {};
      }
   }
}
so using the same thinking thats what I tried to do with the Jeep class, but for some reason it doesn't seem to work in this class.

Java / Re: java applet problems
« on: April 24, 2006, 08:09 AM »
 :-[ well it used to called this.main = main but for some reason I changed al the mains to deserts (don't ask me why :)) because the gameWon() method is in the Desert class but it doesn't seem to get called.

final class Jeep {
public String name;
public int petrol, distance;
private Desert main;

protected Jeep(String jeepName) {
petrol = 0;
distance = 0;
name = jeepName;
}

private boolean canGoForward() {
if ((distance / 40) <= (petrol - 1)) {
return true;
}
else {return false;}
}

    protected boolean forward() {
        this.main = main;

        if (won()) {
            main.gameWon();
            return false;
        }
        else {
            if (canGoForward()) {
                distance += 40;
                petrol -= 1;
                return true;
            }
            else {return false;}
        }
    }

    private boolean won() {
    if (distance == 120) {
//    if (distance == (9 * 40)) {
            return true;
        }
        else {return false;}
    }

Java / java applet problems
« on: April 24, 2006, 02:06 AM »
I'm sooooo close to finishing this Java applet I'm working on. I only have three things which I'm struggling to get to work.

#1 The solution

The user presses a button and the applet should run through the solution to the puzzle. I kinda have it working in so much as the applet seems to run through the solution but the display doesn't get refreshed until the solution is finished.
public void solution() {
int solutionSteps = 9;
        for (int i = 0; i < solutionSteps; i++) {
doSolutionStep(i);
try {Thread.sleep(1500);}
catch (Exception e) {e.printStackTrace();}
}
}

public void doSolutionStep(int step) {
int y = 0, z = 0;
switch(step) {
case 1 : {
for (int i = z; i < theJeeps.length; i++) {
forward(theJeeps[i]);
try {Thread.sleep(1500);}
catch (Exception e) {e.printStackTrace();}
}
for (int x = 1; x < theJeeps.length; x++) {
theJeeps[y].transfer(theJeeps[x]);
}
home(theJeeps[y]);
y++;
z++;
break;
}
case 2 : {
for (int i = z; i < theJeeps.length; i++) {
forward(theJeeps[i]);
try {Thread.sleep(1500);}
catch (Exception e) {e.printStackTrace();}
}
for (int x = 1; x < theJeeps.length; x++) {
theJeeps[y].transfer(theJeeps[x]);
}
home(theJeeps[y]);
y++;
z++;
break;
}
I don't see why the display shouldn't get refreshed as I'm calling the forward method which refreshes the display so I assumed that everytime the forward method runs the display would get refreshed.

#2 When the user completes the puzzle it's supposed to pop up a dialog box with a congratulatory message. However I can't seem to figure out why it's not working.
    protected boolean forward() {
        this.desert = desert;

        if (won()) {
            desert.gameWon();
            return false;
        }
        else {
            if (canGoForward()) {
                distance += 40;
                petrol -= 1;
                return true;
            }
            else {return false;}
        }
    }

    private boolean won() {
        if (distance == (9 * 40)) {
            return true;
        }
        else {return false;}
    }
The IDE I'm using (eclipse) flags up the line desert.gameWon(); with the following error: The assignment to variable desert has no effect which I guess is why it's not working but I don't really understand why/how.

#3 The IDE is flagging up all the classes with the following messages: The serializable class (name of class) does not declare a static final serialVersionUID field of type long I'm not really sure what this means, it doesn't seem to be affecting the running of the applet.

I have attached a zipped copy of the applet & please be gentle with me as I'm still learning Java :D

Find And Run Robot / Re: Alias sharing
« on: March 28, 2006, 12:52 AM »
OK call me stupid but exactly how would I go about implementing these into f+rr? I know you have to go to the groups tab and create a new group but then exactly what goes where?

15
I have to mostly agree with you Josh, as of just now proxomitron is just slightly more powerful than admuncher but a hell of a lot more complicated to set up and maintain properly, admuncher (using the 4.7 beta version) does all I need just now and hopefully if Jeff gets the regexp filters into 4.8/9 and the per site filters while still keeping it just as easy to use then I'm sure glad I bought a copy when I did.

As you said free doesn't always mean better.

General Software Discussion / keyboard shortcuts
« on: March 16, 2006, 09:32 AM »
I don't know about anyone else but I hate installing the logitech drivers but I'm kinda forced to or I have a few keys on my keyboard which don't do much other than look pretty.

Does anyone know of any way (other than installing the drivers) to be able to map actions to these keys?

Can anyone actually download the file, I have tried all 3 mirrors and the file isn't on any of them.

Finished Programs / Re: caps\num lock indicator
« on: February 13, 2006, 08:45 AM »
Alexp: such utility can be done without much work, but would you like to have 3 more icons on the taskbar, or only one?
To have 3 of them, i'd have to do 3 scripts, and that would take like 9mb of memory (each script uses 3mb).
As for the f-lock keys, i think that's possible, but i'm not sure.
One icon would be best I think, something like this http://img98.imageshack.us/img98/6711/image3rf.png
(and no sniggering about my l33t paint skillz  ;D)

Finished Programs / DONE: caps\num lock indicator
« on: February 13, 2006, 06:52 AM »
It would be handy if there were a small program which resided in the sys tray and would show whether the caps lock, num lock and perhaps f-lock keys were active or not.

The keyboard I has (logitech dinovo) does not have the key indicator lights on the keyboard (the are on the hub which I would like to hide under my desk) as it uses bluetooth.

Drag&Drop Robot / Examples of use for this program?
« on: February 10, 2006, 02:01 AM »
I think this program could turn out to be very useful, however I am unsure as to what type of things I could be doing with it.

Does anyone here actually use D&DR on a regular basis and if so could you give examples of what you use it for??

Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: not starting minimized
« on: February 07, 2006, 01:57 PM »
That seems to work mouser, after closing the program from the tray the settings got saved.

Must be something like windows is ending the program before it could write the file I guess (you will probably know more than I do about things like that :))
