Do you know this site?


It would really be nice if the people who like The Form Letter Machine would consider rating it and/or leaving a mini review at some of the software download sites that support this, since no one seems to be doing so and i don't think most people know about the program.

And: http://www.donationc...dex.php?topic=2547.0

I will do that  :Thmbsup:

Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: A new name
« on: September 05, 2006, 06:47 AM »
Why not combine this program "Clipboard Help+Spell" and "The Form Letter Machine" to one new program for Clipboard control and for write text blocks. New name for the new program.... Clip and Write. I have a prgram what does that, but special in TFLM are now functions  what makes it better, and I belief it will be much better.

The other commercial program.

Greetings Bob

Some more features:

  • Check for latest version.
  • Search and Replace in the Edit Tree Configuration
  • Send text to [select open application]
  • Start Word macro [name] after "Send text"
  • Possible simple calculations e.g. <<%items%*1.50>>
  • Button count words in text block


A commercial program (if you look for more option)...


i added a %CUSTOMDATE% variable in the lastest version just for you, so you can very specifically customize exactly how you want the date string displayed.

Thank you! :Thmbsup:


Found this also in the help:

%DATE%      - local date
%TIME%      - local time
%DATETIME%      - local date and time



Startup options, to start the program with a named Tree (wizard). Like TheFormLetterMachine.exe -t "MS Word Issue"

already supported, see help file for commandline parameters.

Sorry, great!


The Form Letter Machine / Feature requests for The Form Letter Machine
« on: September 04, 2006, 02:18 AM »
The Form Letter Machine is a great program.  :up: :up:  :Thmbsup:
Here are some feature requests or ideas. Some are maybe difficult to implement. I hope other people will also give there opinion on this requests/suggestions.. If extra donations are needed for this, I like to support!  :D

  • Rich text items. RTF blocks possible.
  • Pre-defined variables, like %currentdata-short%, %currentdata-long%, %currenttime% (including preferences for which date notation).
  • possible to use simple if then structure like: <<%sexe%=M,his,here>> in a text block
  • Conditional text block. If an option is selected in a previous block then this block will be shown.
  • possible to create a library of text blocks, you can use in a new tree and/or copy paste tree elements from one tree to an other tree
  • or/and possible to connect to an other group/block
  • Export a tree to XML/RSS (for building knowledge tree's)
  • Import text in a block
  • A Wizard who "step" through the Tree and give the user the option to file in the "blanks". Starts with the variables who need to be filled and then every group in a new screen.
  • Startup options, to start the program with a named Tree (wizard). Like TheFormLetterMachine.exe -t "MS Word Issue"
  • Better support for non English language
