@nod5 I use Vis2 - a AutoHotkey script to grab a screenarea which then does the OCR using Tesseract - if you look in the bin folder you'll see the exe and language files - - I also use that exe + language file(s) in batch files and other scripts to process image files and it works well enough.

Image on text is always going to be tricky - no doubt commercial software (which I also use) is better, I mainly use Vis2 to quickly grab a few paragraphs of text from locked PDFs which I can't be bothered to unlock or those pesky websites that find it a good idea to block select/copy using javascript. It's just a hotkey away and I have the text I need, simple & fast - and free :)

So the question is how many screenshots you are going to make with text on images or complex tables? My guess is not that many for most people. So even it works 50% of the time its worth a shot.

I've had pretty good results with Tesseract actually - if you're going with the English 'fast' library data + the exe its only 7.8mb (other libraries are bigger and slower it seems but might produce better results). The tesseract.exe works just fine in 'portable' mode, no need to install it - just keep the exe + trainingdata file in the same folder. It can be slow if you feed it large image files but for screenshots it shouldn't take longer as a few seconds in my experience.

Of course the more languages you add the larger it gets and you may wish to offer some clear instructions and options to users how to add and handle them.

Just for reference and AutoHotkey users:
Asciidoctor.ahk: a small GUI app for Asciidoctor users. It will monitor the changes in the .adoc files and create/update .html ones accordingly.

Java indeed - I just checked which version I tried a few years ago - v1.36 - it worked well locally but in the end I didn't need it to have something like this - I remembered just now I had it. It is/was indeed very easy to setup - just start "scm-server.bat" and its up.

https://bitbucket.or.../default/LICENSE.txt (the source is on bitbucket, the irony)

Gittea is also very easy and cross platform but it is GIT of course

I just read that there are people working on mercurial + gitlab as a fork, discussion with links and presentation

Well you could use mercurial locally and Pijul for the public, just to make it needlessly complex :)

Re mercurial, Sourcehut - not free but cheap - also bitbucket migration script :)

How about (haven't tried it, just sounds interesting just as Darcshub)

Btw, does anyone know how to change the time of when F.lux switches between daytime and nighttime mode? I search on that site but no anser. Thanks!
Perhaps this program might be of interest as it has lots of manual and automatic options incl timers to change various settings. Quite a learning curve no doubt but perhaps worth the effort. Per monitor (if I'm not mistaken) and freeware and portable :)

Glad to hear it works for you :-)

All bundles are loaded in memory so that shouldn't matter much, depending on the context only some are shown/used in the Gui while searching so that might have an influence. Say you have a HTML bundle there no need to always show it as you only need while editing HTML files, but that bundle is loaded at startup.

I'm sure that at some point you will notice a "lag" but I doubt very much that would occur soon unless you have very large snippets (my longest snippets are about "2 or 3 pages of text" for example, my largest bundle is 3500+ items and I use about 20 bundles in total). If you put the entire New York phone book in a bundle there I'm sure it will be slow. (If I recall correctly I've done some tests with 25K snippets in a bundle and it still worked OK)

If you do tend to notice it start to slow down because you have a very large bundle(s) and/or snippet(s) you can perhaps move some snippets to text files by using the [[file=]] plugin - - that way the content is only loaded when you use that particular snippet. You can use Part2 as a description of Part1 (where you would/could use File=) -

Again, perhaps Lintalist - you can assign a hotkey OR hotstring OR search for the item you need :)

Or if you are looking for a clipboard tool with templates to store perhaps these managers will work for you

TypingAid could be useful as well, also AutoHotkey, also free.

Perhaps Lintalist ;D http://www.donationc...ex.php?topic=41475.0
(not directly suitable for typos and "one word" only replacements, but it has some nice "plugins" which may be useful for larger texts.

v1.9.8 - new FileList plugin, Choice search, Statistics, improved TitleCase, bug fixes ...

  • New: [[FileList]] plugin returns list of file names from folder - see DOC for all available options
  • New: [[Choice]] Search (filter as you type) option for Choice by adding ! similar to ? Question help/text;Allow user to resize Choice GUI; Use FontSize for Choice GUI (in the listbox) incl. Auto Center checkbox
  • New: Editor save size and position (resize by dragging window border)
  • New: Optional Statistics (see Configuration)
  • Update: Title case for selected/clipboard plugins now uses TitleCase() for more flexibility also available as seperate function (for AHK)
  • Change: LCID values for Calendar and DateTime can now be Hexidecimal values as well (L1036 and L0x040C = French)
  • bug fixes, doc update etc...

Nice - Reminds me of a program I used long ago, called gren (which was just a compiled perl script afaik).
Archived page here http://web.archive.o...karpo/gren/gren.html (from 2002)
"GREN can do all things DOS's RENAME can. However, GREN's power comes from being able to understand Perl's regular expressions (REGEXPs)."

I still have the program although I haven't used it this decade - attached for those interested as the archived download link might not work.

Don't install it in program files, it needs to be able to write to a sub folder (history and templates) - Move it to c:\portable\clcl or something like that ("Documents" should also work) - you should have a "user folder" in the old CLCL folder on your other computer so if your user name was
screenshot1  you should have "clcl\screenshot1" in there you will find

regist.dat -> templates
clcl.ini -> duh
history.dat -> clipboard history

copy those files to your new "user name folder" (close CLCL first of course).

Living Room / Re: snipping tool with image editor
« on: December 23, 2018, 08:02 AM »
I like Greenshot myself (also portable) which has a builtin editor (ShareX used to use the greenshot editor) - another option may be Snipaste (also portable) - details

If you're interested because it is/was developed in AutoHotkey, there are various clipboard managers floating around on the AHK forums, two of them listed here

Perhaps the trial reverts to "free" - don't know of course. You may try to find it on an "old download site" (not illegal or something like that but there are websites that keep archive(s) of installers of all versions of popular software. (Won't be able to recommend any in particular but Google will know no doubt)

There are quite a few free ones, a nice overview video here with pros/cons (DaVinci Resolve, HitFilm, Avid Media Composer First, Lightworks, Kdenlive, OpenShot and Shotcut - all free, non-watermarked - windows/mac/linux)

Does the Window Spy see that as a separate control? If so perhaps simply disable the mouse buttons when your mouse if over the control?
See https://autohotkey.c...ocs/commands/_If.htm for the Examples. If Lbutton/Rbutton are disabled you can't move the bars :-)

Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: autocopy function?
« on: November 02, 2018, 02:16 PM »
Just fyi and if you happen to be an AutoHotkey user (a scripting language for Windows) - there are various scripts that do that - here are some examples (incl. link to an older script) https://autohotkey.c....php?f=5&t=53867 - (as it happens a Lintalist user asked about this hence I recalled this). Using #IfWinActive and a Group you can make work in specific programs only.

Just fyi TC's Quick View can be opened in a separate Lister* window, which updates contents when going to other file. And the plugin that will show the PDF uses SumatraPDF which you can simply update by copied SumatraPDF.exe to the lister plugin folder (so you don't  have to rely on the plugin developer to keep "PDF viewing" op to date.

* Lister is name of the file viewer component of TC which is also used in regular Quick View panel.

My alternative: I use Total Commander - a shareware dual pane file manager - but there are freeware version clones (double commander, multi commander and many more) - These type of filemanagers have a "quick view" option (example https://www.ghisler....reenshots/en/02.html ) that will show the PDF (in this case) in the opposite panel - in the active panel you can now easily rename the PDF (other files) based on what you see - depending on the PDF you could even select text from the "viewing panel" and use that to rename your file.

Now you will often need to do something extra to get PDF viewing to work by installing a plugin (very easy to do) but there are many viewers for many different filetypes. (Quick)  Viewing won't lock the files and you can easily rename them.
