Ah, I don't blame you.  Thanks for considering, though!

I do have a suggestion, though.
What if you don't want a hotkey for the profile?  I think there should be an option for "none" in the hotkey editor.

Also, if you click on the hotkey column and push F2, I think it should open the hotkey editor.

Another idea; I would want to see a place for a description for the profile.  Maybe a third column in the profile listview or better, an edit panel that changed depending on which profile you click on.

One more - another column in the action listview for description.

I always forget what things were for or why I set them up in the first place.

Jody, with regards to the checkboxes:
The launch log is good for immediate perusal and report on how the execution progressed;
The state of the checkboxes would be saved to the settings file so when you close the program and reopen it, you can see which tasks have been completed.  It would make splat into sort of an executable todo list.

You see, if I am provisioning a computer (and were to use splat) for example, I have to restart the machine several times.  I would use splat to run scripts and commands and such, and the checkbox state would let me keep track of whether I've completed the task or not - after I restart the computer.

Jody, I made a similar program in autohotkey to use for provisioning computers.

In my program I have a tree, with lots of nodes.  Each node was kind of like what you call a profile - and each node had its subnodes - like your "actions".
So I could manually execute each action and after it finished, it would mark true a checkbox that was next to the item.
When all the actions were complete, the checkbox next to the node (your "profile") would be checked.

I spent too much time on it already, and it was designed just for this particular use of mine, so it's not something I could really share.  But I can share a little picture!


So, what about adding checkboxes to splat?

Hey!  What about Fungus?
5  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Single Left-Click to Open Editor on: January 01, 2015, 11:58:22 AM
I am dreaming of being able to single-left click on the tray icon to open the editor (with my last capture).  Right now I have to double-click, and I have to remember that it works that way.  Single-click doesn't do anything.

In Options > The Basics > Hotkeys and Shortcuts, there is a setting for setting single-click on tray icon to CAPTURE.  But I have it set to not assigned because I don't want to capture on tray-icon click.

Okay, so I'm finicky.

Feature Request:  Option to assign what single-click on tray icon does - with setting for "open editor".

Jody - no problem.  Hey - I just looked at your ICQ profile (just make sure I remembered correctly that your name was Jody) - you are exactly 4 days older than me - same month; same year! 

No worries for imgur - and beggars like me can't be demanders.  Thanks for the reply.

8  DonationCoder.com Software / N.A.N.Y. 2015 / NANY Entry: Ballistic: an easy list filter on: December 18, 2014, 03:22:49 PM
NANY 2015 Entry Information

Application Name Ballistic
Version 1.1
Short Description A word finder and filter
Supported OSes Windows 7
Web Page Documentation pages with screenshots
Download Link Download Ballistic
System Requirements Only works on Windows
Version History
Author Link to Author's Profile page on Stack Exchange

This program was designed to aid in making word puzzles.  The authour publishes a childrens' magazine, and Ballistic helps in making custom crosswords, word searches and other word games.
You can use the pre-made wordlists or even a custom wordlist, and easily filter the list to match certain criteria.  It doesn't generate puzzles or games, but you can use it to find words that will fit in your puzzles.  You can easily find a word that matches any pattern.

I made this program for myself and have hosted it for a few people, but it has never been officially released.  This is my first public mention of the program.

•Use any wordlist (simple text files)
•Comes with a collection of pre-made lists
•Reports the number of Matches
•Wildcard Matching
•Typoglycemic matches
•Export Results
•Copy Results to the Clipboard
•Quick List-switching menu
•Quickly open the list in current text editor
•Full-featured GUI with lots of options

Planned Features
Update the word lists
Fix bugs
Maybe create an installer.

Please visit the documentation page for more images

Just extract the zip file to a folder and run the exectuable.
There isn't any installer at this time.

Using the Application
A brief description of how a user will use the Application. What tips does a user need to get going?

Just exit the application and delete all the files.

The searches are faster if you disable the progressbar.
But the progressbar is fun.

Known Issues
Typoglycemiacize List is really slow for long lists.
If you stop the typoglycemiacize process midterm it won't save.  I can fix that.

I want to use this program to send screenshots from ScreenshotCaptor.

I am not sure what settings I need for the anonymous API (I wish it would use my account though).

Application Name:  sImgurUploader
Authorization Type:  Anonymous usage without user authourization
Authorization callback URL:   ??????  What do I put here?

Sorry - I didn't see the tail of this thread where folks asked this question already....

Skwire, there are a lot of settings there for imgur - is it still necessary to use anonymous mode?
12  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: How to upload to imagur.com via hotkey on: December 05, 2014, 07:39:32 PM
Thanks - I already configured SC for uploading to imagur - I just couldn't figure out how to send anything that way.

BUT - thanks for the link for sImgurUploader !  I like that.
13  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / How to upload to imagur.com via hotkey on: December 05, 2014, 03:26:00 PM
How can I do this?

I want to use a hotkey to take a screenshot and then upload the file via email to imagur.com
There's no option for imagur in "Online Uploading"

But thre is an "Email SendTo List" which can be configured to send an email with screenshot attachment.  Problem is that I can't figure out how to make SC send it.

Thank you, Skwire!
15  DonationCoder.com Software / Skwire Empire / Re: (Pre) Release: sChecklist on: November 26, 2014, 04:25:33 PM
I'm using Skwire's latest version (that he made just for me!): v1.0.9 build 1
16  DonationCoder.com Software / Skwire Empire / Re: (Pre) Release: sChecklist on: November 26, 2014, 03:58:53 PM
tomos - it does work the list entries, but not with the checklists (I tried that already)
17  DonationCoder.com Software / Skwire Empire / Re: (Pre) Release: sChecklist on: November 26, 2014, 11:44:51 AM
Skwire,  I can't figure out how to move checklists up and down in the panel.
I thought if I clicked a checklist to select it that I could then use the regular up and down arrows to move it, but that didn't work.  So I guess you can't use the sorting functions on the checklist listview.
I suppose I *could* rearrange it by editing the data file...
18  DonationCoder.com Software / Skwire Empire / Re: (Pre) Release: sChecklist on: November 21, 2014, 03:33:10 PM
Thank you, Skwire!  Works like a charm.
19  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Error Capturing Image on: November 21, 2014, 11:32:52 AM
I fixed this by unchecking this option in the Miscellaneous Settings:
Check for all white/black captures, suggesting security app interference.

Apparently that feature doesn't check for black and white!
20  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Hold shift to draw selection locks proportion on: November 21, 2014, 11:19:49 AM
A nice feature might be that after you push printscreen and start drawing a selection that if you hold SHIFT, it could lock the selection to SQUARE.  Kind of like in Photoshop.
21  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Error Capturing Image on: November 21, 2014, 11:18:22 AM
Oooh.  I just tried to take a screenshot of the zoom box in ColorMania 5.0 and SC didn't like that!
It gave me an error (I'd post a screenshot, but SC won't take it since it is it's own error box)
Error Capturing Image
ERROR: No content was found in the captured image.
This can happen if you have installed a security application that is blocking Screenshot Captor from functioning.
To solve this problem, you may need to add Screenshot Captor to the list of trusted/allowed programs in your security application.
For additional information see the help file or visit the DonationCoder.com forum.
If you were intentionally capturing a blank image, disable this check on the Miscelaneous Tweaks tab of options.

So, I can take a screenshot of the application window, and I can draw a selection over the controls.  But it errors when I attempt to draw a selection over the color boxes:



Actually, the problem is that SC won't take a screenshot of an image that is just one colour.
I'm trying to make 16x16 square blocks of solid colour from screenshots.
So I tried to do that in another program and it won't work there either.
22  DonationCoder.com Software / Skwire Empire / Re: (Pre) Release: sChecklist on: November 20, 2014, 02:54:16 PM
Also, I notice that "sort checked to bottom" also sorts the list alphabetically.
That is not what I expected - I expected it not to rearrange all my carefully organized list but to just moved the checked items to the bottom.  There is "sort alphabetically" if I wanted automatic sorting.
23  DonationCoder.com Software / Skwire Empire / Re: (Pre) Release: sChecklist on: November 20, 2014, 02:46:23 PM
Say, Skwire, in the screenshot at the top, you have the sort-checked-to-top and sort-checked-to-bottom buttons in your toolbar.  How can I have that?  My commands are trapped inside a dropdown-menu-button.
24  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: SC post-capture run on: November 14, 2014, 05:00:42 PM
True, a startup manager is a workaround.
Anyway, I'm happy using the batch file.
Thanks y'all!
25  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: SC post-capture run on: November 14, 2014, 11:15:19 AM
That sounds like a good, reasonable solution.  I'm surprised I didn't think of it.   Wink
