1  DonationCoder.com Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: Feature request: automatic OCR of captured images. on: November 24, 2014, 02:43:07 PM
Hell yes, +1.  The only reason I keep SnagIt installed is for the "Text Grab" feature in v10. 
If CHS had OCR capabilities, it would blow that out of the water!

Different "instance" in each tab, so if one crashes, they don't all crash.

While this probably is good programming, it has tons of features and settings that I don't need, and OTOH it is not able to simply show a no frills popup next to its own tray icon, but instead puts its window all over the place on my triple monitors  Sad
I'm never really sure why, but I find sometimes certain clipboard managers give me problems, such as freezing, etc.  I have lots of 3rd party utilities running in the background, so I assume there's sometimes a conflict.  ArsClip was one of these.  Ditto too.  I'm not a programmer, but I'm guessing that lots of features = increased possibility of conflicting with other things.  The "simplest" yet stable ones I've seen are ClipX and CLCL.  I use the "stacking" feature of CHS though, and despite it's many features, it hasn't given me too many troubles..   Now if I can just get Mouser to trim down the quick popup list.   tongue

Though long abandoned, ClipX is a good light one.

Edit:  FWIW, Mouser's CHS actually IS the one I've been using for a couple of years now.  I would not be using it if I felt it was bloated.

Yea, I also make use of Tables...
I have a dashboard type of thing though that pulls from a Table, and also allows independent lookups of individual people...

There's about 1200 people in my list, so I was getting tired of scrolling the whole list.

I don't think it's possible to use Regex in formulas (only in VBA).  You can use wildcards * ? in some though.

7  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Looking for desktop calendar software that can sync with Google Calendar on: September 13, 2014, 03:39:30 PM
gSyncit does look pretty cool.

Another option worth mentioning is Pimlical.
http://www.pimlicosoftware.com/
It's a Java based app. Very capable.
There's an Android version too, though--frustratingly--it don't sync well with the Kindle Fire HD.

It has a feature-rich sync ability for Google Calendar. 
And the proceeds go to a Gorilla Conservation effort.

13  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: Android: (Wired) File Transfers from PC on: June 17, 2014, 10:20:13 AM
@CyberDiva:  Thanks for the WebDav tip.  I actually do remember reading about that in the Pimlical FAQs.  The office location I've had for the last two years doesn't have wifi  Angry so WebDav was not an option.  Looks like I'm getting moved to a more "modern" space, with wifi, though.  So in the Fall I might revisit WebDav.

Also I should add to my previous post--in case any Kindle Fire HD users read this--I actually rooted my device once.  Rooting voids the one-year warranty, so it is not advised.  I had assumed that this would allow Java to detect the KFHD, so I did it anyway, but it does NOT!  Rooting a Kindle makes no difference in this regard.  However rooting does give you access to the Google Play store which is pretty cool.  I was rooted for four or five months, then Amazon updated the Kindle OS, and the root got wiped.  I haven't gotten around to re-rooting.
14  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: Android: (Wired) File Transfers from PC on: June 12, 2014, 01:13:26 PM
I've been using DocsToGo (DataViz) with my Kindle Fire HD.  Works fine. 
The KFHD does have some MAJOR annoyances regarding file transfer.  My fave calendar app is Pimlical.  There is a Java PC version, and an Android version.  The Android version does work on the Kindle, but apparently the Kindle is totally invisible to Java (and many other Windows apps) so I cannot use the sync utility...

Also checkout a free Excel addin called ASAP-Utilities.  It lets you transpose like that.  

EDIT:  Yea, I guess ASAP won't do that.

Fooie.

I ran in to the same problem as Tomos...
Does anyone know if there is a workaround for this?

As Miles says, share some specific download links, so we can try it on our systems....

I wonder, are you saving them as .JPEG?  Try saving as .png and see if it still happens.  (I'm not an expert, but I think jpeg will "compress" your picture, whereas png is "lossless.")
18  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Feature Request: Default Style for Callouts, Repeating and Quick typing... on: February 04, 2014, 10:14:34 AM
Excellent!  Thanks for the reply.  Unchecking the "Switch to..." did the trick.  And yes, it is remembering my settings...  I'm not sure what my problem was before (?)  Just losing it I guess.   tongue

Regarding number 3. Quick Typing:  It occurs to me that I can press <Tab><Tab><Tab><Tab><Tab><Tab><Tab><Tab> and the text entry box will be highlighted...   Maybe you can just change the z-order so the text box gets highlighted first??

Here's another feature idea:  Microsoft Excel has an "auto fill" feature.    If you type
1.
then click-n-drag, you get
1.
2.
3.
4.
Automatically inserted. 

It would be clever if I could make a callout and type a "1." in it, then if I keep adding callouts, the numbers increment.


You could even have an .ini file to define lists of series to use....   Such as
A,B,C,D,E,F,G, etc
I,II,III,IV,V,VI,VII,etc

Just a thot.   Wink
19  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Feature Request: Default Style for Callouts, Repeating and Quick typing... on: February 03, 2014, 11:55:04 AM
Hi Mouser,  I hope all is well.  Sorry I haven't been on the forums much lately...  "Life" has been keeping me pretty busy.

Here are a couple feature request / ideas for Screenshot Captor.  (or maybe these are already possible?)

1.  Set default style for Arrows / Callouts:  I don't really care for the bulky red.  I'd rather If mine defaulted to a slim gray or black with smaller font in the textbox...

2. Repeating:  It would be nice if "Arrow Mode" was sticky.   i.e. So I can do multiple arrows or callouts without having to click the Arrow Icon on the Toolbar each time.  (Maybe SSC could stay in Arrow Mode until I either choose another tool, or press Esc?)

3. Quick Typing:  It would be nice if I could click-n-drag to create the arrow, then immediately start typing text to add a callout window to the arrow.  (i.e. So I don't have to click in the "Edit Arrow Text" text box each time...  The box should automatically become active after creating an arrow.)

So the work flow for creating three callouts would be:
   Press Arrow Tool Icon...
   Click-n-drag...
   Type the text...
   Click-n-drag...
   Type the text...
   Click-n-drag...
   Type the text...
   Press Esc.


Thanks for considering these smiley

21  DonationCoder.com Software / Google Boomerang / Re: Any chance for a Translator Boomerang update? on: December 18, 2013, 02:47:40 PM
i don't use google API, i fetch a normal web page query and parse the results.
Good on You!  Whether foresight, or plain old luck, TB survived where most (all?) fell into obscurity.  Not just Fried Bablefish...  There are several others out there that no longer work...
====
So I've been looking into the subject of getting Spanish characters to display correctly...  I think what needs to happen, is for you (Mouser) to let the user define which font should be used by TB.  Or rather what font get's displayed in the Debug Raw window.  Unfortunately, it occurs to me that any particular font will probably work for some languages, but not others.  Maybe the solution is to allow different fonts for be bound to different languages (?)  I dunno. 

Would also be nice if the Spanish version of the text could be included in the main output window.

Maybe like:

---------------------------------------------
This is the text I type or paste into TB. 
=================================
Este es el texto que escribir o pegar en la tuberculosis.
=================================
This is the text you type or paste in tuberculosis.

--------------------------------------------

(p.s. LOL RE the above results)
22  DonationCoder.com Software / Google Boomerang / Re: Any chance for a Translator Boomerang update? on: December 17, 2013, 12:23:39 PM
I was just playing around with TB some more...  It occurs to me that different languages yield different incorrect characters.  This suggests to me that I need to have the correct fonts loaded onto my computer....  Will try and report back. 

(Also, I still don't know why Translator B. Working at all, given the Google API issue.  Perhaps Mouser can chime in.)


23  DonationCoder.com Software / Google Boomerang / Re: Any chance for a Translator Boomerang update? on: December 16, 2013, 09:27:18 PM
Yea, I read something about that...  But TB seems to still be able to translate (?)
The above image was captured just today.
24  DonationCoder.com Software / Google Boomerang / Any chance for a Translator Boomerang update? on: December 16, 2013, 04:14:00 PM
Hi Mouser,

I hope all is well.  I was hoping there might be a chance for a feature request RE Translator Boomerang...
In addition to the humor-factor involved with boomeranging translations, this tool also helps me create phrases that are likely to translate correctly.  (i.e. if the bommeranged phrase still makes sense, then the translated version of it is more likely to make sense.  I get the translated version from the "Debug Info" tab.  As shown in the image below, some of the Spanish characters are not correct.  Can this be fixed?  Or maybe I can fix it via my computer font settings??  IDK.



Thoughts? 
Thanks.

What's that ?? 
You say the next version of ScreenshotCaptor will have full integration of OCR with its scanning technology?
