1  DonationCoder.com Software / LaunchBar Commander / Re: Didn't I used to be able to... on: February 22, 2015, 09:28:03 AM
I confess that I don't use the LBC toolbar, preferring to have just the dock icon in my system tray.  However, since I'm using Windows7 and Malwarebytes Pro (and LBC 1.144.02), I thought I'd try to see what happens on my system.  I put up the toolbar, then dragged a shortcut from my desktop to a section of the toolbar.  A message popped up asking "Copy shortcut properties (default) or link to shortcut?"  I chose copy shortcut properties, whereupon I got an error message saying "Access violation at address 0076BC7B in 'LaunchBar Commander.exe.'  Read of address 00194000."  I have no idea whether any of this is useful, but....

Mouser, thanks so much for your extraordinarily fast attention to all this.  I'm delighted to report that the sync is now working.  I didn't even have to go into my Dropbox folder to confirm this.  I changed one small entry in WhenLast (which may have been all that it took--I didn't think I had to do that because I had changed another entry on the tablet yesterday), and all worked well.  When I clicked on Sync online now on my phone, it told me that it had synced with my tablet, and indeed, the entry that I had just made on the tablet was indeed also on the phone, as was the one from yesterday.   Thmbsup

After reading your most recent messages, I upgraded my tablet's WhenLast to 1.49 and clicked on the (new?)  Sync online now option. A message appeared saying "Status report: Dropbox sync is active and idle."  I tried again--same story.  I then went into my Dropbox folder to see if anything had changed. I clicked on the Apps folder and then on the WhenLast folder inside it. The folder was empty. 

I went back to WhenLast and tried again.  Same story,  except I no longer got a "Status report" message. At no point did WhenLast stop, as it frequently did last night.

Mouser, I updated to version 1.45 and tried again to sync with Dropbox.  This time, it seemed at first to work.  I clicked on Allow, and I was told that the first sync may take some time.  I waited a while, but nothing seemed to happen.  When I went to the Dropbox folder on my tablet, there was now an Apps folder, and inside the Apps folder was a WhenLast folder, but it was empty.  And now WhenLast seems not to be working at all well.  Most of the time, when I click on it, I'm told WhenLast has stopped.  The first or second time it did this, I chose the option to report this.  However, it continues to happen most of the time.  I tried rebooting the tablet, but that didn't help.  Every now and then I'll get the WhenLast main screen, but when I try to sync with Dropbox, WhenLast stops working.  Mostly, though, I don't even get this far.  When I click on the WhenLast icon, I'm told the program has stopped.

Beta version is up with sync-support.
Mouser, I downloaded the Dropbox app for Android from the Play Store onto my tablet and my phone and set up a free Dropbox account.   I then indicated in WhenLast (v. 1.41) on both my tablet and my phone that I wanted to sync via dropbox.  A box popped up asking Ready to Link to Your Dropbox Account?  I said yes, and I then clicked on Allow.  Alas, an Error message appeared saying "Only a limited set of users can receive access tokens while this app is in development mode."  I tried again, and got the same message. Sad   ???

I'm looking at dropbox sync api and adding support for automatic sync'ing across apps.
Sounds appealing.  I don't currently have a dropbox account, but if/when you add a sync capability using dropbox, perhaps I'll get myself a free account and try it out.

Arrgh, why can't I delete my own messages??  I obviously wanted to post only one message, the one right before this one.  I apparently hit some wrong button, and trying to deal with that only made it worse.   Sad

Great.  From now on, I'll know not to create the same entry separately in both devices.  There will be no need to do so, since export and import work well.  thumbs up

1) I imported the same data again, and as I expected, there were no duplicates. 

2) I then changed the time on one entry and also added a new entry on the tablet, exported the data file to the computer, and then imported it into the phone--no duplicates.  The changed entry was updated appropriately and the new entry was added. 

3) However, as you suspected, creating entries separately in the two devices causes duplication.  I had set up the entries separately when I first installed WhenLast on my phone.  That apparently resulted in the duplication I saw when I imported the tablet's data into the phone for the first time.  To be sure that was what did it, I now created a new entry in the tablet and clicked on NOW to give it a date.   I then created the same new entry on the phone but did not give it any time.  I then exported from the tablet and imported into the phone again.  Sure enough, the entry that I had created separately was duplicated--once with no time, once with the time from the tablet's entry.

Hope this helps.

Mouser, you are amazing!  Thanks very much for answering my questions so promptly and helpfully, and then for creating a new version of WhenLast that incorporates some of the features I asked about.  Thmbsup

There was one glitch when I did the export/import procedure.  I exported the data file to my computer and then imported it to my phone.  All worked well, except that I now had two entries for each item--one that said Never for each (since I installed WhenLast on my phone a day or so ago and added the entries I wanted but didn't put any dates in), and one that contained the correct imported information for each entry.  I was able to delete the entries that had no dates, so all is now well, but I'm wondering whether the duplication will happen again the next time I import.

I just added WhenLast to my new smartphone, and the process of installing it brought to mind several questions/issues:

1) Is there a way to delete all your examples at once, rather than having to delete them one by one?  My categories were sufficiently different from yours that I preferred to start from scratch.  I first tried to delete the categories, hoping that that would also zap the items inside them.  That didn't work.  So I then deleted each item and then tried to delete the category.  That seemed to be successful, in that I was asked whether I wanted to delete the category, but although I said OK, the categories kept appearing.   Eventually they did disappear.

2) Is there a way to manually enter a date when something was done and have that date be visible until the next time?  For example, if I made an image backup on December 21, 2014 (before I had WhenLast) and not since then, I'd like to be able to have WhenLast show the December 21, 2014 date.  I found I could write in a date, but it wouldn't be visible on the main screen.

3) Is there a way to synchronize WhenLast on two (or more) devices?  I now have it on my Nexus 7 tablet and my smartphone.  I tried to find a file or files that I could copy from my device to my computer and then from my computer to the other device, but I couldn't find it/them.

I'm very happy with WhenLast and would recommend it highly as it is. Thmbsup  The above are just a few points that might make the app even better.

Debian, thanks for posting this.  I too purchased TextMaker for Android a while ago, and the advice is if you've got a purchased version, stay with it.  That's why I didn't go for the free offer.  But if the pieces are available separately, I'll definitely add PlanMaker.  (I'm less interested in Presentations.)

I was very hopeful about UltraFinder, since UltraEdit has been my favorite text editor for many years.  So when UltraFinder came out, I gave it a try.  I found it surprisingly disappointing.  It failed to find any number of things that File Locator Pro found.  I finally gave up on UltraFinder.  It may have gotten better since then, but I'm not interested in spending more time with it.  As for Archivarius, I bought it years ago on the strength of very positive comments here and elsewhere, but I never got it to work well.  It always seemed to me rather cumbersome.  I finally stopped using it, and I haven't installed it on my present computers. 
14  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What is the currently best Desktop Search software? on: January 10, 2015, 09:58:46 AM
I second 40hz's recommendation of Everything Search. I use it all the time.  It's terrific as long as you know all or part of the filename.  But it doesn't look inside files.  When I know something about the content, or perhaps even just when the file was made, the program I turn to is File Locator Pro.  It has never failed me.  Though it's not free, the company also makes a free version called Agent Ransack, which is also quite good (it's also called File Locator Lite, since some people and companies are apparently reluctant to try a program called Agent Ransack  smiley ).  You can find a comparison of the commercial and free version here.

One advantage/disadvantage of these programs is that they don't index your files...they search each time.  This means that the search is usually slower than a program that indexes, but it also means that the program isn't using your computer's resources all the time as it indexes AND it means that even if you haven't indexed in a while, you can still find any file, no matter how recent.

Many thanks, Deozaan, for this suggestion.  I think it worked!  Play Store did take my money, and it hasn't refunded it, in spite of a notification appearing on my app saying that I already had When Last installed.  With any luck, I'll now get notified and updated via Play Store, and mouser will be able to plan a vacation with the extra $.99.    Win-win smiley

Thanks, mouser, for your prompt and helpful reply.  I don't have root, so I'll simply wait until you've got an import/export function working.  I'm in no hurry.  I very much appreciate your willingness to keep working on this.  thumbs up

Mouser, I've now installed the most recent version of When Last, but it seems clear that Play Store will not inform me about updates.  I'd be happy to be the last of the big-time spenders and buy a copy from Play Store, but I'd prefer not to lose the info I've already put in When Last.  Is there a way of uninstalling my present copy but keeping my current settings and info?  If not, I'll just start from scratch--it's not as if I've got months of data in it  smiley .  But before doing that, I thought I'd ask whether there's a way of avoiding doing that.  

(Another advantage to buying it from Play Store is that I may eventually be able to post a glowing review.  I say "eventually" because I've bought all my apps from my primary Gmail account but my Google+ membership is under a secondary Gmail account.  Apparently I now have to be a Google+ member to post reviews, but I also have to be recognized as the owner of the app, and Play Store refuses to recognize my secondary Gmail account as the "owner's" account, even though I have both accounts on my Android tablet.  Once I get that sorted out, I'll be happy to post a review.)

Mouser, I'd be pleased to be notified of updates by Google Play Store, and I certainly have no objection to paying $.99 for the app.  However, when I went to Play Store and did a search for When Last, it didn't appear until #29 (even though no other app before it had that title), and it said nothing about $.99.  Indeed, it apparently recognized that I already have the app installed, since the options it offered me were Uninstall and Open, not Install or Update.  I checked and I have version 1.12 installed, and the one in Play Store is 1.13, so it should have offered the Update option.  Just thought you should know.

I won't install it when it's still in beta, so at this price I didn't test it, but purchased 2 lifetime licenses right away. Fantastic offer!
Curt, like you I prefer to wait until a program is out of beta before using it.  I bought a lifetime license for WinPrivacy both because the price was so reasonable and to support the guy who has taken over from BillP.  I was very pleased when I got an email with my registration info and the following statement:
Below is your registration name and code for WinPrivacy. Please retain this for future use.
You will receive an email with each release of a WinPrivacy public beta, feel free to install it.
In addition, you will receive an email when WinPrivacy goes live if you'd rather wait for the shipping product.

Looks like BillP found the right guy to carry on.   Thmbsup

I just came upon this thread, decided When Last was just what I needed, and downloaded and installed it on my Nexus 7 (2013) tablet.  I'm impressed with how simple it is to use, assuming I remember to do so.  I guess it doesn't make sense to add a Check When Last item  Wink .

I did have one question.  After making two categories (Home, Computers), and saying that I wanted ALL to show, what I saw were those categories, but over the first one, completely in caps, was OTHER.  I couldn't decide where that was nor what it referred to.  I got rid of it by re-checking Hide Empty Sections.  But is it an empty section?  If so, how can I find it and get rid of it?

Also, is there a way to order the sections?  I have a hopelessly alphabetical mind.  Hence, I'd ideally like Computers to come before Home.  Is that possible?  Ideally, for both categories and items within a category.

Many thanks, mouser.  I'm delighted to have this.

Ah, that explains it.  Thanks for the info.
