i had another cool feature idea: a way to mark and unmark an ahk script as one to be run on windows startup.
This would be very useful... I hope it will be implemented smiley
3  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / App launch and exit Macro on: November 11, 2008, 12:34:34 AM
Is there a tool which does the following?
1. Monitor specified applications
2. Whenever such an application is run, it executes certain commands, configured for that application
3. Similarly, executes certain configured commands, when it is closed.

I have certain add-ons, which need to be started before the parent program is started.. and closed after the parent program closes ...eg: Tidy Favorites for Firefox
(So, ideally the commands are to be executed, one after another
 ..i.e. wait for Tidy Favorites to run, and then launch Firefox
 ..because, some plugins take a long time to start)

Also, some programs add some unwanted files in folders like 'My Documents' each time they are run..
I would like to have a tool which automatically deletes such files when the program exits.

I found this tool called Stock Startup.. which can be used to batch start a set of programs
But, it does not do the waiting thing ..nor does it do anything on exit.

Pls share your views  smiley

TC is faster and better for certain tasks.  I've always thought that it had the fastest and most efficient mouse navigation setup...
Could you please elaborate?
I use Dopus, and would like to check out TC

7  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Looking for a... Word UNwrap Tool? (I don't know what to call it!) on: November 02, 2008, 09:13:35 PM
Sometime the text copied (usually from webpages) is not properly wordwrapped ..i.e. there is a paragraph break at the end of each line.
I a looking for a tool which converts such text into proper paragraphs.
Does anyone know of such a tool?
Thanks!

Not really; I need it..
> to have access to some global keyboard shortcuts, without disturbing the screensaver
> to disable (partially) keyboard and mouse, temporarily
> to avoid screensaver being stopped inadvertantly.. I use a slideshow screensaver (mentioned here) to show photos to some naughty kids who are very fond of pressing keys and moving the mouse
 Grin
This is possible with the options in Dimsaver
Also, it would be better instead, to be able to configure the exact key combination or mouse action to stop the screensaver.
9  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Prevent Screensaver from Stopping on: October 27, 2008, 01:45:12 AM
UPDATE:
I just saw similar options in Dimsaver by Skrommel, under the 'Actions' tab of it's settings.
I am looking for a similar feature for all screensavers..

Cool idea  Cool
I love the "Drag & DropZones" concept... would be very useful to have it extended system-wide
12  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / IDEA: Prevent Screensaver from Stopping on: October 25, 2008, 07:23:39 AM
I would like to prevent a screensaver from stopping, until the 'Esc' key (configurable) is pressed
i.e. no other key press or mouse movement stops the screensaver
I hope this is not difficult  Wink

I was unsure if this request needed a new post, since I saw a similar topic here:
http://www.donationcoder....m/index.php?topic=13666.0
But, finally decided to post afresh

Thanks in advance smiley

Thanks a lot, city_zen  smiley
That's exactly what I was looking for  Thmbsup
When I posted, I thought I had close to 1% chance of actually finding it.. I was just checking out my luck  tongue
You made me feel lucky  Grin
14  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Simple Image Slideshow Viewer with PAN capability on: October 24, 2008, 01:04:59 AM
For long, I have been looking for a simple tool (for Windows) which shows a slideshow of all images in a specified folder.
Also, it should have the ability to pan the images, smoothly ..i.e. the Ken Burns Effects
(actually, like the one in mac ..i think it is "iphoto")

Things Preferred:
> Option to view images in sub-folders
> Option to choose direction of pan
> Light weigth and fast
> Portable

Things I don't want / care about:
> Export capabilities (I just want a viewer)
> Image cataloging or management features
> Image Editing features
etc.. etc..

Pls share if you know of something like that Wink

Is there a tool to edit the properties or details of a font? (Like meta-data editors for images)
Actually, I want to change the 'Font Family Name' for a few fonts, but could not figure out a way to do this  Wink

Wow. I've never thought that someone had "alphabet" so similar to mine smiley The only difference was the symbols order.
 (see attachment in previous post)

Ha! Mine just goes through them A-M with no dots, then N-Z with dots. I've now added numbers and most of the symbols.
 (see attachment in previous post)

Cool! It's very exciting... Could you pls upload your font smiley
18  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Creating a document template.. on: October 03, 2008, 10:06:15 AM
Select all your document content, then right-click, and select "Update Field" and that should update everything in one step. Alternatively, close and open the document.
Works well smiley
Many Thanks!
19  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Creating a document template.. on: October 03, 2008, 08:29:24 AM
In Word 2007 it is under the "Developer" portion of the ribbon -> Controls -> Text. You could also use the legacy version of the text form field under -> Controls -> Legacy Tools -> Text Form Field
Oh! Just discovered that the "Developer" tab is not enabled by default... had to enable it through "Word Options > Popular"
Thanks for the help smiley
One question though.. After configuring the entire document, is it possible to use the "update field" command for all the fields in the document, at once?

Hello anjan_oleti,
You might also look at TheFormLetterMachine Click Here.
This is software, written by Mouser, specifically written to help with this kind of situation.
Thanks a lot for pointing it out...
I liked it, but there are few problems with it:
1. It allows a *key* to be used at only ONE PLACE in the document. That doesn't serve my purpose.
2. Less importantly, it works with only plain text... Would be time consuming if the document requires some formatting. Probably, it would be more useful if it were a plugin to Word, blending with other features of Word.
20  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Creating a document template.. on: October 03, 2008, 04:25:54 AM
...go insert a "Text Form Field". Where this button is depends on whether you are using Word 2003 or 2007...
Thanks for the help!
I use Word 2007... but, am unable to find that button, even after some desperate searching  embarassed
Plzzz elaborate... Thanks!
21  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Creating a document template.. on: October 03, 2008, 02:31:58 AM
I need to create several long documents.. which are identical, except for certain details which change with every document.
These details are repeated at various places in the document.
For eg. a "name" used, would appear at various places in a document.. and the name would differ for each document

I want to create a template wherein I would enter a new "name" only once.. and it would update that name in all the relevant places in the document.
Like the "name", there would be several other items to be filled at various places.

After all the items which change with every document are entered once, the template would generate a new document complete with new details.

I am looking to do this without much coding-like-stuff involved.
If there is a user-friendly software to do this, it would be great... Any leads??

Thanks!

24  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Save Firefox Search Engines on: August 31, 2008, 03:19:41 AM
Well the search engines are shown in your FF Profile folder, correct?  And FEBE claims to back up the WHOLE Profile, as mentioned by mwang, so that should do it. If you are still suspicious of FEBE then you shouldn't use it, I guess.

You can always go to the Firefox user folder and make a copy of the search engines there. Or make a copy of the entire folder and store it elsewhere, on a CD, an external drive, online data storage, etc.

Well, last time I restored using FEBE, i remember rearranging the toolbar buttons and adding the search engines again (though there is a specific option in FEBE to backup and restore search plugins)
But am not sure if it was because of an error on my part or FEBE... So, I don't want to take chances.
Ofcourse I din't stop using it, coz it restored all other stuff (extensions, preferences, etc)

Thanks for the tip on copying the entire folder... I'll check it out next time
And if it works... bye bye FEBE!

25  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Save Firefox Search Engines on: August 31, 2008, 01:52:08 AM
I needed "search.sqlite"
I have FEBE extension.. but I am not sure whether it backs up those 'search engines'
Thanks mwang!
