I haven't been very active for a while, although I browse the forums pretty much every day, but I'm in! There are certainly some posters that are deserving of some extra credits!

I'd check out the Opera forums. Opera is up to 20.something now, so might be solved with an update?

Comparing their price isn't faulty reasoning. Jibz didn't, as far as I can tell, state that the price was the only difference. His post was a followup to the price discussion and just brought into the frame some comparison between the differing licenses and prices. It seemed clear enough to me that the post was only concerned with the price and license difference between some well known file managers. An interesting post as well... to me, anyway Wink

What's new? There are many new functions this time. The most important are:

File operations:
  • F5 copy: First copy all files where the user doesn't need to be asked and skip all with errors, ask at the end
  • F5 copy: Option to verify files after copying them.
  • F5 copy: Option to keep paths relative to current folder while in branch view (Ctrl+B)
  • Select and copy related files, e.g. *.jpg > crw*.cr2 selects/copies raw files only if there is a related .jpg file
  • F8 Delete: Only warn at the end if folders couldn't be deleted
  • F8 Delete: Always use new delete method when VistaDelete isn't set in wincmd.ini, but show our own delete confirmation dialog if the system dialog is disabled
  • Support unpacking of more archive formats: 7zip, new RAR5 format, as well as -lh6- and -lh7- (LHA)
  • RAR with encrypted file names: Show archive content after entering password
  • Pack/unpack files: Option to remember last entered password until TC is minimized, Windows goes to standby, or the screen saver starts
  • Alt+F5 pack: New option to leave out the names of the selected folders when packing each folder to a separate archive
  • New wincmd.ini options CopyLinks and IgnoreLinks to handle file system links
  • FTP/file system plugins: When editing a file with F4, the file will automatically be re-uploaded when saved in the edfitor. No need to close the editor any more. Change via Edit/View options.

User interface:
  • Support for touch screen devices: Tap on icons to select files (configurable), long tap to open context menu
  • Support for high resolution screens (high DPI)
  • Drive drop-down list (Alt+F1/Alt+F2): Show links to "My Computer" and "My Documents" Configurable via. ShowExtraDrives in wincmd.ini
  • Drive drop-down list (Alt+F1/Alt+F2): Open context menu directly in the list without choosing a drive first
  • Show exclamation mark to the left of some options as a warning, e.g. that files may not go where the user expects them to go, like during copying from branch view, or when packing and unpacking
  • Show file size and last modified time also in virtual folders like connected MTP devices like Android phones/tablets
  • Button bar: Support multiple internal and/or user-defined commands on a single button e.g. cm_SelectAll,cm_Copy
  • Progress dialog: Show number of files/bytes in more functions. Switch to files/bytes remaining by clicking on the numbers
  • Show thumbnails in virtual folders like libraries
  • Option to remember position of background transfer manager in system menu (click on top-left icon)
  • Improved background copy dialog: Show number of copied and selected files and bytes, add button "Foreground"

Search function:
  • Search for text supports any combination of ANSI, ASCII, UTF-16, UTF-8 Unicode and office XML/EPUB at the same time
  • Skip a folder by clicking on its name in the status line (with confirmation). Also allows to just pause the search
  • Open in separate process via Alt+Shift+F7, so TC can still be used during the search
  • "Feed to listbox" also when searching in archives, on FTP servers and file system plugins
  • Search for duplicate files: Search by plugin fields, e.g. name parts, file extension etc.
  • Search for duplicate files, Feed to listbox: New dialog box to select files inside the groups of duplicates, e.g. by newest, oldest etc.

Other functions:

  • Lister, right click menu: Directly search for selected text via Google in default browser (configurable)

A list of additions and corrections, also for previous versions, can be found in the history file.

Well, I'll add some RightNote love, to balance out the negative views.

I love RightNote, I think it's a wonderful piece of software and is perfect for my needs.  Kiss
I probably don't use half it's features, but what I do need is in there, and the web capturing is excellent. Money well spent, IMO!

wraith and kyrathaba, thanks a lot for your answers! I hadn't really thought about the approach you're using wraith, creating the world, characters, etc. as a starting point. I can imagine that it might very well be a better approach for me than trying to develop a story from A to Z.

Good to know that once again I can rely on fellow DC-members to come up with something helpful thumbs up
9  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Sci-fi novel now available from DC member kyrathaba! on: July 26, 2013, 03:15:26 PM
Have purchased your book and look forward to reading it! Being a fellow DC'er makes me feel like I almost know a real author Wink

I'm curious about a few things and hopefully you could be of help... When you first got the idea to this novel, how did you develop the plot and characters? Did everything sort of "just appear" or did it start with a premise and then take off from there?

How did you set about writing it? I've got a few story ideas, and sometimes I sit down, fire up a word editor and ... very little happens... Sad I write a few sentences but what I write seems a bit phony (usinga word by a favourite fictional character of mine, guess who?). What was the start of writing this novel like for you?

Thanks for any input!

11  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Listary 4 released - tons of new features on: March 08, 2013, 02:45:25 AM
I have the same problem as Jibz. It does autostart, but asks for admin privileges. Probably need to contact the developer about it.

13  Special User Sections / Shareware Discounts for Members / Re: So, when are the next discounts? on: February 18, 2013, 01:24:29 PM
Agreed, quarterly is just fine. Out of curiosity, how are developers usually contacted when you ask for discounts? A mail describing Donationcoder.com and a request?

I'd like this as well, and then I remembered  FileMenu Tools. http://www.lopesoft.com/en/fmtools/info.html

I think it does pretty much what you want, and it's free smiley

[attachthumb=1]

edit: I've noticed that FARR displays the same sized icons with Desktop Large and Ridiculous set.
17  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Setting "Large Icon Slides" won't display icons on: February 17, 2013, 04:23:49 AM
The "Desktop large" and "Ridiculous" sizes do work after restarting FARR, but Normal size (32x32) doesn't. Not after restarting either. I'll just use the "Desktop Large" for now, but let me know if you want me to test a new build or anything.

Thanks for your fast reply, mouser  Thmbsup
18  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Setting "Large Icon Slides" won't display icons on: February 17, 2013, 04:10:25 AM
Having an issue with the "Large Icon Slides" setting, as it won't display any icons in the FARR search window. Small icons display just as expected, but none of the large icons work for me...

I'm using the latest FARR on Win8. I noticed in the latest release thread that user daylessland had a similar issue. I can try an older build and see if that works, just point me to a download link smiley

Icons are displayed as expected in explorer.

I tried amazon and imdb. Will try more, and see if I might be able to fix this myself  undecided

Is this supposed to still work? Doesn't for me on Win 8... always shows 0 results
21  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: New Windows install - How should I organize SSD, HDD, user folders? on: January 27, 2013, 01:33:54 AM
Finally got my new computer, now with no pixel errors, thankfully.

I've decided to partition both disks in two, with about ~75GB on the SSD for Windows + apps. I also left a ~40GB partition on the HDD for system images (to be transferred to an external disc eventually).

I'll use the library function for documents, pictures, etc and try to find some sort of system for using both the "data partition" on the SSD and the HDD for my files.

Thanks for the help and also for the mention of RamDisk. I'll try to use that as well smiley

Thanks again!  I'm getting there smiley Now just need to look at those pixel errors... Sad
25  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: New Windows install - How should I organize SSD, HDD, user folders? on: December 29, 2012, 01:13:17 PM
I've got my home workstation SSD split in a ~64gig partition for Windows + most applications, and a ~47gig for my documents, sourcecode, et cetera. Makes OS reinstall a bit easier, but with a small SSD micro-managing free space can be annoying. Games and "bulk" data goes on a 300gig (well, 279gig in non-SI units smiley).
Hadn't thought of partitioning the SDD. Did you symlink the documents from the system partition, or just use a custom documents folder?

I guess my main concern would be the AppData folder, which I hope to contain within reasonable size, and I'm leaning towards custom My [stuff] folders and add these to the corresponding libraries.

Backup is certainly one reason why I'm looking to get this right from the start, but also to have a fairly good overview over my files. My current system is a mess, and I really don't want to end up with this mess again. I'll probably go with one of the suggested backup procedures found in a few threads on here (Clean System image, System + important software image, monthly system image, daily important file backup to cloud).

Thanks for some good advice, folks smiley
