101 Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: middle click on desktop to get quick launch or 'start menu' on: April 12, 2012, 03:56:36 PM
Very well could be why I haven't been able to find anything. The system tray is designed to stay where it is and as it is. Thanks for trying.  smiley
102 Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: middle click on desktop to get quick launch or 'start menu' on: April 12, 2012, 02:02:19 PM
Is it possible to make some type of pop-up of all or part of the system tray with middle click?  With some programs minimizing there, (Screenshot Captor, Clipboard Help & Spell, Ethervane Echo,ClipTrap...etc) at times it would be easier to bring the tray up at the cursor.  For instance, if I'm on an external monitor to the left of my laptop and the tray's waaaaay over on the right  Wink
I've looked around from time to time, usually after I've been doing at lot of right clicks in the system tray on a project, but haven't found anything that says it will do the system tray.  Maybe it isn't even doable?

I've installed and trying out the beta.  I am liking the layout and different options available.  Looks like I am going to have to start saving my pennies for when it comes out of beta.

There is one thing happening to me that I do not know if is a glitch or I just haven't worked with it enough yet. I am running on a dual monitor set-up. External is connected to my laptop.
Main program window is on the external monitor.
If I double-click one of the images in the main program window, a preview screen comes up full screen mode on the laptop screen.  That's ok.
I single-click on a different image in the main program screen and the image changes in the preview screen. Ok too. What I expected.
I click on another different image in the main program window and nothing changes in the preview screen.  Even tried going back to my original selection and no changes in the preview. I close the preview, double-click on a different image and it shows up in the preview. Repeat the same thing above and the same thing happens.

Is it something I'm doing wrong or a glitch?

My Digital Documents 2011 is on BDJ today for 75% off. Regularly $99.99.

Their web site is

There's been a few topics & discussions here before on document catalog programs. I searched but nothing came up where this one was mentioned. This looks interesting and I'm going to try and make time today to download the trial.  In the mean time I was wondering if anyone here has already tried it and what they think?

Partial description from their web site:

I should have added more to my post above but I was pressed for time.

Like x16wda says it is pretty convoluted with 2003. But since kalos mentioned using 2003 that is what I had found in an earlier time when I was trying to do the same. I'm also still running 2003 on one machine and didn't have 2007 yet on my other one. It is much easier now with 2007. My reference to maybe using a script or macro to make it easier should have said for the 2003 edition.

Another thought, is this something that could be accomplished using one of the free alternatives like LibreOffice? I don't have a copy installed, but if someone else does maybe they can answer.
106  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: xls to png on: April 06, 2012, 04:54:24 PM
This isn't a one-click solution but you can do the same thing in Excel 2003.

Found this on Bright Hub How to Save an Excel Object as an Image

The article gives a step by step for both 2007 and 2003. Maybe a macro/script could make it one step??

Hi Tranglos,

I went to both your new and old sites and noticed Ethervane Radio isn't shown on either. Do you have any further updates/features planned? Not being pushy, just wondering?

Also, one of the links in your initial post is 404'ing.
Links copied from your original post:
This one works ok. Brings up a download file dialog.

This one comes back with the 404:

I am running v Is this the current one available?  Latest shown in the 1st post just has 0.2.4 and Feb 28 with no year.

It is working fine except for occasionally not being able to connect to a station that comes up in the search.  Luckily for me most of the ones I like ARE connecting.

Thanks fot the great program.

Thanks for the heads up and taking the time to check this out and post about it. I am trying to stay away from keeping it "in the cloud" as much as I can anyway. Still good information to have available.
109 Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Using Ctrl+C to Copy to Clipboard on: March 21, 2012, 10:03:24 AM
My focus was on SCC and not CH+S.  embarassed  My maximum area was 1000 (default?). Changed to 6000 and it's back working like a charm for images.
Ctrl+C in thumbnail (screenshot panel) copies the file so I can paste in a different location/folder/etc.  Got it.
All I'd like now is a hotkey to copy the file path. Till then I'll keep using the right-click copy path name with the mouse.

I knew about the hotkeys tab.  I should have worded it differently. I meant how do I get the keystrokes in there.  Figured it out.
Put cursor in the line after "None" then start with (press) Ctrl or Alt and the other keys you want to assign to it. "None" is replaced with the keys. Got it.
110 Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Using Ctrl+C to Copy to Clipboard on: March 21, 2012, 09:25:51 AM
Thanks mouser.  I understand what you mean. Ends up that neither way is working for me right now. Ctrl+C or via the menus sending anything to CH+S. wallbash
Could be I have something else running in my tray competing for the hotkey.  I'll have to work with it later & try and figure it out.

On a different topic. Are there any instructions on how to add custom hotkeys? I see in the latest ver you've already set DirectX Capture to Ctrl + Shift + Alt + X. I went through the videos, they're mentioned, but that's all I found. And help just says they can be set.

111  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: RightNote Ver 2.4.1 Is Out on: March 21, 2012, 08:20:01 AM
I just checked RightNote's site to see whether they have started a forum.

You're not the only one who does that.

I really wish they could somehow get a forum set up. Never having done one I don't know what all is involved, but have to feel it is an undertaking. At the same time though, it could help boost visibility, customer base and support. I dropped an email question to their support back on 3/7 and haven't heard anything back yet.
112  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / RightNote Ver 2.4.1 Is Out on: March 20, 2012, 09:54:14 PM
I just checked RightNote's site to see whether they have started a forum. No forum yet but did notice they released version 2.4.1 today. I don't know, or was able to find on the site, what's in the release.   I won't be able to update until tomorrow but thought I'd pass this on for those that can sooner.

Edit: Didn't see it at first... Here they are

113 Software / Screenshot Captor / Using Ctrl+C to Copy to Clipboard on: March 20, 2012, 03:42:46 PM
I've noticed that Ctrl+C doesn't seem to be working to copy a previously taken screenshot to the clipboard.  Not a new one but an old one.
I have options set to send a new shot to the clipboard and it works fine.  It is later when I want to go back and copy a previously taken shot.
I highlight an old shot in the screenshot panel with my mouse or keyboard. If I use Ctrl+C nothing happens. But if I use Edit>Copy Image/Object to Clipboard (Ctrl+C) and click with the mouse it's copied fine. I'm sending it to CH&S and I hear the "waterdrop" sound saying it's copied plus I check and it's there.

Have I missed a setting?

It's fun to go back and look at old computer & electronics magazine articles just to see how things have changed over time. I kept some from the '70s and it's amazing.

No one has said it yet though, I'd be careful what you put on-line.  Especially if any of it is copyrighted.  While your intentions are good, too many people today try to make money the "new-fashioned" way... litigation and lawsuits. 
Just a thought.

118  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Excel and third-party clipboard managers on: March 08, 2012, 02:00:00 PM
After never having a problem over the years I've only just started seeing a "cannot empty clipboard" (or to that effect) with Excel 2003 during the past week or so.  Like you I've searched and did come up with the following forums addressing the issue.  You may have already seen them but here are the links anyway.

From Microsoft Answers
On Mr. Excel forum
Online Tech Tips
Online Tech Tips provides a number of things to try.

What was brought up in a couple of them is some other process hanging on to the clipboard.  Recently I've been running Clipboard Help+Spell, Ethervane Echo and Screenshot Captor at the same time. And it's since I've been running all three that I've seen the error.  So maybe it has to do with running all three at the same time. Or maybe even some other program. I did install some others during that time also. I haven't had the time to try different combinations to figure it out.  I've just been hitting ok and moving on. Most of the articles do mention it will need to be a process of elimination to determine which other program is causing it.

119  Other Software / Found Deals and Discounts / Re: DrawPlusX5 50% on BDJ on: March 08, 2012, 11:59:34 AM

Draw+ looks interesting and I downloaded the starter edition trial to take a look see. When I went to install I was asked is I wanted their toolbar that I declined.


I continued on, it did some un-packing and up popped this screen:


This is the 1st time ever I have had this happen when installing a program. I re-booted yesterday and I haven't installed anything since.
Any ideas on why this is happening? I've heard this is a quality product and don't want to be paranoid about it, just never had it happen before.  Anything else that could cause this?
I cancelled till I decide what to do.

120  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Notes with dual ( X and Y axis ) user category tabs & other interface niceties on: March 08, 2012, 09:17:13 AM


Right Note, for instance has a strong horizontal (x axis) implementation combined with an explorer tree on the y axis with multiple levels, I think.  This could be given an arbitrary tab-interface score of maybe 8.5 on a scale of 10, real solid and strong, not spectacular.
The reason this is helpful is that often your major categories, such as finances, web, spirit, software, etc could be the Y axis distinction, while the specific topics could be X axis,   Within the specific topics, then, the Explorer tree would only get moderately cluttered.  The whole purpose here is to keep a bit of top-down thinking so that the Explorer tree does not have to be frequently opened and closed and navigated to find the present topic.

I have only recently started using RightNote but so far it is able to do most everything I've needed or tried. Purchased it during the BDJ offer.
The X Y axis is present in RightNote, they are just opposite of your above quote.  Categories (Pages in RightNote) are the X and specific topics would be the Y (Explorer window.)  This better fits my usage and I guess thought process.
I also like that it allows me to choose the type "note" I prefer in each category. Each can be any or combination of Memo, RichEdit or RichView (still figuring out the differences of the two,) Source Code or Spreadsheet.

A major example -
 ** I would like my major colors right on the button bar, rather than a pull-down pallet and choice. **
Is this implemented here or there ?  A note is much more usable if you can color-code on the fly, very simply.
Unfortunately I haven't found a single button method but it is still relatively easy to change the color through the right-click context menu.  Plus through the context menu a different icon can be added to each note, child or sibling.

Another big issue is an active user forum, a rarity in the Note field.  Worthy of discussion, too, as it has a lot to do with where we settle.  Right Note is considered excellent despite this lack, but it should be noted.  The developers should be encouraged on this, even if it is done by a Yahoogroups or Googlegroups type of forum, or even attempted by letting Donationcoder or another forum host.  (Wilder's does this a lot with security software, quite successfully.)
It's also unfortunate RightNote doesn't have a forum for sharing of information... yet.  I am hopeful it is only a yet and one will be started. I saw that you posted regarding this on BDJ.
I'm not sure how their support by email is doing so far.  I sent a question and haven't heard back yet.  Being fair, it's only been ~18 hours since it was sent.

Thanks Curt.  Hope it's of help.
122  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Found an Office Ribbon UI Editor on: March 06, 2012, 10:29:48 AM

I came across an Office Ribbon Editor I haven't seen discussed here yet.  Or mentioned after a couple of searches.

Simply called Office Ribbon Editor by LeafCreations

Short quote from the main page:
About Office Ribbon Editor

Office Ribbon Editor's main focus is on editing the RibbonUI for Excel, Word, and PowerPoint. The reason behind this decision lies on the fact that the ribbonUI is managed with XML. Office Ribbon Editor is a feature rich application that includes such features as:

    Creating Office 2007 and 2010 documents without the requirement of having Office actually installed.
    Syntax highlighting and Autocomplete capability.
    Access to all Office 2007 and 2010 features from the ribbon to the new Backstage feature found in Office 2010.

Since there's been a few discussions here about the MS Ribbon it might be of interest.
I am mostly still in the dark ages and using Office 2003 so I haven't tried it.

Standard disclaimer... I am not affiliated with the program or developer in any way.
123  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Android Tablets on: March 03, 2012, 06:33:54 PM
In addition to looking at the processor etc. one suggestion that is a recurring theme on some of the tablet related forums I've visited is to pick your apps 1st.  The tablet can be the fastest and prettiest one out there but if it doesn't do what you want it doesn't make a difference. 
Just an observation.

There was a similar request a while back by another member for something like this.
tellme I think that might have been me.

Request / idea was to show a list of shortcuts overlaid on the desktop (to one side) related to the current focused app.
New app => new list.

IDEA ~ Show List of Shortcuts overlaid on Desktop

Yep, yours was the one. I like your idea and have been watching out in my "travels" to different sites for something like it. I even thought about trying a wallpaper changer but that seemed more of a hassle than a solution.  I like Ian's solution. I'll just have to learn a bit about AHK. Which definitely isn't a bad thing.
125  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Windows 7 hotkeys reminder popup - AutoHotkey script on: February 29, 2012, 06:56:41 AM
Thank you for this. I have been meaning to try and learn some about AHK but haven't so far. Your script is helpful for Win7.  if I wanted to do similar for a different program could I just replace your hotkeys text with something else using an editor and run it in AHK?

There was a similar request a while back by another member for something like this.
