201  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: SOLVED: Copy the "Save As" filepath to the clipboard on: July 14, 2011, 12:02:21 PM

Thanks very much for the suggestion and the link vevola.
Tried it out and it isn't exactly what I was thinking of in my original post.  I've been getting more comfortable with the many features of XYplorer and doing similar to what Winkie suggested above.
But, CopyPath is going to be helpful to me in another way.  Thmbsup
I tried a test using the standard file "Open..." in Excel and Word.  After I get to whichever file I'm wanting to open I can right-click and select the copy path and there I have it to paste into any other program I may need to paste it.
I can do this already if I'm opening the file from within XYplorer with DonL's tip above.  But couldn't if it was being opened from within any other program.  Also works with lists of files I access with my Launch Bar Commander set-up if I need it to.
Thanks again!

After receiving feedback about user not being able to put the apps shortcut link in startup folder and Google not giving any simpler explanation, I made a webpage in this regard.

Simplest way to put shortcut of a program into the startup folder.

I wanted the steps to be very simple and common to even non-technical person. I will request all to give comments on it to make it even simpler, if possible.




Thank you for this.  These steps are 'old hat' and simple to some, but if a person hasn't done it before they don't necessarily know where to start.  Or what to search for.  ie the feedback you received.  It's not that they can't do it, it's just something new to them.

I bought XYplorer Friday on the BDJ special.  It's great!  I think I may be able to do what I'm looking for with it.  Or use it in place of what I'm trying with a notetaking program.  So this can probably moved to "solved."
209  Special User Sections / N.A.N.Y. 2009 / Re: NANY 2009 Release: Trout (audio player) on: April 08, 2011, 01:20:33 PM

I looked through the post & didn't see where this has been asked before.  Is it possible to add a bookmark function?  Or is it there and I just haven't found it?

Along with music I also use Trout to listen to previously downloaded podcasts.  Sometimes there is something I would like to go back and listen to again to make a note of something said.  Now I keep Trout on the screen and jot down the TE or TR for the show I'm listening to and go back later.  If a hotkey could be pressed to save some of the tag info and a TE or TR it would make it easier to find than the slip of paper I wrote it on.

Let me know if this isn't the right forum for this.

Like most, over time I have collected a large number of program downloads, pdf's, etc.  Recently I have started "cataloging," as such, some of my new downloads, documents, etc.  I have been trying out a couple of notetaking programs for this.  The ones I have tried have the ability of clicking on a pasted complete filepath link and it will take you to the directory if it is a saved program or for documents load the associated program and the document. 

Here are the steps I use now:
From a browser or program (Word for instance) I use the "Save as" selection, find the directory and at times sub-(or sub-sub-sub) directory to save to, leave the file name and file type as it is or change it and save.  Then I have to open a file manager, drill back down through the directories to where it was saved, copy the filepath, paste to the note page I am creating and add any tags/notes.  I also like this way because I can also add a screenshot to the note if I want to.

I'm trying to minimize the steps a little. 

After doing the "Save as" I'd like to not have to go back through and find the saved file with a file manager to get a copy of the complete file path to paste to the note page.  Here's what I'm wondering... Is there a way to also send a copy of the complete "Save as" file path to the clipboard (or to Clipboard Help+Spell) at the same time as the file is being saved?  I could then just bring up the clipboard (or CH+S), paste it to the note and add whichever extra is needed for the program to recognize it as a link.

I have searched through the forums here and on some other sites but haven't found anything similar discussed.

Sometimes timing is everything...:

 (see attachment in previous post)

Downloading now ;-)  http://sourceforge.net/projects/flashfolder/

But isn't it dead?
The only version I can see at Sourceforge is 1.9.181 from 2008. I have installed from somewhere I don't remember but it changes nothing.

I saw Ver available for download in this FlashFolder Forum posting on SourceForge.  Here is the link shown in the post. http://zett42.de/_temp/Fl...hFolder_TEST_1.10.227.zip

Edit: Oops...The link now comes up not found.

In Firefox 4
Tools > Options > Applications > Application/pdf  I set to "always ask"
There are also other choices here.
Thankyou for that note. I had not spent the time looking at that menu. That seems like quite an improvement in FF4 over the previous versions.

The same can also be done in earlier FF versions. Not sure at what version it was implemented but here is a screen shot off an XP machine running FF 3.6.16.


It looks a little different than the earlier shot.  The earlier was from Win7 with FF4.  Both work the same.
I wasn't aware of the other methods mentioned above when I found this one.  It works best for me in that if I know it is a trusted source I can go ahead and open it or save it to a folder to virus scan 1st.  If I decide to open it, it's opened in PDF-XChange and not the browser. And I can save it from there if I want.

Tools > Options > Applications > Application/pdf  I set to "always ask"
FWIW, that's the setting I found when I took a look just now.  May be it's the default if you don't have any PDF software "installed"...I tend to use SumatraPDF portably.

I use PDF-XChange viewer and with that setting whenever I click on a pdf I get this pop-up allowing me to decide what I want to do.

216  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What Blackberry apps do you use? on: April 02, 2011, 11:41:52 AM
BlackBerry 9650
Pretty much just use the standard features.  Did add these:

Partial description from site:
"QuickLaunch allows you to setup an unlimited number shortcuts to various functions such as Websites, Email, SMS and PIN addresses, Phone numbers, 3rd Party Apps, Videos, Images, Audio files, Screen Capture, Device Info, Weather, Bluetooth and WiFi Toggle, Camera and much more! In addition to these you can also launch Blackberry Options, Calculator, Calendar, Tasks and even the App Switcher. Configure a convenience key to activate QuickLaunch and when pushed a menu will pop up showing a scrollable list of your configured actions."

Documents To Go
Many have heard of & already know what it does... Partial description from site:
"Documents To Go Premium Edition is an all-in-one solution that provides users with the ability to view, edit and create Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint files and attachments as well as view critical PDF files all on their BlackBerry smartphones. Also included is an easy to use desktop application offering bi-directional file synchronization and providing users with a simple way to transfer and manage important documents."

Description from site:
"Percentages is a tool which allows you to make percent related calculations instantly and effortlessly by simply entering two values.
Whilst percentage formulas are not necessarily complicated, they can quite often take some working out. If you deal with percentages in any way then this app will make your life easier."

Another CONGRATULATIONS to everyone that worked so hard in reaching and EXCEEDING the initial goal.  Thmbsup
It is the "regular" posters old and hopefully some new ones as time goes on, that provide the knowledge, assistance, programs, snacks and general good times that continues to make DonationCoder so unique.  Which I believe helps increase the membership not only during fundraisers but on a daily basis.

Before I changed to a different platform these were two of my favorites:

Swiftkey Keyboard - Keyboard app that uses AI to make typing on your Android device smart, fast and personal.  It almost always knew what word I was going to type next. And there have been a few updates since then.

Edit: I also received a notice they have developed a version for Android tablets.

Gemini Calendar - Easy to use calendar application that synchronizes data with Google Calendar.  The developer is very responsive and offers the app as donationware.  Also has quite a long forum thread on Android Forums

In addition to the help & great site links above the forums at Mr. Excel might be of help. http://www.mrexcel.com/forum/index.php
I looked and Mr. Excel was briefly mentioned in the forums back in 09.  The forum members are quite active like they are here and helped me out recently with something I was trying to do.

On the main page http://www.mrexcel.com/ he also has tutorial videos, a blog and other helpful information.  Some free some some not.

Not affiliated with them in any way.

I noticed PCLinuxOS mentioned here and in a couple of other posts on the forum.  In looking for information on different live cd's I came across this PCLinuxOS site: http://www.pclinuxos.com/
There is also a link on this site to a monthly PCLinuxOS magazine: http://pclosmag.com/
The magazine is available in html or PDF versions.  The PDF versions I've downloaded so far are 40-60 pages and cover a variety of topics.  Reviews, tutorials, configurations...

Searched the forums here and didn't see either of these sites mentioned before and thought I'd pass them along.  Might be of some help.

Not sure if this would enter into the picture or not. Collection of sales tax on purchases versus accepting donations.  In the event someone didn't read further and just clicked buy now.  I've read recently there are US states trying to collect sales tax on online purchases.

It will be much more ergonomic than the real thing.

If i did a software version, here is what i would do is this:

A very opinionated piece of software that tried to present a specific method of operation.

There would basically be two views:
  • Working View
  • Maintenance View

In the "Working View" you would see a very clean desktop which tried to reproduce the visual card metaphor.  This might be so minimialistic as to restrict view to a stack of cards and then 1-5 chosen cards laid out and displayed very large on screen -- like real size 3x5 inches.

Similar to the old Microsoft Cardfile or Azz Cardfile discussed here? http://www.donationcoder....m/index.php?topic=16548.0
