Everything is tiny. This is v2.218.02 on a 4k screen.

Concerning Ctrl + Shift not selecting words: this seems to be a deliberate choice and was also discussed here http://www.donationcoder....m/index.php?topic=27154.0 (a long time ago)

It still confuses me every now and then huh

Never noticed that FARR has undo though smiley

I tell you what i could do.. I could add a right-click menu item to launch and not add to history, if that would help..

Nah, it would need to be something like Shift+Enter for me to be useful. Better spare yourself the trouble and use your time for something of broader interest.

Or you make your own keyboard layout: The Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator. Used it just recently to resurrect some dead keys cheesy

Ok, thanks mouser.

does it exist?

32  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: FARR as bookmark manager? on: April 09, 2015, 09:05:33 AM
You say you don't want to consult browser bookmarks. But the bookmarks need to come from somewhere. They need to be stored somewhere. I'm not aware of FARR being able to store arbitrary information. It mainly queries the file system.

I see. Thank you.

Saving them as aliases would be impracticable I suppose (copy link to FARR box | context menu | add to group alias)?
Well, I guess that depends on how often you want to add/edit/remove bookmarks. If it's only a few which you want to launch over and over again that could be a viable solution. Also managing them in a FARR alias file.

Looks similar to Soulver which I have on the iPad.

Available now for 1400$ a piece. I doubt I can convince my employer that I need two of those. Well, for that price it's hard to convince myself that I need two of those.

I'm a father myself. I can't imagine anything more painful than one of my children getting seriously hurt or ill or one of them dying. Whenever I read about a child that died the thought comes to mind and my stomach cringes.

Hi wideeyedguy

If the Windows Search plugin is not working for you please don't hesitate to post your problems in that specific thread, even if it's 3 years old.

Although I'm not really using the WS plugin I have it installed and it was working just fine when I tried it just now. As you have seen in the WS plugin thread there have been people reporting crashes, which, unfortunately, I have never been able to solve. So, maybe with your help I can try to pinpoint that problem.

+1 w/Renegade. I'm actually doing as much as possible to reduce my technical and energy footprint these days. My new goal: As little as possible - and simplify, simplify, simplify.

Home automation could actually reduce your energy footprint though.
41  DonationCoder.com Software / N.A.N.Y. 2015 / Re: Drawskrit on: January 05, 2015, 03:28:15 PM
Interesting concept.
Will it be possible to specify exact sizes?

The current concept assumes that shapes change their sizes depending on with how many other shapes they have to share the available space.

So with exact size, do you mean the size within one cell, or within the whole drawing?

U mnie dziaƂa (Works for me)

Same here I'm afraid.

alxwz, after you authorize on the rmilk.com web page make sure to go back to FARR and hit enter on the single entry that should now be displayed (see Getting started on first post). If it still doesn't work for you let me know.

Anyone using the Mailbird Email client and can recommend (or advise against) it?

44  DonationCoder.com Software / N.A.N.Y. 2015 / Drawskrit on: December 19, 2014, 03:43:04 PM
My NANY contribution for this year is a simple description language for drawings and diagrams (which I've named Drawskrit). My main goal is to be able to describe diagrams with text. The description language should be natural and simple (I don't want a diagram programming language).

Its current state is experimental. I have a JavaScript implementation that demonstrates the current specification. I'm afraid it's not very useful yet though. I'm not sure I'll ever get it to a state where it'll be powerful enough to specify real-world non-toy diagrams without becoming a complex monster language.

A few of the current obvious shortcomings:
  • needs more shapes (e.g. arrows)
  • current text alignment sucks (specification bug)
  • dotted/dashed looks horrible with thick lines (implementation bug)
  • needs more documentation (e.g. layers)
  • JS implementation needs to be decoupled from the HTML demo page

If I ever get it to a state where it's actually useful, I'm planning to implement it as a cross-platform tool which can be integrated into an automated build process.

A non-formal specification (i.e. a description) and the JavaScript implementation can be found here:

https://github.com/phitsc/drawskrit

Drawskrit is open source.

If someone wants to play around with it please direct your browser here:

http://rawgit.com/phitsc/.../master/js/drawskrit.html

As a first example, paste the following text into the big text box on the left of the above web page:

[copy or print]
orange background filled shapes
_
small blue circle small green circle
tiny purple square big red triangle tiny purple square
small olive smile

==
fat navy huge empty dashed circle

I always found  Andrew Binstock's articles outstanding.

What I find interesting: I can still remember the shock when I held the last print edition of C++ user journal in my hands, and my subscription turned into a Dr. Dobb's print edition subscription. Then that ended as well. And now not even the online edition is sustainable (which, I must admit, I did not subscribe to). I could well imagine that this will happen to many other ad-based services in the not so distant future.

I think these would be great for programming and I'd very much like to have a pair.
That's what they said about pyjamas!

Until you realise that you can simply program naked and do less laundry...

But only in Australia
49  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Experimenting with Other Programming Languages on: November 28, 2014, 08:30:47 AM
The main reason I never made an Android app is because of my profound dislike for Java (which I know is absurd). I've investigated alternatives (e.g. Scala), but they all seem to be more than sub-optimal (especially for novices of the platform).

I'm planning to check out one of the cross-platform solutions one day though.

I think these would be great for programming and I'd very much like to have a pair. I'm very curious to learn what they'll cost.
