OK, back to Nexus, the only universal Dock that doesn't seem to be abandoned (or Payware).
27  DonationCoder.com Software / Circle Dock / Re: Stop Cirlce Dock from going invisible on: March 15, 2014, 10:58:50 AM
What is happening, by Default:
When you create a new link in Circle Dock the link automatically get set to "Hide Dock on opening Files and Folders"

Can this also be disabled? Or do I have to change that setting every time I add a new item (suppose I always want to keep the dock visible)?
28  DonationCoder.com Software / Circle Dock / Re: Windows 7's Taskbar....Err.....Circle Dock for the DC Programming Contest on: March 15, 2014, 10:30:22 AM
So is it still being maintained...? On the official (?) page they say "The current version of Circle Dock is 0.9. (with the download links dead).

How come -- or is only that page abandoned, and is there a newer homepage somewhere?
29  DonationCoder.com Software / Circle Dock / Re: Windows 7's Taskbar....Err.....Circle Dock for the DC Programming Contest on: March 14, 2014, 02:22:54 AM
I was looking for a replacement to Nexus Dock and came across Circle Dock. Looking at the release dates and this thread, I fear however that Circle Dock is abandonware.

True?

Thanks but no,  I wouldn't need certain windows to stay on top. That would be easy to do anyway.

Rather, I'd need

  • either: "every window that spans more than one monitor stay in the back where it is (even when clicked into)"
  • or: "each and every window keep its z-position under all circumstances (unless the titlebar is clicked - in that case, jump to the front)"

Hi forum,

especially on multi-monitor setups, it would be great if there was a way to click or work in application windows without having them jump in the foreground and covering up everything (on every monitor).


File manager spanning three monitors that covers up everything else on all monitors every time you quickly want to look something up, or quickly change a folder, scroll position, or similar (click to enlarge)

It would be amazing if someone could think of a way to code an utility that could provide this feature. TXmouse by Andy Polyakov actually (sort of) does it, however not with all applications (anymore), and with some unwanted side-effects like automatic window activation on mouse hover.

As with TXmouse, if you actually do want to change the window z-order (and bring a window to the front), you simply click on the respective windws's titlebar.

I've described it in detail over at the Actualtools.com forum, so please bear with me posting a link to the respective discussion:
Fixed Z-Order, don't change z-order if a window is clicked

I meant something like this:



Faststone Capture (sort of) does that by Ctrl-Clicking several windows (or window elements) one after the other.

(However not with shadows, rounded corners, transparency etc.)
34  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Capture rounded corners in Vista/Win7 Aero Glass on: October 24, 2013, 11:48:21 AM
Ah ok mouser, that was it! Thank you.

Btw, is it possible to capture multiple (overlapping, or adjacent) windows, for example by shift-clicking on several windows that are currently visible?

Regards David.P
35  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Capture rounded corners in Vista/Win7 Aero Glass on: October 24, 2013, 02:59:17 AM
Sorry to be late on this topic,

I have just installed the latest version of SC on Win7 Prof 64bit, and can't seem to get transparent window backgrounds.

Instead, captures look like this:





The captures are made using the "Grab active window" button of the Quick Capure Bar.

SC settings are all default (I chose "reset settings" on installation).

Any idea what could be wrong?

Hi guys,

I just updated to the latest Listary version (portable).

However, it seems that the file and directory structure has changed: everything used to be inside a "x64" folder, now not anymore; settings file used to be called "Config.xml", now it seems to be "Preferences.json".

Thus, is there any way to update Listary and keep all my previous settings?

Thanks everyone already,
David.P

Tomorrow Listary is 50% off at BitsDuJour  Thmbsup
Strike! Cool

One question regarding the usage of Listary: I like the option that opens the Listary menu with a middle mouse click (...in all Open/Save dialogs). However, elsewhere I use the middle mouse button for other things (like e.g. opening background tabs in browsers). How can I prevent Listary popping up in these cases?

Cheers David.P

Hi forum and Channing,

I'm trying to use shajul's WYSIWYG BBCode Editor together with TEA but for some reason the text is not transferred back to the textarea (e.g. here).

This editor uses a (proprietary?) file format called *.bbs (which is actually html-based).

From the first post I gather that the text should be transferred back to the textarea from the editor also by Alt+Tab, but this also doesn't seem to work.

Any hints greatly welcome,

Cheers David.P

Wow RJ, Listary looks d*mned good to me! How come that this has never been mentioned before in all the years?

[edit] OK it has  embarassed ...and I've missed it  huh

Do you think that it also will work in the proprietary Firefox and MS Office Open/Save dialogs?

Thanks

Whoaa! What happened? Has this been included as a new feature?



For some reason, FARR now seems to give me all the Windows 7 Start Button search results (even the misspelled ones).

Only the icons are missing? huh

Check your BIOS boot settings. "PXE" means the laptop thinks it is supposed to boot from LAN (thus the mention of "Cable").

This is exactly what I need, thanks!

Maybe the window can be made resizable or something, in order to allow somewhat more room for text labels?

Is it already possible to edit the labels on the "pick color dialog"?

50  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / IDEA: Project Time Tracking based on windows titles -- but with "grace period" on: May 20, 2012, 06:17:08 AM
Hi forum,

I have used Rayflectar's Project Timers for many years in order to automatically track the time I spend for certain projects, and it has been working incredibly well.

Project Timers simply monitors all current windows titles. If the title of an active window matches a custom substring AND if there is activity in that window, the respective time will be added to the project associated with that substring:



There is only one problem for me that leads to inaccuracies: for example, if I am working in a Microsoft Word document where the title contains "project abc", Project Timers will monitor the time spent in that window and add it to Project abc's time sheet - so far so good.

If however I open any dialog in Word (for example a Format, Insert or Find dialog), Project Timers will think that I am no longer working on "project abc" (because these dialogs will not have "project abc" in their window title), and it will stop the clock of that project, where actually I am still working in that project:



Same goes for quick web searches or the like, where you return to your project window (having the tile "project abc") after a few minutes. Project Timers also in this case will stop as soon as you leave your main work window, and you loose the time spent for that quick web search related to your project.

One possibility to work around this and get somewhat better accuracy of the time measurements would be to introduce a "grace period" where the current projects time keeps running for a custom period of time even after you have left one of the projects windows (for example by opening a program dialog, or doing a web search). As soon as the project window is re-entered, the respective project's time should of course start running again, even if the grace period had expired in the meantime.

Possibly, the grace period time should only be added to the respective project's time sheet if you actually return to one of the project's own windows (having the projects substring in its titlebar) during the grace period. This would prevent that a grace period's worth of time would be added to your project every time when you were actually switching to another project (or leaving your computer altogether).

Unfortunately, Project Timers doesn't have a setting for such a custom grace period. What's more, I have tried to contact the creator of Project Timers, Thomas Anagnostou, but with no success (all his mail addresses I could find are disfunctional).

Thus I think that I am prepared to donate if somebody could re-create a tool that works like Project Timers, but additionally has that adjustable "grace period" when a project window is left.

Regards
David
