Thanks for the tip with TimeSprite. This

TimeSprite records the titles of the active window as you work, and intelligently groups similar titles to report how you spent your time
...sounds good since it probably would detect web research based on the browser's window titles.

True, however

I like the idea of being prompted when leaving a window
is not exactly it. I can "leave a window" about two times a minute...

I'd really need a prompt only every so often, and typically only if the time tracking tool would recognize un-typical activity like for example after I have changed a lot between windows that HAVE the project ID and windows that DON'T have the project ID in their titlebar -- which in my case would indicate that I was researching something (project-related) on the web.

That is an old tool called Rayflectar Project Timers that only tracks windows titles (which works great, so far).
29  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Looking for a project time tracker/nag tool that keeps me writing billable notes on: August 08, 2014, 03:20:44 AM
Hello forum,

I am looking for a very basic time tracking software that tracks time based on application windows title names.

I am usually only working on one or two projects at a time. Every project has its unique project number which turns up in the filename of each and every file assigned to the project.

Therefore, the software basically only should keep track how much time is spent in application windows that contain a project's number in their titlebar.

I already use a time tracking software like that which works really good. The only problem is, my current time tracking tool is working so silent in the background that I actually forget to write short descriptive texts that after like three weeks of working on Project A can be used for billing purposes.

Additionally, the software should be somewhat intelligent in the sense of noticing for example that if I have been working in a Word document related to Project A for one hour, and then spend like half an hour in the browser researching stuff (which actually might be saved in the project folder, again getting assigned filenames containing the project number), the software should ask me quickly whether this browser time was Project A related or not, including the possibility to assign a short descriptive text regarding what I have done in that last half-hour.

What I do not need is a full fledged procrastination suite with lots of analysis tools, or a large project time management software. I'd only like to track just that little bit better how much, and especially "what" actually I have been doing today in my projects A and B.

If I think about it, basically I would need the tool to do two things, additionally to just tracking window titles.

It would need to ask me questions like:

Quote
This afternoon, you have spent 4.7 hours in your project A's documents. Do you want to write a short descriptive text what you have been doing?
and

Quote
The last two hours, you have been working in your project A's documents, but you also have spent 50 minutes in the browser, mainly on the website "Archive.org". Do you want to write a short descriptive text what you have been doing?

Thanks very much already for any suggestions

OK, back to Nexus, the only universal Dock that doesn't seem to be abandoned (or Payware).
32  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)?
33  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?
34  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.)
39  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

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?

Ahh sounds good Curt.

I'll try the installer then.

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
David

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").
