However, a subsequent hotkey invocation leads to focus being stolen here.

does this problem only occur when triggering via hotkey (as opposed to timer?)

It happens with both (I added a comment to the post above too).

The key here to observing focus not being stolen seems to be to get the Options dialog up first (without any quote showing), clicking on the "OK" button and then either waiting for a quote to appear or using the hotkey.  After one quote dialog appears, subsequent appearances of quote dialogs appear to steal focus consistently (until the options dialog box is brought up with a quote dialog showing and then the "OK" button being clicked.)



FWIW, the testing is being done on a system where PopupWisdom had never been installed before.

Anyone know if there will be any more work on the Debian-based flavor?

Testing whether focus gets stolen seems to yield different results.

Right after clicking the "OK" button of the Options dialog (with no quote dialog showing), using the hotkey to bring up a new quote does not lead to focus being stolen.  However, a subsequent hotkey invocation leads to focus being stolen here.

Similar behavior was observed for the case of waiting for quotes to appear -- in contrast to summoning one by hotkey.

Tried under Windows XP Pro (as guest OS of Virtualbox).

Focus seemed to still be stolen even with unchecking "Popup gets Active Focus":

v131120 new db format; works with pdf files with complex pagelabels (1,2,i,ii,iii,1.1,1.2,3,4,5...)

Seems to be working here smiley

Quote
I found a workaround that doesn't need pdftk. The grid should now work with any file. If a page is earmarked that has a pagelabel other than a roman or arabic number s_e uses "pagecount" (the position of the page in the pdf file) in the grid for that pdf.

Nice!

Thanks for the response -- is it correct that without signing up for an account functionality is fairly limited?  I installed it and went to try out some of the functionality but I keep getting some dialog about signing up...when I decline, I don't seem to get very far.  Not to my liking if so...I have updated my requirements to reflect this Wink



Is there a name for apps that require accounts?  Or perhaps a name for apps that don't?  If not, may be it's time to come up with some good names smiley

@Deozaan:

Did you end up finding something to your liking?



I'm looking for something that will for starters:

  • Allow creation of own recipes
  • Store ingredient list per recipe
  • Import/Export from/to file
  • Associate at least one image with each recipe
  • Search by recipe name as well as ingredients
  • Provide a way to browse recipes by the associated images -- plus filter based on name / ingredient search criteria
  • Functions adequately without signing up for an account

Things that seem to come close include:

1. If FARR does add indexing then it would be useful to also make search results possible to detach into a separate window with column sorting (time created, filetype, filename, ...) where files can be bulk selected and operated on. Similar to how Everything works. Being able to add shortcuts to such "search views" could also be useful. The short cut would pop up a windows that show all files that match some (perhaps complex) FARR search formula.

Mmm!  Sounds nice smiley

I tried earmarking the first three entries in the bookmarks for Free as in Freedom 2.0.

The three things listed in the popup are (in order):

1.1
00v
vii

I expected to see:

v
vii
1.1


My bad -- tested with an older version.

What I see with 131108 is:

i5
i7
 i (preceded by space?)

For each case, the grey area of the popup shows:

v i5
vii i7
1.1 i



On a side note, just learned that there's a book on PDF from O'Reilly - Developing with PDF - Dive Into the Portable Document Format - with the following blurb:

Quote
PDF is becoming the standard for digital documents worldwide, but it’s not easy to learn on your own. With capabilities that let you use a variety of images and text, embed audio and video, and provide links and navigation, there’s a lot to explore. This practical guide helps you understand how to work with PDF to construct your own documents, troubleshoot problems, and even build your own tools.

Don't know much about it, but FWIW.

Regarding page numbering in PDFs, I'd be noticing that the page number displayed on some PDFs didn't match what applications were displaying.  At some point, that lead to some digging in the specifications -- perhaps you are already aware, but FWIW there's a bit of somewhat introductory material about this at:

  http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/WCAG20-TECHS/PDF17.html

(Relevant sections: Description and Example 2)

More details are in "12.4.2 Page Labels" in the PDF 1.7 spec it seems.



Haven't tested the new version yet but hope to -- must find appropriate PDF first smiley

If dreaming is allowed, off the top of my head in no particular order:

  • Possibly source code to encourage 3rd party participation, ease burden of single individual, encourage certain kinds of design decisions, etc.
  • Developed with tools freely available
  • Cross-platform - at least also *NIX, but nice to also target WINE
  • Improved multilingual support (e.g. sufficiently Unicode-aware)
  • Near-full operation as a library and/or via command line (e.g. for use via 3rd party programs) - might encourage alternate GUIs to be developed

If the author of the plugin sees this thread, may be he'll have some useful comments...

I don't remember the details clearly, but IIUC phitsc's FarrWebMetaSearch plugin does some portion of what was described.

Have you had a look at that?

Hmm.

Please consider changing the text that appears via the "how to use" menu item:
Quote
RightClick top right pdf corner = toggle earmark on|off for open pdf page

I believe reading that contributed to my expectation of the right-clicking working to set the first earmark even with no grey box.



...and I also hope the feature makes it into SumatraPDF Wink

Feedback for v131101:

  • Toggling off the earmark works with right-clicking (both for bookmarks showing and not).
  • Toggling on an earmark works via the keyboard but if there is no grey earmark box showing (presumably because there are no earmarks yet) then right-clicking does not cause a blue earmark to appear (whether bookmarks are showing or not).  If a grey earmark box is showing, toggling via right-clicking seems to work.

An initial test produced results similar to before.

However, decided to try another PDF and the results were different.

An obvious difference between the tests was that for one the bookmarks view was showing and for the other it wasn't.

Toggling the bookmarks view off for the PDF I had been testing before gave different (successful) results.

Perhaps the visibility of the bookmarks view makes a difference?

Is the gray/blue square positioned over or to the left of the scrollbar? If to the left of the scrollbar, try doing a ctrl+right click the scrollbar up button instead. Does that cause the grid to display?

The earmark square appears to the left of the square with the up arrow (at the top of the scrollbar).

Tried ctrl-right-clicking the up arrow button/square, but no grid appeared.

FWIW, ordinary right-clicking the up arrow button/square didn't ultimately change the state of the earmark either.  (Ordinary right-clicking of the earmark box still causes the earmark box to disappear for a moment before reappearing.)

I just tested with Windows 7 Pro SP1 64-bit (not as a guest OS) and SumatraPDF 2.4 with similar results:

  • Control-right-click on earmark doesn't bring up a grid window
  • Right-clicking the earmark behaves in the same ineffective way as described before

Curious.

I wonder if there is some pilot error...

FWIW, I've also duplicated the phenomena on another machine though there it was also via VirtualBox.  One host OS was Arch Linux while the other was Windows 7.
149  DonationCoder.com Software / N.A.N.Y. 2014 / Re: N.A.N.Y. 2014 Submission: sumatra_earmarks on: October 30, 2013, 10:11:25 PM
Maybe the bug only appears on earlier Sumatra versions?

Upgraded SumatraPDF here to 2.4, but at least under VirtualBox-XP there was no difference.  Will try to investigate testing under other conditions.

Quote
If there is at least one earmark then the grey square is shown all the time.

Aha -- good to know!

Quote
Here is version 131029b but with F4 added as a hotkey to open the grid, for testing:
http://nod5.dcmembers.com.../sumatra_earmarks--F4.zip

Thanks!  Was able to see the grid -- the numbers seem to show up fully now  thumbs up

Also appreciate the simplicity of S_E -- thanks for the further thoughts regarding its design.

- I have no clue why neither the ctrl+rclick nor rclick commands works on your system. I see no problem in the code. I hope someone with a non-virtualbox Windows jumps in and test runs it too. That way we'll see if the issues are virtualbox-specific.
- a grid hotkey wouldn't be of use since the grid will need a mouse click to jump to an earmark anyway (no way to key navigate with the grid construction I've used).

I can appreciate the point about the non-mouse grid hotkey -- but its existence would help me to test as currently getting the grid to show up doesn't work here.

On second thought, is it not possible that one might want to just see the grid view but not click on it?  For example, to verify whether there are any earmarks or perhaps find out how many there are...
