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.

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.

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

Aha -- good to know!

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...

Another data point - W7 via VirtualBox exhibits the same symptoms.

Some quick feedback for v1310129b (fresh install):

  • So far control-right-clicking on the earmark box doesn't lead to a grid window appearing -- any chance of a (non-mouse-involved) hotkey to invoke this functionality?
  • RIght clicking the earmark box hasn't toggled the earmark box state yet (both left and right clicking do make the box display grey temporarily before reverting) -- should it?
  • Customizing of hotkeys via modifying the generated ini file works with a subsequent S_E restart -- how does the idea of an option to reload earmarks via its tray menu sound (or perhaps some kind of auto reloading based on ini file change...)?

I've heard that some of the hardware options listed have worked for some people.

Some quick results with v131028:

  • full page numbers are seen via the "list of earmarks" window smiley - still want a screenshot of old version in action?
  • earmark box now appears to the left of the scrollbox thumbs up

In my brief testing I noticed that clicking (left and right, and whether blue or grey) no longer toggles the earmark here -- though the shortcut key still works.



Haven't tried the customizing of the shortcut keys yet (hope to soon), but thanks for working on it!

What do you think about providing a sample shortcut key configuration file (to be renamed by user)?  Perhaps this might be useful because: 1) presumably the example would be one that worked, and 2) may be it might be easier for people to modify something than to create from scratch.



I neglected to mention that I'm trying via VirtualBox 4.3.x and SumatraPDF 2.3.2.
135  DonationCoder.com Software / N.A.N.Y. 2014 / Re: N.A.N.Y. 2014 Submission: sumatra_earmarks on: October 27, 2013, 10:31:30 PM
Tested with more success via XP SP3.

Tried all of the shortcut keys with success thumbs up



In the test set up I see the little blue or grey rectangle covering the page-scrolling up arrow -- when I left click the square for a moment I see the scroll arrow and if I clickl soon enough the page scrolls a bit.  It doesn't seem easy to scroll by clicking on the up arrow while S_E is running.



Any chance of being able to configure the shortcut keys?  In my case I try not to have the Windows key be used for things outside of the system.



After control-right-clicking on the earmark square I see a little window with some numbers -- is there currently some way to tell which (if any) earmark might be closest to the page being currently displayed?

I think the page numbers are not being fully displayed here (e.g. for a two-digit page number I only fully see the first digit).

Supposedly no restart required either -- though a bit complex-seeming after first installation.

Not really, you click on the icon in the Addon bar and then select when you want to have that sites cookies terminated, (or not).

Well, being presented with a new browser window with a fair bit of text to go through counts as seemingly-complex to me -- even if it doesn't turn out to be complex smiley

Was able to create a single earmark but a subsequent creation attempt lead to a crash of SumatraPDF -- but this was under Wine.

That is a nifty-looking device!

What I thought I saw in that video was the bit about scanning multiple name cards at the same time -- that does seem applicable.



Thanks also for the pointer to OpenCV, am intending to take a look.

Any chance of a similar tool that tries to automatically detect "rectangles" and crop each of those results into individual results?

Some cards (especially RealTek) don't play well. Intermittent, random disconnects.

...

If there are any ideas we can split this off to new thread.

One idea is to investigate the following:

Of course this is not wholly on topic but ... please Linux people fix various Linux wifi issues so that I can dump Windows even more quickly.

What's the issues?

Yes, what are the issues?

145  DonationCoder.com Software / FARR Plugins and Aliases / Re: FScript Javascript SDK - Write FARR plugins in javascript and more. on: October 16, 2013, 06:41:11 AM
Not sure if I'm following and I don't have much FARR context in my head, but If you mean something like:

1. User takes some action which leads to a plugin getting FARR to display some HTML (generated by the plugin say)
2. User clicks on a link or button in the HTML
3. The plugin executes some code in response

Then IIUC the answer is "yes".

An example of this type of situation is in the CommandPromptHere plugin.

Look in the file named callbacks/onSetStrValue.js for the following code path:

  onSetStrValue ->
    handleStartConfig ->
      displayConfigHTML ->
        buildConfigHTML

buildConfigHTML generates HTML which is displayed by FARR.

Within that generated HTML is a FORM element with an action that begins with "farr://pscommand".  When a user submits the associated form, the plugin gets called by FARR's pscommand mechanism.  Specifically, the plugin handles this request via onSetStrValue in callbacks/onSetStrValue.js:

  onSetStrValue ->
    handleConfig

Does that help at all?

since Adobe themselves don't support Flash on Android, it should be a wake-up call for video content providers to get themselves updated.

I hope you're right smiley

as i said earlier, Java is a different proposition but thanks for reminding me about the portable setup.

Don't know how much help it might be but there's jPortable and jPortable Launcher from PortableApps as possibly useful pieces as part of some solution.  FWIW, I am using batch files in combination with at least jPortable IIRC.

Are you trying to avoid the PDF file format or Adobe's Reader (or Acrobat)?  I use the file format but neither of Adobe's PDF-related applications (SumatraPDF and PDF-XChange Viewer seem to cover my needs).

Flash I'm installing less often, but haven't eradicated yet -- there are some sites I visit that don't really function well without it (hoping that will change but I'm not holding my breath).  One thing I've tried is to have one browser that has Flash set up for it and another that doesn't -- I try not to use the browser with Flash set up for it very much in an attempt to mitigate risk.

Java (or more specifically the JDK), I have a portable installation of and AFAICT it doesn't get invoked without my knowing it.
