Again today.

(much more expensive, it's 30 dollars, and per computer)
I'm not sure about Quick Jump, but Listary seems to be "per user" rather than per computer.   
Also it's $20, though coinsidently, they have it on BDJ today to $10.  http://www.bitsdujou...ftware/listary-pro-2

Looks pretty cool thanks for the share!

Got a hangup on Sophos...  I get lots of falsies from Sophos though... 

Looks like it'll be on BDJ again soon

It is not that expensive, is it?
In all seriousness; No, $20 is more than a fair deal.  And kudos to the developer for allowing full functionality in the free version too.   :D

Twice as that!

Does anyone know if there are currently any valid coupons for the pro version?
Looks like they had a 50% at bitsdujour a while back....

I must say, this is pretty cool!

Seems to work--Very Nice!
Thanks for Shareing  :Thmbsup:

Note that it seems to work better if you use an ICO that has only the appropriate sizes...

I applied a custom icon to xplorer2_ult.exe.  First I tried an ICO that had all standard sizes (16 .... 256) and PEIC crashed.  Did it again with a version of the ICO that had only 16, 32, 48, and it worked fine.  (using Win 7)

Clicking the link "RAR file" downloads a file called "PasteAsFile.rar."

Obscure Bug:
Make sure "Load last session at startup" is enabled.
Then load Help>>Example Sums>>Complex Sums.
Then close and restart OC.

Pretty cool idea!
Possible bug:  Select multiple JPGs >> convert to PNG >> first one converts as expected, then you get "Already exists: Overwrite?" message >> CLick OK

Why the countdown timer?

I think many of the free PDFs readers have "freehand" pens, highlighters, etc.

I was just dinkin' around with Acrobat, and it does appear that you can make the bottom margin huge.  When viewing the PDF, this will essentially make it smaller.  (Rather make it appear smaller)

Those are cute, but...
I'm not sure I would call them icons? Sure, they might come in (high-res) icon dimensions, and even in .ico files, but... I dunno, am I being overly pedantic?

A valid point.  Most folks who have attempted to define what an icon should look like have suggested that the image should relay some meaning as to the purpose of the icon itself...

Hey you never know:  If I was doing a big dissertation on the various characters of the cartoon series Futurama, and I needed to have different subfolders for my notes about each character....  And if I wanted custom images on those folders....  Well, I'd have it made!

Extra note: 
It occurs to me that I should reference the artist
Artist: PixelPirate (Lasse Salling) (Available for custom work)
Iconset Homepage: http://pixelpirate.d...t/Futurama-175960105

As if I wasn't paranoid enough already....

No doubt you've tried all the "Save As..." option in Word.

Very cool!  Thanks for the round up!

Truth be told--there are probably good freeware alternatives to any of these.
As I said above, I'm a long time fan of Photoplus and Drawplus.  I doubt that PP is any more powerful than GIMP.  DP is comparable to Inkscape or, I think.  DP has really nice shape-builder tools as well as good effects for makings outlines, bevels, shadows, etc.  Also it has a nice "cut-out studio."  (though GIMP also lets you do cut outs)

As folks have mentioned above, you'll get "special offers" such as the Uniblue stuff in the Serif installers.  Another annoyance is that you get a "register me" pop up that NEVER goes away unless you register.  Registering takes you to this screen:

If you ever uninstall/reinstall the software, you'll have to call again.  There's no way to just register online....  They'll use the opportunity to try and sell you more stuff.  No biggie though.  The guy is pretty polite, and you can haggle with him.

Also, they'll email paid upgrade offers.  Ignore the first half dozen or so offers, then they'll start emailing better offers. 

The extra spam that I get from them is not too bad.  No worse than Ashampoo. 

Another note:  If you're thinking of getting a webbuilding app, I learned about this somewhere (maybe here, or Gizmo's?)
Expression Web v4 is free.  The download link says "trial" but it's a full free version.  It seems like a pretty capable app.  I don't know much about making websites, so can't give an expert opinion.  Also I've never looked at the Serif Web one, so can't compare.

Probably the size is because of all the clipart, fonts, textures, tutorials, etc.  The apps do use up a lot of RAM when running, but they load fairly quickly.

I can't speak to the others, but DrawPlusX4 and PhotoPlusX4 are both really good products.
They just recently came out with PhotoPlus X6.  DrawPlus is currently at X5, but I imagine they'll come out with X6 soon.
PhotoPlus is  probably not any more powerful than the GIMP, though PP is probably easier to use. 
IMHO though DP is a stand-alone product.  It's been my go-to app for vector work for years.
