I'm not particularly recommending InfoQube for a quick and dirty solution - although this is reasonably easy to do **
But any PIM should be easily able to create an outline, and many will do export of some sort.
I'd also recommended the free ToDoList to Contro lately - not sure what type of export that does though. (Search for that here for link.)

Something like the attached would be nice. It's a html export from InfoQube.
open in IE - allow ActiveX controls (as asked bottom of page by IE)
-
You can then expand and collapse levels as wished. It's not clear though which levels are expandable when they are collapsed.
I used use this feature a lot - but havent in a couple of years so I'm no longer familiar with the settings.

Here's what you should see when fully expanded:

Tried it a while ago but I already have Artrage and it seems to do pretty much the same:

Curious: is Artrage also vector based?

Do you mean you want [1] to create a text 'tree' listing of an *actual* folder hierarchy -
or do you [2] want to create a 'mock' hierarchy.
(Or is it something else again?)

And 'extract a screenshot of it' ?? - you're hopping all over the place here tellme
I think it might help if you explained in more detail what exactly you want to do.

Reading again, it sounds like #2 -
why not use any PIM or any programme that'll allow you to create an outline?

had a very quick look at netbooks in a shop today.

And yeah,
10.1" is way too small for windows desktop :-)
13.3" netbooks were the first size that seemed really usable to me for desktop.
14.6" was the next size up that they had in stock - it's a nice size, but not very portable.

With netbooks @13.3" and smaller, the 16:9 ratio kills it for me - it's just soooo narrow heightwise Sad
Many of the builds have space for a 16:10 screen, space that was covered with glass in some models - dead space unfortunately e.g.

(review link in image - I'm not sure why they think it's reasonable @ €500, but that's unfortunately the state of affairs here - but that's veering very off-topic...)

I've had mixed feelings about the discounts/giveaways in recent years, for two reasons:  First, without a consistent, sustained effort that lasts indefinitely, it doesn't gain traction or attention.  The second has more to do with an existential struggle with the nature of the site, and what we should be focusing on, and what we do well, and the (non-financial) costs associated with trying to do too many different things..  While at the same time it pains me that this is yet another example of folks volunteering to do something for the benefit of the site and me being less than enthusiastic.  This gets at part of what i think we need to find a solution to.

You mention a few things there that jump out at me:

         # the nature of the site
         # what we should be focusing on
         # and what we do well


could you expand on these a bit?

FWIW, like many people, I'm often better at developing existing ideas, than at coming up with new ones - that's (also) part of why I'm interested in how you see things here.
8  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: DonationCoder 10th Anniversary plans, ideas, changes, fundraiser? on: March 03, 2015, 09:10:21 AM
When are you planning for the fundraiser to begin?  And would we be interested in discounts/giveaways to go along with the fundraiser?  The well has pretty much dried up, but I might be able to get some of our discount heroes to help us out...

I can think of a suggestion (for a discount) but maybe best not to start making suggestions here?

^ah okay, thanks Brahman. (I just saw the dollar sign and thought 'USA')
10  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Screen Calculator: Monitor, Mobile & Notebook PPI and Screen Size Spreadsheet on: March 03, 2015, 05:47:20 AM
Yeah, I'm worried about the size too - but cant find anything bigger, and as good, in the same price range here... Mostly they're either cheaper with a crappy screen, or much more expensive with much higher specs and (maybe) a good screen.
Might be best to wait another while like you say, and see what comes on the market.

I always wish the screen would be bigger to reduce eye strain and therefore I am now eyeing an 11.6 inch Onda Vii6W dual boot (Android/Win8.1) tablet with keyboard.

damn, ye get such good offers over there :-(
- I cant find any products by Onda in europe ... wait, I tell a lie:
it is available on ebay - shipped from NZ Oz though...
Maybe I will wait smiley

^yep, that's what I was trying to figure out (I was suprised they had the same model with different ratios).
But also the ppi - not sure if higher is necessarily better if I want to use the desktop on that size screen

PDF format is designed to be unflexible - it is meant to be the end product - and to look the same for everyone.
Editing was not even on the list when they designed PDF ;-)
If you know what programme made the PDF you *might* be able to use that programme.
Otherwise as above.

Have a look at this video Ken:
http://www.donationcoder....sts/dc/3ds/sc27/sc27.html
within the first 30 seconds you get the basics for starting up with this app

(it does go a bit quick - but you can pause it or manually rewind it)
17  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Beginner needs help on: March 01, 2015, 01:48:34 PM
Thanks Tom but I'm still confused. I tried hitting print scrn and a small version of Screenshot captor came up showing the full screen underneath it. There was a small "target" in view but I could not do anything with it nor any ability to select a specific region (like the dragging the mouse thing.) If I just double click on the icon in my tray, I get a full version of Screen shot but now way to view the image beneath it. Sorry to be so dense but I really appreciate your help.

Ken

okay, what comes up is a dialogue window with various options - you've got to select one of these e.g.
'Save image but hide' will simply save the image and you can look at it later via the main window;
or
'Save image and show' will save the image and show it in the main window, allowing you to edit it.

=> there is also an option at the bottom of that dialogue:
"After next capture:" [show this dialogue/show main window/stay minimized]
If you dont want to see dialogue again, and always want the main window to show or hide - select the appropriate option there first.

Hope that helps

Dear Mouser. Thanks a bunch.

hi hopken,
another option that can be nice to use is:
if you just use Prtscr, and then open the Screenshot Captor main window (double-click tray icon) - the window in the foreground of the screenshot will be automatically selected: you can then crop - or mess around with the selection size first.

20  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Looking for program that can copy folder hierarchy with checkboxes and size est. on: March 01, 2015, 11:06:47 AM
[Re: Dopus]
Do note that while you can turn on Calculate folder sizes, it'll only do it for the parent, any sub-folders don't get calculated and aren't added to the running total in the Status bar, (as you can see from the bits I've highlighted - a folder with ~36MB of files but only ~10MB in the running total).

I don't know if there is a setting that will propagate the folder selection to included files, this would fix the total size selected discrepancy.

a workaround (after expanding the flat view) is:
  • Ctrl+A to select all items
  • the action 'Calculate Folder Sizes' (menu:Edit) will now work for all folders
  • then invert selection (Ctrl+I) to deselect all

What's also not ideal, is that ticking a folder does not automatically tick the contents of that folder, (yet those contents will copy). It's a bit ambiguous - also awkward if one wants to use the tick-boxes to select, say, 90% of those contents: you have to tick them on an individual basis (instead of select all contents by clicking on parent and then deselecting the unwanted 10%).
_________
Re: the Recreate folder structure dialogue - it does not get offered** if you copy only individual files from one 'level'. That may have been what confused me on my Win.8 laptop.

** EDIT// there's definitely something funny going on: now it is getting offered. I think there's a bug there somewhere as it didnt get offered in at least three copy attempts (just before writing this post).
21  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Looking for program that can copy folder hierarchy with checkboxes and size est. on: February 28, 2015, 03:58:17 PM
I believe Dopus can do this - but maybe you're looking for something more focused (?)
Other file managers may also be able to do this too.


Turn on 'Flat view/Grouped' (I've modified my toolbars and shortcuts - I think this under the 'Folder options' button) - you can now see the hierarchy and all files
Turn on check-box mode in folder options (see help for more info) - shows check-box for selection
=> select folders / files
copy/move
you will be asked if you want to recreate the hierarchy

Note: I'm not sure how this will work when simultaneously copying from various levels in the hierarchy (but presume it will work)
The default statusbar will show size of selected items

EDIT: see if anyone else chimes in here - this is not working for me on Windows 8.1 -
I am not getting asked if I want to recreate the hierarchy. (FWIW, I do get asked that when synchronising and when I then manually select what to copy.) Wont be able to check on Win.7 desktop till maybe Monday ...
22  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Pick a number between 1 and 10 on: February 27, 2015, 05:17:44 PM
You could do something like the imperial monetary system (£sd) that we had till 1970.
It starts with a penny (1d)
then you have a thrupenny bit,
then a 6 penny bit, then:
12 pence = 1 shilling
20 shillings = 1 pound (£1) = 240d (i.e. pence)

To complicate things further, there was:
four farthings or two hapennies to a penny,
a twobob (2 shilling) coin (=24 pence - but also 1 tenth of a pound (!)),
and two-shillings & six-pence (2.5 shillings = 30 pence) as a half-crown coin (even though the crown coin no longer existed)

Not sure what base that all is though undecided tongue

24  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Destroying your hard drive is the only way to stop this super-advanced malware on: February 26, 2015, 03:57:04 AM
Now that it has been discovered, I should think antivirus software could be written to at least detect it in action, followed by some kind of 'fix', possibly involving a redesigning of the HD firmware?

well, going by what's already been said...

Quote
Because the OS normally doesn't provide low level access to drive hardware to even an administrative user.

It's not just that -- if the malware tampers with the HARD DRIVE FIRMWARE, it can essentially make the hard drive return fake data, etc.  Even with the lowest level access to the hard drive, the hard drive firmware can hide any changes.  The only way to fix would be to reflash the hard drive firmware -- and it may very well be that the firmware changes make reflashing impossible via software.
There is no defense against this.

Its like a rootkit- that once it gets into your hard drive the only way out is to replace the drive controller with a known-good version and then very carefully salvage data without letting the virus be reactivated.

^Wondering is the problem with S3 or the software (or both)


I use S3 with Snycovery - but had already created the S3 account or bucket or whateveritis years ago using (I think) JungleDisk. So it was no problem AFAICR.
