101  DonationCoder.com Software / N.A.N.Y. 2015 / Re: NANY Q&A about what software can be submitted on: October 08, 2014, 05:05:44 PM
Then again, there's another Ludum Dare coming up in December which I'm planning to participate in. That's close enough that perhaps I could combine LD31 with a NANY 2015 release. Though honestly I'm still not entirely sure how I feel about that idea, either.

that's a good idea, I'd say (why not?)
102  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Right-click tray icon displays SC and taskbar menu on: October 08, 2014, 04:16:13 PM
I actually noticed this before I updated SC on my laptop (Window 8.1 x64). Problem remained after update.

When I right-click the SC tray icon, the SC context-menu shows *behind* the taskbar, and the taskbar context-menu simultaneously displays on top.
Taskbar is on auto-hide.
No problem with other tray icons (CHS, FARR, CintaNotes, Dopus, Listary).

Previous version (I *think* it was 4.8.x):

[attachthumb=#]


latest version, 4.9.0:

the SC menu shifted a bit between versions but otherwise no difference.

I should come clean.  There was a problem introduced by latest smf forum update a few days ago; i just fixed it 5 minutes ago and was teasing you guys Thmbsup
So it should be working now.

hah, I was just going to report that it works fine in Win 8.1 (as opposed to 7 earlier)

^ Have a 'front' and 'back' for each card?

Printing - I like the focus on this.

If printing a bunch of 'cards' on one page, a couple of ideas below - may not be the direction you were thinking, but I'll throw them out anyway:

  • how about being able to emphasise importance via size? (You would then have the challenge of getting the rest to fit in the remaining space. It could be done portrait, either by rotating the card - or the text could be fit to the portrait orientation)
  • different colour backgrounds for different themes a la GTD or for different aspects or projects. Or maybe just a colour strip on the card to save on ink costs.)

Plain text will preview here - as soon as there's any BB code it stalls


EDIT// but if I go to edit it will no longer preview at all
106  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Recommend image comparison tool, please? on: October 08, 2014, 05:43:27 AM
A possible alternative is ExifPro Image viewer:
I dont have it installed on this machine - but IIRC it will only show two images side by side in the viewer.
But Zoom and drag are simultaneously applied to both images, which is great for getting in there and comparing details (how does that work in Faststone viewer?)

yeah, only two images can be compared, but the synced zoom/drag is a great help (Ctrl+Drag will pan just one image). It is paid (~20$ without VAT) and I cannot see if they have a trial (must have...)

Checking focus:

[attachthumb=#]

I think the synced zoom and pan is key to comparing images - but maybe not so essential to compare images where e.g. you've just changed the contrast etc. (?)

works fine here -- i wonder if you dont have some other tool that has assigned alt+w and is catching it..

yeah, thanks for checking - it's actually nothing to do with CH+S:
As a hotkey, Ctrl+Alt+W also changes to Ctrl+Alt+V in other apps ohmy

I'm looking at my AHK file but I havent modified that in years...
will pursue in own thread if I need more help with it.

Only got to update today: Win7 x64

I had long ago removed the hotkey to open the main window - the toggle key tempted me to add it again:
  • I am unable to add Ctrl+Alt+W it keeps changing it to Ctrl+Alt+V
  • Alt+W gets changes to 'None'
All other letter are working fiine as shortcuts, and the 'W is working correctly otherwise

It is a German keyboard which should not make any difference -

(Note: Ctrl+Alt+W was previously being used by Popup quotes, so I removed it there and closed popup quotes - but the problem remained)

Four images is good going I think.

I dont have it installed on this machine - but IIRC it will only show two images side by side in the viewer.
But Zoom and drag are simultaneously applied to both images, which is great for getting in there and comparing details (how does that work in Faststone viewer?)

I found it great on occasions where I had to go though a lot of photos and pick out the best (e.g. wedding pics).

Thanks superboyac - very interesting stuff Kiss
the hand-held controller is a great idea.

Dont have much to contribute, FWIW, I saw a couple of videos lately about the Wacom companion (I'm sure there's lots of them out there)


and a query about the Clip Studio offer (I work with vectors but in a very traditional manner; the idea of a 'drawing' being a vector is appealing though).
Query is: what's the difference between the 'Standard' and 'Pro' - going by the price difference I'd say that Standard is, eh, not up to much (?)

Definitely my kind of weird. Cool
really good as well thumbs up

Saw a Mongolian guy doing overtone in concert a few years back but cant remember his name...
These were easier to find: this group played regularly in front of the Pompidou in Paris a few years back. There's a few videos of them in YT so they must have been 'in residence' for a while.

a couple of years later they evolved into this:

(I saw them around the time of the first video)
[edit] the first group at any rate are called Altai KhairKhan [/edit]

Oh, yeah, doesn't work in full screen reply here either.  Just shows:

"Preview post
Fetching preview..."

odd - works perfectly here - could it be browser based, or just chance?
FF 32.03 here

hah - I added the attachment and tried again - now it's doing the 'fetching preview' thing - unsuccessfully.
Will try clicking post...

[...] At times though, Ethervane Echo suits my needs better. It was developed by a DonationCoder member. It hasn't been updated since 2012 (maybe 2013) but I've not had any problems with it.

Here's where you can download and find a link to the developer's site.

based on ditto, a sort of a new improved version smiley

hi Cuffy, if you dont want to post a screenshot, that's fine by me (honestly).
As others say though, it can be helpful, there could be something there you missed, or didnt think about.
Also, from a lazy pov, it's much easier to see something than to get something described. I help people over the phone occasionally, which is a nightmare because people dont know how to describe stuff. You seem to have done a pretty good job of that, and it is possible that a screenshot doesnt help at all beyond confirming your description, but here, people are usually able and willing to post a screenshot.


If you don't know the answer: don't reply  embarassed
Thanks anyway  cheesy

the smileys do soften that a bit, but [1] this is dc, if you're really looking for no answers except the right one, I dunno what forum I'd recommend.. and [2] this is me - I'm no expert, and sometimes my posts just take up space - but I also often notice things, and remember things, that others initially do not, so whether I can initially help directly or not is moot to me. So I'll ignore that and give it a thumb down

Finally, does stoickjokers suggestion about sorting help?

is that not usually blocked by the OS? (What's your OS?)

The first thread on the list there will offer a few options for looping:

Reducing the volume can be done by mp3gain:

I've re-uploaded a new version of 4.8.8 -- I'd appreciate if I could get as many beta testers using it (and reporting if everything works) as possible before I release it as a non-beta.

Thanks!

were there (important) changes?
I installed it about 6 hours ago - how do I know if I have the most recent version if they using the same number?
Or am I misunderstanding cheesy
TIA

Are you sure there is content in the folders you are looking at?
(as mouser says, when looking in a folder, it wont show content in it's subfolders)
125  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Scrolling capture? on: October 01, 2014, 01:39:49 PM
Right click on the SC tray icon and select the item "Grab Windows Object or scrolling window" or hit default hotkey of Ctrl+Shift+PrtScr and then select the area to capture and follow instructions.

The scrolling capture works but it is pretty complicated and not automated.  In the Hypersnap program it is a simple Ctrl+Shift+S command with the cursor positioned in the window.  It is limited to vertical scroll.  If you want to terminate the capture, just use the Esc key.

Pros and cons.


From what I've read, if you want to do captures in browser, you're better off using a browser add-on (than any screen capture app), or, in FF at least, there's an inbuilt way of doing it (there is a thread here somewhere ... see this dc post, and following posts).
