If the extra window has focus, it stays on top even when another window has focus - is this intentional? I find it confusing.

Esc will get rid of the window, but I tend to often just click in the background window I want to use. This normally doesnt work great for me: the GoogleTranslator+ window stays on top and becomes almost transparent. I dont think this is a good idea, it just gets in the way - I forget it's there and click on it unintentionally. I think it would be better if it just worked like a normal window. What do you think?

I find using the same hotkey for Translate and Look-up-definition not ideal. I realise that I can toggle the "Look-up-definition" via button first; but I think it would be easier to simply have two hotkeys - one for each (?)
=> would that mean having two buttons instead of a toggle button? Press the button for the action (e.g. Translate).
Currently the F4 hotkey does not have a button for the action. I think it would be good if it did.

Minor: when giving a definition, it would be nice if the defined word were shown at the beginning.

Great progress thumbs up

eh, how do I get the "Look up definition" ?
I presumed it was just a case of clicking on the search icon - but nothing happens here.
I tried it with just one word in the box or with the word selected, without success.


EDIT// got it - press F4
 Will work with it a bit

^ I dont want to get bogged down by this, but he was saying this in a genuinely humble manner rather than boasting about it - almost like he didnt have much to do with it, consciously at any rate. [edit] In fact he came across as a little disillusioned that it just happened in the early days. Disclaimer: I'm not a 'fan' of his, just like some of his early music. [/edit] I know most songs are written and rewritten, but some just come like that - I've heard other musician/writers say that too e.g. Townes Van Zandt.

Good interesting post 40, thanks thumbs up
Re Dylan, yeah, I was just talking about the lyrics smiley
I have heard him say that in a few interviews - that the lyrics just flowed for most of those early classic tracks. Of course that doesn't make them any better, or worse, than lyrics that someone worked on for months.

Thanks for the 'intellectual' explanation - be curious what SB has to say there. I have negative associations with that word. Which is stupid. It's just a word. But it is helpful to define it a wee bit at least, in a context like this.

Actually I'm not 100% sure that's the same book - it's named "The Code Book: The Secret History of Codes and Code-breaking [Englisch] [Taschenbuch]"
got to it from this page for the hardback book (which lists the title as above)

hi mouser
occasionally I open the main CHS window and search for older clips which I copy to the clipboard. These do not show in the QuickPaste list at all, which makes it pretty awkward to actually use them, except on an individual basis.

Could this be changed?

I think when music tries to be intellectual, it takes away from itself musically. Intellect and music don't really mix. Lyrics can be intellectual, but even there I'm not so sure - I guess it depends on your definition of 'intellectual'. Were Dylan's early lyrics intellectual? I don't think so, he says they just poured out of him.

Take Bowie for example. I was listening to some of his albums last week. With a few notable exceptions, Bowie was at his best, when he was most 'poppy' and accessible. Obviously, your opinions may vary. A lot of the other music listed here was great, but hasn't really stood the test of time for me...

I'm not a musician. I do learn songs/sing (never in public!), and since I started that, I have a much better appreciation of a good song. I mean the song could be done in a style I might hate - but I notice it as a good song - whereas before I started actually learning songs myself, I would have just thought: crap.

I do notice that with musicians - they often chose music that I wouldn't chose, and as a music lover, I wonder why. But I suspect it's like me with the singing - they have an ear for something that I don't have, because I don't understand the music in the way they do.

...Stupidity rampant... The problem with the price of gas...is the price of gas. Period. A bunch of greedy cartels want people bleed dry so they're just going to take what they want because nobody is stopping them.

well today I 'tanked', as they say here :p
I just converted it:
1.56 euros a litre ('Super' 95) = 8 dollars a gallon at today's exchange rates.
In the last while it's usually over 1.60 a litre, got it today cause it was 'cheap'.
So, whoever is screwing ye, is doubly screwing us over here tellme

Comments, and a Couple of Queries (in Italics) below:

#(n)#all#2014-06-04#Auto save on exit {font size, source language, target language} to configuration file (GoogleTranslator+.ini)
it now remembers source and target languages thumbs up; it does not remember font size; could it remember window size?

#(n)#all#2014-06-04#Comes with notification icon
looking good thumbs up

Quote
#(n)#all#2014-06-04#Hot key to hide (ESC), show (SCROLL - global), enable scan (PAUSE - global)
1) Esc works well.
2) I dont have a Scroll key on my (qwertz Logitech) keyboard - but I have two 'Insert' keys - and the one near the Pause button works. I'm not crazy about the Insert key as it can change the typing behaviour in my word processor. But it does work.
3) Pause key is taken by mouser's FARR. I've been using Pause for that for years. It's one of the most popular apps here too... What does 'Enable scan' do anyway?

Bug:
it doesnt remember the F6 language setting on closing:
always starts with [English] <=> [Vietnamese]
144  Other Software / Announce Your Software/Service/Product / Re: Translate Anything, from Anywhere with #GoogleTranslator+ on: June 04, 2014, 04:31:59 AM
Thanks ego!
I like it and it works well here too thumbs up


Would it be possible to have it automatically translate text in any language to a user-chosen default language? This default language would also automatically be translated according to the settings.
In your case, all languages could be translated to Vietnamese. Vietnamese could be translated to e.g. English.
You would then need two settings:
        1) [*] => [Vietnamese]
        2) [Vietnamese] => [English]


Also, to facilitate easier access:
  • could it minimise or close to the tray?
  • maybe a universal hotkey** to restore it's window. Or even better, a hotkey that will restore window and translate already selected text :-)

** would have to be customisable I guess

Judging by this thread - GIMP script to batch split + rotate TIFF images,
ImageMagick might be your answer.
But you would need to ask at their forum I guess.

There is scripting for gimp as well e.g. http://gimpscripts.com/

(I dont have any experience with these myself.)
147  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Image Append - Batch on: June 02, 2014, 07:41:23 AM
I now need to stack the photographs Top over Bottom.

I do not need to stitch them, even though I have provided a reasonable overlap of text.

I just need one above the other, possibly with a separating line

There must be no scaling or re-compression as this may affect the image

Can you give an example there - it's not clear to me what exactly you want to do - is it to create a large image showing all the photos from one paper? If so, how many pages/images would that be?

Can you photograph in Tiff format? (I've never used it this way, but tiff format can be multi-page; also has the advantage of lossless compression and lossless save/re-save. You could also convert to two bit tiff ['lineart'=just b/w, no grey] to reduce filesize, but would lose quality going there.)


I have looked in the forums, seen a few ideas, and the one most promising, broken link!

=> which thread/app/link?

Yeah I did do one of those. But I thought those got deleted eventually. I didn't have any problems yet and I figured Stoic's comment talked about months later.

yeah, that's the choice I guess:
