Did you have annotations turned off smiley

edit// xxx.12 - I see you've a new version - will check again //

hi Chris,
enjoying the expanding options thumbs up
Escape and minimise to tray working well here (win 7, x64)

Changing notes with Arrowkeys is broken - Ctrl+Leftarrow works but not Ctrl+Rightarrow. Likewise when the modifier is changed to Alt. Likewise also when Pagekey is used (PgUp works; PgDn not)

When making a new theme:
let's say I'm using Slate theme. I click 'Add' and the new theme reverts to the default.
I'm wondering would it be possible that the new theme could be based on the current theme?

Tray icon:
YMMV but I find the tray icon is visually heavy on the side black bar. I'd recommend making both bars black, or making the black one something equivalent to red e.g. blue or green. (Not sure of my terminology there.)

I hate penalty shoot-outs - it's no way to win and no way to lose - and yet, in the end, it would squeeze emotion out of a stone...

@saurabhdua - Re the godmode shortcuts, they dont sound like what you want - if you are still interested in them, a simple internet search should get you a couple of good articles and/or simple instructions on how to create. My link/instructions were on how get them into FARR.

@tomos - You can edit the themes using the new theme editor to make the backgrounds lighter. I can still make you a theme with lighter backgrounds if you wish.

I'm sorted - thank you very much !! (I had misread an earlier post, and thought I could only edit text colour with the editor)

PS download now xx.06 - the ini file is still in there FWIW.
186  Other Software / Announce Your Software/Service/Product / Re: Note5 on: June 26, 2014, 05:36:16 AM
^yeah, xx.5 here too.
Also, I presume this by mistake: you have an ini file in the download (I just copied everything over before I noticed it).

Missed out on a couple of versions - great advances/improvements going on thumbs up

I tried changing the text colour on my favourite theme (the default one) - but (for my eyes and monitor at any rate) the darker backgrounds are too dark for black text, but not dark enough for white text. I've started using the Slate theme - it's got the lightest backgrounds I think. First panel is still to dark for my tastes.
Request:
one theme where the backgrounds are all relatively light.

Bug: cant consistently reproduce it though undecided
  • 1) open Note5
  • 2) maximise the window
  • 3) open a note
  • 4) change focus to another note with the mouse; window jumps back to normal size
-
Edit: this seems to consistently reproduce it - for step 2):
maximise the window => normal window => maximise window => step 3, etc.

Cruise ship getting a remake - and an extension tellme
it's hard to understand if they just cut it apart, or was it desigened to be extensible. Worth watching full screen anyways.

Looks like something you'd find sold through an infomercial.

But wait...there's more! Order right now and you'll get not one, but two Magic Spaghetti Forks for the low price of $19.99!

Just imagine the beginning of it, where they show a series of idiots doing it "the old-fashioned way" and making a big mess, with spaghetti flying all over the place, hitting the walls. Because that's the infomercial's favorite tactic for convincing you that you have been doing things wrong, all your life.
 (see attachment in previous post)

at first I thought it was like one of those screwdrivers that turn when you push - now if I could attach a fork head to one of those...

Hey, is that Glen Hansard of The Frames?

I think he (Glen) and she (Maria?) have a band together. Or at least an album or two. Definitely worth checking out

I lived in Dublin when the Frames were in full swing (the 90's), but never saw them embarassed

Heard one of Glen Hansard's albums when passing a record shop a couple of years ago - didnt know who it was, but it prompted me to go in and buy it -

Not sure about the guys, but I am sure the women here can relate, although I have not done anything like this since the 80's, when most jeans did not contain any Lycra. The only thing missing from this video is the coat hanger, to pull up the zipper.  Grin

What interests me about this map is how the lightning is detected from such incredible range. I'm rather interested in finding out how the sensors actually work, since they seem to be able to register South Florida lightning from all the way up in New York.
ahh, I was wondering what those lines indicated - yeah, they're often the other side of the continent tellme

I did create the 'godmode' shortcuts a while back (and posted about it here somewhere) and put them in a folder checked by FARR. So I do get a selection of network related options:

194  DonationCoder.com Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: CHS: Links to Review and Comments - Add yours on: June 23, 2014, 04:48:05 PM
Surely the program works better than that, but I won't take the time to try to figure it out.  I'm using Ditto as my clipboard, which is also clunky in this area, but it works better "out of the box" than this highly touted Clipboard Help+Spell.  
if you are going to use Clipboard Help+Spell,
it is best to go though the options and see what is possible (a lot). Different people are going to want different settings, so if you want a worthwhile app...

You mention ditto:
Ethervane Echo is based on & inspired by Ditto - I like it a lot, but it clashes with an ancient app I need for work, so I gave up on it. Not sure if it's being actively developed any more though.

I use Syncovery, cant say I've ever copied such a large/complex amount, but I'd be surprised if it didnt manage.
Not sure how the free offers would cope.

I was trying to find a match schedule based around each group as opposed to an overview.
This one from the Telegraph is good, it's actually a 'predictor':

I have enjoyed the accent tag thing in YouTube in the past
e.g.
Scottish accent
Cajun accent

I generally find that people who 'do' accents are good - until you know the accents very well yourself, when it usually fails...

I feel like I'm being a fussy beggar if I say this, but I cant let it go:
if she's including Irish accents with the video title "British Accents", she may as well throw in American, Canadian, Caribbean, Indian, Australian, and a bunch of others...

Maybe you would have preferred she called it "accents of the British Isles?" tongue
