Wow Kiss
I couldn't view either of those, but did find this one:

It's a brilliant idea and she is just great!
I cant vote over this side of the water, but wish her the best of luck !

I guess the easiest way is via the quick-capture-bar which is docked on the top of the screen.
Click the button there with tooltip "Select post-capture options ..."
this menu will show:

that should do it !

Solved
should have used the brain a bit more before posting embarassed

Simply select the files:
  • alt+enter to show properties
  • press 'r' for read-only
  • return out

[edit] Note: I found a solution for this case (post#2 simply marking files as read-only), but very interested in any other suggestions - also those that will only work in one file manager! [/edit]

I'm looking for a simple way to mark files as "done".

I would like to use a method that is part of the file and visible in various file managers, so I guess changing one of the file attributes would be the way to go (e.g. archive it - is that the same as making it read only? that would be fine).
The attribute could be easily displayed in detail mode in any file manager.

So I reckon using a file manager would probably be the easiest route (?)
I currently have XYplorer and Dopus installed, so could use either of them, (or windows explorer).

I did do a search online, and in both help files, but my search-fu isnt very good, so didnt come up with anything helpful. (Note: I'm a fairly basic user.)

TIA for any suggestions smiley

Been using PDFCreator for years and can recommend it.
http://www.pdfforge.org/

Pros:
# you can make PDFs up to publication standard on this (yes I've successfully sent stuff to press)
# great control over options
# it has gracefully managed graphics that even Acrobat struggled with (YMMV)

Cons:
# Terrible interface (although they've just introduced a completely new/different version that I havent yet tried)
# trys to install crapware (from that article, it sounds like it's not the worst)


I see PrimoPDF also makes pre-press PDFs, must have a look

I'm trying to find page-size of PDF's - PDFInfo shows the page size in points** - I found very little info in the Xpdf page - do you know if this can be changed to metric (or anything else) within PDFInfoGUI ?

I'd have to write the conversion routines myself in order to do that.

no, thanks Skwire, dont bother - it's not worth it - in fact it wouldnt even help me that much....
I have to print a lot of PDF's and can only print A3 or A4 at a time (only one tray in printer). I've worked out a workflow:
I open files and print the bigger ones; I copy the A4 ones into another folder for later printing. I think I can even batch print the A4 ones.

Dunno. You see it or you don't. Or maybe it's just me? That seems to be the consensus, so I think I'm gonna drop it before it starts going in circles.

if we were having this conversation in a pub, you would have to buy at least the next two rounds tongue

^ I get a sense this is leading somewhere?

Could it be plans to introduce surveillance of the parents to ensure that they do what you, or the government, or whoever, want and think correct?  smiley

You're railing against things that I'm not reading in this thread. No one here said they're 'automatically qualified' (or did I miss something?).

If: "Parents. Only. Exclusively." :then: Why so?

Related:
# we all know that the state does intrude there occasionally, with mixed results.
# society has largely lost it's traditional structure where an extended family and close-knit community could compensate for parents' lack of experience.

I believe that most people at some level love their parents (even if they have reason to hate them too).

Yeah, I think it's a case of use it or dont.
Using it, and bitching about it at the same time *is* a bit hypocritical.

FWIW I dont use FB anymore.

How do I know that?  Because I did it as a kid

@E - I think that's a case of YMMV. Something that varies from family to family. That sort of thing hasn't been an issue in my family. Maybe it's luck. But we don't happen to think so. We like to think it's more how we bring our kids up. And our approach may not work for everybody since each family situation is different. So it goes.

I'm (still) in the odd position of agreeing with your recommendations, but being a bit overwhelmed by your attitude.

1) we dont get to choose our parents (I dont think anyways). If you got to grow up in a 'good' family, that's something you can be thankful about.
2) most parents do their best; if the parents have flaws, the children in turn tend to try and correct them in the next generation - of course this can be a bit 'reactionary' e.g. going from over-disciplined to being too lax, etc. etc.

This is being advanced in the name of "the children." Grin

^that on it's own is not a reason to knock it either.

I suspect you dont have children from your response above (only those of us without kids could be so idealistic I think), but I still think you made good points thumbs up

Too bad it's not available on my tablet. I'll have to check it out once I'm off the rack in a couple hours.

not sure why exactly you cant see it, but it was blocked here, so I found an alternative:

Fantastic! Thank you tomos for such a friendly and accurate response. The script works great. I'm going to love this site.

great :-)

Is Idle Close a finished download? I've tried the JustCloseSomeTasks and ProcessGuard but those don't do what brotherS outlined above in his code. I don't know what that is written in or I'd just use that. Sorry for bumping an old post, I'm new to the forum today.

hi burntpepsi smiley
looks to me that post #14 was the nearest to a solution - save the script in that post with an .ahk file-ending.
Download AHK - it's portable, so you can put it anywhere.
http://ahkscript.org
Open the saved script with AHK - it will show in the tray.

disclaimer: I havent tried the script, so not even sure what exactly it does...
