5176  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Has anyone tried Perfect Utilities ? on: September 08, 2009, 06:53:57 AM
mentioned in this and previous post fwiw

I used some of the functions of Perfect Utilities with no problems. Most of the other functions, which are disabled by default, I use other programs for. I also didn't use all the functions that are enabled by default.

There are some things in the program that are unique. Just have to look around a bit to get familiar with it.

[ . . ] apologies if the above post came off rude.
no, no need, it didnt at all

I'm going to apologise in advance for this question smiley :
do you have a summary of your current system(s) anywhere on dc ? (apologies cause if it's there I should probably know about it)

It will be interesting to reread your post after I've tried AF again.

I still can't fathom what's awesome about AutoFocus even with the Revised version but when I read it, the model of the site immediately came to mind.

have you tried it yet Paul?!

and no,
I'm not saying it's awesome smiley it actually hasn't suit my needs for the last while anyways, but I'm looking forward to trying out the 'new' version and I guess I just pointing out you cant really knock something like that till you've tried it Wink


edit/ going to give it another go . .
5179  DonationCoder.com Software / FARR Plugins and Aliases / Re: KlipKeeper (A FARR2 Plugin by hamradio) on: September 07, 2009, 03:12:20 PM
Okay, I'm confused. What do I need to do? ...
siouxdax,
it looks  like you need to download the dll on this page
http://e.craft.free.fr/farr/FScript/1.19/

then:

1. grab the latest fscript.dll from ecaradec's page [link above]
2. rename it to fscript.dll
3. exit farr
4. replace any copies of fscript.dll in your farr plugins subdirectories with this new one.
(if you have multiple fscript-based plugins installed, there may be more than one copy of the dll! dont leave any files like fscript_bakup.dll or fscript.dllbackup in the directories or those dll's might get loaded)
5. restart farr

I think it should be clear up to step #4 at least?
If you've trouble there finding those dlls report back & someone will help

Hi All,

I'm from the UK too (as per Carol above, and zriding).  From Basingstoke in Hampshire.  And for that reason, I see no point in sending a photo!

Whats the ratio roughly of where people are from on here?  I assume the majority are from the U.S?

well the people who are active in the forum are from all over really which is nice - there's no bias I find (bias = not quite the right word but does the job I think)
What the problem with Basingstoke and photos - not so nice?
If you did want to post a pic there's always the Show us the View Outside Your Window thread smiley

as a low-tech user I'm happy about #1 -
I know I occasionally get notice to upgrade but I never keep track - well, every now & again I go to Secunia's site and get them to check.
Java then leaves the older versions (JavaRa is a godsend to tidy up), cant remember does adobe do the same with flash..


hmm hmmmph hmmmm . . . big fish LITTLE fish . .    smiley
5183  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: SC: Discussion of Scanning Functions on: September 06, 2009, 12:12:02 PM
#2 - great
#3 - 'save as' -  what I understood from SC "save copy as" is that it will save in regular folder anyway & you have the option to save a copy elsewhere (or save copy in same folder). Say I scan into Pshop, I can save as -> folder of choice, there's only one copy (okay, there may be a temp one in temp folder as well).  Wasnt any big deal, but it would be nice to simply save scans elsewhere in folder of choice - me, I usually save them in a different folder each time I'm doing a batch of scans but obviously moving them around isnt a problem smiley

Another one:-
#5 - it would be great if Ctrl+O would show whole page (i.e. Auto-fit) if nothing is selected. (I know Crt+F is 'Fit-View' but this shows image much smaller than 'Auto-fit')
5184  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: SC: Discussion of Scanning Functions on: September 06, 2009, 11:13:05 AM
havent used this since it was being tested

Scanning a few pages today:

1) I missed advanced options on saving as PDF - it saved a 100dpi image as a 2 MB file - (I think it didnt compress the image?) - would be great if I could regulate that on saving (or in options)
2) is there any capability to change the dpi of an image in SC? I see resize but occasionally might want to simply change resolution [very much an icing request smiley]
3) option to simply 'save image as' would be nice - nearest option is 'save copy as' which eventually will involve spring cleaning
4) when I scan I dont see any progress window - I see you have one in screenshot - scratch that: it works at TWAIN setting - I get a flash of my scanner software logo, then it comes up as normal (Not using 'native scanner dialog')


Everything (auto-rotate/sharpen/WB) working very nicely smiley -
for this run the large PDF's drove me away though Sad

Hi Jesse, I am glad you got my postcard but I am very cross that the naughty post men screwed it up so much.

5186  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What is your preferred font? on: September 06, 2009, 07:24:11 AM
Ariel was primarily designed to be a screen font.

I always thought Arial was a fairly straight rip-off of Helvetica,
but I see Wikipedia agrees with you:-

Quote
Though nearly identical to Linotype Helvetica in both proportion and weight (see figure), the design of Arial is in fact a variation of Monotype Grotesque,[3] and was designed for IBM's laserxerographic printer.[2] Subtle changes and variations were made to both the letterforms and the spacing between characters, in order to make it more readable on screen and at various resolutions.

I would be very interested in this as well -
-
over the next few months I'm finishing two big jobs and will need to print about a hundred TIFF files and literally hundreds of PDF files.
Ideally I would like to be able to print all the files in a selected folder and to be able to include sub-folders as well
but
if I had to move the files around in order to print them I wouldnt particularly mind  cheesy

There are already several GUI's for MyDefrag available, for example:


yeah,
there was a bunch of them for JkDefrag, some focusing on different aspects
For 'normal' use I found the Emro one the best but havent tried MyDefrag yet - will try that GUI, thanks yksyks smiley

also available in many other languages

Speaking of MyDefrag, I'm trying it out now. But it seems like it want scripts and you have to pick drives by category. 
...

doesnt sound very user friendly . .

"Take chances. Enjoy the moment. Have fun working towards the future."

Not that it comes close to becoming top productive material this way but you can post this anywhere and even when you have a bad day, you can still read it. (Which is the point of affirmations. Having a set of beliefs you can fall back to when you expect yourself to be the most unproductive.)

If you prefer something more tongue-in-cheek:

"Date the moment. Take the fun to the future."

you're making a good team there Deozaan & Paul cheesy

wonder how it compares to FileHamster - it does seem to be more aimed at text files or 'office' documents
looking at their site -
_______________________________

(Possible) Pros

  • Partial file backup (or whatever you call it) a pro as long as it works naturally!
    Archives are very compact because they are compressed and the whole file is only stored once with all other revisions only storing the changes to the file.
    http://www.ajcsoft.com/AJCRvArcFeatures.php
______________________________

(Possible) Cons

  • "Auto purge system prevents the archives from growing too large." (do I get to control that 'purging'?)
  • Hasnt been updated since 2007 Sad

.. Filebox Extender itself, which is free and is being updated, ...

- ehh? Free, yes, but not being updated.

Quote from: hyperionics
Please note: We no longer support FileBox eXtender. We make both the binary builds and source code available for download here for your convenience, please do not ask us for any support or improvements.

But "a terrific program" it is  thumbs up

well they said they werent updating it and then they brought out a vista compatible version . . but I guess there is no development as such

I just prefer PS Hot Folders  Wink
havent head of this one - but last updated May 2007 tellme (is it perfect!?)

I'm certainly happy myself at the moment with FileBox Extender
