I think the best would be to have two separate groups for raster (called i.e. "photo editor") od vector graphics.

absolutely, unless they've changed directions drastically lately

Hah, funnily enough, further down the list
> BEST FREE VECTOR GRAPHICS PROGRAM
> Inkscape - great open source vector graphics editor, a free alternative to the expensive Adobe Illustrator or Corel Draw.

no alternatives offered smiley

have you tried MouseAltTab available at WEP's page http://wep.dcmembers.com/
here's the AHK http://wep.dcmembers.com/malttab.ahk (also available as exe there)

it has #1 & 5 on your list. Also shows icons.
#5 (sorting) only on available fields = windows & exe names
I dont know what "Sticky Alttab mode" is

Overall I would really like to consider InfoQube as a tool, however if the calender and scheduling integration requires Outlook for functionality that is a difficulty for that app.

I never said that. No-one said that. That is not the case smiley

(edit] apologies, that was a bit brief - calender and scheduling integration does not require Outlook. I believe the plan is to synch with Outlook and with Google Calendar, and as I say portable things (that I know nothing about) [/edit]
5232  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Good tool to batch edit EXIF date/time data? on: June 06, 2009, 03:55:31 PM
this one http://jpgtime.learsy.com/ - the name isn't quite clear from the site
Time Stamp Modifier for JPEG Files

The program enables to set the file time stamp (i.e. date and time) from the EXIF date/time and also enables to shift the time stamp of multiple files.
...

It also enables to select multiple files in a list and shift their date/time by a time slice - by single click you can increase/decrease seconds, minutes, hours, days, months or years.
-
I've just used  it to change 'modified date' to time photo was taken via Exif data - worked very nicely -  I believe it should do what you're looking for easily as well (portable, donationware)

you guys must have superwide screens :\
oh,
I didnt  have to scroll sideways earlier - maybe that's a disadvantage of tables tellme ? (if so, shoot me Paul..)
Actually,
it looks like the tables keep the width of the largest image in the table . . I suppose a solution would be to thumbnail the images embarassed

one minor comment re display:
quotes use a smaller font size which makes them more difficult to read - minor as I say these days cause I just zoom the page. Another possible option for future posts would be to use table:-  [table][/table]

IQ is most probably InfoQube - the app formerly known as SQLNotes -
I was going to write a spiel about it but see you mention it . .
actually I had it already written & then saw your mention of it; but I may as well post it anyways!

InfoQube / IQ was formerly known as SQLNotes -
large thread here at DC and home is here. I'm not sure why integration with something (outlook) should put you off - it's just a bonus for those who do want it.

It's still in beta (completely stable though - been using it over a year now and have never lost any info) - pros and cons - e.g. pro: you can influence the development, request features; e.g. con for you: calander not fully integrated with 'PIM' side yet.

Using the Calendar is safe, only thing to keep in mind is that appts must be entered / modified only in the Calendar and not in a grid. Apart from that, it is usable, including alarms and recurring events. No need to redo things when it gets updated.

It's got a learning curve (also because the UI tends to get updated after other changes) but very worthwhile IMO. I believe he has ambitous plans for the calendar but I dont use it at all myself so cant really comment on it.

5240  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Looking for: Scan and convert to PDF, but simple on: June 02, 2009, 05:15:25 PM

they have a portable version so might be easy to try out . .

well I had reson to try this out myself tonight and it's far from single click and there's no options to email - but it looks good for creating multi-page PDFs using scanner or importing images. Very basic but works well at what it does (no resizing or cropping of images.)
5241  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Buying/installing/experiencing Adobe - PIA on: June 02, 2009, 10:19:34 AM
I thought I should clarify the install process - it had a list of 6 or 7 installs - some seemed probably irrelevant (media player, adobe air) but I decided to chance leaving it at default.
MyUninstaller (NirSoft) lists 36 installs smiley Some programmes have two installs in different locations (Program files & Common files or different parts of the registry). This might not be a bad thing - maybe it makes it easier to modify aspects of the programme via updates.

Also there was something funny about the download - oh yes, I could only use Internet Explorer tellme - these days!!
I dont have noscript running but it wouldnt work in FF and they had very firmly warned beforehand to preferably use IE

Ironically, considering their favouring of IE, the download came in 7z format, that tickled me smiley

I downloaded Online Armor on May 26th from Giveawayoftheday.  While attempting to clean up my PC I accidentally deleted the program.  I did manage to re-install the program but my license is missing from my PC too.  Can anyone help with this problem?

or install the free version - it's good, I'm not sure what you'd be missing
5244  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Buying/installing/experiencing Adobe - PIA on: June 02, 2009, 07:17:17 AM
Adobe Sad

[edit] I was indecisive whether to put this in Company Complaints section because it's a fairly biased rant (feel free to move if you want) - everything is true that I say here -  but it's mostly medium to minor (?) things that add up to a (s)crappy customer experience. I'm spoiled by only having had experiences with relatively 'small' (or very small) software companies/developers in the last few years. I sort of feel like I've entered the Dilbert-land of the big corporations. [/edit]

I finally invested in Illustrator CS4 - an upgrade from Freehand - I do also have a rarely used copy of Illustrator 8 from about 10 years ago installed.

I'm pissed off in the first place having to change to what seems so far like a much less user friendly programme (in terms of speed of use).
The whole experience has been full of minor headaches, biggest being it's broken my older Photoshop install - well done Adobe, that's your app Wink

Second biggest being dealing with their website - PIA user experience. Real slow too.
They have a really weird website btw - a lot of pages load, are blank, then they reload - this bit doesnt bother me, but it looks like a workaround of something and I keep getting that feel off of Adobe. Try this one for example

Third being trying to customise preferences and Shortcuts - PIA UI - exactly the same as the one in the ten year old version (preferences) huh I havent gotten much further than that so far to be honest.

But what really got me today is - after giving up on fixing Photoshop I went to uninistall it and I see that the Illustrator 'install' consists of 36 [yes THIRTY-SIX] different installs - I just let it do the default install because I didnt know what was necessary and what not (and I wasnt told). In fact the whole download/install experience is very dumbed down with very-few-to-no options to customise or even use you own download manager for gods sake - they install one for you  . . I  m u s t  resist  s a r c a s m  here - why? I guess cause I was pissed off with Adobe even before I began this whole thing and now they're fulfilling all my negative expectations - do I have the 'power' to make them this bad lol or are they simply doing their own messy thing . .

I was hoping to do a first-look mini-review of Illustrator but it's turned into this Sad  - I also wanted to do a mini-review of Jaws PDF Creator and they completely changed the product the week after I bought it LOL
not my mini-review month smiley

bloggers (well, any online writers) that don't put the publishing date on their articles and posts.

5246  News and Reviews / Image Manager Shootout / Re: Xnview vs. IrfanView - integrity issue examined on: June 01, 2009, 04:29:44 AM
Second thing: it does not solve sorting order problems but having it as Lister plugin I can, at least, limit images sets to marked entries only.

that's a bummer -
I'd love a filemanager with a decent associated/integrated viewer that would solve that problem.
Maybe I should ask in that filemanager thread
5247  News and Reviews / Image Manager Shootout / Re: Xnview vs. IrfanView - integrity issue examined on: May 31, 2009, 02:34:38 PM
For convenience I have Microsoft Office Picture Manager 2003 as default; it is by far the fastest to use when I need to crop or resize an image.

For me Imagine plugin plays such role but that's because I am Total Commander junkie Wink

EOT

lets see, hmmm EOT, lol - end of transmission I guess?

I'm wondering does having the viewer as a plugin solve the problem that most (independent) viewers have of not following the sort order of the files in the file manager? -
I mean (e.g.):
if you sort by date the viewer will still work it's way through the images as though they were sorted by file name

. . but I wasn't going to pay so much over the odds just because I live in the UK.  It's a connected world now, and Nuance and other vendors will have to accept that.  I bought a license for Able2Extract instead.

you should let them know so they might change their ways . .
I e-mailed Nuance.  They didn't reply.   Angry

good on you Thmbsup
not so good on them . . and at least you had the choice of a similar product (hopefully equally good or better)
