BTW, the next version of XYplorer (8.10) will have a full screen preview for HTML, MHT, URL, NWS, EML, and MSG files in perfect original size quality.
FYI, XY's full screen mode supports walking through the current list using PageUp/PageDown.

Sounds great!
I looked recently for 'viewer' in the XY forums but couldnt find anything and was thinking I'd start a thread about it - plans(?), wishes(!) but didnt get around to it so far.

I may as well say my spiel here -
I'd love to see a viewer that would
  • show files in the order they are sorted (no slideshow, just some key to move on or back) - which sounds like what you've planned thumbs up
  • allow easy zooming in to selected area (I can see this could be problematic if you're showing so many different formats) e.g. Ctrl+Drag to select area to zoom in - or Ctrl+mousewheel, but that usually doesnt allow zooming into particular area - could be really great if it zoomed into where the mouse arrow was


I dont think there's any file manager with the combination of those two in it's viewer (maybe DOpus 9, I havent tried that)

thanks for the heads up Hirudin

If I understand the comment/answer at the end correctly - means you will have to format and start afresh - not a bad idea anyway with a new OS install

note for (parts of) Europe - (or all?)

The pre-order discount prices are valid from June 26 through July 11 in the U.S. and Canada, but end July 5 in Japan. Customers in the U.K., France and Germany will be offered similar pre-order discounts starting July 15, said LeBlanc.

or is it only the 'bigger' countries are getting this . .

For free  Angry

I say some of those things in spoken language (well, actually only 'should of' and 'for free')
I understand the objections to all of them except 'for free' - I have a sense something's 'wrong' there, but would have trouble defining exactly what. Guess it's a paradox or something? Is it even 'correct' to say: I got it for ten dollars (?)
Actually I think it should be accepted into the official language tongue

goes well with  -

. . for the most basic word processing you can always use (in windows) WordPad.

Jarte is based on wordpad, but much better in terms of features
I used it a while and the only thing I missed was the ability to see the individual pages (is it standard view in word?)

edit/ they may (or may not) enjoy Jarte's quite different GUI (best to switch to 'Classic Layout' though as default may be too minimal). Another plus: no install - just unzip)

I am not sure how reliable these plugins are with TIFF compression because all TIFFs I've got are with LZW. You should try by yourself.
The first plugin recognises the LZW, jpeg, Packbits and zip/deflate formats.  The second one recognises the LZW, jpeg, and Packbits formats.

I'm not sure which plugin I got the custom column from - it's called 'compr' - but it's working  (LZW) and seems dependable so thanks for the help people Thmbsup

Maybe this will help you:
http://www.totalcmd.net/p...gring/wdx_image_info.html
http://www.totalcmd.net/plugring/wdx4i.html

I am not sure how reliable these plugins are with TIFF compression because all TIFFs I've got are with LZW. You should try by yourself.

I've installed the TC beta and I've figured out how to add the plugin but cannot figure out changing which columns show or how to use the plugins. (Can only find custom columns in Config where there is no list of columns - maybe there's something missing in the beta?)
I swear I've searched all over the place (wiki forum FAQs, oddly-I cant find 'help') and, I mean, I reckon it's got to be very simple to change which columns are showing but I'm damned if I can figure it out
(you know what it's like when you get a new app and havent a clue - remember?!? :p)

maybe I should be posting this in TC forum - I've registered there but it's too late here to make a diplomatic start in a new forum smiley - thanks for any tips!

EDIT/ I've figured it out, back later!
5285  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: tool to check if TIFF files compressed ? on: June 23, 2009, 10:35:19 AM
thanks all,
I'm only going to get a chance to look at IrfanView this evening - Library stuff looks technical but I've donwloaded and will look at it and see if I can figure it out

this site also has some info about the compression tags for TIFF.

http://www.awaresystems.b...tifftags/compression.html
Forgot to say compression is LZW.
I can post a couple of samples later as well

@Tomos: No TC plug-in to do this?

you're asking someone who just won a license but hasnt even had time to install it yet
-
anyone else know if there's a TC plugin to show if TIFF files compressed or not?
5287  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: tool to check if TIFF files compressed ? on: June 23, 2009, 03:09:02 AM
Did you check out IrfanView?  Seems to do everything else.

I checked the plugins page and there's nothing there,
but maybe the programme itself can do it, will check
5288  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / tool to check if TIFF files compressed ? on: June 22, 2009, 03:36:14 PM
Didnt know where to post this ...

I'm looking for a tool that will tell me if a TIFF file has been compressed (or better still one that will check 100 tiff files in a folder and tell me ..)
AFAIK with TIFF files it's B/W - they're either compressed or not

The reason I'm checking is they supposed to be not compressed if they going to press/publication. The only way I know how to do it is
       a) save a couple & estimate the rest (and get shot if there's a problem later)
       b) resave them all - this is so mindless that you start making mistakes anyways . .

If there's nothing out there and people think it's even possible, I'll post it in coding snacks, thanks!!

Polish Bisongrass vodka  smiley
One of the few Vodkas that actually taste decent, and can be drunk without mixing it smiley
I havent heard of that one -
there's a nice one available here: Moskovskaya (Russian) 'wodka' - it's got a nice little hint of marzipan in the after-taste smiley
Saw somewhere that vodka was traditionally drunk with a meal - I tried it a couple of times, and it does go very well with food. (I add a tiny bit of water and sip)
5293  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Need help with running FARR in portable mode on a USB drive on: June 21, 2009, 11:53:59 AM
mouser, I'm trying to set up FARR to run on a usbstick and search only (or at least first) in that drive
OS: XP home

I have activated the "PORTABLE=TRUE" line as mentioned above by removing the \\\ before it.
I've added the current path to USB programmes folder and unticked everything else (for the moment) and it's finding stuff

so I'm wondering is that enough or do I need a relative path to the usbstick programmes folder? (if so can you give example of a relative path - I know the theory but havent actually used them. FARR is in same programme folder)

smiley many thanks, tom

And while some may prefer to just be quiet about it, to keep some ambiguity, it is our responsibility to at least ask if we want the resulting list to be looked upon with credibility.

agree absolutely regards list -
but me, (speaking with self-employed hat):-
I'm going to continue using software unless it states in the lisence, or programme webpages, that it is not for commercial use (or that it's only for personal use, or to contact author, etc)
5295  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: fully free software utilities for biz use on: June 20, 2009, 07:30:56 PM
(various edits to previous post)

Re Lisence terms in general:
Having gone through my portable programmes folder and looking at lisences - many arent specific.
Would it not be up to the author to say in the lisence if there are restrictions on use e.g. if it just says freeware and no other comments about how you use it would that not mean usable anywhere by anyone?
5296  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: fully free software utilities for biz use on: June 20, 2009, 06:21:32 PM
memuse show memory in use and available memory. Also virtual memory (page file, I think)
It only works up to XP, seems to be okay for commercial - there may well be something better - I came across it at one stage when I was worried that some of my memory wasnt being used

EDIT(s)

Osiva viewer, again seems to be okay for commercial use

not sure do you want to venture into word-processors -
because it's light and portable & I just checked the lisence I'll throw in Jarte into the mix http://www.jarte.com/
