^ https://startpage.com/ works better I find - but very occasionally, I do have to go back to google or bing.

With StartPage, this thread was #3 (!) and this was #6 when I searched mo lay tau:

^ maybe it's just me, but there's something weird and unattractive about the word 'phablet' - why not go the whole hog and call them fablets...

How can I try to explain this to make certain is my situation ?

Screenshots :-)

FWIW, changing the folder by changing the path works here


EDIT// I think it doesnt like the "." in the foldername

If I 'open' an image file via the SC thumbnail panel (double-click, or press enter with thumbnail selected), it opens in my windows default viewer.

Could that be used to view a large image full-size in another monitor?

Would you consider an option to not resize, but e.g. centre one image beside the other, using the existing option "transparent etc" to fill in the 'background' ?
already done. redownload beta.

lol, you're like roadrunner there -
did you just whip that up in 13 minutes ?? (is that a dc record ????)

Well done, works a treat Thmbsup

very interesting idea thumbs up

(Resizing one image with text makes it blurry compared to the other...)

86  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: What is the logic of bezier curves? (for Illustrator pen tool) on: September 19, 2014, 04:10:50 AM
In FreeHand if I create a point in a line, I can move the location of that point before I move on to the next point.**
This might seem like a minor thing, but it isnt :-) it means you can fine-tune and correct your line while drawing it.
If you draw a lot, this is a huge timesaver.

I miss that in the game above. And, I dont know have they changed it since, but up till Illustrator CS4 anyways, you *cannot* do this -
you have to draw your line, and then go back and select and drag each point that needs to be adjusted.

One could argue, with reason, that the illustrator method encourages more accuracy in the first place, but to me, ease of use wins here.

** how that works:
  • make your point
  • if desired, drag to form curves
  • keeping the mouse button pressed, press the Control key and drag - the point moves

No solutions here, but this and reply (in the Bvckup thread) about open/save dialogues might be of interest.
89  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: I cannot move Office 2010 windows to another Grid in GridMove. on: September 12, 2014, 04:18:02 AM
Hello there,

I found the reply: I can "pick up" the Office 2010 windows with the mouse. They seem to behave different than the rest but if you take the mouse to an edge and wait long enough (you can define that time in Options / Set Edge Time) the window will move.

Great product!

Luis.

thanks for the update Thmbsup
I use GridMove myself - but only with shortcuts so had no ideas here.

PS if you do have any further problems with gridmove, it would be better to post in this board: JGPaiva's Ahk Tools (he's the author, and would then get notification of the post).

It depends, based on resolution vs. screensize...

Yeah, I should have mentioned this:
on that machine I have exactly the same resolution/size monitor as JXS, but only one (JXS has two)

2 x 22" Displays with resolution of 1680*1050 each

I edit a doc/docx/xls/xlsx file and I send it over email to another person
is he able to view the previous editions before I edit the file?

This is like the verbal equivalent of an Escher illustration :-/

As written in my first post, the zoom is set to 100%:

It's interesting that the "Default" label is after the 125% in your screenshot there.

Here (win7 pro, x64) it's after the 100%

[attachthumb=#]

possibly has no significance, but it did stand out to me.

Well, they fixed my last problem and seem to have introduced a half-dozen others...

I've read that they have recapitulated on the realname thing, but I've got to say I'm not sure what they're at.
This has been going on for a while now:

Machine #1:
Windows 7; Firefox/PaleMoon; logged into gmail account; in g+/Youtube with my Youtube name; no Java installed:

  • I am completely unable to post in YouTube - it always opens a popup offering to start a g+ account with my gmail name suggested
  • [edit] I'm unable to view my 'notifications' when in YT
  • *but* I am able to thumbsup a video or add it to one of my playlists [/edit]


Machine #2 (differences are: Java *is* installed, and OS):
Windows 8.1; Firefox/PaleMoon; logged into gmail account; in g+/Youtube with my Youtube name; Java installed:

  • I *am* able to post in YT using my g+/YT name
  • Whenever I load someone else's g+ page, I get an error in loading circles: i.e. I am unable to follow anyone new


At this stage, I suspect this is a combination of pure incompetence, and an unwillingness to let go of the ideal of having gmail and g+ and YT using the same name.

Tom, would you mind giving this a test and see if you can trigger that freeze-whilst-resizing bug?

Website | Download
v1.0.7 - 2014-09-09
    * Made some changes to, hopefully, fix the freeze-while-resizing bug.
    ! Choosing File, Exit from the menu only minimized to the tray.


You'll be happy to hear Jody that I'm unable to crash or freeze it thumbs up thumbs up
