Question -- is it having trouble opening files with spaces in the name or only files that have spaces at the BEGINNING or END of their filename?

Implemented; will be in next beta release.


As hinted at in the screenshot above, i've added a couple more features that will hopefully enhance the sort-by-date option.

Welcome voxel!  thumbs up

Most of your items may be a little difficult, but im working on a new release now and I'll see if i can't do a few of them.

Dr.Dobbs was an amazing programmer's magazine in its prime - at the top of its class.

DS9 was a completely different beast from the other shows because of the central role of long running story arcs.  As such, it requires more deliberate and in-sequence watching.
9  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Every Episode Of Every 'Star Trek' Series Ever, Ranked on: December 16, 2014, 03:39:33 PM
One critique -- I don't understand how so many voyager or Enterprise episodes infiltrated the better rankings.. IMHO they all belong in the lesser half of the ordering.. The only way I was able to watch that show was by pretending Janeway was mentally ill.  And Enterprise I could not even watch -- in fact until reading that list I had forgotten all about it.
10  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Every Episode Of Every 'Star Trek' Series Ever, Ranked on: December 16, 2014, 01:03:38 PM
Nice list of all episodes of the tv show ranked and with short descriptions; great stuff for those looking to watch a few choice episodes.  Just reading the top picks at the end tells me this reviewer is worth paying attention to.

11  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Screenshot Captor review by Softpedia on: December 16, 2014, 11:09:32 AM
Awesome, thanks for sharing that!

"Screenshot Captor is just not another average screen grabber. It stands out thanks to its multitude of editing tools and file management options. It can be used for simple daily tasks up to complex jobs where you need to take lots of screenshots and edit them in detail. The advanced feature pack and comprehensive suite of configuration settings make it a serious competitor to other software programs that are not free, and place it in the category of one of the best screenshot capture utilities on the market."

p.s. I'm going to move this post to the Screenshot Captors review thread in a little bit.

Yep, BookCrop was what I was thinking of.

This seems like a task for a good text editor.  PsPad is free and can do this and would make a good utility to have on hand.
14  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: LATEST VERSION INFO THREAD - ScreenshotCaptor - v4.9.3 BETA - DEC 13, 2014 on: December 16, 2014, 09:12:12 AM
New minor beta uploaded, just getting back into the swing of things.  Although it is a very minor feature, the new (and default) print option to automatically choose page orientation based on aspect ratio of the image seems long overdue.

v4.9.3 BETA - December 16, 2014
  • [Feature] New print option (default) to match automatically page orientation to screenshot aspect ratio.
  • [MinorFeature] Added keyboard accelerator for Edit -> Select -> Remember item.
  • [BugFix] Uploader dialog was opening on wrong initial tab.
  • [BugFix] Patch region special effect was missing last row+column.
  • [Change] If you try to minimize SC and have unsaved changes, choosing cancel/dontsave will now still minimize the program.
  • [Feature] When you have multiple arrows selected and change arrow properties, all properties are updated except text labels.
  • [Feature] You can now save and load object preset files (saves and loads all properties of objects like arrows, text memos, etc); you can select some objects and apply an object preset file to change the properties of the selected objects.  It will save the settings of the current tool, or all tools if not in a specific object mode. See Objects menu. To show the Saved presets on the main toolbar (instead of as a submenu of Objects menu) see the "More Interface Options" tab.

16  Other Software / Developer's Corner / OS News on The Devaluing Effect of the Application Store Model on: December 15, 2014, 07:02:18 PM
There's a post at OS News today that discusses some of the real negative impacts of Apple and Android App Stores and the "Freemium" model:



Apple (and Google) have instigated a race to the bottom, massively devaluing the work of developers... I have never made a secret out of my dislike of the application store model, exactly because of what it does to independent developers. It devalues their work, and independent, small development houses will simply be unable to survive in this race to the bottom. The end result? Apple and a few large companies win, but independent developers and users lose.

  • [MinorFeature] Ctrl+A to select all urls in view.

Welcome Shohreh -- you are right it needs a link to forum section in help menu -- adding that now.
ps. You can add VisualWGet and other tools to the menu configuration at the bottom of the General option tab.

20  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: 2014-2015: Best tablet specs for ebook reading on: December 15, 2014, 09:26:20 AM
So I was recently gifted a 10 inch tablet (samsung galaxy tab 4 10.1 nook model), and i think it is big enough for pretty comfortable reading of letter page sized pdfs.  The 13" tablets would be even better of course, but the high-quality 10" screen does seem to be a reasonable solution, and good enough to perhaps try to move completely away from paper books.  Especially in light of ewemoa's valid point about weight being a concern -- you might not think you will care but if you're trying to walk around and read it on the go you soon will care about weight.

Glad to hear it  thumbs up
23  DonationCoder.com Software / Multi Photo Quotes / Re: Feature Request: Jump to the picture file on: December 13, 2014, 05:59:18 PM
Fun idea, and easy enough.
Another option would be to have a key that copies current image path to clipboard.
One problem though is when there are multiple images -- there's a case where copying all image paths to clipboard might be best solution.
24  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Auto Cropping Book Cover Images on: December 13, 2014, 03:58:49 PM
Glad you like it -- I must say it really does help motivate me to continue development on the tools when I hear they are useful to people.

I think you are getting into an area where a standalone helper tool would really be the way to go.
My memory of the "Select Foreground" option is really basically the same as AutoCrop -- except that once it identifies the background it doesnt crop but it preselects the interior (foreground) rectangle that it would have cropped to.

There was an image cropping tool made my one of the members of this forum.. he might be able to add the features you need..
25  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Can't Get a Border on Captured Shots on: December 13, 2014, 10:48:22 AM
You are right.. looks like the SaveAs is not applying the post capture effects -- at least not the border one but probably none of the others.
I'll put it on my bug fix list.
