I went to add it but then had second thoughts.. I'm wondering if a better solution might be a standalone tool that would parse a CSV file and create separate text files from it.. Would be a more general solution that could solve your needs but be more configurable and general pupose..

You just might end up identifying the cause to the item 2. Letter "v" is output on a Paste that I mentioned above.

i suspect so.  if you'd like to try the new beta, email me (mouser@donationcoder.com) and i'll send you a link.

Working with leopoldus over email we seem to have fixed the problem -- at least on initial testing.  Now we wait to see if it holds up...

As for visualizing a room or multiple rooms, i would *highly* recommend HomeDesigner; i didn't see anything about counter tops not being in suite version -- that would surprise me.  i suggest you look into that.

Using SketchUp was painful, but was the best tool i could find for sketching a single item with unique details (like a bed).

However the question is, what exactly happens

Hopefully that is a question we will be able to partly answer as we experiment with fixes.
If I had to guess, my guess is that TinySpell is performing some action between the multiple steps that CHS performs as it tries to paste into the target application.
CHS has to switch the focus to the target app, wait for the target app to get focus, then send some keystrokes that involve pretending that the Control key is pressed.  It could be that Tiny Spell is intruding into this and interrupting one of the actions.
Based on your described behavior, it sounds like maybe its doing something to the keystate to cancel the keyboard ControlKey-Down state.

That's just a guess though.  Adding a small delay between steps might tell us a lot more, or might solve the problem completely.

Thanks for reminding me -- i started adding it but then didn't finish -- i'll try to get to it this weekend.

Following up on Iain's observations, one of the thing I could add to help narrow down the problem is an option user-defined delay between some of the paste actions that happen during a paste (simulating keypresses, etc.).  That might help identify the problem.
133  DonationCoder.com Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: CHS conflicts with TinySpell+ when pasting a clip into target app with KEYBOARD on: October 03, 2014, 10:51:32 AM
That's an interesting discovery, and the first time i've heard of it.
The fact that it happens with CHS but not some other clipboard tools, and that it doesn't occur if you paste with mouse suggests that it's something related to the way CHS simulates the press of Control+V in the target application..
Can you email me (mouser@donationcoder.com) so that I might send you some test versions to try?

Also, can you walk me through exactly how you are selecting and trying to paste clips using the keyboard?  Are you using Ctrl+Alt+Q hotkey to bring up the quick paste menu and then selecting with the enter key? Or with a specific # key? does it make a difference?

Oops!
I left in a debug message when the capture wasn't found to be solid -- i think thatt must be causing the problems.
Can you try to redownload again and see if i've fixed the bugs?

yes, exactly the same.

Great.
Thank you for your patience!

Am I likely to need to do the same with Screenshot Captor? It messed around the same at first but has been quieter for the last day or so.
it seems likely, but it might be worth leaving it as it and seeing if it behaves.
138  DonationCoder.com Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: Presets not saved - CHS on: October 02, 2014, 02:02:18 PM
ah my mistake.  so just edit ConfigDir.ini no need to rename it.
139  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: LATEST VERSION INFO THREAD - ScreenshotCaptor - v4.8.8 Beta - Sep 30, 2014 on: October 02, 2014, 12:53:26 PM
So, one of the things in the new version is, it will (unless the option is disabled), check each newly captured image to see if it is all one solid color, and if so, it will display an error and suggest that the user may have a security program blocking Screenshot Captor from capturing images.

This was added because of the recent trend of security apps blocking screenshot taking without telling the user what is going on.  The check for a solid color capture seems to take place fast enough that it's not noticeable (milliseconds), so it shouldn't be a concern (though it can be disabled from options).

Good idea, adding to todo list.

You should not try saving in the C:\Program Files (x86)\.. directory or any subdirectories, unless you are still on Windows XP.
Instead, you need to save in a place where programs are allowed to save (like in your MyDocuments area).
Windows does weird things with virtual directories if you try to save where you aren't supposed to, and that could definitely be causing the problem.

6 hours ago is fine -- my last upload was 24 hours ago.

The most recent changes were:
  • [Feature] When SC encounters an image file of a different format than the extension indicates, it is still loaded but a warning is shown.
  • [Feature] When SC encounters an error loading an image file, it reports the error and clears the current image selection.
  • [Feature] Select-region capture can now be performed in additional ways; you can use enter key to start and end capture regions (space bar resets initial position; cursor keys nudge; C toggles cursor; Z toggles zoom); quick single mouse click can also now mark start and end positions instead of holding and dragging.
  • [Feature] By default SC now checks if a capture is all white or all black, and reports the probable cause (interference from a Security App); see Tweaks option tab to turn this off.
  • [BugFix] If using post-capture dialog after captures, and "stay hidden" option is chosen, main window was sometimes restoring if it was showing before capture was initiated.
  • [BugFix] Nudging selection with arrow keys in region-select mode had an annoying delay/stutter.
143  DonationCoder.com Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: Presets not saved - CHS on: October 02, 2014, 10:58:58 AM
You should find a file called ConfigDir_Sample.ini in the CHS program files directory.
Rename that to ConfigDir.ini (or open it in notepad and then SaveAs ConfigDir.ini).
Then in that file you will see at the top a line like "// CONFIGDIR = %MYDOCUMENTS%"
Change that to "CONFIGDIR = C:\GCP stuff to backup\CHS" (removing the // at the beginning of the line).

The main thing that seemed to resolve it was manually creating the folders in the relevant directories (it wasn't creating some of them itself - I also had the same problem with Screenshot Captor).

I think I may understand why that is happening -- and it's definitely related to the network path issue.

You've given me a nudge to try to fix that, which I will -- however it does sound like perhaps the simplest and most foolproof thing for you to do at this point is exit CHS, and edit the ConfigDir.ini file in the Clipboard Help and Spell program files directory, and tell it to use a local path for saving it's settings.  This should solve your problems.
145  DonationCoder.com Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: Presets not saved - CHS on: October 02, 2014, 10:10:19 AM
Question:

Is the preset menu (and Modify Format/Case dropdown) completely empty? Or does it show some predefined presets just not your newly saved ones?
146  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: LATEST VERSION INFO THREAD - ScreenshotCaptor - v4.8.8 Beta - Sep 30, 2014 on: October 02, 2014, 10:08:11 AM
I've re-uploaded a new version of 4.8.8 -- I'd appreciate if I could get as many beta testers using it (and reporting if everything works) as possible before I release it as a non-beta.

Thanks!

Welcome to the forum, Grayp  thumbs up

It sounds like you are doing everything right -- if the preset files are being created, they should show up in the menu and in the Modify Format/Case drop down button.

My laptop is on a server domain and therefore 'My Documents' is a redirected folder - I don't know whether that bears on it.
I am wondering if this is causing the issue.. Let me check the code and see what I see -- I might send you a debug version that will tell us where it is looking for the preset files, which might tell us what's wrong.

It has to be a simple problem, so i'm sure we can get it fixed asap.

It only shows screenshots in the current folder, not subfolders.
Double clicking on a subfolder should change into it -- it's not?
150  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Thumbnail Panel shows Screenshots in chronological order on: October 01, 2014, 09:15:32 PM
your thumbnails aren't showing at all?!?!
But you have the thumbnail panel itself visible?
Can you take a screenshot of the SC window itself and post it please.
