what you are seeing this time is a feature not a bug.
you have 2 choices in this case:
either turn off the option to stop search on exact alias match, or change the name of the alias to something more unique:

for those curious - the difference in disk operations at startup relate to filling the list with items from your past history on startup - it was essentially rescoring all items in your past history on startup - now it just grabs the top 10 or so.
25928  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Inserting text into printout on: March 06, 2006, 07:17:08 AM
just create a text box or caption (see the object bar on right hand side of screen).
25929  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Prompting for file name on: March 06, 2006, 07:15:46 AM
not really, but you can set the prefix and form of file names, and you can easily rename any image by simply selecting it in the window, typing the new name and hitting enter.  the focus of screenshot captor is to help you take a bunch of screenshots and work with them so one usually doesnt want to name files until you have taken several.

however, it's not a bad idea to add an option to ask user the name at time of capture - i will add an option for that to the todo list.
25930  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Text scraping: instructions on: March 06, 2006, 07:08:55 AM
the help file definitely needs an update.
to do text scraping, do windows capture mode, select the text object, hit ctrl+t (or use redbox menu to see preview of text and capture to clipboard).
25931  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: AutoPrint: Not doing its job on: March 06, 2006, 07:04:06 AM
currently it always shows that dialog first, then you hit print.
25932  DonationCoder.com Software / LaunchBar Commander / Re: an idea for auto configuration on: March 06, 2006, 06:50:11 AM
here's a little tip:

did you know that you can drag items found in find and run robot onto launchbar commander (both launch bar docks and in config screen smiley
25933  DonationCoder.com Software / LaunchBar Commander / Re: an idea for auto configuration on: March 06, 2006, 06:08:38 AM
well it will definitely be optional, so if you dont want to use it no big deal.

and launchbar commander makes it very easy to uncheck or delete submenus, etc. so you could very easily in a coupld of clicks hide everything found so it would never display.

note also that launchbar commander makes it easy to add commands from the list of running processes, so it makes it easy to add an application you are currently using (i can make it easier too i suppose).

you can drag shortcuts from your start menu or from windows explorer onto the launch bar to add the commands.

you can always install new versions over old, just make sure the program is exited from the system tray during install.

only $900? why not buy two just in case one dvd gets scratched.
25937  DonationCoder.com Software / LaunchBar Commander / Re: an idea for auto configuration on: March 06, 2006, 03:35:16 AM
tsaint your idea is interesting but it would require monitoring all launched applications forever, which is a waste of cpu.

my idea was to try to build a large universal menu structure (or allow people to build their own and share), and then have a command that would search your hard drive and find any programs you have installed from that hierarchy and link to them).

So for example it might look like this:
+- Backup Tools
++--True Image
Text Editors
Graphics Tools
+- Big Graphics Editors
++- Photoshop

so a nice big well organized hierarchy with nice icons for menu headings.

Then you would run a command called "Find and link all"

And then it would scour your hard disk for installed programs that match the items in that hierarchical predefined menu.
Yes it would take a long time to do the first scan.

But afterwards the result would be a very nicely organized hierarchical toolbar/launcher with nice organized submenus, etc.

Sort of like an instant nice organization.

In a sense, running a second, helper, program sounds a bit inelegant, but so is the idea of boosters on the space shuttle, and that works.

instant text sounds quite good, but at $189 (ouch!!)

this may be a ripe category for a freeware/donationware alternative..  maybe harrie can tell us about what a perfect tool for this would look like, and try to think if there are any features that are missing in these tools that would be nice to have.
25942  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Performance in New Version on: March 05, 2006, 07:41:52 PM
let me add that this is just a stopgap version. version 2 is still on track and will be MUCH MUCH faster.

not only am i optimizing everything but i have decided to implement (optional) indexing in a way i think will be really cool.

25944  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Focus Problem on: March 05, 2006, 04:24:53 PM
does it happen with other ways of bringing up farr?

i've added ctrl+space as a way to bring it up now, as people suggested, let's see if that solves it - at least we would know if its's something specific to alt, which i suspect (it may be that alt+space while in another application can trigger the current application window menu).

v 1.09.02 is a beta release - i expect there may be another release in near future as this version is tested.

a lot of the changes for this version are oriented to new defaults for new installs.

25947  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: does the skin decrease the performance? on: March 05, 2006, 04:33:55 AM
theoretically, yes.
but i don't think it should be affecting the display of results, just the initial window pop up might be delayed by 1/20th of a second perhaps, i'm just guessing.  i very much doubt it's noticable.
25948  DonationCoder.com Software / LaunchBar Commander / Re: Similar apps for collecting ideas thread on: March 05, 2006, 02:49:48 AM
welcome to the site and awesome list cuttheredwire, i'll add these to the list of related programs in the help file.
