51  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Screenshot Captor 4.10 todo list on: October 10, 2014, 06:33:15 PM
Early beta preview of version that can save and load object preset settings: here (or portable).  See Objects menu.

How to use the new feature:
  • You can save your object panel settings (line, arrow, highlight, textmemo, etc.) to files.
  • Once you do they will appear in the Object-> Object Presets submenu.
  • To apply previously saved settings to one or more EXISTING obejcts, select the objects (in object mode), and THEN load the previously saved object settings from the submenu.
  • To load previously saved settings for subsequent object creation, just ensure you have no objects selected and then choose the previously saved object settings from the submenu.
  • The object settings files are just text files, you can edit and delete them manually.
  • Advanced users: If you want to make object settings files that only affect certain properties (for example arrow properties) without affecting other tools, just edit the files in a text editor to remove the properties you want to leave untouched.

Let me know how it works for you.

Not a bad idea -- though I will note it already does something like this -- it shows on the statusbar what kind of copy has just been performed.
53  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: LATEST VERSION INFO THREAD - ScreenshotCaptor - v4.9.1 - Oct 10, 2014 on: October 10, 2014, 02:00:58 PM
If you downloaded 4.9.1 before 2pm forum time 10/10/14, you might want to redownload.

Additionally, I could use some advice about something.  I have added a new option to let user choose how Ctrl+C works.

[attach=1]

By default, and in past versions, hitting Ctrl+C had a different effect depending on the context.  If you were working with an image and had nothing selected, it would copy the entire image to the clipboard (as a bitmap).
But if you had a region selected, it would copy just that region to the clipboard; if you had an object selected in object editing mode, it would copy just that object to the clipboard; if you selected a file on the left hand side, it would copy the FILE object to the clipboard.

The new option for Ctrl+C tells it to always copy the full image to the clipboard no matter what context.  You can still copy a selected region or object by using the Edit menu (or Clipboard toolbar button).

SO.. my question is, should i make the new option for control+C (always copy full image) the DEFAULT?  I know a few people have posted before about being confused at Ctrl+C behavior, so this might be the least confusing option.

Thoughts?

55  DonationCoder.com Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: Moving clips within folders on: October 10, 2014, 11:06:20 AM
These are all good questions..

First let me explain the basic approach of CHS:

  • Every clip has one and only one group that it lives in.  Let's call this the "home" group of the clip.  In your example above, your clip's home group is "Stuff1".

There are two scenarios where a clip will APPEAR in other groups:

  • First -- by default when you click on a group that has child subgroups, CHS will show clips in the selected parent group BUT ALSO SHOW IN GRAY all clips in all child groups.  This is by design.
  • Second -- CHS lets you create "virtual" groups using sql database statements, that can show certain clips from any other group.  By default CHS comes with a few such virtual groups (such as the Favorites group, which will show clips in any other group that have the Favorite? column checkbox set, and the URL group which will show clips from any group that have http:// in them).

Any action you perform on clips that are shown in these other (virtual or parent) groups, will effect the original group -- whether that's deleting it or moving it.  There is only ever one copy of the clip. You cannot have a clip live in two real groups at the same time.



With all that said, let's answer your questions specifically:

Quote
Question 1: Is it possible to have "Clip1" only seen in the "All/Stuff1" folder (removed from the "All" folder), or is it the nature of the program to show *All* clips in the "All" folder?

Yes, if you disable the default feature where CHS shows the contents of child groups when you click on a parent group (uncheck the first option here):
[attach=1]


Quote
Question 2: How do I remove "Clip1" from the "All/Stuff1" while leaving "Clip1" in the "All" folder?

Select the All/Suff1 group, then drag your clip into the All group.


Quote
Question 3: How do I have a clip available in multiple folders, as in this example case, in both the "All/Stuff1" folder, and the "All/Stuff2" folder?

Cannot be done.  The best you could create a virtual group using sql statement that select from both groups. For example, you could put info in the Keywords column of clips and then make a virtual group that showed all clips in any groups with certain keywords.

Ah.. yes I hadn't anticipated the use of DcUpdater in portable installs.  I'm going to have to cogitate on this one a bit.. The best advice for now is to uninstall DcUpdater if you are using portable installs.  The new versions of my tools don't need DcUpdater to check for updates, they will check and report when updates are available even without it.  The only thing DcUpdater really buys you is that it will automatically download and run the new installer, wheras without it you are just taking to the website.

v4.9.1 - October 10, 2014
  • [Feature] You can now control what happens when you hit Ctrl+C (see More Interface Options tab); previously it always did a context-sensitive copy-to-clipboard, copying currently selected region or object if there was one; you can now configure this to always copy whole image to clipboard.
  • [Feature] Copy-to-clipboard menus now show a more informative context-sensitive caption and include an additional item for copying whole image, in addition to copying selected region or object.
  • [Feature] Better copy-to-clipboard behavior.
  • [BugFix] Selected region copy was causing some issues for some users, a Range Check Error [thanks TimB!]
  • [BugFix] When option to auto add caption to printouts is enabled, it was removing any user-created caption at time of printing.

I think I've tracked this down, if anyone else encounters it.

Can DCUpdater detect CH+S original "installation" folder, even if CH+S is used in "portable mode" ?


No; DCUpdater can *not* be used for portable installs.

Eh, im not super paranoid about privacy, so if there are some existing free tools that do what i want and more, probably not worth the effort.  As long as they make it relatively easy to answer those questions i listed above, no need to reinvent the wheel.
61  DonationCoder.com Software / N.A.N.Y. 2015 / Program Idea: Track and Chart Computer Activity Times on: October 09, 2014, 11:00:04 AM
I need some help figuring out if there are already good existing tools for this and if the idea is worth doing.

This would be a small utility that would be running in the background.  It would be keeping track of periods of activity/inactivity on the computer.  It would probably be able to track manual events as well -- in other words let you set some hotkeys to register when some arbitrary event you care about happens.
It wouldn't be logging which keys you press or which applications you are using, but just very coarse information about when you are active on your computer and when you aren't.  At least that's my current thinking.

And then it would let you browse the log data, and chart it in different ways.

I'm imagining that the tool would be useful for answering questions like:
  • What time did I stop working on the computer yesterday?
  • What days of the week do I use the computer most?
  • What hours of the day do I use the computer most?
  • Let me see how much I worked on the computer and during what hours on monday.

I know there are some good apps for tracking detailed information about what programs you are using and when.. This is much more about tracking general activity patterns.

Thoughts? Useful? Worthless? Already exists?

Are you using the portable version of CHS?

Windows sometimes does a very messed up thing with .chm help files you download from the internet, it silently marks them as untrusted and "blocks" the help file and refuses to display any contents in them, while not telling you what it is doing.

If this ever happens to you, right-click on the .chm help file in your file explorer, choose file properties from the menu, and you should see an "Unblock" button you can press to fix the problem.

Well, what about an application that I've put on a webpage that noone knows about - not even Google, but is technically publicly accessible?
oh that's fine.  we don't do fineprint here. if it meets the spirit of the idea it's fine.
64  DonationCoder.com Software / N.A.N.Y. 2015 / Re: NANY Q&A about what software can be submitted on: October 08, 2014, 10:04:40 PM
Perhaps a compromise solution might be to list the normal NANY apps and do it as we usually do, but then have like a supplemental summary of OTHER RELEASES THIS YEAR by authors who participate in NANY?

So you must code something new but we will also list your OTHER new free software released this year, as a kind of "SEE ALSO"
65  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: 4.9.0 - Cannot "Grab Selected Region" on: October 08, 2014, 08:44:47 PM
Can you check the options on your "Selection Capture Options" tab, and let us know what they are set to?  these in particular:

what if you just left click and relase, and dont hold down the mouth button -- same error?
can you email me (mouser@donationcoder.com) so i can send you a test version?

Yikes! That's the first I've heard of that.
I have a couple of questions:
  • Is the problem reliably reproducible? (you may have to restart program to reproduce it)
  • If you left click and hold the mouse and drag, same problem?
  • Does it capture non-select-region type screenshots ok?
  • If it doesn't happen on every capture, can you identify any factors that might be unusual when you get the error?

I guess I just feel that maybe NANY should be a celebration of software released in the last 12 months.  That way we aren't PENALIZING people for releasing stuff a few months early..
Imagine person #A releases a new cool program every month.  Person #B writes a program in february but doesn't release it until December.
By our rules, person #B qualifies for NANY but person #A doesn't, and person #A's programs are disqualified from any NANY.
I don't like that.

I've thought for a while that NANY should be a celebration of apps released in the past year.. Or at least indie releases that haven't gotten much public attention..
72  DonationCoder.com Software / N.A.N.Y. 2015 / Re: NANY Q&A about what software can be submitted on: October 08, 2014, 01:51:56 PM
Easy question to answer:

Any software that has not yet been released publicly can be entered into NANY.
Yes you should start a new thread in this NANY 2015 section for the app.


A more difficult question concerns software that was released in 2014.  I am of the mind that we should include any software first publicly released in 2014, rather than restricting NANY to only things that have been written in last few months.

How about taking the notion of "printing" more loosely as 'arranging cards on a sheet' (for various sizes of actual/virtual paper, e.g. from A4 to A2, for those with bigger monitors)?

yeah, i would make it work with any kind of card layout and paper size, that's not a problem.

it does raise the interesting issue of stuff not fitting on a card though.. interesting dilemma.
