The epubor ebook converter is a whopping $46 - it will need a huge discount, before I would jump that wagon!

^ and such a discount is available just today. Because of FREE offer on Bits du Jour, they also offer a so-called lifetime key for a mere $20.

Today: 100% off. Please note: This includes free 1-year license.
But here you can also get special discount price just $19.99 (60% OFF on $49.99) to upgrade to a lifetime license!

eh... I can easily Save Target As... and download all 108MB ( https://noto.googlecode.c.../noto_cjk/NotoSansCJK.ttc ) but Windows Explorer claims NotoSansCJK.ttc is not a valid font file. Should it be renamed to .OTF?

Roboto and Noto

Since the Ice Cream Sandwich release, Roboto has been the standard typeface on Android. Since Froyo, Noto has been the standard typeface on Android for all languages not covered by Roboto. Noto is also the standard typeface for all languages on Chrome OS.

To support all languages worldwide, Google recommends using Roboto for languages that use the Latin, Greek, and Cyrillic scripts and Noto for all other languages.

The Noto family is already 98 fonts!!!

^ I read this yesterday, but didn't believe it. I simply couldn't understand how such a word would need to be beeped. Further more she was pronouncing the "the" as the before an a e i o u y, not as before a b.

I am a very slow thinker, so it took me a long time to understand that even your "quote" has been beeped. She was not saying "butt", but she was using the British word for a donkey...   It's all about that bass.  ( | )

Thanks for telling about SPLAT; Skwire hasn't fully update his homepage, so its "home" is not listing SPLAT.

I have looked at this program several times, because I would like to have the PRO version. However, even the standard version's normal price is HIGH, I think, and the PRO version incl taxes is $74 ohmy

SoftMaker Office 2012 for Linux was kr. 223.05, is now kr. 74.40. Good upgrade discounts, but nowhere near 90%.

Where is the executable from QTTabbar.
What am i doing bad ?

QTTabbar is a DLL, not an exe.

You may not get to like this program. As you have noticed, people that we admire for their understanding of computers, still don't understand how to use QTTabbar. I certainly don't understand how to use it, either - I am not the one  playing with the settings! In my mind, one thing is certain; you have to STUDY the manual   (or read Japanese?)

I cannot seem to make "ExtraViews"(Dual Pane) work

Sorry, chrisk, I cannot say much about this, because I don't use the feature.
However, if you right-click a folder in the left margin, you will get a context menu that is different from the normal ones:

Quote from: inkpal.com
Print in Draft Mode

In some print drivers, this mode goes under the name of “Print Saver,” “Toner Saver,” or “Economy.” When you select File –> Print, a box will pop up with your printer’s settings. Click “Properties” to see specific options for your print job. Click on the tab that says “Paper/Quality” or something similar and you’ll see an option to change your print quality to “Draft.” Selecting the draft option will print your photo at a lower resolution and the printer will dispense less ink. This selection is designed for initial-draft copies of a photo or document when overall quality is not important.

I was very pleased with •Readability ◦ http://www.readability.com/ ◦ "Readability is a web and mobile app that zaps clutter and saves web articles in a comfortable reading view."  - but that is for web articles only, before saving the documents.

Other than that, at first I would recommend PriPrinter Pro, but that was because we had an early version a lot cheaper than the new; ouch, it's expensive! So, you query for alternatives to priprinter: http://alternativeto.net/software/priprinter/ and you get this answer:

The price is $28 per year  undecided

They have a so-called free version, allowing 100 notes. I think the proper name is a demo version.

But they are clearly targeting all kinds of users:

EVERNOTE SETS NEW RECORDS ON POPULAR “GIVEAWAY OF THE DAY” WEBSITE
EverNote Breaks Records for Downloads, Traffic, Visitors, and Page Views

– On November 15th, 2007 EverNote® Corporation offered the latest release of its popular software, EverNote 2.2, as a free giveaway on GiveAway of the Day, a popular site which brings licensed software to consumers all over the world.

“Visitors to our site clearly saw the benefits of EverNote and flocked to the download page, amazingly breaking all our previous download records,” said Victor Sazhin, President of SoftDeluxe®, which owns and operates GiveAway of the Day.

Have you tried to save each question & answer pair by itself, instead of "waiting" until you have done a full section?

Other than that, it may be difficult to help you out, if you don't give us any links.

Does any one here use DocFetcher ?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DocFetcher
http://docfetcher.sourceforge.net/

Quote
Developer(s): DocFetcher project
Stable release: 1.1.11 / March 3, 2014
Written in: Java
Operating system: MS Windows, Mac OS X, Linux
License: Eclipse Public License
Quote
Portable Document Repositories

One of DocFetcher's outstanding features is that it is available as a portable version which allows you to create a portable document repository — a fully indexed and fully searchable repository of all your important documents that you can freely move around.

[attachthumb=#]

http://docfetcher.sourceforge.net/en/index.html
Quote
Index updates: Of course, an index only reflects the state of the indexed files when it was created, not necessarily the latest state of the files. Thus, if the index isn't kept up-to-date, you could get outdated search results, much in the same way a telephone book can become out of date. However, this shouldn't be much of a problem if we can assume that most of the files are rarely modified.

Additionally, DocFetcher is capable of automatically updating its indexes:
(1) When it's running, it detects changed files and updates its indexes accordingly.
(2) When it isn't running, a small daemon in the background will detect changes and keep a list of indexes to be updated; DocFetcher will then update those indexes the next time it is started.
And don't you worry about the daemon: It has really low CPU usage and memory footprint, since it does nothing except noting which folders have changed, and leaves the more expensive index updates to DocFetcher.
Quote
Java: Performance and portability: One aspect some people might take issue with is that DocFetcher was written in Java, which has a reputation of being "slow". This was indeed true ten years ago, but since then Java's performance has seen much improvement, according to Wikipedia.

Anyways, the great thing about being written in Java is that the very same portable DocFetcher package can be run on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X — many other programs require using separate bundles for each platform. As a result, you can, for example, put your portable document repository on a USB drive and then access it from any of these operating systems, provided that a Java runtime is installed.

Supported Document Formats
##Microsoft Office (doc, xls, ppt) ##Microsoft Office 2007 and newer (docx, xlsx, pptx, docm, xlsm, pptm) ##Microsoft Outlook (pst) ##OpenOffice.org (odt, ods, odg, odp, ott, ots, otg, otp) ##Portable Document Format (pdf) ##EPUB (epub) ##HTML (html, xhtml, ...) ##TXT and other plain text formats (customizable) ##Rich Text Format (rtf) ##AbiWord (abw, abw.gz, zabw) ##Microsoft Compiled HTML Help (chm) ##MP3 Metadata (mp3) ##FLAC Metadata (flac) ##JPEG Exif Metadata (jpg, jpeg) ##Microsoft Visio (vsd) ##Scalable Vector Graphics (svg)

##Regex-based exclusion of files from indexing: You can use regular expressions to exclude certain files from indexing. For example, to exclude Microsoft Excel files, you can use a regular expression like this: .*\.xls

##Mime-type detection: You can use regular expressions to turn on "mime-type detection" for certain files, meaning that DocFetcher will try to detect their actual file types not just by looking at the filename, but also by peeking into the file contents. This comes in handy for files that have the wrong file extension.

##Powerful query syntax: In addition to basic constructs like OR, AND and NOT DocFetcher also supports, among other things: Wildcards, phrase search, fuzzy search ("find words that are similar to..."), proximity search ("these two words should be at most 10 words away from each other"), boosting ("increase the score of documents containing...")
