what is a rvf file?
« on: July 08, 2008, 09:51:37 AM »
Hi,

i want to use the commandline feature of Unicode Image Maker, but i exactly do not know, what an rvf file is. Is it the same as a rtf?

Can i use a rft instead? Searched already for rvf, but could not find information which could help me.

Regards,

Matthias

Hi Matthias,

I apologize for not replying sooner.  I think you may be the first person to actually want to use this commandline feature in the years since Unicode Image Maker was first released.  Not exactly my most popular program.

Anyway the RVF file is an internal file format used by the richtext component i use, and so is not very useful for you.

If you give me a day or two i will upload a new version which will let you load RTF files instead.

A RTF support would be great.

yes i've actually been making a few tweaks to Unicode Image Maker fixing a small bug in how it works with Screenshot Captor and now it's time for RTF.

One thing i realized though is i'm not sure if you need more features besides just commandline loading of an rtf file.  i think what i will do is implement this and you can try it out and see what else you might request.  Expect an upload today.

After some painful hours a new version is now up.
There are a lot of new commandline options and a new ability to save and load style files as well as RTF files.
By combining these commandline options with saved style files you should be able to do what automation you want.
