I've implemented a new feature that makes it possible for users to define UserVariables which aliases and plugins can read (and write).

For those who want to try it before the next official release:
http://www.donationcoder..../FindAndRunRobotSetup.exe
(if you have no use for the functionality of user variables you might as well wait for next official release)

You can find a description of what User Variables are and how to use them in the online help section here: http://www.donationcoder....iables___advanced_use.htm

Sounds interesting, i can see using this for global user defined variables like name, email address, etc..

Any other features we can look forward to in the upcoming release like gridmode or hotkey variables Grin

Is it supposed to be possible to make use of Virtual Folder Paths / Env Paths as part of user variable values?

I tried doing something like:

Quote
[Paths]
quicklaunch=%USERPROFILE%\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch

But when I try to use it in an alias [1], I don't seem to have much luck. 

On a related note, is there a way to get more details (e.g. via a log file or something) about what is occurring (or say, what an alias expanded to) as a result of attempting to launch an alias?  I'm finding that it feels like I'm groping in the dark when trying to get particular aliases to work.  Perhaps I'm missing something...


[1] Referencing the user variable's value via: %uservar.Paths.quicklaunch%

I finally got around to updating the MiniCap alias with latest version of MiniCap and some suggested changes. I also would like to take advantage of this variable stuff, but there's one thing that I suppose isn't possible yet but would be nice: A dialog to set variables.

My default variable section looks like this:
[copy or print]
<DefaultUserVars>
[MiniCapAlias]\n
// MiniCap alias folder settings -- change to your values\n
savedir=YOUR_SCREENSHOT_DIRECTORY\n
</DefaultUserVars>
What would be great would be if it was possible to have something like variablename=valuedialog on first use of alias which would pop up a dialog for user to set a value which will be saved to the user variables. Not terribly important, but a nice little improvement in the ease-of-use departement Wink
