Hi f0dder,

have you think about to implement the option of having an r/o password too?

e.g.
i want to share a "CommonInfos.exe"
with passwords and telephone numbers not all should see
but some people who have the password for fSekrit.

If i now didn't want that the modify the content of my "CommonInfos.exe"
for not having different versions of that info circle around...
... it would be nice to give only an r/o password out to that people.

Maybe you came along a trick to do that... so please think about this feature than again.

I'm still considering it smiley

Thing is, a user could still copy the text and paste it into a new document. Unless you want to disable clipboard functionality?

A read-only mode *could* be useful though, I guess, for stopping accidental saves and such. I'm still considering it. I don't think it'll make it in v1.2, though - I'm trying not to add *to* much new stuff with each relase, but keeping the program stable. I hope smiley

Yes, that's OK. But than i can still reffer to the original exe and say "Use this!"
If the can modify the original exe, no one can say what is the correct one after a short time.

But what is to stop somebody from copy/paste to a new note, then overwrite the original exe file with that? Read-only mode is not a very effective "control" thing... but it's still one the todo since it might be useful for other stuff smiley

Hmm  huh  ohmy  embarassed
Yes, that's right. If they have access to an original fSekrit exe ...
Hmm BTW: will there be a fSekrit version without About-box and fSekrit in the title?  cheesy
If no one knows where this secret little exe comes from....

No, I don't plan on such a version. But if your friends aren't going to respect a read-only copy, perhaps you shouldn't give them a copy in the first place  Cool

i still think it would be nice to be able to set a flag that says this is readonly and make the memo readonly, just as a visual clue to the person viewing it and prevent accidental modification.  perhaps it only need check if the file itself is readonly, and if so set the readonly flag of the memo to match that of the file.

How bad (or "It is a pity." ? sorry, don't know the right term)

Nothing to do with respect (i will be respected, hmm, i must ask tommorow!)
but people are people, the wanna do there own things.
Giving out an r/o exe would give use more consistence in this things

"readonly flag"-thing doesn't helps me of course.
