Unicode Image Maker / Re: Might a Web version be possible?

Mouser, I understand.  (or at least I think I do) 

I hope you are doing okay.   You certainly have my best wishes and, I'm sure, the best and warmest wishes of many people here.

Mouser, now there are two of us (and probably more) interested in a Web app that does, online, what UIM does on one's desktop.  

Any possibilities???

Okay, I found the control for adding color to the entire background.   8)  

I was just reading about how to resize the image, though, and I don't seem to be able to do that.  

Here's what you wrote to someone else:  

just grab the lower right corner of the entire window with the mouse and click and drag.
(the cursor should change to a diagonal two headed arrow when you move near the bottom right corner to show that the window can be resized by dragging).

I've tried that without success.  I'll go try again and see if anything changes.  

ETA:  Nope.   When I move the cursor around in the area of the lower right corner of the text window, nothing happens.   The cursor remains an ordinary arrow cursor.    I'm using Windows 7 (and Firefox 3.6.x, although I don't suppose that matters).    Can you help?  

ETA:  But wait!   I understood window to mean the "text window", or the place where one enters text.  You meant the application "window."  And yes, applying that definition, the arrow does change and I can change the shape of the image.   Very, very cool!

Hey, Mouser,

Happy New Year to you!    :)

I've been using UIM quite happily at my new site.  It's definitely helpful for what I need.  

One question -- is it possible to add color to the entire background, rather than just to the text?   On the image attached to this post, you will see what I mean.  There is a background color for the text.   What I'd like to do is fill in the entire background with that color -- is that possible?   Poetry, Wisdom.jpg

On edit:  Hmmm, not sure how clear that is.   Here is the Web page where I'm using this and other images created with UIM.  There you can see that the background color is restricted to the area immediately surrounding the text, leaving the rest of the image white.  I'd like to get rid of the white, and fill it with the bg color.

Hello, Mouser,

Just a few days ago I researched the whole text -> image issue and, from my point of view, your program was the clear standout in the crowd.   

I need this capability for a Web application that will soon come online.   Would it be possible for you to adapt your desktop app so that it could be used as part of a website?   would you consider doing that?   (could I afford you?)    :)   

(Yes, I did see that you are in graduate school and mucho busy.  Still it doesn't hurt to ask, right?) 

Point Motivator / Re: How to create a category?

Hello, Mouser,

Thanks very much for your reply.  It has helped me understand what is going on.   

There is some definite interest, I think, in a program of this type.   If you ever want to re-visit this concept, I bet people could offer you some great ideas for making it very popular.   

Point Motivator / How to create a category?
« on: December 26, 2010, 02:48 AM »
I'm trying to use Point Motivator, but so far without much success.   How can I create a category?  How can I create an item or task within a category?    I've used the "Quick Add" feature but it adds points along with the task, and that isn't what I want at all.
