Find And Run Robot / How to unignore an item in FARR?
« on: September 15, 2014, 08:58 PM »
First, I want to say that I've been using FARR for several years now, and I can't imagine using my computer without it. Thanks for all the hard work, Mouser.  :Thmbsup:

Now then, I have a habit of clicking on "Remove item from history" in the context menu some items that I don't use very often, when I need to see what has fallen off of the bottom of the list. However, recently, I accidentally clicked on "ignore item in future". I've looked through the options - in the "lists" section mainly - but can't figure out where the list of ignored items is. I've also searched the forum, and can't find the answer here. So, how do I unignore the item?

Post New Requests Here / IDEA: Headed List Builder
« on: January 16, 2012, 09:52 AM »
I have a repetitive task everyday, where I have to go through a lot of documents grabbing information. Then the information gets put into an email along with headers (that are usually the same ones day after day), and sent out. I've been using Notepad++ (and a lot of copying, pasting, and typing) for this, but I came up with an idea for a small program that would actually help streamline the task quite a bit. I tried to come up with as detailed a description of it as I could:

I. The GUI

    A. Textbox - The main part of the GUI should be a simple textbox. It should allow for typing, copying, pasting, etc. but no special formatting options or anything are needed. (Unicode support for the whole program would be a big plus though as it is possible I'll need to use this with Japanese text at some point.)

    B. Above the textbox.
        1. A persistent dropdown list for headers. (This should initially be empty when the program is first run).
        2. A button to add whatever is selected in the textbox to the dropdown list.
        3. A button to paste the selected header from the dropdown list at the cursor position in the textbox.
        4. A button to delete the currently selected header from the dropdown list.
        5. Not necessary at this point, but a way to switch header lists for different projects would probably be a good idea.

    C. Below the textbox.
        1. A button to clear the contents of the textbox. (Should confirm first, in case of accidental clicks).

II. Global Hotkeys - The program should set the following global hotkeys while it is running.

    A. Win+Ctrl+C - Copy selected text from active program, and paste at the cursor position in the textbox.
    B. Win+Ctrl+V - Paste entire contents of the textbox at the cursor position of the active program.

I think someone who is more adept than I am at AutoHotkey would probably be able to code this without too much of a problem.

Post New Requests Here / IDEA: Process Watcher.
« on: November 15, 2009, 01:09 PM »
This is my first request, and I think it will probably be pretty simple.  There may even be a program that already does it, but I haven't found one.

Anyway, my annoyance is that I have a few programs (Firefox being the notable example), that take forever to load, forever to shut down, and also eat up a lot of ram.  I frequently find myself keeping Task Manager open while running these programs, but that is an inelegant solution at best.

What I'd like to see is a small program that sits in the System Tray and watches for specific process(es) (a user configurable list would be best of course).  It would then notify the user when:

1. A process in the list starts running.
2. The process' ram usage crosses a specific (also user configurable) threshold.
3. The process is no longer running.

Also, being able to configure the program to watch for any combination of the these three events for each process would probably make it more useful to more potential users.

Thanks to anyone who considers my request.
