Skrommel's Software / Combining Similar Applications - Suggestions
« on: March 05, 2006, 02:40 PM »

Have you considered this? It would be really handy to have some of the similar applications combined into one so there are less applications running and thus less memory usage. In addition it would prevent applications from competing with each other in cases like CAPshift and PlainPaste, both of which I use. It would also present a unified location for settings that are similar.

I generally use my keyboard and mouse at the highest speed settings, in fact some people think my computer is broken when the double-click because I have it set so fast. In this vein I find the delay on a paste operation to be on the long side. I would like to suggest you use Ctrl+G as that is close to Ctrl+V and is not used by windows for anything at the moment or even allowing the user to set the key combination.

For reference, here are the current Windows shortcuts from Microsoft...

It would be really great to have global shortcut keys to cut, edit, and paste in the various forms (UPPER CASE, lower case, etcetera). Basically I select some text and press Ctrl+Shift+L for lower case for example and it does all the work.

Skrommel's Software / ShowDialogsToo - Problems

There was an issue for me in that every time an application/window was opened it caused all my windows to flash. If this is unavoidable I can understand and sadly won't be able to use the application. If there is some way I can help you track down an issue I would be glad to.

Skrommel's Software / IdleMute - Suggestions and Problems

I would appreciate an option to not auto-unmute. On mute I have the application open the volume control so I know that the system is muted and I can make a choice of whether it is appropriate to unmute when I come back to my computer and see it.

Another useful option would be to mute on sleep or when resuming from sleep. I often resume from sleep in a different environment such as a meeting and when I do the system makes noises associated with sleep and logging back on to my system which can be embarrasing. :P

When I set the application to run SndVol32.exe on mute and went away from my tablet to meet with someone I came back and it had launched about 20 instances of the volume control and started generating errors because it couldn't launch SndVol32.exe anymore. I believe I had the time set to a short interval as I was testing the application before i went into the impromptu meeting. If you need any details fro my computer let me know. If this is intended, an option to not run the specified application if the system is already muted would be appreciated.

Skrommel's Software / StartClock - Suggestions

Something very useful would be to show the date as well as the time in the start button even if it is very small.

It would be nice to be able to configure what to display on the tool tip and maybe change the font colour and type face used for the Start button.

Is it possible to show a tooltip when hovering over the time? This would be very useful as I have a tablet PC and the Taskbar real estate is very vaulable and as such I have most of my SysTray icons hidden including StartClock.

I've noticed that some windows (dialogs) are too small to properly display and read the time. I think a setting to only show or not show on a defined list of windows would help. Maybe an option to not display on windows of a certain width?

The clock stays on the DT when last window is minimized. Similarly the clock still shows after closing the Start Menu. There is another post about this issue but if you don't mind I'll leave it in my list too. Maybe there is some way to detect that there is no valid window and therefore force the clock to go into specified corner on the desktop? Maybe at an increased size considering it is the desktop? Or just clear it until a window is brought up.

When changing the settings it does not update. Perhaps adding a menu option to refresh the settings will help?

There seems to be an issue when using ClearType. The text is grown somewhat and unreadable.

Skrommel's Software / Wow! Thanks for all the cool applications!

Very well done! I have chosen a number of your applications to try and as such I have some feedback for you. I will make a post for each application.

Thanks again! :D
