Find And Run Robot / Openstreetmap alias(es)?
« on: October 10, 2020, 06:02 PM »
I use the FARR Google Maps alias(es) really quite often, but prefer generally to keep away from Google wherever possible.

It would be wonderful if there could be an alias (maps and directions) which harnessed Openstreetmap, instead of Google.

I have no idea where to start on that, so am just throwing it out for anyone who can, to consider!

Find And Run Robot / Can I create a list of my aliases?
« on: June 04, 2020, 08:51 AM »
Apologies if this has been asked and answered before, but...

Is there any way to render a list of my aliases into a .txt or .rtf file, together with shortcuts for each, so that I have a ready reference of the many I have created, and do not have to scan laboriously through myaliases.alias when I forget how to access one?


Find And Run Robot / Restart & Shutdown under FARR?
« on: January 15, 2020, 05:49 AM »
Recently, my FARR aliases for restart Windows 10 (v. 1809) and shutdown Windows 10 have stopped working, bringing up a CMD black screen which then closes. I'm having to do it through W10 settings.

Has something changed? Am I doing something wrong?

The relevant entries are:-

Restart | C:\Windows\System32\shutdown.exe /r /t 0

Shutdown | C:\Windows\System32\shutdown.exe /s /t 0

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

I'd be really grateful if anyone could help me solve this error [see screenshot].

Many thanks!

... of my screen?

Subject title says it all, really. Thanks, all.

Skrommel's Software / UsedFonts: .docx, .odt documents also?
« on: November 05, 2017, 08:52 AM »
Hi, @Skrommel.

Just wondered whether UsedFonts could be extended to cover more recent Word document formats, and also Libreoffice/OpenOffice Writer document formats too?


Skwire Empire / Anuran: spell checking?
« on: June 13, 2017, 12:28 PM »
I'm loving Anuran, but I have fat fingers, and am OCD about spelling! I wish I could spell-check from within the program, rather than having to open output in Notepad or some such.

Any ideas?


If I add a comment/caption, then Save Image and Show, then splice out a part of the image with Ctrl+Alt+P, the comment disappears, leaving a white space.

Obvs, I'm not splicing the part with the caption!

Am I doing something wrong?

Help appreciated. Thanks!

Skwire Empire / Anuran: oriental characters in sound options
« on: May 24, 2017, 02:02 AM »
When I try to set sounds in the options menu, copying a sound file path places oriental characters in the relevant part of the .ini file, and that borks the link.

It's not fatal, since I went into the .ini file with Notepad++ and added the path that way, and that seems to work. But it is a bug, and I thought you'd like to know.

Thanks for a great little program!

Skwire Empire / Anuran: AnuVu: search box missing
« on: May 16, 2017, 11:33 AM »
Hi. Just found this program, and I am really liking it.

Version Windows 10. The search box is missing on the AnuVu page. I've tried setting program for compatibility with Windows 7, but no change.

Any ideas, please? Many thanks!
