Screenshot Captor / Cropping objects on canvas
« on: September 24, 2021, 10:21 AM »
I have a canvas with multiple objects on it with one being a small image that was pasted in.  I would like to crop this image object in-place.

Is that possible?

Thank you.

There are several services that allow one to save an article for later reading but these seem to lack a feature that I would like.

I sometimes cannot finish a long article at one computer and upon going to another computer I have forgotten my place. 

Is there any solution for this?  That is, a service or add-in that keeps or marks one's place in a long article across computers/browsers?

Thank you.

Screenshot Captor used to work flawlessly but lately having some issues.

1.  When using "Grab Selected Region" either by keyboard shortcut or right click tray icon, the window whose region I want to capture is minimized.

2.  After adding a text box and then going back to change the text the inside of the box, everything, including the text, goes black.  The color pickers show the correct colors and changing the colors do not revert from the black.  The only option is to delete the text box and start over and get it right the first time.

EDIT: Using version 4.16.1.

Thank you,

General Software Discussion / Moving notes from Keynote to Evernote
« on: December 06, 2013, 02:30 PM »
I've been using Keynote ( for over a decade but I am growing quite fond of Evernote.

I've collected a lot of stuff in Keynote over the years and have note been able to figure out a way to transfer my notes into Evernote.  I have lots and lots of subfolders with little snippets so copy/paste would take a very long time.

Anyone know how to do something like this?

EDIT: I may have figured out a way.  Keynote allows export to individual files and Evernote allows folder imports.  So I'll have to play around with it.

Developer's Corner / How are these AutoHotkey script protected?
« on: December 02, 2013, 07:20 PM »

I've been researching how to protect my AHK script from decompiling.  I understand that any binary can be decompiled but I'm not talking about people looking at an exe file's assembly language. I'm talking about people taking my compiled AHK script dropping it in to a decompiler and seeing the entire script plain as day.  So I'd given up on script protection and even considered <gasp> leaving AutoHotkey </gasp>.

But then I came across this page

I know the source script is readily available, but out of curiosity, I took a compiled exe and dropped it in to the decompiler and decompiler replied...

<Could not find pattern: >
<File seems not to be a valid compiled AHK Script or it uses an unknown protection.>

So I dropped some of the exe files into PEiD and it says: Microsoft Visual C++ 7.0 [Overlay]

So what is that?  Are these complied AHK scripts or C++ programs?  And if they are AHK scripts are they protected by something?  If so what?

I'm having some trouble with this custom Alias.

In FARR I want to be able to type something like this:

And have the results go to something like, for example...

I just can't figure out how to do the multiple parameters.


Find And Run Robot / [Solved] FarrFox and custom bookmark location
« on: November 01, 2013, 09:24 AM »

I am using Firefox Portable.  Where do I point FarrFox to for the custom bookmark location?



The answer is to export your bookmarks to an html file and then point FarrFox to this file.  

Then it works great.

I am tired of programs granting themselves privilege to load when I start-up Windows 7.  I use a program named Codestuff Starter that allowed me to see and disable anything I want from loading at start-up, but the problem is that these rogue programs keep re-adding themselves.  For example Java, Adobe, Microsoft, etc..   >:(

Is there a program that protects all start-up places, including the registry, from disrespectful companies presumptuously making changes to my property despite not asking for my permission?

Thank you in advance.



I am the creator of This is a site I work on in my spare time that assists people in enjoying solo role-playing adventures with a virtual game master. I have combined some of the top systems into a single interface that allows immersion, encourages creativity, and provides endless opportunity for adventure.

The interface is fully documented in the forum and allows you to save your game progress with an account.

Also in the forum check out examples of different ways people use the app and you will see how flexible the system is -- any genre, any time, any place.

I hope you enjoy it.

Post New Requests Here / IDEA: Port free-er
« on: September 17, 2012, 07:40 AM »

I need a certain port free for an app I use.  However, when booting my PC,  Windows will, on occasion, decide to use the port I want and therefore my app generates errors saying it cannot access the port.

Therefore, what I would like is an app that would, upon execution, kill whatever program is using that port.

The way I currently do it is I launch the command prompt and type "netstat /ano" to see what program has taken the port.  Then I see what the program's PID is.  Then I run Sysinternal's Process Explorer and show the PID column and then kill that program.

I would really like to tell some app, "hey, kill whatever is using port 1080", and save me some step.

Can this be done?


Post New Requests Here / IDEA: Application memory limiter
« on: March 01, 2012, 09:39 AM »
Minimum requirement: Prevent any application from using more than X amount of memory.
Bonus: Apply different limits to different applications.

When limit reached options:
1) Automatically close the application.
2) Freeze the application (if possible) and popup notification.
3) Do nothing but notify.
4) Pop up message box asking what to do.


Post New Requests Here / IDEA: Bookmarks on Windows 7 Explorer menu
« on: February 07, 2012, 07:49 AM »

I am seeking a utility/add-in/hack that puts a dropdown menu in Windows 7 Explorer menu bar so that I can add bookmarks to it.  Also, when I click on one of the bookmarks it should open that folder in the current Explorer window--not a new one.

I should be able to order/sort the bookmarks, create separators, and folders similar to Firefox.

The Favorites and Libraries features currently built into Explorer is stupid in that I must first scroll to it.

I do not want to use an explorer replacement.  I have tried dozens and either they don't work the way I need them to work, or they do but they are buggy.  I use "Classic Shell" so the native Windows Explorer is fine now except for the lack of bookmarking.

Thank you in advance,


I want a macro recorder/player that works as follows:

-- It sits in the system tray.
-- When I do Ctrl-F12 (or some assignable key combo) it changes colors to let me know that it's recording.
-- It records all keyboard and mouse activity.
-- I do Ctrl-F12 and it stops recording.
-- I do Ctrl-F5 and it runs.
-- I do Ctrl-F5 and it runs again.
-- I do Ctrl-F5 and it runs again.
-- etc.
-- I do Ctrl-F12 and it records a new macro over the old one.

Note: I don't care if it saves the macro.  It's just for quick, repetitive stuff like adding the letters "abc" to the front of every line of text in notepad.

For example: I start the recorder, type "abc" once, arrow key to the front of the next line, stop the macro and do Ctrl-F5 for as many times as I need the text added to each line.

This would be great!  PSPad has something like it but I want this ability in all programs.


Unfinished Requests / IDEA: "Windows Task Manager" System Tray Fixer.
« on: October 31, 2005, 07:51 AM »
Sometimes when you minimize "Windows Task Manager", even though all the settings are correct, it will not go into the system tray.  The only way to resolve this is to reboot.

I think that it would be nice to have a utility that, when this problem occurs, causes it to appear in the system tray again.


Unfinished Requests / IDEA: Tabs for child windows of MDI programs
« on: October 14, 2005, 03:11 PM »
I would like a program that does this:

It keeps a list of programs that I enter into it
when that program in the list runs
it has MDI children
it will give each child window a tab to click on to select it.

Mostly I want this for Microsoft's SQL Query Analyzer.
