Post New Requests Here / Freeze projector display
« on: October 01, 2016, 08:53 AM »
Projectors have a "FREEZE" option to freeze the display in spite of any change in the laptop display. But, that is a projector feature and needs to be accessed through the projector remote.
I am a teacher and I go to various colleges and use different projectors for my classes. I need to use the freeze option constantly, but sometimes, in some colleges the remote is not available.
So, I was checking out if the display can be frozen by the laptop system, instead of projector. But it is a tedious workaround.
So, I request for a software which can freeze the projector display, using a button/keyboard shortcut on the laptop.

Thanks!

General Software Discussion / App launch and exit Macro
« on: November 11, 2008, 12:34 AM »
Is there a tool which does the following?
1. Monitor specified applications
2. Whenever such an application is run, it executes certain commands, configured for that application
3. Similarly, executes certain configured commands, when it is closed.

I have certain add-ons, which need to be started before the parent program is started.. and closed after the parent program closes ...eg: Tidy Favorites for Firefox
(So, ideally the commands are to be executed, one after another
 ..i.e. wait for Tidy Favorites to run, and then launch Firefox
 ..because, some plugins take a long time to start)

Also, some programs add some unwanted files in folders like 'My Documents' each time they are run..
I would like to have a tool which automatically deletes such files when the program exits.

I found this tool called Stock Startup.. which can be used to batch start a set of programs
But, it does not do the waiting thing ..nor does it do anything on exit.

Pls share your views  :)

Post New Requests Here / IDEA: Prevent Screensaver from Stopping
« on: October 25, 2008, 07:23 AM »
I would like to prevent a screensaver from stopping, until the 'Esc' key (configurable) is pressed
i.e. no other key press or mouse movement stops the screensaver
I hope this is not difficult  ;)

I was unsure if this request needed a new post, since I saw a similar topic here:
https://www.donation...ex.php?topic=13666.0
But, finally decided to post afresh

Thanks in advance :)

For long, I have been looking for a simple tool (for Windows) which shows a slideshow of all images in a specified folder.
Also, it should have the ability to pan the images, smoothly ..i.e. the Ken Burns Effects
(actually, like the one in mac ..i think it is "iphoto")

Things Preferred:
> Option to view images in sub-folders
> Option to choose direction of pan
> Light weigth and fast
> Portable

Things I don't want / care about:
> Export capabilities (I just want a viewer)
> Image cataloging or management features
> Image Editing features
etc.. etc..

Pls share if you know of something like that ;)

General Software Discussion / Tool to edit Font Properties
« on: October 24, 2008, 12:37 AM »
Is there a tool to edit the properties or details of a font? (Like meta-data editors for images)
Actually, I want to change the 'Font Family Name' for a few fonts, but could not figure out a way to do this  ;)

General Software Discussion / Creating a document template..
« on: October 03, 2008, 02:31 AM »
I need to create several long documents.. which are identical, except for certain details which change with every document.
These details are repeated at various places in the document.
For eg. a "name" used, would appear at various places in a document.. and the name would differ for each document

I want to create a template wherein I would enter a new "name" only once.. and it would update that name in all the relevant places in the document.
Like the "name", there would be several other items to be filled at various places.

After all the items which change with every document are entered once, the template would generate a new document complete with new details.

I am looking to do this without much coding-like-stuff involved.
If there is a user-friendly software to do this, it would be great... Any leads??

Thanks!

General Software Discussion / Animated Drawing
« on: March 24, 2008, 06:01 PM »
I was searching for an software which would turn a sketch into a drawing animation...

Then, I came across "DrawSWF" here...
https://www.donation...enSource1/index.html

The program is cool, but just wanted to know if there is a software which does the animation AUTOMATICALLY, given a photo or a sketch, without the requirment to do all the drawing??

Thanks!

Is there a way to assign a Fixed Drive Letter for a removable drive (usb or hard drive), irrespective of the computer with which it is used?

I would like to have some toolbars, macros, etc. to use Fixed Paths, even when used in other computers..

Cheers!

General Review Discussion / Customised Reviews???
« on: September 11, 2007, 12:15 PM »
Just wanted to share a thought...  :-\

It is an accepted fact that (in most cases) there can't be a SINGLE recommendation of "THE" software, for everyone, in a particular category (unless there is an exceptionally well-built application, far ahead of competition)

Reason: Varied preferences in respect of features or uses

So, would it be a good idea to provide users with a (more) INTERACTIVE and CUSTOMISED REVIEW?

for e.g.
1) A user is provided with a list of features relevant to a category
2) User assigns weightage to each of those features (say bet. -10 and +10)
3) Based on the weightage, a calculation is made and a CUSTOMISED COUNTDOWN of the applications is provided

He hee... What do you say?  :P

Post New Requests Here / Filter in Open/Save Dialogs
« on: September 11, 2007, 03:40 AM »
Can we have a REALTIME filter in Open/Save Dialogs (probably, next to the folder tree drop-down list)..
or is there a software which does that already???

Post New Requests Here / IDEA: Virtual Flashlight
« on: September 08, 2007, 06:39 AM »
I would like to have a software which would create a virtual spotlight or flashlight, wherever mouse pointer moves

Similar tools which work only with MAC:
omniDazzle (http://www.omnigroup...ications/omnidazzle/)
Mousepose (http://boinx.com/mousepose/)

Would like to have more features like 'hiding the mouse pointer' etc..

Thanks,
Cheers!
