Clipboard Help+Spell / Remote Desktop / mstsc / rdpclip Woes
« on: September 19, 2012, 03:17 AM »
I'm running CHS 2.13.01, but this problem has troubled me for years.

I usually have at least one Remote Desktop session to another computer running. We are running RD V 6.1.7600 at our company. The target machines are either Win XP or Win 7.

What happens is that the RD process (mstsc.exe) starts using a lot of CPU power on my machine (around 20% in ProcessExplorer on a dual core). CHS is start using around 2-3% of CPU power.

CHS becomes unresponsive at this point. If I kill CHS, mstsc goes back to normal CPU usage. If I kill mstsc, CHS becomes reponsive again. Usually I would not want to kill either process  :)

As I call myself a professional software developer, I think I could handle any instructions to attach to the various processes, and would gladly provide any in-depth information on the topic.

Cheers,

Christian

... 'query (counter)'

That's what I get in a message box these days when opening CHS (latest update 1.47.02). This is sometimes followed (after acknowledging the first) by another one saying 'Error EX63: Operation aborted'. The installation has been running a while on Win XP, no problems so far. 'Verify or Repair Database', as suggested in the other thread, did not change anything. The error appeared before the update, too.

Any idea what's going on?

Thanks for your consideration,

Clipboard Help+Spell / Very New Clips Not Shown On Quick Paste Menu
« on: October 21, 2008, 12:32 PM »
Hi,

I have noticed this for a while, but now I tried to do a thorough reproduction.

- Installed CHS from scratch (V 1.19.02)
- Set 'Number of Items to Display from Quick Paste Group' to 30
- Set 'Move from Clipboard New to Old group after every X number of HOURS' to 48

Still, if I have a newly added clip (say, less than half an hour old) it will not be displayed on the Quick Paste menu. If I go to 'All Clips -> Clipboard -> New' all my clips are there, but not on the Quick Paste Group.  :(

Any ideas?

Thanks for your consideration,

Christian

P.S.: And my favourites keep being moved to the Recycle Bin, too  :(

Hello everyone,

At my company, I am confined to use Outlook as my email client. Outlook is not very smart when it comes to handling text-only, Internet-style email indenting (quoting).

I would wish for an application-independent way to apply the following to selected text:
<pre>
A line of text
Another line of text
</pre>
Select both lines -> Magic indent shortcut ->
<pre>
> A line of text
> Another line of text
</pre>
(lines stay selected)
-> Magic indent shortcut again ->
<pre>
>> A line of text
>> Another line of text
</pre>
-> Magic unindent shortcut ->
<pre>
> A line of text
> Another line of text
</pre>
-> Magic unindent shortcut  again ->
<pre>
A line of text
Another line of text
</pre>
-> Magic unindent shortcut  again -> Nothing should happen

Ideally, the character used for quoting would be parameterizable, but this is really only optional.

I have the constant feeling that AHK could accomplish that, but I don't get the knack of dealing with the notion of 'selected text'.

Any ideas?

Thanks for your consideration,

Christian

Hi,

The task at hand to be solved is rather straightforward:

- I have a dual monitor system (laptop with external monitor as primary screen). The screen sizes are different.
- I have a window on one of the screens.
- I want to have the window maximized on the other screen.

Even though this sounds simple enough, I have often longed for an automated tool to do this. Especially if the window is maximized on the first screen, you have to un-maximize (i.e., restore) it, drag it to the other screen and then maximize it again. Those precious seconds that interrupt the workflow... :-)

I reckon that it might be nontrivial to figure out into which direction/to which coordinates to move the window before maximizing it again.

The user interface to this tool should be a (probably customizable) keyboard shortcut which applied the method to the currently active window.

Cheers,

Christian

FARR Plugins and Aliases / FCalc/FarFox Plugin Delays
« on: August 23, 2008, 07:45 AM »
Hi,

I use the FCalc plugin very often. What I experience is a rather disturbing 3-5 second delay when invoking it, i.e., summoning up FARR, typing rapidly 'fc ' (with trailing blank). The delay occurs _before_ the blank is displayed, FARR reports 'Searching [my start menu path]'.

The same delay is here with the FarFox plugin (again before the blank is displayed, results are shown immediately afterwards). It does not occur with the AltTab or Uninstall plugins.

I tried to set the score for the plugins to an insanely high value, but that did not change anything.

I should mention that I'm almost always networked.

Is there a reason for these delays? I wish they could be shortened, since they somehow interrupt the 'rushed' feeling of my workflows... :-)

Thanks for your consideration,

Christian

Dear Mouser,

The new option tree structure is neat (talking V 2.12.03 here).

Just one thing I stumbled over: The icon buttons for choosing a file/folder (e.g., defining a new Search Folder) are not part of the 'Tab Order', i.e., hitting the tab key repeatedly will never reach those buttons.

For a keyboard-centric tool, I would it welcome if they could be :-) (In fact, every field, check box, etc should be in the tab order, I just didn't check every option dialog. Also, on some dialogs the tab order is not from left to right, top to bottom, but is jumping around a bit.)

Cheers and Keep Up the Good Work(tm),

Christian

Clipboard Help+Spell / Purging of Favorites
« on: March 25, 2008, 02:31 AM »
Hello,

It might be a misunderstanding on my side (or a wrong usage), but to me it seems that even though a clip is marked as favorite, it will be moved to the Recycle Bin if a time rule (e.g., clip too old) applies.

To me, that seems counterintuitive. 'Favorite' to me means 'never get rid of this clip'.

Because I kept 'losing' favorites that way, I now have no purge rules based on time activated, so that my favorites stay, and I clean the clips manually.

A rule like 'purge clips based on time rules, but exempt favorites' would seem enhancing my productivity (even more than it has already been by this great tool).

Cheers,

Christian

Find And Run Robot / Directory Search Order
« on: March 25, 2008, 02:14 AM »
Hello,

What exactly is the order in which FARR searches directories?

Is there some weighing taking the assigned points into account?

I ask this because I have the feeling that this is not the case. I have a special directory (e.g., D:\bin) which contains scripts which I write, but if I input the name of a newly added one, it seems as if FARR starts to search in specified folders on C:\, like Program Files or WINNT.

For me, it would seem logical that the points assigned to directories would result in an according ordering of search paths.

Cheers,

Christian

Hi people,

Being the keyboard-centric that I am, I have searched to no avail for keyboard shortcuts which would allow me to enter the Quick Filter field and to clean it and leave it again (e.g., return focus to tree/list).

Do these shortcuts exist?

If not, I would want to place them on the requested features list.

Cheers,

Christian
