General Software Discussion / Royalty Software
« on: June 03, 2017, 10:16 AM »
Does anyone know of software that would enable a publisher to print royalty checks for a few hundred authors? Ideally, the software would take a spreadsheet and use the information on it to print a slew of checks, ready to sign, on a laser printer. Or maybe there's a more robust software solution that's already been developed *just* for publishers and which would handle royalties and other tasks?

Finished Programs / DONE: HTML Garbage Tag Removal
« on: June 03, 2017, 09:22 AM »
In constructing ebooks, I often run into these unnecessary HTML tag pairs in files exported from InDesign:

<span class="no-break">I don</span>’t


<span class="no-break">my decision.</span>

It always follow the pattern of <span class="no-break"> followed by some random amount of text and then a closing </span>. Deleting these tags (and there are lots of them!) manually in SublimeText is a huge time sink.

I'd like to have an AHK script or Regex code that will delete these specific tags but not the text between them, leaving, for example:

I don't
my decision.

Although it seems a simple problem, I've not been able to come up with anything that works. Thanks!

Finished Programs / DONE: One Click File Extension Changer
« on: September 12, 2016, 06:23 PM »
In my work, I often change file extensions from one to the other, and then back again, and then back again, and so on.

I'd love to have a little AHK script that would do this:

If I select a file with an .epub extension in Explorer and press Ctrl+`, the file extension will change to .zip.

If I select a file with a .zip extension in Explorer and press Ctrl+`, the file extension will change to .epub.

I put in epub/zip and the hotkey Ctrl+` as examples. I figure a user would be able to adjust those things as needed.


I'd like to create a few dozen HTM files from a list that I would type in a text file.

Each item in the list would be the name of a separate HTM file.

Also, I'd like to specify a block of content (the same content) that would be added to each file upon creation.

Can't find anything like it, anywhere. Hope it's do-able.

Finished Programs / DONE: Skinny Paste
« on: August 14, 2010, 10:14 AM »
I've tried many of the clip 'n paste apps but find they either do too much or don't easily do what I want done.

Here's what I'm looking for:

A hotkey-enabled pop-up with a plain text list of 10 short phrases (could be URLs, could be single words, could be sentences). Click the phrase and it pastes as plain text into the active application. That's it! Nothing fancy. As lightweight as possible, too.

I realize that lots of software, e.g., AceText, can do this for me. But I don't need additional functionality and would like to keep it clean and simple.
