Screenshot Captor / Re: Suggestion for 'File Name Quick Field'

Great! I will be watching upcoming updates. I know it can take time.

I understand about the pop-up window being crowded.
What about this... Change the Override filename field to Change quick field. Then display in the field box the name of the filename SSC is getting ready to name it. And when the pop-up field box is clicked on, the name is already fully selected so that all one has to do is start typing. Or by selecting one of the existing save options the highlighted filename would be used and just increased by a number, 001, 002 etc.
This way, either the filename and/or quick field name could be changed.

I think the quick name field is a great feature to allow grouping different series of screenshots in the default capture folder. And then making it easier to move these groups of shots to other locations as necessary. None of the other capture programs I have looked at over time have this feature as well as others offered with SSC.

Thanks again for considering.

Screenshot Captor / Suggestion for 'File Name Quick Field'

I read in another post that you were in the process of adding some features and updates to SSC.
Instead of tacking this suggestion/request on to that post I figured I would start a new one in the event there were other views for discussion.

What are your thoughts on adding to the ability to change the 'File Name Quick Field' to the 'Post-capture popup dialog' window?
There is the field to override the filename. But this is a one time only unless you remember to override and re-type the same phrase each time.
Or take the 1st screenshot, override the name - save and show - copy the filename override and paste to File Name Quick Field.
And I just had another thought. Could the filename of the screenshot SSC is "planning" to save it as be shown in the pop-up? This way the user knows whether the 'File Name Quick Field' is set properly and they can just save and hide instead of save and show to modify the filename.

As IanB said in the other thread, SSC works pretty well as is if there isn't enough interest in adding these features. But I think they would be helpful for those that take advantage of and use the File Name Quick Change feature to organize their screenshots.

Thanks for considering.

LaunchBar Commander / Re: LBC Screencast Videos Aren't Working
« on: May 13, 2019, 12:14 PM »
@rjbull - I hadn't considered BrowserTraySwitch. I'll look at it again but I'm not sure I want to keep changing my default browser setting.

@mouser - Unless there is enough interest in something like you envision I wouldn't worry about taking people's time & resources coding something new for a single request. I was wondering if LBC was already capable of doing what I wanted and I just hadn't figured it out.
But I did figure out there is another way I can do it without much effort using one of my other favorite programs. XYplorer has a "portable open with" feature I tested with a couple of URLs and it works. I can set up new folders and move my regularly visited bookmarks from LBC to one of these. In XYplorer if I double-click one of the URLs it will open in my default browser. Or right-click on the URL and then select XYplorer's "open with". My two alternate portable browsers plus the default browser are displayed to select from.
Since I have LBC and XYplorer both running all the time, it's just a matter moving this one thing I want to do from one program to the other.

I didn't want to leave the post hanging without what I think will be a solution to my need.

LaunchBar Commander / Re: LBC Screencast Videos Aren't Working

I have a node/group set up with a series of URLs I visit regularly. I also have 2 different portable web browsers I use for different reasons. Along with my "default" installed browser.
Is there a way, that while I am hovering on one of the saved links, I can right-click to bring up my list of portable browsers to select one from to open the link.

Maybe this better explains:
Pop open LBC dock > go to node with URLs and click to open/expand > list of URL's opens > hover on a URL selection > right-click to bring up list of portable browsers > click on one > That browser starts and opens the URL

Is this possible?

LaunchBar Commander / LBC Screencast Videos Aren't Working
« on: May 10, 2019, 12:35 PM »
I am trying to see if there is an "open with" setting in LBC to allow me to select one of a couple of browsers to open a url.
It is touched on in the help file under Global Options but I am looking for more guidance.

Before asking the forum I thought I would check the LBC screencasts. But they aren't coming up when you click any of the links.
Instead, I takes me to a YouTube page with videos for FARR and Screenshot Captor. No LBC.
Any other way I can get to them?


Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: Clipboard Help and Spell - New Name?
« on: September 25, 2015, 11:41 AM »
From some of the previous suggestions here would be my choices. Keeping the CHS acronym and getting rid of the + or &.

Clipboard History System or Clipboard Helper System

I haven't used this yet but from what I have read and heard, it may be able to move the data to a good sector so it can be read. Others here may have direct experience.
It isn't a free solution but if the data is valuable the price may be insignificant.

Here's one you might take a look at.
XNote Timer

Says it has count up and countdown functions. There is a free limited function version on the downloads page. For about $29 they have a version with Excel logging and other bells & whistles.
I haven't used this, but I found it interesting they have a forum page. Looking through a few of the posts it looks like the program has some power to use it on a bigger scale too.

Along with Ian's suggestion may I add another.
Check the PDF reader or editor program you are using to see if it has a scan option. I use PDF-XChange Editor and it has a very good scanning option.

This sounds a little like it may be similar to ISO 9000 documentation and record keeping?
You may want to look at it from that direction. Check out this site to see if it helps.

If so, do a search for ISO 9001 software. One of the results I came up with is there's a pdf here (sample pages button) that provides a checklist.

Here's another from the results.

This may also help.

I've been looking at getting a DB program recently for a couple of things I want to try.
Happened to see this promotion yesterday.

Living Room / Re: Recommend a tablet
« on: October 28, 2014, 10:10 AM »
I'm also not a fan of Apple. But that being said, I do think the iPad and their computers are good for non-technical people or those that just don't want to worry about keeping up with updates, typical virus issues, etc.
It boils down to the main uses. If it is just browsing, email, ebooks etc, it is a good choice. Plus there is the installed word processing, spreadsheet, calendar, contacts,
Case in point, I have a neighbor that recently purchased an Apple desktop pc. He's very happy with it. He's older, though age isn't a factor in who can use a pc. He's been through 2 windows machines over the past 6 years. A big part of that is not keeping it up to date, but he just didn't want to deal with it. He just wants to turn it on and browse, email and games.

Apples are expensive. But I'm told part of that cost is for the after sale support they provide. In my neighbor's case, he purchased at a local Apple store. They sat down with him, went through everything and made sure he was comfortable. And he's called them with questions. You'd have to know him to realize the $$ value of this after sale support.

If there is a local Apple store, have her go and try one. I'm told they will let people "play" with them in the store for quite a while without pressure. Of course others may have different experiences.
If she does decide on an iPad take a look at Apple's refurb store.
Looks like they have different generation units available. Maybe she doesn't need the latest and greatest. And they warranty them.

I've also been hearing things about Chromebooks lately. Not sure if that includes a tablet version. Supposedly an easier to use Android device. Might look at those.

Good luck with your mother-in-law's decision.

Not sure if this will fit the bill but have you looked at Listary.
You can set up a favorites menu and it can also keep track of recently accessed folders to provide easier navigation.
It helps me on a daily basis.

Edit: dr_Andus mentioned Listary while I was posting. Direct Folders is also good.

It would help to access object selection mode with a key shortcut
good idea, i will add a hotkey to toggle in and out of object selection mode.

Is there a possibility this could also be available through a right-click context menu?

Thanks for posting App...
I'd heard rumors of this but didn't research it further. I was planning to look at a Keurig the next time my good old Bunn coffee maker gave it up.
And then buy a couple of the reuseable baskets to be able to use the coffee of my choice.
Guess I'll be rethinking that decision.

I mostly use Mouser's Clipboard Help+Spell. At times though, Ethervane Echo suits my needs better. It was developed by a DonationCoder member. It hasn't been updated since 2012 (maybe 2013) but I've not had any problems with it.

Here's where you can download and find a link to the developer's site.

I think it would be helpful. It would be similar to Ethervane Echo?
I've been running both it and CH&S at the same time for awhile now so I would have that quick paste feature and also the ability of storing images with CH&S.


Or glued up 2x4's like this. It's not sanded and finished yet.

Here's a picture I found of a bed using recycled wood.

Found this site in the UK with some pictures of beds using reclaimed wood.
Click on each of the bed types and you can see more close-up details. These have more of a distressed look.

May give you some more ideas.

Ok i've got my basic structural plan worked out: (see attachment in previous post) (see attachment in previous post)
I used SketchUp, which can be pretty darn painful to use.. I wish there was something better.  The dimensions are only rough estimates since they are difficult to tweak, but the basic idea comes through.

Main issue I was trying to solve with my plan was to provide rock solid stability and support for a large king size bed (76" x 80") and have the sides look reasonably nice (in my bedroom you can really only see one side of the bed).

Notes: Headboard and footboard will not look like exactly like that, I plan to use reclaimed wood for the inset part; slats will cover entire surface; dimensions are off a little because i couldn't get them perfect.

Inspiration came from the farmhouse bed plans on the Anna White site.

My main concern with the plan is the use of the 4x4s..  I am concerned that they are going to turn out ugly when stained and finished.

Consider using glued up 1x boards.

I questioned the square screen when the Passport was 1st being talked about. After seeing it in action it makes sense. I'm talking more for business users.
For anyone interested in seeing it, here is the link to the North American kickoff. They show and talk about the square screen and why at 22 mins in.

What I want is my $30 nokia in a watch shape, with tethering, and syncing all the data to your 'family' of devices.

Personally, I just want my phone to be a phone ... But the Samsung Gear S rig in this iWatch vs. Samsung review seems to do much of what you're after.

+1 on just being a phone.
To me they just look like a fancier version of a law enforcement ankle bracelet.

What do you guys think?   Should I start a kickstarter?  Or am I only designing for myself?

I swear I read an article that this is how the new Apple watch will work, i.e., you would need an iPhone to get the full (or any) use out of it.

I heard the same thing. It was on a podcast or news station announcing the new apple product.
Blackberry also did something similar a couple of years ago with their phones and discontinued tablet. Called it a bridge.

Found Deals and Discounts / Re: CintaNotes Giveaway + 30% Discount

Oh well, missed another one.
Appreciate the 30% discount to DonationCoders though.  :Thmbsup:

So very sorry to hear about Saffron's passing.
Have been in the same place more times than than i want to remember with the passing of one of our pets. They truly are a family member.
It is hard to come up with all of the right words. What does help is to know you gave her a loving and comfortable life during time she was here. And she knew it.
