Sometimes a thanks or thumbs up is necessary.
I've been silently enjoying chashnniel's posts in this thread. I've seen a lot of software about which I was unaware. Even if I don't adopt something I get some satisfaction from just exploring it.

THANKS! Seven or eight thumbs up and a bunch of fingers (cos I'm all fingers and thumbs tonight).

I'm with Shades. Viewing the suggestions and (if interested) the links is enough for me.
I appreciate the effort involved by all contributors.

To my surprise Walmart "Great Value" chocolate bars are better tasting and significantly less expensive than many other brands. At $1 a throw imagine hown much you could cram in! Dark chocolate is part on that line.

Then walk East or West, the coast is less than 70 miles away no matter where you are and long before you've walked even 15 miles you'll be falling over a made road, fence, houses, MacDonald's, fish and chip shop, off-licence, etc.
And if you stop off at even 1% of the pubs you'll just be falling over.

Maybe PBOL is just trying to keep you on your toes and show you new and creative ways to think about the passage of time..
Or, perhaps he's using a second-hand copy.

The new version will happy upgrade data files from the old version if it finds them in its database directory.
Do you mean that one can simply copy the database folder, from the original existing version, into the Alpha directory structure?

You're EVIL!

It's your lucky day! I just did a quick search and found a workaround for that on the FFS (FreeFileSync) website. It's a $FREE addon to the app, called "FFSyncRomesh" - named after the developer, apparently (Romesh Rangarathan).
What! No more double the clutching at straws?
As for RR, they do say that every lining has a Silver Cloud.

we decided that you may no longer use Amazon Pay. We may not reply to further emails about this issue

A tour de force of arrogance and stupidity. The author of that should have his bot smacked!

I don't know of anything that completely meets your needs. I did, however, stumble across DocFetcher which might be worth your attention.

Cranioscopical and others seem to be asleep at the switch..

I was trying to keep my response to a Minnie mum...

I'd be curious if folks would prefer to have image data stored in the normal clip database as well?

For me, keeping the database robust trumps duplication.

Maybe you just didn't try hard enough, or enough times. Don't give up now! Give it everything you've got!

You were right, exerting mighty force at least produced the sound of bells; my ears are ringing.

No I do not know the solution, but may be slap on the head will tell it who is the Boss.
No luck. I slapped my head but it had no effect on the Mini.

I was seriously ticked off when WP beat them out. Threw away mine last year having not used it for decades.
