Find And Run Robot / Re: Error after closing and when opening
« on: February 05, 2023, 10:01 AM »
For some reason, it was trying to create paths through OneDrive, which I don't use, but I have it completely uninstalled from the PC. It is strange.
Not sure what the cause of that is, but sounds similar to this 2019 issue where FARR gave similar error message due to a network path, https://www.donation...ex.php?topic=47759.0

Did you upgrade to Windows 11 through windows update in Windows 10 or did you install Windows 11 fresh from an ISO image?
I'm just asking so there's more information when mouser looks into this issue. I myself am on Windows 10 so can't reproduce it.

I doubt there is anything that satisfies all those demands

I noticed a cert warning when accessing the dcmembers site in Chrome now. Expired 1 december.

Did you try Wayback Machine with ? If the site is abandoned and not updated for some time all its content is perhaps accessible that way.

There are several linux projects that turn a raspberry pi plus a small DAC into a LAN music player controlled through an app or webapp.
Two examples

BTW @mouser it seems chaining setfocus after the appcapresults or fileresults commands doesn't work. For example neither of these
appcapresults "C:\Program Files\AutoHotkey\AutoHotkey.exe" C:\folder\a.ahk ;;; setfocus mainpanel
fileresults C:\folder\a.txt ;;; sleep 1000 ;;; setfocus mainpanel
gets focus to the imported results list.
It would be useful to have focus at the first results list item in this case.

appcapresults "C:\Program Files\AutoHotkey\AutoHotkey.exe" C:\folder\a.ahk
Thank you, that indeed works! For repeat use we can shorten it by adding a user variable to FARR settings
ahk=C:\Program Files\AutoHotkey\AutoHotkey.exe
and then use this alias result line
appcapresult "%uservar.ahk%" C:\folder\a.ahk

Great work mouser! I bet this will be very useful to lots of people doing live streams. From watching the videos above, I like the smooth transitions and especially the tacticle aspect of controlling the camera with two small physical objects instead of fiddling with a keyboard or other controls on the side.

this is the one, free and awesome...
Yeah thanks for that find! I like that it can show the underlying ffmpeg calls - handy if you want to add some step or transformation currently not in the app.

Find And Run Robot / appcap and appcapresults not working for .ahk files
« on: September 12, 2022, 06:11 AM »
appcap and appcapresults do not work for AutoHotkey .ahk files, but they work if we compile the same script to .exe

To reproduce this issue:
1. Save this script as C:\folder\a.ahk
Code: Text [Select]
  1. FileAppend, C:\Windows\System32\mspaint.exe, * ;StdOut
2. right click .ahk and compile, to get a.exe
2. Create new FARR alias
alias name: appcaptest
alias results:
Code: Text [Select]
  1. .ahk test | appcapresults C:\folder\a.ahk
  2. .exe test | appcapresults C:\folder\a.exe
3. try both alias results

Expected effect: both alias results should transform the result list to a link to Paint
Actual effect: ".ahk test" does nothing

This issue has existed for a long time (maybe since appcap was first introduced?) but would be nice to see it fixed (if possible and easy) or to see if anyone knows a workaround on the AutoHotkey side, without compiling the script that is. Mouser, does appcap try to use any file passed to it (and the issue is rather something in Windows) or is there a whitelist in FARR based on extensions or something else?

So basically it appears to have no rhyme or reason.
Feels like Microsoft is nerd sniping us ;D

General Software Discussion / Re: duckduckgo for email?
« on: August 29, 2022, 07:22 AM »
I've tried the basic version where you get a [email protected] email alias. Works as expected. Useful if you don't want to use your main email to sign up for some site or newsletter. There are many other similar services but DuckDuckGo is well known and has a pretty good privacy track record.

I am afraid is only for mpeg videos.

This is easy with the command line tool ffmpeg
See this example
Or to find similar variants

Handy! I have some similar "lazy version control" habits, for example to clone some single work in progress file with a timestamp suffix (via autohotkey and FARR, of course ;D). For when strict VC is too much but you still want to avoid the "file.ext", "file - copy.ext", "file -copy(2) final.ext" mess.

I noticed that there's a standalone version of QuickSwitch (in AutoHotkey) under active development at It support not only File Explorer but also som third party editors. I haven't tried it but thought it might interest some here.
There's a discussion thread in Everything's forum https://www.voidtool...c.php?f=2&t=9881

Might be a bit complicated or not as easy as i imagine.
Hm, sounds like it is just like you described what you wanted in this previous post
To use the terms from your sketch graphic: the "show in list part" goes on the left side of the | pipe character. The "send text" part goes on the right side after the string "paste ". Repeat that pattern on a new line for as many key/value pairs you have.
Why not try it for a few days (and try Lintalist too!). Then you'll see if it is a good match and if not you likely know more exactly what other features you're after.

So you enter "abc" and it will be replaced by "paste 123"
You open FARR with the hotkey, select "abc" and press Enter and FARR then pastes "123" at the cursor.

But then you need to remember the keyword that will be replaced, am I right?
Whatever you put before the first pipe | character when you create the alias is visible in FARR so if you want both the keyword and text value visible do something like
abc -> 123 | paste 123
But if you have a large number of such textblocks then Lintalist is more suited for the job.

I could swear there was a tool that was discussed here years ago
This thread perhaps https://www.donation....msg445306#msg445306

@kunkel321 For AutoHotkey scripts that you have the .ahk source for try my suggestion from the above thread: use ripgrep to near instantly search through all .ahk source files for a hotkey string e.g. ^y::

You could kind of also use mouser's FARR for that.
1. Create an alias with keyword value pairs in this format
keyword | paste value
abc | paste 123
golf | paste don't forget to play golf
2. Set a regex pattern for the alias. For example
3. Set up a special hotkey in FARR to open FARR and trigger the alias (which then shows the list of keys). Under "Text for search edit box" add "zz" (the string that will trigger the alias).

The block protocol
I'm curious if it will take off and how it might change note taking software. Could help with interoperability and data migration.

Mouser's Form Letter Machine might be usable like that

But the most advanced such tool I know is Lintalist. Very customizable!

That's a super duper niche request ;D Seems like a very small set of people who need to incrementally prefix rename desktop icons in horizontal order often enough that starting a dedicated tool could save them time compared to doing it manually?

A tip if anyone goes for it: There are existing functions in the AutoHotkey forums for getting filepaths from selected Desktop files and also for getting the X Y position of all Desktop icons. Use both to find the horizontal order.
