N.A.N.Y. 2021 / Re: N.A.N.Y. 2021: RaptureReplica by KodeZwerg

@mojitomaestro: Precisely that. I'm glad it's not just me! I hope there will be a solution.

N.A.N.Y. 2021 / Problems with extended dual monitors
« on: January 12, 2021, 05:01 AM »
@KodeZwerg, a great little app. Thanks! [This is posted in the right forum page this time!]

On Windows 10 Pro, I use an external monitor as my main monitor, with display 2 (external monitor) and laptop monitor (display 1) linked so as to extend 1.png. Thus I can move stuff from one monitor to the other by drag-and drop.

When I use RaptureReplica on either monitor, the area grabbed does not stop when I release the left mouse button. The grabbed area extends itself to cover that vertical portion grabbed, but horizontally across both screens.

Grabbing a small portion of the laptop monitor (2.png is what I grabbed) gives rise to a much wider grab (3.png). (The external monitor part of the actual grab is part of the DC page, which I had open on the external monitor at the time.)

I hope I have explained this okay?

Could you find a way to limit the grab to whichever are of the one screen on which I use the mouse for that purpose?

Thanks!

Sorry, I should have thanked publicdomain for this (I see it was designed at nkormanik's behest). Apologies!

I'm going to find this really useful, nkormanik.

My first use of this shows the following behavior [Ungoogled Chromium, via BrokenURL as default 'browser', set to always open URLister external links in Ungoogled Chromium]. (I hope these are constructive comments!)

1. Each link is opened in a new tab. Ideally, I would prefer the first link to open in a new tab, and then the 2nd and onwards in that same tab as the first. Is there a Chrome setting that might control this? Or is this current behavior part of the 'design'?

2. Is there a way of making the list of links persist over closing and re-opening the GUI, or at least to have that option for often-used URLs? (I can store the list and reload, but it's one extra step.)

Many thanks!

Find And Run Robot / Re: Openstreetmap alias(es)?

Superb, Nod5! Thank you so much!!

Find And Run Robot / Re: Openstreetmap alias(es)?
« on: October 11, 2020, 04:23 AM »
Thank you so much for this. See bold below for one unresolved issue.

 Just for clarity:

1) Set up a new custom alias.

2) Call it "dir" [no quote marks].

3) Put in the Results box [without the quote marks]: "Open Street Map - To: $$1 From: $$2 | https://www.openstre...p.org/directions?to=$$1&from=$$2".

3) Put in the Regular Expression Pattern box [no quotes]: "^dir (.*) (.*)$".

4) Form of search =: dir [destination] [from]

See the clip attached.

There is one issue: this formulation doesn't cope with places with more than one word as a name (like New York, for example). Is there a solution to that, do you think?

Find And Run Robot / Re: Openstreetmap alias(es)?
« on: October 11, 2020, 02:49 AM »
That is wonderful. It works well! Thank you so much!

Any chance of doing me/us an OSM version of the GM directions alias, with regex? (I know it's an ask, but it would be so helpful!)

Find And Run Robot / Openstreetmap alias(es)?
« on: October 10, 2020, 06:02 PM »
I use the FARR Google Maps alias(es) really quite often, but prefer generally to keep away from Google wherever possible.

It would be wonderful if there could be an alias (maps and directions) which harnessed Openstreetmap, instead of Google.

I have no idea where to start on that, so am just throwing it out for anyone who can, to consider!

Thanks, Nod5. That's done the trick. Most appreciative!

Find And Run Robot / Can I create a list of my aliases?
« on: June 04, 2020, 08:51 AM »
Apologies if this has been asked and answered before, but...

Is there any way to render a list of my aliases into a .txt or .rtf file, together with shortcuts for each, so that I have a ready reference of the many I have created, and do not have to scan laboriously through myaliases.alias when I forget how to access one?

Thanks!

Find And Run Robot / Restart & Shutdown under FARR?
« on: January 15, 2020, 05:49 AM »
Recently, my FARR aliases for restart Windows 10 (v. 1809) and shutdown Windows 10 have stopped working, bringing up a CMD black screen which then closes. I'm having to do it through W10 settings.

Has something changed? Am I doing something wrong?

The relevant entries are:-

Restart
Restart | C:\Windows\System32\shutdown.exe /r /t 0

Shutdown
Shutdown | C:\Windows\System32\shutdown.exe /s /t 0

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

12
Thanks. Mouser, that did it.

(No idea how I did that in the first place!)

13
I'd be really grateful if anyone could help me solve this error [see screenshot].

Many thanks!

14
Even better. Thanks, ash and anandcoral!

15
to me. Damn. I should have known that!

Many thanks!

... of my screen?

Subject title says it all, really. Thanks, all.

N.A.N.Y. 2018 / Re: Mini Clip Mon
« on: December 09, 2017, 01:49 AM »
Really useful. Thanks.

Would it be possible to have an option to reverse the order in which clips are stored, or copied into some other program?

Suppose I want to copy several clips from an article, and put them in, say, a WP document, in the order they're found in the piece. Would it be possible to have them in a descending order of clipping, so as to keep the flow of the original piece?

Skrommel's Software / UsedFonts: .docx, .odt documents also?
« on: November 05, 2017, 08:52 AM »
Hi, @Skrommel.

Just wondered whether UsedFonts could be extended to cover more recent Word document formats, and also Libreoffice/OpenOffice Writer document formats too?

Thanks!

@dantheman, 15 minutes, tops. As for the sync issue, not really something I can help with: I don't sync with Mozilla. Perhaps there are others here who can...?

Living Room / Re: Good bye Firefox
« on: October 31, 2017, 08:33 AM »
Just putting in a warm word for Waterfox.

With its update to 55.2.2 (Oct '17), it now has its own separate location for profile folders.

Concerned about the impending add-on change in FF 57, I've just now moved over to WF. If you copy and paste your profiles from FF location to WF location, and then make sure that the profiles.ini in WF has the same contents as the FF profiles.ini, you'll be reproducing, in WF, all your settings, add-ons, bookmarks. It would be worth checking that all the add-ons survive the transfer: I think I had to (re-)enable one or two. All in all, though, an easy process.

So much so that I uninstalled FF stable and ESR from my computer.

Good reminder. Donations made, to express my gratitude for this site and the skill and expertise offered.

@orbis: Uploaded a new version with corrected timing.

I am extremely grateful.

23
but it has the unfortunate side-effect of making the chime and voice sound every second for the minute it's set to run.

Ah, apologies for that.  I didn't look too closely at the source.   :-[

Might there be a way round this?

To answer your question, yes, it'll take further code modifications to do what you want.  Unfortunately, I do not have time today to look at the source more closely (regular job getting in the way  :P).  If Skrommel doesn't get to it first, I'll try to find time later this week.

That is very good of you. Appreciated!

24
Thanks. I'd certainly sacrifice some CPU for a bit more accuracy here.
Or is there a setting which users can change, perhaps?

The source code doesn't have this as a user-definable setting but, if you have AutoHotkey installed, and are using the .ahk file instead of the .exe, you can easily modify the source on line 189 to do what you want.

Code: Autohotkey [Select]
  1. SetTimer,RUNNING,60000

The 60000 is 60000 milliseconds, or, 60 seconds.  If you want it checking every second, close the script, change the 60000 to 1000, and relaunch the script.  Make sense?

Thanks. Moved over to AHK to try that out. It's certainly more accurate with line 189 at 1000, but it has the unfortunate side-effect of making the chime and voice sound every second for the minute it's set to run.

I have it set up to ring on the hour, and every 15 minutes thereafter. At those times, it constantly chimes/speaks for every second for a minute on the hour, at 15, etc.

Might there be a way round this?

Or perhaps two versions - higher and lower CPU?
