Each time I install an update to FARR (which is quite often these days due to a lot of updates :)), I have to manually start FARR again from the Start menu.

Could it be possible to add a "Start Find And Run Robot when I press Finish" option, checked by default, to the last page of the installer?

I mean, anyway, nobody would ever want to use a computer without FARR running on it, right? ;)

Find And Run Robot / URL encoding in aliases?
« on: February 20, 2009, 05:31 PM »
I use my shortcut "g text" all the time to search for text in Google:

Regexp: ^g (.*)
Result: Google: $$1 |$$1 /ICON=icons\google.ico

Well, now I wanted to search for "C# idioms", inspired by another thread here on DonationCoder. But no, that did not work: I got a search for C only, without any idioms - check Apparently the q argument of the Google search is delimited by the # character.

Would there be any possibility to be able to URL encode the search string? Like a $$$1 instead of $$1 or something like that, or maybe a little more clever like $${urlencode($$1)} to allow for other functions in the future?


Google: $$1 |$$$1 /ICON=icons\google.ico


Google: $$1 |$${urlencode($$1)} /ICON=icons\google.ico

Clipboard Help+Spell / Texts in Quick Paste menu is not escaped for &
« on: October 25, 2008, 12:24 PM »
I just noticed that the texts in the Quick Paste menu is not escaped for the ampersand (&). The problem is that this affects the keyboard shortcuts.

See this:

Note that item B is not underscored but that the "s" in "undefinedsUrl" is underscored. Actually, it should be "undefined&s", but the "&s" is given unescaped to Windows, which then interprets it as a shortcut.

I noticed it because I often press Ctrl+½ (my shortcut to Quick Paste) and then S1 to paste my e-mail address, but this time it doesn't work, because the S matches the item B.

The solution is simple: Escape all "&" characters before passing any "unknown" texts on to the Windows interface.


Find And Run Robot / Ctrl+A to select entire string in input field
« on: January 07, 2008, 08:10 PM »
Well, hope there is room for simple suggestions too for my favorite program that I use a couple of hundred times a day or more... :) Gosh, do I enjoy using that program! :-*

I would love if pressing Ctrl+A in the input field would select the entire text typed there, as in almost every other input field in Windows.

I often find my self pressing Ctrl+A and then Delete to clear the input field - but that doesn't work in Farr 2.0.145.  :(
Other times I try to press Ctrl+A, Ctrl+C to copy the contents of the input field - but nope, no luck there either...  :(

It would be so nice to be able to use Ctrl+A in Farr!  :Thmbsup:


I have just downloaded FARR v2.00.126 and it looks very cool! :Thmbsup:

One thing really bothers me though :(: The Windows standard keys Ctrl+Left and Ctrl+Right for moving one word left or right has been overridden! :( Now Ctrl+Left deletes the word to the left of the cursor! For me it's almost like overriding the Left and Right arrow keys to delete the characters to the left or right of the cursor... Couldn't you use a keyboard combination that is not a Windows standard, like Alt+Shift+Left/Right or something like that? Or could there at least be an option to turn this behaviour off? Otherwise I will find it very hard to shift from v1 to v2 of FARR - and I have really been looking so much forward to version 2!! I use Ctrl+Left/Right all the time to navigate in whatever I write, more than I use Left/Right without modifier keys (!), so it's central for me not to have to be aware not to press Cltr+Left in FARR (especially because it deletes my text!!!).

Please????  :)
