N.A.N.Y. 2021 / Re: N.A.N.Y. 2021: RaptureReplica by KodeZwerg
« on: September 08, 2020, 09:32 AM »
@KodeZwerg:  Thank you for the explanation.  The location is indeed non protected (C:\PortableApps\RaptureReplica).  I am not an administrator of my machine so I must use non protected locations--very frustrating.  Anyway, I did get RR to save the ImageOpacity.   To do this, I manually changed the "OpacityImage" key in the .ini file, as shown below:

Code: Text [Select]
  1. [Options]
  2. AutoSave=1
  3. OpacityGrab=100
  4. OpacityImage=255
  5. InvertColors=0

After I manually change the OpacityImage key to "255" then it saves as expected. 

@Contro:  Yes, ABBYY has the best object character recognition (OCR) technology!  It is great.  If anyone wants to check out a good freeware OCR tool, check out http://capture2text.sourceforge.net/ Capture2Text is very capable.  It uses Tesseract OCR technology though (which is open source).  I find that Tesseract will not capture a data table correctly,  but tools using ABBYY technology will.  For capturing scanned text documents, though, both technologies are equally good.  If a person wishes to convert an entire large document, check out the free https://sourceforge....ojects/gimagereader/

[ Invalid Attachment ] i don't get it. What is this for ?
I have obtained a little window as showed. What can I do with that ?
 :-\
It is for times that you need to have information from one window visible, while you work in another window.  Perhaps there is a small table of numbers that you must enter into an Excel spreadsheet.  The table of numbers is in an email.  You cannot copy-n-paste because Excel messes up the formatting.  You must manually type the numbers in.  There are too many to remember, so you must view the table as you are typing into Excel.  If you have a computer with two monitors, put Excel in one monitor and put your email in the other monitor.   If you only have one single monitor though, it is hard to have both things visible at once.  RaptureReplica will allow you to open the email, copy the image of the table, then minimize your email program and open Excel.  You will be able to work in Excel, but will the image of the data table will be visible on top of it.  This is only one example.

I was going to suggest auto-saving opacity, but I see that it is already planned.   :Thmbsup:
It is already implemented in latest download  :D
I don't think this is working.   Maybe I'm doing it wrong?  I have changed autosave=0 to autosave=1 in the ini file.  Still it does not save to opacity.  I am using Win 10. 

Regarding the name, I think that "RaptureReplica" is a good name for it.  The common religious view of the rapture is that God will pick out his select few people and raise them up into the sky to be with him yadda yadda.    With your software, the user is selecting a portion of the screen to raise up and be on top of the other windows....   It's a good analogy.    "CaptureRapture" would've also been a good name. 

EDIT:  It might be good to put a date/time stamp or version number in the Manual.txt or maybe the .ini file as a ;comment.  Otherwise the old and new versions look identical to us users.  :)

The tech department at my new school district (employer) won't let staff be 'administrators' of their computers.  I'm trying to talk them into elevating me, but I don't think that they will.   I'm wondering how other people cope with this?  It's super annoying.  I can't run trouble-shooters, or access certain system areas.  Worse is that I can't install many of the various computer programs I've come to rely on over the years. 

Fortunately, I am able to use a USB stick.   I've made a  folder at C:/Portables and put lots of "portable" (i.e. no-install) apps there, moving them over using the USB stick.  Mouser's stuff seems to all be portable which is a life saver.  Also I found NirSoft's "AdvancedRun" which has helped me install a couple of things that wouldn't install otherwise.  I google searched how to make an app into a portable app.  There doesn't seem to be any good solutions out there.  Everything listed was corporate-level stuff. 

Do you guys (and gals) have any tips for me to survive in this new non-elevated world?

Hey this is great!  I've needed this for years and never even knew it!  Hundreds of times, I've made a screenshot, then opened the image in Screenshot Captor in a floating window off to the side.  Your solution makes way more sense.  Thanks for sharing!

Google Boomerang / Re: Boomerang still not working
« on: August 12, 2020, 10:51 AM »
What available alternatives are there? I tried looking and I couldn't find a program that does exactly what Boomerang does

You can try this if you're comfortable with AHK:

I actually used Boomerang at work to check the validity of things that I converted to Spanish.  My theory is that if it still makes sense when it's converted back to English, then the grammar must be pretty close.  When Boomerang stopped working I found this:
https://www.autohotk....php?f=5&t=40876
You can see my correspondence with Teadrinker, who wrote the actual working parts of the code.  It's actually Java code, but I use it inside of AHK.

Screenshot Captor / Re: SC - smart screenshot folder

Another possibility might be to keep \SS on the Desktop, but change its "Hidden" property.  (?)

EDIT:  Also be sure to check some of the dangers of using Desktop for storage.

EDIT again:
It looks like you should be able to monitor the folder and change its attributes with DropIt
http://www.dropitproject.com/
I can't get it to work though. 
I think maybe you can eight monitor OR change a folder, but not both??  Not sure.

Clipboard Help+Spell / Request: minimalist popup menu
« on: July 18, 2020, 10:06 AM »
I may have requested this years ago... Not sure.  Under the Quick Paste group is a ton of extra tools.  I have indeed used many of them over the years, but 99.9% of the time I don't use them.  Please consider the option to put all of these tools (see red X in screenshot) into a single sub-menu.  That way I wouldn't see them every time I launch the Quick Paste menu. 

-Thanks for considering.

Clipboard Help+Spell / Error EX11
« on: July 17, 2020, 08:34 PM »
Wow I've really broken CHS this time! 

I even uninstalled and reinstalled it and also did the "Verify, Repair, Optimize" too.  Doesn't seem to do this if I copy files, but copying text or images results in the below error.  If I then open CHS (quick popup or main window) the "Excerpt" of the text clips are indeed empty.  If I "Reestablish clipboard chain" then the error goes away, but immediately comes back. 

Note my post from this morning, where I "Restored" some clips from a month ago.  I'm not sure if it matters, but I had a spinning drive then, and an SSD now (irrelevant?)  I'm using Clipboard Help+Spell v2.46.1 on Win 10.

Holly moly.. Now my Desktop image just went black...  What the heck is going on with my system???!!!!

EDIT:  Okay, I think I fixed it.  The way I fixed it was (1) exit CHS, (2) delete the entire folder (C:\Users\steve\Documents\DonationCoder\Clipboard Help+Spell), then (3) restart CHS and let it rebuild the folders.  Of course I lost my settings, but that's okay.  I didn't have very many anyway.   ...In retrospect:  As posted here https://www.donation....msg439665#msg439665 I was messing about with the proprietary CHS database files.   I suspect that I accidentally deleted or changed one of them(?)  IDK.  I'll post a reply to this message if the EX11 error ever happens again.

Clipboard Help+Spell / Maybe auto-back up as .csv?
« on: July 17, 2020, 12:29 PM »
Hi Mouser.    Today was the first time that I actually tried to restore from a backup.  I had a big script project before I upgraded my laptop with an SSD.  I forgot to save the script file, but I thought it might be in my CHS database.  I tried to import from the CHS backups that I did save before wiping my hard drive.  It didn't really work (see screenshot).

screenshot

Anyway, no big deal.  But I see that if I do a manual export, it gets saved as a .csv file...  Why not have that be the standard file type for periodic CHS automatic backups?   As I look in my CHS directory, I see .bkp, .bbk, .blb, .bdk, .ibk, and .idx file types, but I can't seem to do anything with them. 

Anyway -- I hope everyone is staying healthy out there!   8)

EDIT:  I just found the setting for importing a back up.   :Thmbsup:

Regarding AHK...  If you have code like "First Line`nSecond Line" I think that Autohotkey does not send "`" then send "n." I think it sends the non-printable "new line" character(?)  I'm not sure though.  Maybe Skwire or one of our other AHK gurus will see this and answer.

Living Room / Re: How to calculate the area of a graph?
« on: March 06, 2019, 07:52 AM »
I'm not sure I could do the math on this.  Also though, I'm not sure I understand the question.  When you say the "straight" line, do you mean the Normoglyc one?  And you want to extrapolate out to hour 5?  To get an exact number, I think you'd have to have the math of the curve.  Visually I'd say it levels out at 105 mg per dl. 

You title says "area," but I'm not sure that it makes sense to calculate area of this type of graph.   It's not like a normal bell curve, were the x-axis represents members of a population.   The graph is three different groups of people over time. 

Again, not sure I understand.

Each case has a start and end date.  But do you need to calculate the end dates, or the duration of the cases?  Or do you have both of these but need to calculate the total number of (increasing) cases?   Are you thinking of a gantt chart?  Perhaps give a little more information about what the real world application is...
