Screenshot Captor / Resize Window (CTRL-G) display Wonky
« on: October 02, 2020, 03:26 PM »
I see this was brought up a long time ago, but just like the person then I can't see all the options in the prompt.    I also tried switching from my 125% font magnification (eyes getting old, screens higher resolution) to 100% and it looks the same (didn't try rebooting, but everything else dynamically changed).

Appearance wise I can survive, I just can't use it because the only buttons visible are cancel and preview.    Could the default window size be increased even if it means some empty space padding around it for people who aren't having any issues?

Windows 10.

I'm running v4.36.2

Thanks again for ScreenCaptor.   I feel bad for the all the people out there using windows Snip and feeling it's a nice tool

Here's the old topic:

This is probably more of a dos command question than strictly DDR, but that's what I'm trying to get this to work with.

Here's it is:
Running a script command that uses a text file as it's input.  The text file is just a list of files and some other fixed info on each line.

Import.bat  cr.txt -t restore

What I'd like to do is replace the "cr.txt" input file with a value from DDR based on a file name.  Any way to do this?

The other option is to run a two step .bat that creates the .txt file first, but thought there might be a way to avoid this.



I'm having an issue after upgrading where the program will no longer process batch files.   

C:\RunRobot\fixes_drapdroprobot.bat "%A"

Batch file just has this:
cd "%1"
cscript "C:\RunRobot\fixes.vbs

Error message:
'C:\Program' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.
Execution complete.

Odd that it's reporting this when there isn't any Program files reference it seems. 



Drag&Drop Robot / Latest Version?

Hi Mouser

You mentioned before you had an updated version of this you needed to post.

Any chances getting it posted?


Post New Requests Here / IDEA: Clipboard Chain broken notifier
« on: May 24, 2007, 01:48 PM »

Idea is for an application that monitors the clipboard chain and lets you know when it breaks for troubleshooting what is causing it.

I'm having problems where the clipboard chain gets disconnected, but I don't what's the cause of it.
This happens every so often and even "repair clipboard chain" doesn't seem to do the trick (in this case it clipcache2.9).

Sounds like Clip Mate has something that is a similar function, but I really don't want to try having 2 clipboard managers running at the same time.
see:  http://www.clipmate....m#TroubleChainBroken

Is this something that can be done in AutoHotkey to test for the chain?


Maybe I'm missing an option that can be set, but it would be nice to be able to select "Close" from the right click menu of a running programs task bar without having the program maximize.

If I know I want to close it, I don't want to deal with having it show up.

Biggest two times this comes up is when a ton of windows have opened by accident/mistake or when you're accessin your computer remotely.  Lot lighter on the bandwidth if you don't need to deal with the window becoming visible.


Post New Requests Here / IDEA: Separate "Active" Window for a script?
« on: December 01, 2006, 05:31 PM »

Ok, this might be crazy, so here's the short version.

How to setup a script to run in a window - primarily IE.  But, while it's running you can continue to use the computer, without interferring with what's happening in the scripting program.

Maybe the virtual desktop is a good example, where you could put the "automatic" program on the background desktop.

Is this at all feasible, other than going to a virtual machine setup?


Drag&Drop Robot / Folders in Drag and Drop??
« on: December 01, 2006, 02:53 PM »

This might be a simple one that I'm just not getting.

I have a script that normally I just put into the directory where I need it to run kick it off.  It cycles through the files needed.

I'm having trouble finding a way to drop folders onto DDR that would then just run the script in each folder.

I thinked I worked around this before by dropping a file from a folder and just ignoring it's value - but there was only 1.  Here there are multiple folders, not as elegant to have to drag a file from each folder.


Hard to summarize in the title, but a simple idea.
Looking for a method to allow Autohotkey like control, but using text from the clipboard.  A simple way to create quick keyboard based macros.

So, something like the below could be used on many pages for a login.


NOTE: the {TAB} and would appear like that in the text string, not an actual tab until it is pasted.

You ask WHY?  If you're using Autohotkey, why don't you just create a new macro?
 1. Easier to teach somebody that isn't real good with a computer.  Simple access to automation/programming.
 2. Using the clipboard you can easily update a text sequence in a different program (Excel, other macro, etc).  Another method option is if you use a clipboard buffer, many options can be easily stored.  I'm a fan of Clipcache plus and would be able to quickly pull up routines from a keyboard shortcut that have been named and stored there.
 3. Good for testing routines that you would create in Autohotkey, or other

Set up with an option to run with an alternate hotkey (Alt-V) or always with paste function.



Post New Requests Here / DONE: Mouse distance travelled
« on: October 16, 2006, 09:12 AM »
How about a little routine that would tell you how far your mouse has travelled?  I've always wondered just how far that little pointer moves in a day.  Also, including the number of keystrokes would be interesting, but not as much as the mouse distance.

It would be nice to be able to enter a monitor size and resolution to get a true distance travelled, but otherwise, just report in pixels.


Post New Requests Here / IDEA: On screen right keyboard mouse select
« on: September 28, 2006, 09:09 AM »

IDEA: Create a quick access on-screen keyboard for right hand keys (of left hand keys for lefties).

I use my left hand on the keyboard, and my right hand on the mouse.  Any time I need to come off the mouse for the keyboard, often for just a single letter, it slows me down.  I've seen full on screen keyboards, but that's overkill for what I'm thinking about.

The application would pop-up at a hotkey.  Caps lock turn on/off would also be a good alternative.   With the hotkey, it would also be easy to  set up a mouse gesture if you something like Strokeit.

Immediately I would have thought of having a layout that looks like a std keyboard.  But second thought is that it would be less intrusive to just have a slim column list window.  First column letters, second column numbers, third column F-keys, fourth column cursor movement keys.
Then you can just click the appropriate character and have it feed to the last window/active entry field that you were in. 

I would probably still pull my hand to the keyboard to do anything more than a few letters, but often all that's needed is a single letter.

I'm having trouble deciding if this is a great idea or not, but it would be useful at times.  Thoughts?
