Foxit does paste some text over the page if you save it in the free version.  But, most of the time I print out a single copy and then save it for record keeping.  If I need to start doing more than that, I think the $39 is well worth what you get.

Thanks for the note on the dll!


You mentioned another great alternative -- Foxit PDF viewer, it's not open source but it's free.

It's worth it just for this feature:
Interactive form filler: Now you don't have to print out PDF forms first and then manually fill out paper forms. Instead, you can use PC to fill out interactive forms directly, and then print them out. These basic features are free for personal and non-personal usage. Moreover, Foxit Reader supports advanced form operations such as saving filled-out forms and import/export forms.

Simple use.  Just click and type, use the cursor keys to adjust up/down.
I do notice a decrease in the visual quality of some of the pages, but for the added speed and decreased size I'll take it 98% of the time.

Skrommel's Software / Re: HideDesktop v1.2 Problems
« on: March 09, 2007, 10:07 AM »

I'm having the following minor issue with HideDesktop v1.2

Using directory opus, set for a double click on the desktop to bring up the default file lister.

Double clicking on the desktop 75% of the time tries to open the start button instead of the file lister.
No issues if HideDesktop isn't running.

Any ideas?


Thanks for the feedback -- but this seems to cause the second button to be selected, creating a group of the first and second (or more) buttons.  If you try to close group then you'll get the original activated application closed as the same time as the others because it is part of the group.

So, it looks like to do this that you need activate at least one window you want to close before you can use the CTRL button to get the close group option.  So it isn't helpful unless you're closing multiple windows.

Unless this is particular to my system, maybe Ultramon or something else is interferring with the normal functioning.


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.
