Unfinished Requests / Re: IDEA: OCR & paste

That's a neat idea, to have OCR built into CH+S.

Unfinished Requests / Re: request : delay F1 key
« on: August 15, 2005, 03:54 PM »
I remapped my F1 to Esc, and I don't miss it. I never use application help, I google (it's always faster), so what's the point of the key? Just to bug me, apparently.

Unfinished Requests / IDEA: Spirited Away for Windows
« on: August 14, 2005, 04:49 AM »
I think this is really cool and wish there was a Windows equivalent:

The Clipboard Help+Spell is useful in a lot of ways for which I wanted this Coding Snack idea, Mouser. Thanks! It really rocks.

BTW, a while back, I donated the 5 bucks to MeFi to get a login so I could Ax Metafilter( this same question, updated based on the conversation in this thread. It wasn't too conclusive but it was worth a try :-) ( Actually, I want to recommend Ask Metafilter as very compelling reading every day. It's a lot more interesting (IMO) than Metafilter itself. I wish I had such interesting questions as these people pose!

Anyway, thanks again!!1!¡!¡1! 0Mg LoLZ0rZ for Clipboard Help+Spell and all your other amazing software (most especially Find and Run Robot); I use and appreciate it every single day. I think you probably don't get thanked enough, although this vibrant + growing community around your software is a reward of its own kind :-)

mouser-I'm on Windows XP. This happens both on my laptop and desktop; my desktop is Pro and my laptop is Home. Both have Service Pack 2 applied.

It does exit normally if I right click and use Exit from the tray, I only use Task Manager to kill the process cos I've already got it open to see what processes are running when I can't shut down.

I finally got the chance to try the new build. Sadly, it's still blocking me from logging off until I kill the process in Task Manager or right-click and exit. Also, it got way bigger!

Excellent :-) May I compliment you on all this amazing software?

Happens every time, it's definitely reproduceable for me. I very rarely take a screenshot (once every two or three days), so I doubt it's holding any file handles open when I try. I tend to turn the laptop off about once every day.

I'll be shutting down again in about five or six hours; is there some way of asking Windows whether Screenshot Captor has any files open?

I can't log off Windows or shut down my computer with Screenshot Captor running in the systray. Every other program closes, but Windows just sits there and Screenshot Captor doesn't go away. If I close Screenshot Captor, my system can shut down or log off again.

Unfinished Requests / IDEA: Spring-loaded folders!
« on: June 17, 2005, 04:32 AM »
Wouldn't it be awesome to have Mac-like spring-loaded folders on Windows? You grab a file, drag it, hover on a folder for 2 seconds, an Explorer window opens. Hover on a folder in there, another opens, until you've navigated to the destination folder, where you can drop off your file. As soon as you let go the mouse, all the Explorer windows that opened spring shut again. This requires writing an Explorer extension.

A window title exclusions list would also be wonderful, so I could exclude keystrokes in certain windows from being recorded like my Find And Run Robot or MSN Messenger window (Messenger Plus is already logging my IM conversations very nicely thank you:)).

I can't find one of these.

All of the keystroke loggers I've found are designed to be hidden from the user and are apparently for nefarious purposes like spying on people and surreptitiously stealing their passwords, or geared toward parents who want to spy on their children, or whatever. I'm not interested in that; I just want a friendly and simple keystroke logger that gives me a form of backup protection when applications crash and take with them all of my hard work when I've not saved recently.

I want a visual indication that it's running with a systray icon. I don't want it to hide or be capable of being hidden, there's plenty of that creepy junk for sale. I don't want it to be aware of the network or capable of sending its log file anywhere. I just want it to hook the keyboard and record my keystroke activity for my use on the local machine ONLY.

I want to be able to right click on it and have it suck the contents of the clipboard into the log; that way if I've worked on a piece of text for a while in separate sessions but it's in a single textarea/textbox control, I can select all, copy, click the tray icon, and have the whole thing appear in the log at once as if I'd typed it on the spot.

I also want it to display the keystrokes it's logged, and I want it to be smart enough to group keystrokes by the window title that they were typed in. So in other words if I have a notepad window, a Word window, and a browser window, and I've typed in all three, it should know to group everything I've typed in the notepad document together, everything that I've typed in the Word window together, and everything I've typed in the browser window together.

It should also have a "keystrokes playback" mode that "types" a given section of a keystroke log into an active window , because I have AllChars and I use it to enter symbols and accented characters by chord-composing them, Mac and Unix style. So to get é I type ctrl;e;' and to get ö I type ctrl;o;" and to get € I type ctrl;e;=. The ;s are short pauses, I didn't use notation like "ctrl-e-=" because you might think I was holding ctrl down. I do NOT want it to record or play back keystrokes where two or more keys are held down, like ctrl-tab, alt-tab, alt-space, alt-f4, ctrl-q, etc because I don't want it to trigger unexpected application behavior when it's playing the keystrokes back. The only exception to this is ctrl-v. I don't want it to record the ctrl-v itself, but I do want it to notice that I pasted text in, and I want it to append the pasted text to the log file.

Thanks a million million times, if one of you decides to write this.

zridling, great advice. I note this thread on the PGP forum with dismay, however. That really takes the cake.
