Isn't 10 to 12 meters, about the max a BT connection will cover, (see below) stil within (loud) talking distance? Or you could buy a cheap set of walky talkies that does exactly what you need, just tune all to the same frequency.

Edit: Corrected.

AHK is not a programming language as far as i know
A beg to differ on that opinion, as long as we dare to call Javascript a programming language instead of a script language, then an actually compilable language like AHK, or Autoit for that matter, deserves the name programming language.

What a freaking mess.

Grrrr, I feel your pain. Just like how Firefox for Android (I use that on my tablet) was 'improved', Tabs are behind a button instead of at the top of the screen (they already hid when scrolling down, so why make it 2 taps instead of 1?), and Refresh and Back in the menu  >:(

If you turn off the option 'Switch to Object Selection mode after a new object is inserted' on the 'Drawing Object Options' preferences page should do as you want:

Do you mean the keys to send should be configurable or that my program has a configurable hotkey?
Yes and yes.

How do you know the limit of undo's is your destination?
OIW: How do you know the count of Ctrl-Z to be sent? 10x or 25x, or ...?

why not press Ctrl+z and hold until you reach your destination?
That is a far more down to earth approach :Thmbsup:

with control+Z and shift-control-z combinations

Applications adhering to Windows standards use Ctrl-Z for undo and Ctrl-Y for redo, as that's the most common used key configurations. PSPad is one of very few applications that uses the non-standard Ctrl-Shift-Z for redo.

@KodeZwerg if you start anything for this, please allow configurable hotkeys for sending the undo/redo commands.

indicates to me that Contro might actually be in the market for a full versioning system.
Well, yes and no. Knowing the OP for a while tells me that this is way overcomplicated for the use he has, as for each change to be 'recorded' so it can be reverted, it needs to be committed, and my interpretation of his request, it seems that he would expect it 'as you type', like a built-in undo/redo, and not introduce extra keys to press or mouse-clicks to make.

Undo/Redo support can only effectively be built into the software that is used/meant to work on a filetype. No way of adding that externally, other than implementing a local git repo and committing every change, and that is quite impractical.
This is also the reason the way Undo/Redo is implemented differently in different software, as not all file formats are maintained equally (flexible) in memory, by the matching software.

Did someone mix up the 'M' and 'm' time format markers? The month is 09 at the moment, and it will stay that way for a couple of weeks...

(Btw: I'm not a T-Clock user, so can't verify this myself)

If you have SC to open the built-in image editor by selecting 'Show Main Form' on the 'Interface Options' preferences page, the cursor is initially placed in the (file)name input field. Would that work for you?

Ah, yes, so being actively involved is the criterion; that does make sense :Thmbsup:

I dunno if it even counts as software - it's just javascript/NODE.JS lol
Well, independent of what anyone's opinion is of js code, it's still code, so it should be counted in.

The quality also isn't a measure of qualification ;D, it's about the effort and willingness to participate in NANY 8)

* Stephen66515 wonders if his CodyBot (Discord Bot for the DC sevrer) counts as a NANY  :huh: :huh:
If it's software that, in majority, you made, then I'd say yes :Thmbsup:

It is possible that the OP checked the option 'Hide tray icon completely', but as the rest of the caption says, that's not recommended, so this option should better be unchecked.

This option is on the 'Miscellaneous Tweaks' preferences page.

The base folder for file saving can be set at the 'Saving and Loading files' page.
I think you can set the 'Auto Move Older Screenshots' option ('Saving and Loading files' page) in a pattern like yours, but the files would only be moved there after (at least) 1 day. The pattern would be something like:
I'm not sure if the \ could be part of that directory name, didn't try that, as I don't want to mess up my own archive.

On the 'File Naming' page you'd change the 'Default New File Name' to:
and the 'Custom Date Format' to:

And you really should change the 'Default Image File Format' to PNG (on the 'Image File Format' page), as that's way better suited for screenshots than JPG, as .png file compression is lossless while .jpg looses quality during the save. While that usually doesn't really matter for photos, it does matter for, relatively low-resolution, screenshots.

...I hadn't wanted to do that to save RAM but I am about to double my RAM from 16 to 32 so that should take care of that. 
If you are going from 16 MB to 32 MB that would make sense, but having anything from 4 GB and up in your PC, as any PC younger than 10 years would most likely have, then having ScreenshotCaptor resident shouldn't make any difference in day to day use.  ;D

I also notice that it wants to open best and fastest from the little hidden icon box in the right end of the taskbar.  Pinning it to the taskbar and using that as a way to open it and even using the shortcut on the desktop is way slower for some reason.
Well, not to spoil your discovery, but that is the way it was designed to work. Either by activating a capture mode from the tray icon, or by hitting a configured hotkey and start capturing... :-[

Is ScreenshotCaptor referencing a network or USB attached drive anywhere? As in storing your screenshots? That doesn't help the startup speed, as SC tries to populate/refresh the list of recent images, and that type of drive tends to give slow access when first used since some time has passed.
And adding the screenshot directory to your AV exclusions list can give a speed improvement as well.

Actually, I've had teams, skype, and zoom up at the same time. ...
Yup, here too, (well, not Zoom, but Teams, Skype and Skype for Business). I'm not that busy that I need to be in multiple calls often ;D

how do i open 2 zoom sessions on one pc? (company pc, zoom is permant open)
I don't think you can open more than 1 zoom session at a time..
Agreed, technically (close to) impossible. How would the software multiplex the videostream between 2 (or more) sessions?
And how would the other party/session know you're talking to them, or to the other session?
It's difficult enough to have multiple conversions at the same time with people in the same room, let alone on the other side of a digital connection...

MS Teams lets you switch to another call, but it then puts your first call on hold, just like in a phonecall, and you can resume later, after ending/pausing the second call.

« on: August 01, 2020, 12:38 PM »
monitor OR change a folder, but not both??  Not sure.
When monitoring a folder, it seems to only be able to change the attribute(s) of the files, not of the folder. That is what you would usually want, I guess.
I tried to use the "Open With" action, and set "(if exist "%ParentDir%\*.*" (attrib -h "%ParentDir%") else (attrib +h "%ParentDir%"))" as the Destination Program, but that doesn't seem to work. And also it doesn't trigger if you delete a file from the directory.
Some deeper investigation in the AutoIt source of DropIt could reveal a way to do this (or extend it with a 'run command' action), but that seems a bit much.

It intercepts traffic, finds supported resources locally, and injects them into the environment.
Isn't that what your browser cache is supposed to do? :huh:

The smileys and emojis should all be https.. However the images in people's signatures or links to external websites may be http..
Well, the smileys are https when displayed in a post, but not in the Quick Reply editor. Or the Preview/Full blown message/reply editor. The layout button-icons are https, but not the 'toolbar' of smileys, just above the editor surface.
