Have you tried playing with the Compatibility/High DPI settings per application? It's in the <Right-Click-icon>/Properties pages of the application.

And some applications support Ctrl-scroll-wheel-scrolling for scaling only their window/font.

Developer's Corner / Re: Any coders here on patreon?

If you're a programmer who hangs out here and you have a patreon account
It could be nice to have a Patreon icon that could be configured in the profile to point to the Patreon page, and displayed on the left with the other account icons... :-[

I do like the basic (pun intended) idea you are proposing, but for platform-independence I always choose Java. The required runtime is available for a gazillion different OS's. And Java is very well known programming language across the industry, so anyone else after me can pick up maintenance/extension at will, without having to learn this new, esoteric, programming language, install required tools, runtimes, etc... :o

You could use a custom date ('R - Time/Date TextClips' from the Quick menu of CHS, the extra format can be set on the 'Quick Paste Pop-up Menu' page in the settings), adding one in your desired format, lastpost%y%m%d would be the closest to your proposal I can think of, or replace %y with %Y for a 4 digit year.

I prefer the free, manufacturer supplied, Brother iPrint & Scan solution, available for my Brother Multifunction machine (not a very sophisticated model, but it works good enough for the minimal use here), providing access to both the print and scan features of that Multifunction. It is only usable from the local network though, but that's all I need (or want, for that matter).
Works equally well across Windows, Android and iOS.

The program (gui) looks familiar to me...

Let me guess... its written in ahk?
Source Language:Compiled AutoHotkey script

Well, it sure looks like it... :huh:

For those that missed it...
55 + 22 = 77

  • On the settings pages, one button has the caption 'Edit focused' and another 'Remove selected'. IMHO, 'focused' should be replaced by 'selected', as focused is a seldom used term in this context.

Hmm, not 'fixed'. You can select more than one row in the ListView and then remove them in one go. With edit you can only do that for one row at a time (the last clicked row, which has the focus...). IMHO there need to be a distinction. Suggestions are welcome for other wording.
Well, 'Edit' actually works on the last selected item only, thus can be confusing to users (as the focused item isn't recognizable from other selected items). So an alternative solution could be to only enable that button when exactly 1 item is selected, less confusion, and 'selected' is correct.
Another solution could be to edit the selected items in succession (but I doubt if that would really be useful/helpful or less confusing).

the name of this app is it's hard to remember and pronounce
Well, SIMON then? (Shortcut In Menu Or Not) :P

+1  :Thmbsup:


  • Besides .exe files, also .e and .ex extensions are found, and, after adding com to the list of extensions, also .c (and probably .co) files are listed. I'd expect these extensions to match exactly, and .e or .ex files are not executable files, AFAICS.

N.A.N.Y. 2020 / NANY 2020: scss-loop-template-processor
« on: December 28, 2019, 08:16 AM »
NANY 2020 Entry Information

Application Name scss-loop-template-processor
Version v1.2.0.0
Short Description Process SCSS (css preprocessing) @for loops to @each loops including only used classes.
Supported OSes Any OS that runs .NET 4.7.2 (only tested on Windows)
Web Page scss-loop-template-processor on Ath's DCMembers site
Download Link from above DCMembers page
System Requirements
  • Command-line or script
  • .NET 4.7.2 or newer
Version History
  • - December 2019 - Cleanup code, added this documentation, prepare for NANY 2020 release
  • - November 2019 - Added enable/disable-lines-start/end processing
  • - October 2019 - Working as intended
  • - October 2019 - Initial development
Author Ath

During development we use many generated classes for 'pixel-perfect' alignment of page elements.
(The proprietary platform used doesn't allow for direct html or css tags to be applied on elements, only classes can be applied, and to override previous, platform-standard, css often !important needs to be added to the css.)
Both the template and the generated output are @include'd in the files proveded to the scss compiler, but those from the templated are disabled by using an @if that is defined in the template-output to be false on second evaluation. During development the template-output is a (nearly) empty file.

Process a template with a set of numeric-postfixed constants to replace @for loops by @each loops intended as scss preprocessing, to reduce the number of generated css classes.

Planned Features
None at the moment, requests accepted.

Command-line tool, so no usable screenshots... :-[

  • Unpack the zip file
  • Provide a list of classes with a numeric postfix
  • Provide a scss template with @for loops

Using the Application
Run from a command-line or use in a script.

Remove the unpacked files (no configuration is saved anywhere).

Use in a script as a step before releasing a web application having scss files included.

Known Issues
None so far.

Very nicely done :Thmbsup:

Question: can we have configurable Global Key configuration? (or the ahk source to customize it myself) I have a conflict with ctrl-shift-F for the TabSearch plugin, I've been using for 'ages' and I've become quite accustomed to :huh:

I'd love to see & compare both, so @anandcoral, please publish your creation when you think it's ready  :Thmbsup:

Which do you prefer? The non-panorama or the panorama?
The panorama, as the contrast between the sky and the ground in the non-panorama is so high that the ground is only a blur to me

If you insist on using regexes for the conversions, then sed can do it. When downloading sed for Windows, be sure to get the latest updated version. A GNU version of sed is required as BSD doesn't support the lowercase conversion \L.
This script should be saved as an ASCII/ANSI file for the y command to work properly, when saved as UTF-8, sed will complaint about the original and replacement strings not being of the same length :huh:
# Save this file as ANSI or the y command will cause an error
# Convert to lowercase
# Convert all spaces to _
# Remove special characters (][ must be first in range, - must be last in range!)
# Replace diacritics by non-diacritics (to be completed)

I tried to find all diacritics I could enter on my US-international keyboard layout, I may have left out some you might need. Please add what you need and is missing.
Separator character used is : on all script lines

Command-line should be something like:
sed -r -f above_script.txt <input.txt

Where is FARR more secure in asking for a password opposed to entering it in a Windows CMD prompt (without any character echo'ed)?  :huh:  If a keyboard hook would be installed on your system it could see the password in both cases. And I don't know if it's even possible for an application to induce the standard Windows popup-prompt for a password.

« on: November 18, 2019, 01:50 PM »
Can you use the cmd internal command runas? (Not a FARR user... :-[)

Open a cmd prompt and enter runas/? to get the default help on available command-line arguments, or visit for that same helptext and some examples.
