Can you please provide a pointer (or link) to the software you are referring to?

base10 to base64 or reverse
I've never seen a practical use of that, AFAIR :huh:

Base64 encoding of content is often used to transfer binary data in text-form, avoiding unexpected mangling by intermediate processing. And it was required for e-mail transport, as (older) Russian servers passing through the mail around their part of the i-net were only 7 bits, so if content contained 8 bit data it would come across mangled...

hope you don't mind waiting
That's no problem, I prefer my tools to work perfectly, so if all it takes is a little (more) time, that's fine with me :Thmbsup:

Well, I updated to 1.2 and tried the Base64 conversion, but when using the keyboard to select the option, either with or without shift, it gives an error "Error! Only alphanumeric Symbols will be accepted!", but that's a bit weird, as it should accept any string of text instead of numerical data (dec ?) to convert to Base64, and a valid sequence of base64 text to convert back to a string.
When selecting the option using the mouse I get an error:
"Missing Parameter!

Use: baseConvert("Value", "From", "To")

baseConvert("55", "dec", "hex")
(Stripped some unneeded text away)

I think you have the Base64 conversion not working in the expected way Base64w
And selecting options using the keyboard seems to behave a bit strange too

Depends on what you want to type, for my tablet I use Hackers Keyboard by Esc (Play store link), that has cursor keys to facilitate (somewhat) easier text selection using shift/control + cursor keys.

I didn't find the Base64 conversion yet, is that still in planning too?

But in this case I am just trying to get rid of the windows
AFAIK, that's not possible/happening. When closing a 'Window', the app is actually terminated, on Android.

On older Android versions I used to use Advanced Task Killer (by Rechild, couldn't find it in the Play Store anymore) to kill off unused programs, but I started it manually only, as I didn't want it to kill apps 'under my fingers'. I think I stopped using that around Android 5 or 6, but it should still work on those versions. AFAICS, killing an app is the only way to close it's (remaining) views.

I'm glad you appreciate it. :Thmbsup:
It can be rather complex to configure, though, that's why I included the examples ;)

TMK that close-all feature first appeared on Samsung devices, and later also on other brands (nothing to compare with though), but only recently was added to stock Android.
Sometimes it requires to 'shift the list aside' to reveal the Close all feature, have you tried that?

Start at pos 1 of the string take 3 characters and hold them, shift 1 position and do the same, until the end.
Do the same for the second string.
See how many trig's are the same among the strings and calculate the percentage to the total number of trig's of string 1.
I'm not quite sure, nor an expert on the subject, but isn't this the 'F23 Jaccard index' calculation from StringSimilarity? You'd have to multiply by 100 to get a percentage, if you need that, I kept all results except Damerau-Levenshtein (number of edits) in the 0..1 range. The documentation for the F23 library and an excerpt of its algorithms can be found here

OK, this browser is untested.  :huh:
That should probably read "this browser is unsupported", with the side note "use a modern and up to date browser", IMHO

Maybe I have to remove the package completely in WP?
That's how I release updates on my dcmembers page, delete and add ;)

<Esc> key seems to work as Cancel in the 'Find and Replace*' popup...

What's the trick with shift? Should I hold that down to get the secondary result? That's not quite obvious, aka I've never seen that UX before :-[ (And I didn't see that in the description..., but after re-reading I just found that)
'Reverting' the action based on current selected content is what I'd expected to happen :tellme:

I have a feature request:
  • In the Transform menu, could 'Base64 Encode' and 'Base64 Decode' be added? (Should probably be separate entries, as for some purposes a double encoding is used...)

And a few bug-reports:
  • Convert / 'URI encode | decode' : is duplicated on the Transform menu
  • Transform / 'URI encode | decode' : on the same selection does only URI encode, not a decode when a valid % encoding is in the selection
  • Convert / 'Dec to Hex | Hex to Dec' : does only Dec to Hex (20 -> 14 -> E -> <error>), maybe a prefix (#/$/0x) should be added on the Hex result?
  • Hm, it seems all those dual-conversions only do the 'left side' of the conversion, all work in progress, I presume?

And some other findings:
  • 'Sort and Number' / 'Renumber Lines*' and 'Increment Tokens*' : popup view can't be closed/cancelled using <Esc> key
  • Popup views sometimes show (almost) off-screen when the mouse is close to the screen-edge/Windows taskbar (The <Win-K> menu is shown completely on-screen as it should)
  • The SysTray menu has 2 'Exit' entries

This is what I tested so far.

Thanks for a great utility :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup:

try again, please.  I uploaded a new version.
Updated to the latest release just now, and it starts up without issues and works as intended (I guess ;D)
Replacements work like a charm, very useful, especially as I'm working/developing in web browsers for a living, that don't have much smarts in text manipulation (and I sometimes accidentally switch on cAPS lOCK...), where re-typing is the usual way of fixing things.

You might want to package it a bit different before uploading to your (WP) site, there are 5 zipfiles in this TextWorx release-zip, and I had to manually select the latest to extract the files from. A single file holding only the latest application-files should suffice, IMHO.

Hm, after downloading the zip and extracting the files from inside the zip (that is the most recent zip file, though the exe seems to have the same timestamp as from the I get an errormessage after starting TextWorx.exe:

Screenshot - 5-01-2019 , 12_22_22.png

Trying it out in the forum's editor pane (while typing this message) it wouldn't convert upper/lower/title/sentence case or encase a selection, I'm not sure that's by design? (using Firefox 64.0 (64bit)). The same is the case in Notepad++ (v7.5.9, 32 bit). This is most likely caused by that error.

Or if you want a free (but online) solution:

Put another way, whenever the PC is locked I still want the video camera output displayed on the HDMI monitor.
That is not possible, by design, of Windows being locked...

It is kind of possible using specific screen managing software like DisplayFusion, but that doesn't lock windows, and seeing that the screensaver is managed by a windows group policy, it is fairly unlikely he's allowed to install that.

Very interesting NANY entry, Anand, thanks. :Thmbsup:

Hope you add some customization options, as the gray on green color scheme just isn't my taste.
Also, the more... link doesn't seem to work yet, and I'd like to see the date/time the process was started, if possible.

Well, looking at the max. number of visitors on the 25th and Cloudflare 'checking your browser' message when first accessing the site, I can only conclude the same as tuxman did, but obviously, Cloudflare is doing its job as a loadbalancer, though that might throw some 50x's in the process  :up:

You have added a location in the settings?
And I assume you didn't 'install' it in a Program Files' or other protected directory? It has to be able to write to its .ini file in the current directory.

It is not a problem you withdraw your request, but I'm a bit disappointed you have removed all text, so nobody can pick it up later or give helpful suggestions :huh:

Can't your browser' password manager fill that in for you? With Firefox, or a derivate, you get that option for free...

VStudio I do not own
You can download and install the free (as in 'free software') VS 2017 Community Edition from here so you can start experimenting. Knowing Delphi it isn't that hard, the basic (some pun intended) principles are quite the same. Do select C# as the initial development configuration.
Software you create yourself with it can be distributed freely.

StringSimilarity has been updated to 1.3.0, adding the ability to load text from txt files (*.txt or *.*), no file-content check!

Also, the download has been moved to my DCMembers space, link available from the first post, above.

Is a export things to dll planned?
Haven't decided on this request yet, as it's quite a bit of work for such a small feature-set :huh:
What would you want to use it for? Or would a command-line enabled version (with somewhat formatted output) suffice?
