General Software Discussion / why MS Word breaks format
« on: May 29, 2015, 08:35 AM »

I cannot understand
I have a text in MS Word
I copy another text and paste it, and it changes the margins of the first text!
I tried all the possible options of pasting, but it keeps doing it!
is there a solution to this?

I just want to leave the initial text alone, maybe make it obey in new margins after the last page of the initial text, or something?


General Software Discussion / cannot copy/paste in word
« on: May 27, 2015, 03:54 PM »

I have the newest MS Word (not sure which version, it doesn't mention anywhere!)

I cannot copy/paste using CTRL keyboard shortcuts!

is this a known glitch?


General Software Discussion / real time collaborative platform
« on: May 24, 2015, 06:28 AM »

My projects often need a flowchart, a timeline chart, addition of comments, addition of discussion, email alerts, file sharing, etc

We use sharepoint, which is supposedly very powerful, but the main problem I see with it is that there is not a single page to display the projects and edit it or have a discussion about each of its steps

you have to download the file, view it, and edit it, and then upload it, which is very cumbersome

isn't there a platform where it will have all the possible features and it will be web-based, not having to open locally files?


General Software Discussion / powerpoint question
« on: May 21, 2015, 09:54 AM »

Is it possible to edit one of the layouts in Powerpoint? I want to have a layout that will be as the 'picture with caption' BUT with a title also at the top!
and then I want to convert a bunch of slides I have to that layout (which can be done just by selecting the slides and clicking that layout)

any idea?


General Software Discussion / MS Project questions
« on: May 05, 2015, 03:11 AM »

I am forced to use MS Project and I think it's a badly design program

Can you tell me please:

1) how do I make to Autoschedule new tasks for every document by default?
2) how do I make it start with today's date for new tasks, instead of Mon 12/10/09 that it enters now?


General Software Discussion / radius by time
« on: May 01, 2015, 03:15 PM »

I want to specify a point in map and then see a 20min by car radius! or if not possible, at least to specify a 20km radius but not in straight line, but by following the streets!

is this possible?


General Software Discussion / sharepoint question
« on: April 30, 2015, 08:45 AM »

I have a list of files and folders in a sharepoint website

In another sharepoint website, I want to create shortcuts to these files

is there an easy way? to grab the links (or maybe straightaway shortcuts) convert/create shortcuts and upload them altogether in the sharepoint website?

I don't know how to grab the shortcuts from multiple sharepoint files/folders at once, or how to grab the urls of multiple files/folders at once and convert them into shortcuts.
Then, I don't know how to upload shortcut files into a sharepoint website, trying to select one desktop shortcut to upload it, it just opened the file and it didn't allow me to upload the actual shortcut. Do I need different type of shortcut?

any idea?

General Software Discussion / bibliographical references
« on: April 02, 2015, 06:55 AM »

I want to insert some references in a MS Word document.

I want to go to the end of a sentence, enter a hyperlink [1], then go at the end of the document and type the whole title of the reference, ie, 1) Book blah, Author blah, 2010.

But can I do that faster?

is there any better way? to insert reference links and then type in a list at the end, of the references?


General Software Discussion / edit columns in MS Word
« on: April 01, 2015, 09:22 AM »

Is it possible to view the column margins and drag them to edit them?

because I want to make two texts and I cannot make them appear good

the first text has its last line in the second column and the second text is one newline below


General Software Discussion / [IDEA] text recognition
« on: April 01, 2015, 03:00 AM »

there is often needed to translate, or explain, a word or text or even to see some associated text with a specific term (eg. see the list of specs for a specific part number)

to do this, we can create and maintain a database, in a simple text file, or csv or xls, that will match each term with an explanatory text or even weblinks or links to local files

but instead of copying the term, opening the database file, searching for it, etc, it would be nice to have this in a popup easily accessible

but often the term is not in an editable text, but it is displayed inside another GUI that it's not copiable

that's why, it would be nice to have a program that we will select the part of the screen that displays the term we want to look up, and the program will OCR it and then match it in the database and display the associated text in a popup!

that is easily be done I think and it would be nice!


General Software Discussion / create a map
« on: March 31, 2015, 09:37 AM »

I need a simple global map with the names of the countries on it

but I want to enter a list of locations (in the format: city, country) and to automatically put points in the map and a balloon-like that points to the point and displays the city, country info

is this possible?


General Software Discussion / better than textmechanic
« on: March 30, 2015, 08:52 AM »

do you know any website, or maybe create one! that will be better than textmechanic?

it has really useful tools, but it doesn't cover all the possible situations

for example, it doesn't have a function to convert a list of object1, object2, object3, into a vertical list, etc

I would also like to be able to create all the possible combinations between 2 or 3 lists of strings


any idea?

General Software Discussion / metadata solution
« on: March 23, 2015, 10:46 AM »

when I was first exposed to the concept of metadata, it was when I had my mp3 collection
it was amazing that I could store all the info I would ever need (like name of artist, recording year, edition, title of album, etc) and I wasn't limited by the filename restrictions (too few characters, specific characters aren't allowed, need to create a consistent filename template, like Artist_Album_Year or Year_Artist_Album? etc)

now I am again facing that problem, but with files with xls, doc, pdf, zip, etc

am I limited to the filename of these files? or can I store additional information within them?
I am basically interested in a 'second filename': the original filename needs to be maintain for consistency purposes (eg hyperlinks, search/find it, etc) but it is not self descriptive, so I need another filename to describe that it actually is

is there a solution for this? it may not be based on metadata, but I would really like NOT to have a seperate file (eg. excel or text) that will contain the 'second filenames' of the files, because it won't be standalone within the files


General Software Discussion / how can I do this in excel?
« on: March 23, 2015, 07:00 AM »

I have an excel file uploaded in

I want to put hyperlinks of the rest of the files included in the

BUT I don't want to put hyperlinks like etc, but hyperlinks like */file.doc, so that basically to search for the files, it will search within the folder that the xls is located at

I know it's very easy to do it when we are talking about local files (you can make xls search in the current folder for that specific filename and hyperlink it)

but how about files stored in a web server?


General Software Discussion / text to phone
« on: March 22, 2015, 03:18 PM »

I want to write a text file on my laptop and add things during the week, like a shopping list
and after few days when I will go to the supermarket, to be able to read this list on my android phone

is there a solution for this?

maybe do it in a website or something?
but I would like it to be readily available, ie open it on my phone without having to visit a website if possible


General Software Discussion / links of files of a web server
« on: March 18, 2015, 07:26 AM »

I have links of files in a web server (or local) stored in an excel file

If the files are moved to another subfolder, my links in the excel file won't work, right?

what can be done for this?

I was imagining a way that the excel file will search in the web server (but what if the web server changes domain?) and find the specific file and update the link? but the file could be edited and change its content, so there must be a truly unique file identifier

what is the best approach for this?

I suppose web admins or database admins have much experience on this common issue!


General Software Discussion / from excel to a folder structure
« on: March 18, 2015, 04:04 AM »

is there possibility to click a button in excel and do this:

create a folder under a specific directory structure in a website (there is ftp access, maybe ssh) based on the data in some cells

or maybe an external program can do that better? ie. read specific cells and create a relevant folder structure in a web directory? which solution would be more reliable?


General Software Discussion / piston and gear design
« on: March 17, 2015, 10:57 AM »

can anyone help me please create a simple piston and gear design?

we have a piston with a vertical rod at its lower end

then we have a gear attached to that rod




I was thinking of a script
a web script, an AHK script, a macro inside the excel file, not sure yet
that will monitor a specific cell and notify if it is still empty after 5 days or if it is still empty after 14/04/2015, etc
is that possible?
