2. Clipstac & Clipseek

[Back to Summary]

graphic

Program 1: Clipstac (Inspired by Clipstep from Skrommel) version 2.0 

 

 

graphic

Program 2: Clipseek (Inspired by Seek, Coder: Phi)  version 2.0

 

 

    

 

CLIPSTAC  Multi-Clipboard was originally based on Skrommel's Clipstep, which is a 

clipboard extension app that uses only [Control]+v and [Control]+c and [Control]+x  

to allow clips to be stored as numbered .CLIP files.

Using the normal "COPY", "CUT" and "PASTE" keys, Clipstac stores the Clipboard as ".CLIP" 

files, and allows selection of stored "Image" or "Text" clips for Re-Pasting.

 

The normal Windows System Clipboard can be utilised using the new hotkeys:

[Right-Control]+V and [Right-Control]+C and [Right-Control]+X.

The Mult-ClipBd facility can be disabled by setting "ClipBlock" (Right-click Taskbar Options,

or the hotkey [AltGrey]+[Shift]+C). If ClipBlock is on, the Windows System Clipboard

reverts to the usual keys:  [Control]+v and [Control]+c and [Control]+x.

(ClipBlock-On does not affect Clipseek or ClipX program features)

CLIPX (part of Clipstac):  

A new "ClipX" program allows clips to be appended to a temporary store, which can

be separately saved. The Menu is accessed with the key [AltGrey]+M to set mode.
The menu allows selection of Text or Image/File clips, or auto selection by the program,
which stores both Clip types separately and allows each clip to be viewed and selected.

Since most Clips are only used during current session, text-clips are discarded unless

deliberately saved to a Clip-group. In a new session, previous clips can be recovered.

Individual text clips can be pasted in various ways, or combined. The features include:

 

- Copy, Cut & Paste to ClipX uses [AltGrey]+V and [AltGrey]+C and [AltGrey]+x.

- Clip contents are displayed in a table to facilitate selection.

- Allows embedded Control codes within text to control edit functions while Pasting.

- Can Auto detect Text or Image Clips. Image clips are listed and  separately stored.

- Operates with external programs (like Irfanview to view clipboard images)

- Can perform Searches based on Clip-content to locate clips.

- Text-Clips can be edited and saved.


Clipstac works with CLIPSEEK, a new program (modified form of Seek from Phi)
which has two different modes of operation:


CLIPSEEK CLIP Mode:
- Displays large table of clipboard CLIPs and shows Clip content
- Predefine a Permanent directory for pre-configured applications to store clips
- Allows Selection criteria to preselect clips to be displayed, many modes offered
- Provides alternative Pasting options and other functions
- Copy/Cut/Paste Selected block of clip-content from and to clip files
- Clip files can be Re-numbered, and multiple files can be copied, moved or deleted
- Can add comments to individual clips, mark clips to preserve/display at top of list
- Allows automatic Form filling using the .Clip0 extension clips
- Copy/Cut/Paste Selected block of clip-content from and to clip files
- Permits unaffected CUT,COPY, PASTE to original Windows Clipboard


CLIPSEEK DIR Mode:
- Displays (Recursed) list of files (and directories), shows file contents/properties/icons
   for common file-types and common graphics. (uses external programs detailed in help
    file)
- Allows Selection criteria for filename AND/OR contents to preselect files to be  
   displayed,  many modes offered.
- Can preconfigure settings for Active programs/Apps/extensions, which are

   automatically selected by ClipSeek when run, or can be manually selected, once .ini

   file is configured.
- Various display, selection and sort options
- Allows files to be run (if File association exists)/ or Directories to be selected.
- Allows selected files or directories to be copied, moved or deleted.
- Allows listing of Apps (Link files etc) in StartMenu and StartMenuCommon, to search
   for and run required application.
- Can allow MS Word (2000) Document files to be listed with block of contents, on

   which Selective search can restrict list, to aid in file selection, and run MSWORD with
   selected file(s). Can display contents of many files within directory listing.
- Clipseek can use external programs to display contents of: Excel (.xls) Documents,
   .DOCx files*, .HTML files, .pdf, .rtf, .chm, .zip,7z,GZIP,BZIP2,TAR files.
- Permits use of command-line parameters to preselect scanpath directory, which
    can also be pre-defined for programs (or file-extensions) in "ClpSrch.ini" file.

Clipstac launches automatically each time system starts if its shortcut is placed in the "Startup" folder.
To launch Clipstac manually, click it's shortcut  on your Desktop.

Program Help File

To refer to the program Help file, right click the clipstac icon on the Taskbar:

3. Clipseek Supplementary

[Back to Summary]


Clipseek Supplementary Programs:

Text files and clip files and WORD .DOC files etc. will be displayed (with wrapping) in the Clipseek Viewer pane.
In addition, a number of other formats can be displayed in the Clipseek Viewer when external programs which are
recognised by Clipseek are placed in the \!filscrpt directory.

This version can use LibreOffice 3.5 (from The Document Foundation) from:  http://www.libreoffice.org
(Freeware) for reading following files: .DOCx MS WORD document, .odt ODF Text document
  .ott ODF Text template, .sxw Open Office.org text document, .stw Open Office.org text template.

If Convert Doc from SoftInterface.com (NOT Freeware) is installed, this program provides much faster .docx conversion,

HTML files: To convert HTML files to text, this version of ClipSeek allows the use of an external program:
  HTMLAsText v1.10,
  Copyright (c) 2004 - 2009 Nir Sofer
  Web Site: http://www.nirsoft.net

HTMLAsText is an excellent program for Converting HTML files as a console tool, and if the appropriate configuration file "HTMLConv.ini" (as supplied in Clipstac.zip) is present in the Clipstac\!filscrpt directory, along with HtmlAsText.exe, ClipSeek will use this program to view HTML files.

Most forms of RTF file will also have contents listed.

7-Zip:
Clipseek also detects presence of 7za.exe in \!filscrpt directory, and uses it to reveal the contents of zip, 7z, GZIP, BZIP2, TAR files
Also, if the file "README.TXT" or "FILE_ID.DIZ" exists in zip,7z,GZIP,BZIP2,TAR files, an excerpt (2000 chars) of the contents are displayed in the Viewer pane before zip contents list

7za.exe is the Command line version 4.57 of 7-Zip
7-Zip Copyright (C) 1999-2007 Igor Pavlov.

7-Zip is a file archiver with high compression ratio.
7za.exe is a standalone command line version of 7-Zip.

Features of 7za.exe:
  - High compression ratio in new 7z format
  - Supported formats:
  - Packing / unpacking: 7z, ZIP, GZIP, BZIP2 and TAR
  - Unpacking only: Z
  - Highest compression ratio for ZIP and GZIP formats.

Source code of 7za.exe and 7-Zip can be found at http://www.7-zip.org/
-------------------------------------------------

For PDF and CHM files, Clipseek also detects presence of "Text Mining Tool" which is a freeware program for extraction of text from files *of the type: pdf, doc, rtf, chm, html without need to have installed any other programs like Word, Arcrobat, etc.
This program can be* obtained from: http://www.text-mining-tool.com
If the included console tool, minetext.exe, exists in the \filscrpt directory, clipseek will use the program to display text in the Viewer pane.
Clipseek will utilise other programs (not freeware) which are not included in filscrpt.zip file.

To test the Clipseek viewer pane, all the files in the filscrpt.zip must be placed in a subdirectory of the main Clipstac directory,
named "!filscrpt"
Unzip filscrpt.zip to the Clipstac directory. The !filscrpt subdirectory is contained as the path within filscrpt.zip

(Above programs included in Clipstac_Setup if this was downloaded)


In addition to the programs mentioned above, Clipseek and Clipstac automatically detect and use a  number of programs if they are installed on the system.

FileDate_Order:
For Clipseek to amend Date/Time stamp, an additional program has been developed,  and is available on this site, called FileDate_Order. This program also offers many new features,  including incremental date/time modification to allow ordering of File and folder links in a "Desktop" Window (particularly for Desktop folders on Windows 7/8).

Clipstac & Clipseek automatically detects if FileDate_Order is installed
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

To_ClipboardPath:
To assist Clipseek (and FileDate_Order) to detect and select the path (and selected file) in an Active program Window (prior to running Clipseek), the new program "To_ClipboardPath", which is included with Clipstac, should be installed. The program places a shortcut "2_ClipboardPath" on the Context and SendTo menus. It is available on this site.

Clipstac & Clipseek automatically detects if "To_ClipboardPath" is installed on the system.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

 

 Irfanview:

IrfanView is a compact, easy to use image viewer. More than that, you can also edit images directly in IrfanView, to produce a variety of effects.
IrfanView was created by Irfan Skiljan.

It is a freeware program available to download on the official site:

                http://www.irfanview.com/

or from the download site:   http://www.irfanview.com/main_download_engl.htm

This program needs to be installed for Clipstac and Clipseek to display image files. Clipstac (and Clipseek) will automatically detect and use this program if it is installed.

4. FileDate_Order (& WinFileSequ)

              v.1.2         July 1, 2014       Freeware

[Back to Summary]

  FileDate_Order:

 The following is a working program,(modified to work with Clipseek).

 

FileDate_Order (& WinFileSequ) facilitates the ordering of icons in desktop folders on Windows 7/8, and Vista when the window is set to order by Modification Time (descending).
 

Windows 7(8) does not allow re-positioning of icons in a desktop Window, by simply dragging icons from one position to another, - A feature available in every previous version of Windows!.

Since it is MUCH easier to locate icons quickly within large desktop folders, if they are ordered by function and personal preference, I find this utility (containing 2 programs) is extremely useful.

The program can automatically SEQUENCE the Date/Time stamp for each file (icon) in a Window.

The program facilitates icon placement (i.e. moving icons), also offers substitution of link files for sub-directories, and can insert "Space" links for blank positions.

The program can also create "LOG" files (recording files & modification date/times) for each Window to allow fast export. Importing from LOG file will amend file-dates for all icons and reset icon order.

FileDate_Order detects an open Active window and displays a ListView of all files contained, ordered normally by Modification date/time.

In addition, a Status Bar control shows information about the currently selected folder, which is the root folder for the Tree View.
Note that loading might take a long time if an entire drive such as C:\ is specified. The program can operate in console mode, taking parameters which define the target folder (or file), (and also can pre-select operating mode). It is also possible to "Drag & Drop" a folder onto FileDate_Order icon.

If a Windows folder is active when the program is run, or if an explorer type program is showing a selected folder, FileDate_Order or WinFileSequ should pre-select the same path when run.

This program can alter Modification Date/Time for individual files, or selected groups, or entire folders. It can also automatically SEQUENCE Modification-Date/Time (descending) for a group of files in a folder, allowing ordering of icons displayed in a desktop folder when the window is set to order by Modification Time (descending).

The order can be viewed if the "View" option is selected (or pressing F6). The Trig setting on the main display sets the number of icons displayed in all rows. (Set automatically if Windows folder is active before program is run).
From the "View" display, the "Right-Click" menu allows a number of tasks to be performed.
The program "Clipseek" (see above) can automatically detect if FileDate_Order is installed, and uses the program to amend Date/Time stamp.

The program offers many new features,  including incremental date/time modification to allow ordering of Files and folder links in a "Desktop" Window (particularly for Desktop folders on Windows 7/8), or within a folder, to provide an ordered display.

 

  WinFileSequ:

          v.1.2         July 1, 2014       Freeware

[Back to Summary]

 

A special program is included, "WinFileSequ" to operate directly on the window, capturing each icon in the order it is displayed. "WinFileSequ" can be run from the main program when "F8" is pressed.

WinFileSequ can perform a number of tasks which are selected from the "Right-Click" menu.
These tasks include:

- Export to a LOG-File (Filenames, and date/time)
- Move icon(s) to a desired location (See help file)
- Insert a blank-space link
- Remove a blank-space link, (or all blank-space links)
- Exchange a subdirectory for a Link file
    (The original directory is moved to the -0-0- folder on the desktop)

Program Help File  

To run FileDate_Order Help file, click the blue "?" icon (top right) on the FileDate_Order Menu display.
This will run a .CHM help file or run the HTML help file if downloaded.

Alternatively, right click the FileDate_Order icon on the Taskbar:
{Right-click->FileDate_Order}->Help.
This will run a .CHM help file or run the HTML help file if downloaded.

FileDate_Order help is also available in .PDF, HTML and WORD .DOC format.

5. Subscript

[Back to Summary]

  Subscript SubFinder

             v.1.2         July 1, 2011          Freeware

 

Subscript creates a table of lines within an editable file which contain a predefined "label".
The Label consists of predefined characters (Marker) which must appear within the selected
lines.

The Table, which can be alphabetically sorted, shows text adjacent to the label and selecting the entry from the Subscript table clears the Label-List and sends commands to the editor to find the selected line in the file. For default extensions listed on key "TxtTypeExt=", when the Label-List appears, pressing a letter (A-Z) will locate the entry starting with the same letter. The "Search" command string is configurable for editors specified in the "Subscript.ini" file, (the default command is [CONTROL]-F), and default for "GOTO-LINE" is [CONTROL]-G).
It is not normally necessary to redefine "Clear-Block", but is optionally configurable.

The option exists to redefine label selection to include marker at the START-of_Line, markers at START OR END of line, or lines with predefined markers at BOTH START AND END of line.

Labels can be predefined within Subscript.ini for different specified file .extensions. In addition, provision is made for defining an ALTernate Label marker, to select a different group of lines.

The Label-List can optionally also display last 10 selected Labels, and allows rapid selection of top of file (@TOP entry)
and END-of-file (~~Bottom~~). The Label-List can be scrolled to show remaining text (comments) on the marked lines.

Also, the program allows creation of a file "TAG" list recording Line-No. and starting text to quickly TAG up to 10 locations within a file, facilitating fast return to originally TAGged locations. These locations do not need associated Label-markers. These TAGGED locations are stored along with the associated filename for up to 20 files and remembered between editing sessions.

Within the program ini file, provision has been made to quickly define up to twenty NEW file extensions, along with START marker, END marker, Alternate marker and marker selection mode, (e.g. START/END of line, or BOTH).

The following file extensions are predefined within Subscript for extensions:
    .txt,.txx,.bat,.ahk,.rtf,.doc,.docx,.dot.
using a colon at START-of-Line, or END-of-Line. The Alternate marker is a double colon "::" to mark "Headings".

The INI file extension ".ini" is also predefined for section labels within the program The program will automatically identify Section Labels within .ini files

The example Subscript.ini file provided, uses the first configurable file extension to provide a simple example for .HTML files.

B. Requirements:
///////////////
The program is a utility which works closely with a program editor or text editor. It requires an editor which offers Keyboard shortcuts for the following facilities:
"Search" facility (Usually initiated with Control-F)
"Goto Line", default is Control-G

The program assumes the following keyboard shortcuts:
"Goto Top", default is Control-Home
"Goto Start of line", default is [Home] key
"Goto End of line", default is [End] key

If the Editor "WindowTitle" does not show the current edited file and extension,(e.g. .AHK or
.TXT or .BAT etc,) the editor must show filenames in Tabs, these being first Window controls.
Subscript should work with most editors.

platform: win9x/nt/xp/vista
Subscript has been tested on XP and Vista

Label-List:
/////////
Selecting "SORT List ON/OFF" at top of table will toggle list-SORT option.
Default is SORT OFF (ini file key: SortLst=0), so labels are not ordered alphabetically.
When Label-List is displayed, select label using mouse or cursor keys. "Enter" selects label.

Label-List also includes:
" @Reload S-List" - Create new Label-list (Exclude defined "AltLabel" Subs)
" @Reload Alt-List" - Create new Label-list (using only defined "AltLabel" Subs)
" @SORT List On" - Set display to "Sorted"
" @T-Lmark: + END" - Switch Label marker to START/START or END of line, or BOTH
" @TOP" - Goto top of file
"~Bottom" - Goto end of file

AltMark:
///////
For ".ahk",".bat",".txt",".DOC","RTF" files, the default AltMark is a Double-Colon, "::Label" or "Label::". This is configurable.

The program also offers the option to list the last 10 labels selected.
For "Labels-List", the last 10 labels selected can be shown beneath " @TOP" in the table, these "Prev-Labels" being stored under the "filename" edited, in SubscrTag.ini, which stores data for the last 20 files for which subscript was called. After the list of "Prev-Labels" there is an entry " ~~~~~~~Clr~Prev~", which if selected clears the "Previous-labels" listing from the subscript Label-list, (No alteration is made to the edited file).

"Previous-Label" feature can be turned on/off by Right-clicking the Taskbar icon and selecting "Setup Label/Tag".

Note:
Only the settings for the Last 20 filenames are kept.

The program also provides a quick "Label-Tag" List to record 10 locations, which are saved and recalled for the last 20 edited filenames in which subscript was run. These locations can be transferred directly from the "Label-List" into a "Tag-No.", or from the edited file.

More sophisticated editors allow Syntax highlighting, which can be configured using Regex to colour/highlight headings and labels like ":Heading".
Subscript can provide fast navigation to "labels:" and ":Headings" and ":Labels" with optional listing for (folded) labels of the type "Label::"

There is more support for text file (label) Headings and ".AHK" labels and the Editor, EditPad Pro.
File labels of the form ":????? [Tab] [;]Comment",or "?????: [Tab] [;]Comment"... etc.
are also accepted with comments displayed.
".TXT" file labels of the form ":A.[Tab]?????",":B. ?????","B: ?????"... etc are also accepted as Start Labels, using default text file marker.
In ALL cases, {Tab} characters are automatically removed from Search text.

F. New File/Label Definitions:
/////////////////////////
The subscript.ini file contains keys for twenty new file extensions under [Settings].
The "PresetExtN1" up to "PresetExtN20" can each define a new file-extension for the program.
So the file extension "PresetExtN1" allows new Label markers (StartMarkN1 and EndMarkN1) to provide the Label identifier, for start, and optionally an end mark, or BOTH.
The "EndMkMode" key is "0" for START marker, "1" for START OR END marker, "2" for BOTH.

As an example, using ini file section names within an .ini file, identified as Labels:
....
PresetExtN2=ini
StartMarkN2=[
EndMarkN2=]
AltMarkN2=
EndMkModeN2=2

Note: .INI files are already programmed into subscript.
Other keys are available to further refine Label definition as detailed in the Help file.

The subscript.ini file supplied here is using the first of these presets for a simplified HTML definition.

6. ToClipboardPath: 

[Back to Summary]

To_Clipboardpath      TWM @2013   Simplified (Clipseek) version  v.1.0C

 

 

A separate program called "ToClipboardPath" should be installed for Clipseek and FileDate programs (above).

This program is also included with "Clipstac" on TWM Software.

 

The installer, "ToClipbdPath_Install.exe" creates a link named "2_ClipboardPath" in the

"Context" and "SendTo" menus.

 

 

Operation:

Right-Click on a file or directory to display the "Context"/"Send To" menu, and press the "2" key,

or click 2_Clipboardpath". (Assumes no other menu-item name starts with "2").

 

 

When run from "SendTo" or "Context" menu, the program "ToClipbdPath.exe" stores

"Selected Path" or "Selected filename (with path)" on the Windows Clipboard.

 

In "IniPath" mode (set by a calling program), the path is stored  under [Current] section in the ToClipbdPath.ini file, leaving Windows Clipboard is unaffected.

 

 

MENU Display:

Once Context/SendTo menu is displayed, hold "F1" key down, then type "2" key (or click "2_Clipboardpath"), to launch the 2_Clipboard Menu. Release the "F1" key when Menu appears.

 

For advanced users, the ToClipbdPath.ini file can be modified to run a a number of programs, passing Directory/Path\Filename as parameters (see example shown in accompanying text file).

 

By this means (using an external program such as example shown in the zip file), it is easy to Right-click on an icon, or file, press "2", and run a file-Manager to display the target directory. A dir compare could also be run where appropriate.

 

 

 

Install:

To install ToClipboardPath, download the .ZIP file and Unzip to a directory of choice. Then run the Installer, "ToClipbdPath_Install.exe", to install to a selected directory.

To install, download Tbl_Select.zip and unzip to a new directory, and create shortcuts.

A path and Tbl_Select parameters can be passed in the properties box of that shortcut.

 

When Tbl_select is first run from the new program directory, the program will create new

shortcuts within the "MAIN" and "TOTAL" program sub-directories.

It also creates a shortcut on the desktop which should be pinned to the Taskbar (from Properties).

 

Uninstall:

If installed originally from the Tbl_Select_Setup.exe installer, simply run the Uninstall link.

Otherwise, delete Tbl_Select directory and the relevant desktop shortcut to Tbl_Select.exe.

 

 

 All programs compiled in AutoHotkey (vs. 1.0.48.3) and .ahk source files are included with program for
 modification purposes. If re-compiled with later version, the program may fail  to operate correctly.

 

 


OPERATION:  (SUMMARY) 

 

On clicking the program shortcut, Tbl_Select will run and display the "MAIN" directory list.

Files like .txt and .doc included in "MAIN" directory would be run according to File associations.

The list is ordered normally according to Modification date, but if Sort ON is clicked, the program default will change to alphabetic sort.

 

All Sub-directories of the "MAIN" directory can be displayed by pressing "F8" or click the "Sel_Dir" button. The "Sub-Dir list" displays no icons. Selecting a sub-directory from this list will alter the the Tbl_Select path to display files within the selected Sub-directory.
Click "Sel_Dir" button again or press "F8" to return to the "MAIN" directory.

Pressing Control+F8 key, (or Holding Control key down (0.5 seconds) and  press "SelDir" button) displays the Path-link shortcuts, from which a new path can be selected, (or press "SelDir" button to return to "MAIN" List). The Path-shortcut "TOTAL" shown on the Path-link list enables selection of the "
\TOTAL" subdirectory which contains an alternate Listing.

The Right-click menu allows operations like copying shortcuts between directory lists, show Properties, re-set extension filter etc.

 

 

 

Shortcuts:

 

Example.

           c:\Program Path\Tbl_Select.exe "C:\windows" <optional parameters>

 

If NO "Path" parameters are passed to the program, the program creates a Table containing files present
in the "MAIN" program subdirectory of the Program Path \MAIN.

 

Pre-select Extension:  (Examples)
Include "--txt" in program parameters, to list only .Txt files.
Include "--exe" in program parameters, to list only .Exe files.
Include "--Jmp_Ctrl" in program parameters, to jump immediately to Path-link table  (#.lnk shortcuts
for pre-programmed paths)

.

Examples:
To list only TXT files in the C:\MyFiles folder:
        "[Program Path]\Tbl_Select.exe" "C:\MyFiles" --txt
Alternative format:
        "G:\B\W\CUtil_Tbl\Tbl_Select.exe" "G:\My Documents" --txt --mht
        "G:\B\W\CUtil_Tbl\Tbl_Select.exe" "G:\B\W\Bk_Ext_A" --ahk,ico,txt --jmp_ctrl

The List should normally be ordered, i.e."Sorted", by Modification Date, not alphabetically.
The program "Winfile Sequ" is used to order Window Icons (by Modification Date) if desired.

 

"Sel Dir" button:


If "Sel Dir" is clicked (or "F8" pressed), only Directories contained on the "Path" are shown

and are available for selection (Double-click or "Enter" with entry selected). If a directory is selected,

(Double-click or "Enter" with entry selected), it will be passed to the program  for contents to be listed.
To return without selecting a directory, press "SelDir" button again.


Note that the "Label" on the top line, (starts with @SORT), shows directory being viewed.

If the Program is run again, it should start by displaying the Program \MAIN directory.

 

 

Path-link Table:

 

Note that the "Label" on the top line, (starts with @SORT), shows directory being viewed.
Pressing Control + "SelDir" button (or Ctrl+F8) shows the included Link shortcuts ending "#.lnk" or ending " '.lnk" containing "Path" parameters which are passed to the program if selected.

To return to the normal \MAIN directory, click on "SelDir" button, WITHOUT control being pressed.

If the Program is run again, it should start by displaying the program "MAIN" directory.

Pressing Control+\  switches to Program \MAIN directory.

In addition, the second entry added to the List is "{MAIN}# : Source". If this is selected, the program "MAIN" subdirectory is displayed. and pressing Control+F8 displays the Link shortcuts on the Program "\MAIN" subdirectory (if they exist).

 

(If pressing Control + "SelDir" button, a slow system may require "Control" be held down for up to 0.5 seconds before "SelDir" is clicked)

 

 If the Link "_T_S TOTAL PathLnk#" is clicked and run, the  Path-links on the subdirectory of the Program Path \TOTAL are displayed and

 pressing F8 displays the shortcuts    on the Program "\TOTAL" subdirectory (if they exist).

 The "TOTAL" program sub-directory should contain all the previously used paths if they might be needed again.


Path Restore:

 

 To return to a previously viewed path, press Alt+F8. A total of two previous paths can be

 retrieved, alternating if Alt+F8 is pressed again. (Alt key must be raised before re-pressing).

 


Dir_Win Button:

 

Using the program path, the Dir_Win button creates a Desktop Window showing Directory contents.

 

 

 

 

INI file:
If key "SortIndent=1" under "Settings" in INI file, each new line in directory Window (12 items)
causes indentation of the Table filename. Note, using indentation limits key-press selection of items in list.
If "@SORT ON", SortIndent is cancelled.



 

Table Size:

 

The default Table size allows a filename size of approx 29 characters.
The width of the table extends to limits set in the INI file, to accommodate the longest filename size.

The table width expands to key (limit) "Wid_UpLim" set in INI file. The table will not expand further,

so a scroll-bar appears at the lower edge of the table.
Set key (limit) "Wid_UpLim" in INI file to limit table size increase. Set =29 to inhibit

 

Control Features:

 

Key, Control+\           - Switch to Program \MAIN   directory

 

Special keys under Settings group in the INI file can be programmed with a path, e.g.

 

Def_T= Switch to Program \TOTAL directory  (Press Ctrl+T )
Def_D=C:\Users\..user..\DeskTop
Def_Q=C:\Users\..user..\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch

 

In this example:  pressing "Control+D" would display the Desktop files in the Table,
and pressing "Control+Q" would display the Quick Launch files in the Table.

Note that Control+C,V,X are excluded, as these keys have other uses.
