I find this tiny little utility for creating PDFs from JPGs Useful

Here's some commented, exceedingly simple, code with links in comments. This program is extraordinarily fast. I just gave up my Adobe subscription so was looking for a quick, free, command line PDF tool. This handles some needs very well. It doesn't do any OCR. It isn't very sophisticated. But it's ...

Re: [AHK] redirecting Windows Explorer to XY

Thank you, for the third time, for all your work and your recent updates. This is a very nice script. :appl: You liked my little AHK for opening the 64-bit context menu on Win Right-Click. Win key is a little finicky, so it has to be done this way: ;***XYPlorer*** ;Shows 64-bit context menu on Win-R...

Autosize =0 Still Keeps a Restricted Size

I have truncate files in the middle set (very nice feature, btw) -- but autosize = 0 should still autosize to full, no truncate width, imho. This happens even with single pane and few columns.

XY, character sets, and cmd.exe

I'm an American and know too little about character sets and command line programs - especially where I don't need to see the output at a command prompt, just let a utility talk with XY. My main reason for this is my love of classical music and weird results I get between various programs. After som...

Re: +++ BREAKING NEWS: XY Switches Programming Language +++

Good luck, Don. This is such a mature, feature-rich app, and so well tested and debugged, letting it sit for six months or a year won't hurt a thing. As is, XY will be keeping everyone happy in the meantime. Regardless of where things go in the future, you've really created a fantastic tool as it st...

Re: [AHK] redirecting win explorer windows to XY

Mostly, I just wanted to give you a sincere thank you. Here's another: Thank you! :appl: The only odd thing about this- and this is my bad for not knowing enough about AHK - is that if one pauses the script, it still continues operating: One needs to exit in order to turn it off temporarily, which I...

Re: [AHK] redirecting win explorer windows to XY

This is a few years old, but still incredibly useful. Thank you - really! Solves a problem with several programs I really wish had a custom browser feature - and had even requested of the developers in a couple of cases. I went through the control panel (so far) and updated the excludes for Win 10. ...

Re: Is the easiest way to script downloading a file from the net Paste Clipboard as Item?

*facepalm* How I missed/forgot about the download command I do not know.

*I didn't mean download it into the clipboard. If you have a URL in the clipboard paste as item will download it.

And thank you for your time!

What's the easiest way to check if a tab exists...?

What's the easiest way to check if a tab (in the unfocused pane) already exists, and to use that tab if it does? Else open a new tab to that path? (That last I believe I have down just fine, but I'd like to see how someone else does it; I suspect there may be an easier way.)

Re: dBpoweramp convert to context not opening properly

I don't recall whether this worked for the 64-bit version. But as I'm using the 32-bit version of dbPowerAMP, I did notice that the batch convert function will (now?) open properly on a folder, which is pretty useful in itself.

Re: size of pdf MDBU preview

OK, I now installed PDF-XChange Editor 8.0.336.0 and can confirm that the previews and thumbnails are limited to a tiny 256x256 box, i.e. they are too small to be useful. Furthermore there is no multipage preview anymore at all. I'm not sure if that is a limitation of the Free Version (did not find...

Re: dBpoweramp convert to context not opening properly

The easiest solution, frankly, is to just "Open" a folder containing the things you want to transcode and sidestep the whole issue. There's a long discussion (and rather old) discussing this problem on their forum somewhere or other. Looks like someone got around it by hacking their registry, but I'...

Re: Slow-click, long-name file edits get hidden.

Sorry I haven't been on in a bit. Must have "Show length while renaming" on. Try creating a new file and simply typing off the edge, use a left or right arrow key, type some more. See what happens to the insertion point being covered. I can live without the feature. Didn't really have a screenshot t...
