PDF-XChange Viewer v2.5.322.8

billon on 26 Jan 2018
  • 20MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 24 Jan 2018
  • Suggested by Myles

PDF-XChange Viewer is a feature-rich program that displays multiple PDF documents within a tabbed interface. Edit features include the ability to rotate documents, add comments/annotations to any PDF file, apply custom stamps from any image/PDF file/Windows clipboard, mark-up pages with text and objects, and type directly on any PDF page in "Typewriter" mode. The program supports exporting to BMP/JPEG/TIFF/PNG etc., or extracting text from a PDF page/file. Additional features include capturing the document with the snapshot tool (copies an area to clipboard), measuring tools for distance, area and perimeter, and more. A recommended picture-to-text OCR plugin is available (thanks Bruce) as is a PDF help file.

Reported as functional on Mac/Linux under WINE. Alternatively, PDF-XChange Viewer Portable adjusts paths, with an OCR plugin and help file available from the website as separate downloads.

Note:

  • The free PDF-XChange Viewer lacks some features present in the registered version (payware) and, while some "Pro" features can still be used, they'll add a watermark to the document edited upon saving
  • For 64-bit, see forum post

Why don't I use the PDF-XChange Editor? Simple, I need a PDF viewer, not an editor.

Mixture is correct. Only need as viewer with able to add text comment (download utility bills and mark date paid, less paper stored).

Just realized new version supports dsd in wavpack: "Support for high-resolution DSD audio files compressed with WavPack, i.e. compressed DSF/DFF in .wv files. Note that while DSD-in-WV saves quite a bit of space (in our tests 35-50%) it also takes a bit longer to decode (e.g. to prepare the waveform.)"

@two who are you to call @Realist a troll ? WTF seems a person that flames is a troll, IMHO he was just giving his take on the software review, which I happen to agree with, so am I also a "TROLL"? Sound=music is a very subjective matter which I have heard being discussed since the "4 track" days, as the saying goes one mans junk is another mans gold... at least that's the saying. Try and lighten up on the name calling as it serves no useful purpose here.

Recently, I upgraded to Windows 8.1 Update 1 and had trouble waking up the computer from sleep.

I tried various solutions, but ended up turning off automatic sleep in Windows and using Shutter to Sleep after X amount of time is inactive. Now, I'm able to wake the com up. I understand this is a workaround, but this ended up working for me.

The graphics editor I use most often just to tweak and modify photos and images, especially for desktop backgrounds. Outside of that I've enhanced more than a few presentations by making color edits that PowerPoint's inexact image tools couldn't do. I love this program.

I sought in "Options" and in "Quick Options" but I could not find anything about themes. Where exactly in options?

RainrooM on 2017-02-05 10:21

under Option - Quick paste. There you can change to another theme which comes with the program.
However to create your own looks/theme, you can go to the folder Ditto\Themes\ You'll find some xml files. Each of them is 1 theme. In there you can change the value and select which colars. You'll need to play a bit around till it looks they way you want it to be. Give it a new xml name and then in the Ditto program select this one as Theme as described above.

freakazoid on 2018-01-20 15:14

Website is promising based on its benchmarks, but I found it harder to use than SearchMyFiles. I primarily use SearchMyFiles to find files containing a certain string in a nested directory.

I tried the Content Restrictions tab with the "Files containing string" textbox filled in, but the search was never able to finish completely and I ended up having to manually abort the search, whereas the results in SearchMyFiles was pretty much instant in a second or two.

Even if CSearcher was working correctly, I still think SearchMyFiles is more intuitive and has a more straightforward options layout. The only thing I don't like about SearchMyFiles is its dual-window layout as search results are displayed in another window.

Also, the dependency on .NET makes this less appealing for me.

Quick note for saying that, in case of 64-bit Windows 7, if present all the afore mentioned files (nsndis5.sys, nsndis50.dll, mfc71.dll and msvcr71.dll) will be located at '%WINDIR%\SysWOW64'.

Registry entries might be found under 'HKLM\Software\Bogosoft\', 'HKCU\Software\Bogosoft\', 'HKCR\.ns1', and 'HKCR\NetStumbler.Document'.

Plus, NetStumbler requires administrative privileges.

I just downloaded it using ignoremail. They record your IP address when you download the file, so spoof it if you don't want them to see it. But here's the problem with the software: the executable file opens, but there is no on-screen keyboard anywhere. I was ready to start clicking away to test the product, but there isn't even a keyboard to use. The program is pretty much useless. Even the link that it has so you can visit the homepage takes you to a completely different product. I don't know why this thing is even online.

I usually never complain when there is a way to make a program portable but I have just wasted about half an hour updating (copying, moving, deleting, renaming) the native compressed version of Pidgin. And I forgot that the working Facebook plug-in was not included in the package and had to download it separately (but before that I deleted the "unknown" Facebook profile). Why do the developers still keep the no longer working Facebook-XMPP plug-in and do not adopt the working Facebook Chat (purple-facebook) plug-in is a mystery to me. Pidgin developers offer an offline installer (containing GTK+) and GTK+ for Windows yet they do not intend to provide a compressed portable-ready version for Windows. Updating Pidgin is a pain, as it is a pain to make it portable on first run.

MIKLO on 2016-06-30 14:41

WOW I find this really interesting that this software has been being downloaded or at least talked about for 9 years. Some of the first comments talk about this being worthless and a waste of time cuz Pidgin already has a Portable version. There is also talk about Haller wasting his time doing this... hmmm so what am I doing here also wasting my time? lol Anyway in my opinion any and all discussion even on so called "worthless" builds serve a purpose. If nothing else I get a link in my email letting me know that there is something I can go see and waste my time on some "worthless" and not needed software. Aint life great?

osirisgothra on 2013-11-05 10:51

and a quick FYI about the comment on not having to pay for CSS editing, the "free one' in the program seems to be somewhat of a bad joke. It is a beat-around-the bush feature that lets you do something you wouldnt expect it to, and other features are just plain missing.. they may be there buried somewhere, but to a user who just installed it and is testing it out, it isn't very convincing, I did manage to find some of the features after an hour, and you shouldn't have to go into code to correct something that the editor did wrong. The spell checker seems like instead of correcting words it replaces the word and leaves the misspelled word right next to it. Like I said, maybe there is some option buried but to the new user of the product, it just doesn't do it. I ended up just writing my own simple WYSIWYG webpage editor in a few days and have the functionality i need... sheesh

webfork on 2013-11-05 22:13

osirisgothra: Every WYSIWYG editor I've worked with requires that I go back at some point and fix something in the code that the macro editor side broke. In my experience so far, BlueGriffon does some things better, some things worse. As to the CSS and rigidity, I agree, but the truth is that this is the direction Adobe went with Dreamweaver and I think BlueGriffin is trying to be an OSS alternative to that program rather than a normal WYSIWYG.

Solved: the download on the portable freeware site does not include a file "todolist.exe.manifest" that is required to run on XP. If you have an existing earlier version of todolist, it will have a file "todolist.exe.xp.manifest". Dan the developer advises to rename that to "todolist.exe.manifest". Seems to work.

IanFromBarrie on 2017-01-27 22:54

The download contains the "todolist.exe.xp.manifest" file, and renaming that to "todolist.exe.manifest" works

Free Download Manager (FDM) is a feature-rich tool for handling and accelerating downloads. Includes a site explorer, offline website downloader, scheduler, video downloader (YouTube, Google Video etc.), BitTorrent support and more. An included media file preview prevents downloading mislabeled music or video while a ZIP file preview tool saves download time and bandwidth by selectively removing unneeded parts. A hash check capability can verify downloads and the program can be controlled remotely over the Internet (fdmwi.exe).

Especially useful to overcome unreliable/slow connections that require frequent download restarts, when bandwidth is at a premium, or for very large files.

Alternatively, Free Download Manager Portable is available, as well as a "lite" version, which has not been tested for portability.

NOTE: The program will now prompt for upgrade to the newest version on startup, which is not portable (thanks Joby) and uses a closed-source license.

I also use them as a simple test of AV software effectiveness; if it doesn't pick up these utilities as potentially malicious, then the AV software is clearly useless!

Thanks.

Zback copies Folder Properties, which most backup software does not, according to numerous tools I've tested. For that reason alone I can forgive the rather clunky UI. Love it :)

FileHandler on 2018-05-01 03:28

The interface is a bit of a challenge, not very intuitive. But you're rewarded by outstanding features that are hard to find elsewhere, such as:
- Existing Files only = to refresh a target
- one-click creation of batch-files for commandline
- a kind of fallback-mechanism - it can check for the existence of more than volume label + path, so you don't have to create multiple profiles for different targets that will hold the same backups

CintaNotes v3.11

billon on 24 Oct 2017
  • 8MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 24 Oct 2017
  • Suggested by AlexJenter

CintaNotes is a tag-based, text-only personal notes manager for collecting bits and pieces of information such as thoughts and ideas, article excerpts, quotes, research etc. A global hot key (by default Ctrl-F12) clips pieces of text from other applications such as web browsers or any local program. The window title becomes title/subject of the note and the highlighted text selected becomes the body.

The program is useful to quickly take down and tag any piece of useful text that you come across and quickly organize by date, keywords, title, link and note size. A search tool searches the entire database with search keyword highlighting.

Note: Some features limited to a "pro" version include tabbed sections, pasting notes into other apps, hierarchical tags and multiple notebooks.

@ vmars316: Alternate (Data) Streams are a data structure for holding additional structured data within a file in addition to the main data.
The Windows NTFS file system allows so-called Alternate Data Streams (ADS). With this function, data can be stored invisibly tied by the user to a file.

goodsignal on 2016-10-17 17:54

Dropbox had a bug a while back (https://www.dropboxforum.com/t5/Syncing-and-uploads/com-dropbox-attributes/m-p/63351) and polluted every file with an alternate data stream. Any copy action thereafter from our NTFS drive to a thumb drive (usually FAT32) was interrupted by a warning, "Are you sure you want to copy this file without its properties?" Very annoying! AlternateStreamView quickly and easily fixes the problem, as discovered here (http://superuser.com/questions/814312/is-it-possible-to-remove-the-are-you-sure-you-want-to-copy-this-file-without-it)
