Many thanks for developing us DropIt!

One cosmetic issue here (WinXP SP2) - 's' chars at line endings are chopped:

Add one BIG dropit target, remove two folder shortcuts from my desktop: nzb blackhole, and pix

I wish I could make the drop target smaller... 25% of it's current size would be nice

or: hot corner


drag a file to the extreme top right corner of the screen for dropping action

The icon can be smaller just edit the .ini file.

As an example just see mine below:

Quote:
[General]
PosX=1248
PosY=740
LockPos=False
OnTop=True
SizeX=32
SizeY=32
AutoForDup=False
Duplicates=Overwrite
Mode=Move
AskMode=False
DirForFolders=True

[Patterns]


Of course there would be a few file types here but that is edited out.

Unless of course you meant the size of the .ico file itself?

If so you could just get XNview and edit it to a smaller resolution, though that may violate Lupo73's user agreement, Probably ask him first.

And of course the Idea of a mouse position that would activate it sounds cool, though since I have reduced it to so small, x is half the size it was it does not get in my way at all and can even be relocated to hover over the TaskBar if you use it

I think the feature that allow to resize the icon is enough. Note also that the software icon is open source, so you can decide to resize it and use the smaller one.

About your links, I'll try them. :wink:

I have released a new minor update with some bugs fixed and under Open Source GPL. :wink:

The project is active on Sourceforge and any collaboration to improve it is welcome:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/dropit/

I can not seem to find the files on SourceForge I hope this is just me.

My experience with dropit was always great except when I tried it after pattern matching was added.

I would like to be able to skip the pattern matching for a majority of file types,
I am sure that there is likely a way to do this but since I am not used to pattern matching,
I do not know what to put in the ini file.

Please give an example of an all inclusive pattern for txt files.

If such is not possible, I would like to just download Version 0.5.3,
I think the last version before Pattern matching was added.

Or it would be great to just be able to turn off pattern matching in the ini file, or turn it off by file type in the ini file.

I can see some utility in Pattern matching but not for all files, all the time.

Thanks Lupo73 your application is great (I just do not know pattern matching)

Files were not visible for a sourceforge issue, I think, now are available again.

Patterns support doesn't exclude the previous use of DropIt by file formats and is configured to create this association by default.
In fact if you drop an unknown file on it, a message allow you to add a pattern association. Click Yes and a window is opened to add the association, with automatically set "as example" the pattern to associate the file extension: *.txt
So if you want to use it with file format associations, you only need to use the default pattern when you drag and drop a file on it. If instead you want to use a more complex pattern syntax, you can click Rules to see pattern instructions (you can find here examples of patterns supported). :wink:

Given that DropIt is designed to work also with the "old mode" of formats association, I prefer to keep available the software only from this first open source release 0.6.1 that is stable and complete (older versions could include issues).

Try now to use it.. I never used patterns before too, but it is simple and I decided to keep formats association as default to make software use fast.

I did as you said and of course it worked.

I did notice in Vista Service Pack 2 that the words in this dialogue screen were cut off.

Image

Oh and by the way when trying to find a general association for folders (and contents of course) I found that the previous extension 'folder' was replaced by **, other than that to avoid associations and to deal with all of a particular file type I just added the *. to all of my previous settings and it works great, just as you said.

Thanks, Lupo73

This is a very handy little app.

Would be even nicer if you could hide/unhide the drop target with a double click on the systray icon.

Is there any way to add dropit target to the "sendto" context menu?
I know this would make it a non portable,but it would certainly make it even more versatile.
I tried adding a shortcut manually but it just activates the program,it doesnt send to the target.

At any rate..big thank you for this app
I love it.
