Spread32 - basic spreadsheet

#1 Post by helvecio34 » Sun Jun 08, 2008 6:14 am

Hello,

I use SPREAD32 to do some tables. Now I need to print them, but I can see how to do it.

File -> Print or Ctrl+P

In my copy of Spread32 (version 2.01), there's the normal Print entry in the File menu, which also offers the standard keyboard shortcut in parentheses (Ctrl+P).

In the last freeware version (1.18) [http://www.321download.com/LastFreeware/page14.html] there is a print dialogue. Note that versions after 1.18 are not freeware, but are shareware.

Thanks, Cornflower - I switched to the last free version. I don't remember where I got 2.1, but I had somehow thought of it as nagware - even though the nag popup states that it's shareware! Version 1.18 seems to be just as good, anyway.

According to the web site, http://www.byedesign.freeserve.co.uk/devdiary.htm the current version is 2.02 .

The version without the Print dialog is probably the one from the FloppyOffice bundle, in the database.

Version 1.18 is a good find. The program uses the registry, however. (Although, you can run it from a USB stick, recent files and such are what is stored in the Registry.)

I liked this program so much that I registered it. I have talked to the author several times. In Version 2.02, Stephen started to make it portable. However a small bug remains. The next release has it fixed. No word on a release date, though.

Regards,
Dan

I use version V19991112 Beta, the last freeware release.

It´s very instable.

Thanks for all

Helvecio

That is not the last freeware release (version V19991112 Beta) - it's the very limited release in Floppy Office / Tiny USB Office that is completely portable and stealth.

As Cornflower said, the last free version is 1.18

For lack of a better option, I made the present one the official forum topic for Spread32 (http://www.portablefreeware.com/?id=561).

Spread32 isn't fully portable, since it saves (some minor) settings in the system registry at 'HKCU\Software\Bye Design\Spread32', which this can be solved with the following config for yaP launcher:
  • Code: Select all

    ; configuration file for yaP v0.6.19 (http://rolandtoth.hu/yaP/)
    ; application name: Spread32
    ; version: v1.18
    ; website: http://www.byedesign.co.uk/
    
    [GENERAL]
    application = App\Spread32.exe
    ; commandline = 
    ; workdir = 
    
    [BEFORE]
    regkey =  HKCU\Software\Bye Design\Spread32
    ; dir = %Appdata%\Dir
    ; file = %Appdata%\Dir\File.ini
    ; regkey = HKCU\Software\RegKey
    
    [AFTER]
    -regkey = HKCU\Software\Bye Design :: ifempty
    ...
    
Spread32 homepage is at http://www.byedesign.co.uk/, but it has gone shareware in latest versions (currently v2.05; changelog is at http://www.byedesign.co.uk/devdiary.htm).

Spread32 v1.18, the last freeware version, can be downloaded from http://www.321download.com/LastFreeware ... l#Spread32.

@webfork: please amend OP/move this topic as you see fit. Thanks in advance. :)
