Textify lets users copy text from such normally static dialog boxes, system messages, program tabs, and more. Ideal for quickly taking down diagnostic/error messages in system testing, the program lets you grab part or all of the needed text.

The program also grabs the "alt" text and URL of web images.

Outstanding program for pulling bits of text out of menu items that resist other tools. I use it at least once every few days for writing HOWTOs or bug reports.

Very nice and quite useful thanks for your work.

What is the template to add commands to the menu list? Whatever i try it doesn't work.

Anyone knows about other cmd replacement that allows you to save commands?

Midas on 2014-07-04 17:45

JPsoft 4DOS/4NT (currently renamed to Take Command) allows you to set up persistent "alias", just check the documentation...
