Re: Brosix Portable IM

After installing, the program directs you to a website called "Brx.World" I contacted brosix about their Brx.World but I'm not going to bore anyone with their response, which I didn't understand. It's a community or something. In related news, smaragdus was kind enough to test out the base program ...

Re: TestDisk - Data recovery: Partition Table / Pictures

TestDisk pulled me out of the fire yesterday. I had my primary backup drive (Western Digital MyBook) lose it's partition table due to what I think is a failed drive case. TestDisk got it back but oddly I had to still run a standard Windows disk check (via the drive Properties menu, not chkdsk). I ha...

Re: Brosix Portable IM

Strange development on this program. After installing, the program directs you to a website called "Brx.World" (https://brx.world), which is not mentioned on the Brosix site but describes access some of the premium features for free. Even more odd, it doesn't appear on the Brosix home page and requi...

Nope, it shows a warning message when "Ditto" is found to be running on your system.
Makes sense, thanks.

Re: ClickMonitorDDC (screen tweaking utility)

So I've added ClickMonitorDDC to the database (https://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=2982) but before you vote, please note that I don't actually know if it's portable. I realized that the machine I used to write up the program description and other details can't actually run the program as ...

Quick test with a few problems:
Thanks for your initial analysis here. Even if the author hadn't come in to respond to some of your notes (which was great by itself), I find these very useful when deciding what software to dig into.

Re: Do not use Microsoft Store

sounds like something the authors of the actual software has to resolve; probably fair better to bring it to their attention. If you dig through the various github threads, it appears that was attempted without success. https://github.com/NickeManarin/ScreenToGif/issues/292#issuecomment-497995880 h...

Perhaps you could tip off gHacks or similar about the issue and lack of response. Perhaps it'd give MS a nudge :D
They have a financial incentive NOT to do anything so this is probably the only route to success.

Re: font viewer with filter

Great question. NexusFont (as billon notes) does allow filtering by name. So if sans/monospace, or serif is in the name, that would work. https://i.imgur.com/cQiyR3y.png FontManager (cross-platform, probably not portable) might also do some of what you're looking for, including spacing: https://font...

Implemented detection of "Ditto", a popular clipboard manager for Microsoft Windows.
That's my copy manager of choice. What does detection do? Just disable "Clear Clipboard" while the program is running?

Re: Firefox Portable

I would like to know if there are addons free (or pay) that allow you to print web pages (or parts of them) on a pdf file, as well as do (well) Chromium. The previous version of PDF Edit was among my favorite extensions, and carried a remarkable amount of functionality. I miss some of those extras,...
