Re: FreePlane Portable

There have been several updates since this was posted about last. I prefer the overall look and usability of XMind, but I have to say that FreePlane is just chock full of features. It also doesn't have any nagging feature lockdowns, as it's not "freemium" like XMind. Now at version 1.9.5 https://www...

TextWorx - text tweaker

It's hard to summarize everything this program does but a few things are: insert various date formats, change case to various different formats, paste as text, delete duplicate lines, HTML tags and a lot more. There are many text editors out there, and not all of them have the text-manipulation func...

Wise Toys - various freeware tools

For those of us familiar with freeware options, these are going to seem fairly simple. While others might enjoy the collection of tools, it takes up a lot of RAM and processes (Electron based) for somewhat basic freeware tools. Issues: the step recorder didn't work for me, the image converter compre...

Works pretty well. Previously I was using RBTray, but that doesn't work with all windows.
Yeah RB was my go-to for a long time. Glad that worked out.

AutoFire - auto-clicker tool

Synopsis : a dead-simple and very capable auto-clicker program. This post has nothing to do with Chicken Invaders Game, that’s just in the program title. In fact, this worked remarkably well with Left 4 Dead 2, which suggests it would also function well on various games based on Half Life 2, includ...

Old thread update:

Website has moved: https://www.hochstrasser.org/wiki/index ... i/FrameFun

I use ShareX for something similar, but this still looks good despite the age.

Re: CherryTree - hierarchical note taking app

I find it's far better to use the native portable version than the Portable Apps version I've had similar experiences. Notably the Folding@Home client (not natively portable), Notepad++, and CubicExplorer (which are natively portable) just seemed to both work better over time. However, the opposite...

Re: Notepad++ - text and programmer's editor

Websites die and it's nice to have good info, and this just goes to show how easy that is (this was created with HTTrack Website Copier -- it's just a copy of the user manual...

Re: Anti-Twin - duplicate finder that can match SIMILAR names

I formerly had a note in the anti-twin entry that it doesn't detect similar text files. I'm not sure what I did wrong the first time but I had a need for a batch similar content checker so I retested this with two slightly different text files: https://i.imgur.com/LQo38ip.png Seems to work fine.
