Dasher Accessible text entry

This is an odd post, as the Cambridge University, Cavendish Laboratory project is in archive mode since the project head, David MacKay, passed away suddenly shortly after version 5.00 beta was released in 2016, and the developer of Dasher version 5.00, Ada Majorek, died of ALS complications in 2017....

Re: FenrirFS - file organization / tagging

I am not sure I understand your meaning, webfork. The goal if I understand it is to catalogue a database of files such that the catalogue in FenrirFS is read-only; that is, you cannot thereafter move the source file or rename it. Here is what I can do with it that may or may not answer your question...

Re: is there a file manager that let me tag files and folder ?

I use and swear by FenrirFS . It is tagging software, better than others I've seen, and portable (haven't fully decided if it is stealth, but it appears to be so as it is mostly Windows MRU tags that get set in the registry). So far I have profiles for my documents, academic papers and articles, my ...

Using jPDFTweak for Pocketmod

Many years ago, I reached the limits of the Pocketmod and re:Pocketmod apps. I do crib notes, specialized calendars, anything to have at hand. There is, however, a process using jPDFtweak that for me is easy. I know jPDFtweak is over a decade since its last update, but it is really a powerful PDF to...

Re: PDFArranger (PDF changer utility)

@freakazoid and @webfork I discovered this morning that with PDF Arranger, you do not use cropping, but Page Split ! I never played with PDF Arranger for intricate cropping, but as I play with it this morning, it can do a decent job--like with cPDF and K2pdfOpt, it requires trial and error. I read s...

Re: PDFArranger (PDF changer utility)

A couple of options for cropping PDF files, none of which is perfect for all needs, and all are awkward, to say the least. 1. Briss http://briss.sourceforge.net/ This is a gui that I believe to be portable (requires Java). It allows up to 2 crop boxes per page, and while it is not intuitive, right-c...

You beat me to the punch, MIDAS! I looked at the "Other symbols Key Set", and it is exactly what was missing in the non-Pro versions for my work. https://i.imgur.com/pikA44G.jpeg (Hey Midas, How did you get the image to appear?

Re: What is your largest app on your portable drive?

I remember when I had to move my utilities to a second 1.44mB floppy, if I wanted to keep one as a boot disk (Dos 3.3 through 6.2). Now all my straight portable utilities are 1.43gB, NOT counting portables VLC, LibreOffice, and Firefox. Those were the days.

mutool for PDF image extraction

Just a short note, but I revisited the sparse documentation for muPDF (GUI) and mutool (CLI). mutool is a stand-alone cli with a LOT of options. just about the easiest is the extract (images and resources) I pulled out all the images (including both larger and smaller versions where the PDF had both...

Re: How to pull text out of a PDF and have it wrap correctly

@lintalist, @juverax: I rarely have to convert PDF to images (as opposed to extract existing images) but this works for me (at 300--no patience to do higher dpi) Use Windows 10 Microsoft Print to PDF Use PDF-XChange Editor to export the "printed" pdf to images On the main topic--pulling text out of ...

Re: gInk - on-screen annotator (dotNET)

Nice find, billon! I still create user documents for some things, so this will come in handy, I think. The only think I'd love to add is Text function, because I don't know how anyone writes legibly on the screen with stylus or finger! The fact that you can change the pens into regular or highlighte...

Re: PDFArranger (PDF changer utility)

I agree, webfork. I just wish it hadn't so many dozens of .dll and support files. I favoured pdftkBuilder and i2pdf and some others because they were literally single executable or had minimal support files to keep track of. That said, one other note: you have to have the working directory set if it...
