Re: Discussion about recent events

Dear Andrew Speaking as a relatively quiet but frequent user, I want to record my appreciation of the manner in which this site is run. I find it extremely useful and it is often my first place for review/comment about portable freeware. My appreciation extends to all the mods and the hard work you ...

Re: Softmaker FreeOffice

@Webfork - "Finally, someone" - that was probably me! I really like this application and use FreeOffice 2018 as my main Office program both installed on my laptop and portable on the USB stick I carry with my car keys. Thank you for taking the time to write up an alternative set of steps for portabl...

Re: Softmaker FreeOffice

Softmaker FreeOffice (2018) reads and write DOC & DOCX, PPT & PPTX, and XLS & XLSX and it normally does so with no error I can discern. On the very rare occasion that FreeOffice scrambles the format, I go to LibreOffice - also in portable format. Never have I needed to resort to paying for Microsoft...

Re: Softmaker FreeOffice

I am interested by the statement of vevy on September 11th that Softmaker FreeOffice (2018) can be made portable and helpfully he gives some instructions to use. For many years Softmaker Office (both paid and free versions) have included a utility to make a portable version which works very well. I ...

Re: McGill Rhyming Dictionary...

Interesting piece of software ... but how do I make it portable? ... and how do I get rid of the nag screen on startup?
Thanks.

Re: How do you update your Portable Collection?

My method is really simple - I check this website daily! I find there are enough other people tracking and posting changes to keep me adequately up to date. It would be a shame to waste all their hard work! :lol: Sometimes, I also check portableapps.com but mainly this site serves just fine. /opsima...

Re: Coffee

It seems that no good deed goes unpunished! :( I feel sorry that Lupo has received this verbal trouble in response to his efforts to build a better app for us all. I like PortableApps.com and use a number of John T. Haller's apps. However, in this case he is speaking beyond his knowledge base and ha...

Re: DropIt

I must be missing something!

I just downloaded the latest version of Dropit from https://sourceforge.net/projects/dropit/ and it came packaged with a setup program that produced a decidedly non-portable install :cry:

Can someone help me to do it right?

Thanks.

Thanks for your confidence in my abilities, but I need to leave the answer for this one to Lupo.

Re: Coffee

Opsimathic did indeed mention something important about enabling software such as FreeCommander and QDir to work with Coffee, unfortunately I was vague and non specific. I solved my own problem, but did not leave a good trail of info to enable others to solve their similar problems. Coffee refers to...

Re: My top 10

Sorry to be a little slow on the uptake - but how do I get Pstart to automatically run applications on start-up? The three apps I always run are FreeCommander, TinySpell and Coffee - it would be great to have then start when Pstart starts without my manual intervention.

Thanks.

Re: CAFE custom configs

Can Coffee be configured to work with Free Commander? Under C.A.F.E. I added the string "fenetresadditionnelles=ahk_class TfcForm" to the .ini file under the configuration section. Is there an equivalent instruction that can be used with Coffee? Thanks! /opsimathic OK - I have answered my own quest...
