Text 2 Folders v1.1.6

webfork on 26 Aug 2016
  • 922KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 15 Feb 2015
  • Suggested by guinness

Text 2 Folders creates folders based on list written in a text file. This contrasts the normal method for creating multiple folders, which is clicking "New Folder" repeatedly and then renaming the individual folders. Just create text document in Windows Notepad or other text program and save it, then run the program to generate folders. Separate folder names by putting them on a separate lines in the text file. For example a text file with the following text:

Documents
Pictures
Music
Video

... will create the directories Documents, Pictures, Music, and Video.

Occasionally, i use a procedure that ends up time consuming anyway:
1. search for desired file search app (usually, regex in filelocator lite).
2. select filenames in results.
3. "export" those filenames to clipboard.
4. paste into batch file, with appropriate text find&replace

and manual edits to create batch commands.
5. run batch

@granny Are you sure FreeCommander can do this? I know it can create nested folders separated with a slash, but how can it create peer folders? FreeCommander XE supports | to separate folders like TotalCommander, but plain FreeCommander doesn't.

fSekrit v1.4

smaragdus on 25 May 2018
  • 57KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 3 Dec 2009
  • Suggested by dasfx

fSekrit is a notepad that encrypts saved information in self-contained executable (.EXE) files. Created files don't need fSekrit and can be access by simply double-clicking the item and entering the correct password.

Uses the widely recognized 256-bit AES encryption and unencrypted data is never saved to disk, making it even more secure.

Functional in 64-bit.

Category:
Runs on:Win95 / Win98 / WinME / WinNT / Win2K / WinXP
Writes settings to: None
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: No
License: Freeware/Open Source (github)
How to extract:
  1. Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice.
  2. Create a new file called fSekrit.portable
  3. Launch fSekrit.exe.
Similar/alternative apps: CryptoTE
What's new? - fixed: long-standing bug where failing to save changes when closing fSekrit
with a modified document would cause fSekrit to exit, rather than notifying of
error and let user attempt to save again.
- fixed: saves are *finally* done properly, by saving to a temporary file and
replacing the current file only when all the file writing business is done.
- added: font selection dialog, no longer do you need to much around with the
registry to set another default font. The font is still not stored in your
document, though, and is single global per-user registry setting.
- added: "portable" mode, which (for now) means it will not use %TEMP% to store
it's temporary editor executable, but instead store it in the same folder as
the opened document. Registry is still used for font selection, though!
To enabel this feature, create a file called "fSekrit.portable" in the same
folder as the document you want to function in portable mode.
- added: URLs are now recognized and turned into hyperlinks.
- fixed: Read-only notes should be a lot more sane - changed from confusing
"make read-only" that half-worked to "Save As Read-only" that works :)
- fixed: Win9x and NT4 support has been broken since version 1.35. Release builds
are now done with an older compiler toolchain, and 9x/NT4 support is back :)

You can easily get the fsekrit program from the wayback machine at:
https://web.archive.org/web/20170214195855/http://f0dder.dcmembers.com/fsekrit.index.php it says it is also valid for Win7 use.

Sherman J on 2018-05-26 12:56

I found that the version of the zip for fsekrit on the waybackmachine for 2015 is valid at 49kbytes size, the some in later snapshots are only 10kbytes and do not work.

@Sherman J
You do not need to download fSekrit from The Internet Archive, you can get it from its official website.

@outskirter: I had the same problem while testing the latest version (MS Sans Serif font isn't really ClearType friendly); solved with ResHack by finding all instances of 'MS Sans Serif' and replacing them with 'MS Shell Dlg'...

freakazoid on 2013-07-05 14:58

Was testing some Notepad alternatives the other night, and while TED Notepad is relatively small in size, it uses almost 4x the memory (hovering around 9MB). Just a FYI.

My current preferred notepad replacement, after swapping the hideous default icon with the the vanilla one from notepad (TY, ResHack). Shame it doesn't do text case conversions, then it would be perfect -- as it is, I use a well known commercial editor for heavy duty text editing and nfoPad (totally portable from v1.56, see post @ http://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=5409) for nfo file viewing. For the rest, Win32Pad is lightning fast and perfectly fit for the common text checking/light editing tasks. I don't hesitate to recommend it!

@Midas, re: viewers for ANSI art (code page 437, extended ASCII)

Just thought I'd mention that some of these viewers contain translation fonts. A while back I extracted an ANSI/NFO viewer (don't recall which one... maybe getDiz), located the fonts and placed them in my system/fonts directory. This makes any editor ANSI-capable because the work is being done by an external font.

Thought I'd mention it in case your main editor supports font-toggling (toolbar button allowing a quick switch between two system fonts, example: metapad) in order to avoid switching editors just to view some of the text 'graphics'.

Midas on 2012-04-20 11:19

@Pax: great tip. Still, I'll be keeping NFOPad (http://www.portablefreeware.com/?id=2164) 'cause it's convenient and I sometimes make adjustments to viewed files...
