I noted there is a specific disclaimer on the site, http://www.ecobyte.com/replacetext/ "Please note that Replace Text is no longer supported and has known problems with some Windows 7 installations."
However, there is no further information on what those issues are. (I am using Win 10) and noting the recent review date (March 25 of this year) was curious to see if this great app is functional on current systems (preferably before installing)

Best Free Drive Cloning Software 2 months 2 weeks ago gazzawazza

Hi Andy

Thanks for that.

I'm happy with Macrium but needed a decent free option for a friend and had ended up having to upgrade to the paid version of macrium because of a problem I experienced with the free edition i.e. I didn't want to impose a paid for backup solution upon my friend, if there was a a decent free alternative.

I simply heard about EaseUS and gathered it was decent but couldn't see it listed.

Thanks for humouring me and sorry to give you more work.

I'd just note that macrium too requires the odd paid upgrade. They definitely don't nag though. I purchased it in 2009 and have paid for an upgrade once (i.e. effectively two paid licenses). Macrium are now advertising version 7, which claims to use a new backup technology which could be 60 times quicker (though the technical explanation notes this is in regard to incremental / differential backups). They are also talking about a very interesting virtual tech implementation, which basically generates a VM off of a recovery image (fascinating for a technie like me).

Let us know what you think of EaseUS.

Cheers,

Gaz

This program is frustrating because it takes so long to load every time - I don't know why it is so slow to load (10 secs to load on my Windows 8.1 with 8 GB of RAM).

Update - the slowness was caused because somehow my computer put this program into compatibility mode for Windows XP. Once that was changed, everything was back as expected. So I blame it on Windows (as usual), not Jarte.

Paragon Backup & Recovery Free Edition 2 months 3 weeks ago crombierob

I like to keep things simple, especially relating to creating image backups of my whole OS
EG I always have windows closed when creating an image.
Paragon took it upon it self to create it's own partition (without my permission), and maybe messed with my MBR
If I knew it was going to do that in advance and someone offered me $500 to let it do it, I would not let it anywhere near my main important PC

7-PDF Maker 2 months 3 weeks ago foodbear

I have able to get 7-PDF maker to create a PDF file from an Open Office produced paper that contains many superscript footnotes with corresponding endnotes. The OpenOffice text file works great by itself: footnote and endnote are linked in Both directions. But creating a PDF using 7-PDF Maker only creates the link in one direction: from the footnote to the endnote and NOT back to the footnote. So then you have to manually scroll back to the beginning of the paper to find where footnote is located.

Question: Am I not doing something correct or will 7-PDF Maker only keep the link in one direction and not two.
Please help if you can.
Thank you

Epic browser was recommended to me by a friend...thinking of downloading that one. Not too sure about Brave browser though. Will wait to see if others say it's really as good as it says. There's also CLIQZ Browser which I have downloaded, comes with Ghostery and an ad blocker. Doesn't allow add-ons, which they say, and I agree, is safer. Based in Germany...at least the techs I emailed are. They explained why no add-ons, but did say if there are any security add-ons we think we need, then email them and if they haven't already checked them out, they will at that point. Going to be checking it out for a few weeks.

Thanks to Rob for this update. But this Zac Bowman guy sure is a Win 10 fanboy. His final sentence: "Windows 10 is finally good, and it's time to start taking advantage of all the new Windows 10 improvements, especially if you're still using Windows 7 or Windows 8.1."

view
Be Brave. Try This Great New Browser. 2 months 3 weeks ago Australia

Thanks for the recommendation - I had never heard of Brave before
The speed of webpage browsing is very good, and so the ad blocking feature seems to work very well
However...
I installed it in early April 2017, and with only 3 tabs open, the memory usage on my Windows 7 machine was at least 600MB
I then opened my portable Firefox browser, opened 3 tabs, and the memory usage for Firefox was 300MB

My major desire is a browser that protects my privacy.
Speed of loading is also important, as long as this doesnt mean a large memory footprint
Blocking ads is great, but again as long as this doesnt mean a large memory footprint

At this point I will give Brave a chance, but the moment I find the memory usage is compromising my other PC work, it will find another browser that respects my privacy
If Brave can have a smaller memory footprint, then I would switch for all the advantages described above

The author of the program apparently was the cofounder of the Mozilla project, and it looks like he wants to disrupt the current internet business model. The underlying premise of Brave, is "removing websites of most of their ads and all tracking, and replaces those ads with its own.
I see an inherent issue in the long term, just what ads will instead be displayed, and is it a matter of time before Brave advertisers want to track you as well. We will see.

Two quick questions:
Why does Brave, without many features or plugins, still have to use up so much memory ??
What other browsers do NOT track your details or browsing habits, and dont have a huge memory footprint - I am interested to know
(I will check TechSupportAlert reviews for the answer !)

Perhaps they're on an equal on that level, but Epic may have the advantage of being more compatible with Chrome extensions.

Having confirmed a false positive using the method indicated by Remah, you should then report this to the vendor. In the case of 360 this is a bit difficult as, to the best of my knowledge, their online and email submissions only provide for file analysis. They do have a forum but only for the Chinese language. There are often issues with installed security software that users need to research and indeed this ability is vital to the effective use of the product. IMO it is always better to use a product that provides support in your native language. You can also use these resources as a further check for site safety.

Now I understand that you are talking about images in HTML clips. They can have many ways of linking to binary data. That's why some of them are shown always. some are show for a while (from temp files) and some are not shown at all. Many factors may influence this behavour.

Hi, thanks for your reply and for a nice piece of freeware : )

When I first tried your program I saw no graphic previews at all, just locations the same as in the left hand pane. After experimenting a bit further though, I've found that graphic previews are shown for jpg files from my hard drive but not if I right click and copy an image in Firefox. For png files on my hard drive, ClipAngel shows previews for some but not all. It's not a big issue though, it's not something I would use often anyway.

The preview as it is, now that I have found it, is fine. No need at all to change that in my opinion.

I did wonder though, is there or could there be, a button to show/hide the right hand preview pane and only display the list? I know I can resize it but a toolbar button or hotkey would be handy.

I've tried Magix stuff before. It's alright and earlier versions that I've tried came with a nice selection of loops and samples etc, so users can get stuck in straight out of the box so to speak. I'm guessing that this version must include similar stuff, going by the size of the download.

For anybody who wants a truly fully-fledged digital audio workstation though, Reaper Audio is the only choice imho. I've used it for years (though learned just a couple of weeks ago that Reaper is developed by the same guy who made Winamp). I find it very solid and capable and easy to use. It does pretty much everything that the big commercial names do (even basic video editing and fx in the latest versions) and can be used indefinitely with no license or registration. The license is ridiculously cheap for software of this quality.

There is a learning curve of course, unsurprising given the potential complexity of Reaper. I like Magix, I think it's friendly software and good for people to jump into making music on a home set up if they are new to recording and sequencing etc.

Yes. It is not good. But .Net Framework 4.5 is not supported on Windows XP.

If your current clipboard manager satisfies you then no need to waste time trying every new one. I made Clip Angel because none of existing satisfies me. I tried about 30 of tem and my top 2 were: AceText and ClipDiary. I am coder/developer. So my most actions on PC are related to writting code.

Are you speaking about Clip Angel? If so, I would appreciate if you describe your crush in detail.

Ditto is really technically good, fast and light. But it has minimalistic non-standart UI and some other issues for me...
I tryed to begin using Ditto many times in last 10 years but unreliable execution of Paste command in non english input language kills my attempts every time. So my Clip Angel was done with big attention to reliability, compatibility and conveniency of main functions - find the right piece of data and send paste with it.
I could not find in Ditto way to quickly switch on/off word wrap. Clip Angel has many hot switches (tool buttons) allowing quick change many combination of modes.
Ditto UI requires to manually switch focus to filter field by pressing TAB to begin filtering. Clip Angel does it automatically - pressing UP/DOWN/PgDown/PgUp you select clip in list and in the same time pressing symbol keys, Backspace, RIGHT/LEFT, ... you change text filter.
I could not find how to turn on HTML rendering in Ditto. Clip Angel has good support for HTML rendering with switched on "Native formatting" mode.

Some people like minimal UI. CLCL is the best for them.
Other like speed, fuctionality and then minimal UI. Ditto is the best for them.
I am not from those 2 groups. So I made my Clip Angel =)

This is nice, but you can now add Google maps to X-plane 11 getting this type of scenery PLUS what X-plane puts on top of it.......getting the best of both worlds.

Web of Trust (WOT) 3 months 2 hours ago eikelein

Why do you guys seemingly don't "care" about Google, Apple, Microsoft and practically all the other big players doing the same thing?

And mentioning "Panorama" is a dead give away for me. I am a German living in the US and Panorama is one of the IMHO worst leftist "Fake news" TV shows; IMHO very unreliable and sensationalist.

Please take the time to read the last article on pcejh [dot] com for a background opinion to this infantile situation.

And BTW, Google had WOT removed from their download page for extensions but shortly after WOT changed the wording of their EULA Google restored it again.

Mozilla being a European "institution" with heavy German influence just stubbornly refuses to do the same. Sad state of affairs for the average, non-geek home user.

And to the site.editors and everybody else who might be inclined: Thanks for not removing the info after "read the last article on"; there are NO sales pitches there at all.
