NewFileGo Official Release

Version 1.05 of NewFileGo has been officially released. This version corrects issues with offline drives and missing folders when starting a watcher. If the path watched in on an offline drive, NFG will restart the Watcher once the drive is connected. If a path no longer exists, the Watcher will be disabled. NFG also now marks why a Watcher is not started.

Rename Master Official Release

Version 3.15 of Rename Master has been officially released. The goal of this release was to tweak the interface to improve discovery and to logically relate controls with items.

The Renaming Step window has been changed. There is now a visual indicator for the currently selected Renaming Step. There's a visual indicator for the "More" context window on the selected step. There's a visual indicator for "pinned open" steps. You can also show the "File Tags" window using the insert button on a Renaming Step. So, one doesn't have to "leave" the Renaming Script area to do this. There's a new area dedicated to controls specifically for the Renaming Steps with plenty of room for growth. There's a new help button in this new area to better describe the how to interact with this list.

The Insert/Edit Meta-Variables window has been completely redesigned. There's a natural left-to-right work flow. You select a variable, preview the results using a selected file, optionally format the results, and finally insert the variable into. There's a droplist list directly on this window for changing the file used for generating previews. There's also an option to keep this window open when you need to insert more than one variable at a time.

The File List now has help and information panels that display when using the manual rename box or when a collision or illegal name is detected. For example, the collision detect dialog has a button to uncheck all the problem files. The panel for the manual rename box has buttons to select part of the filename and describes how to use the up and down arrow keys.

The About window now has an button to perform an automatic backup. This feature is also "VirtualStore" aware, so any files redirected by the Program Files protect of Window will still be included in the backup.


These changes are the results of feedback sent by hundreds of users. As always, thanks to those that took the time to help improve the program.

ArsClip Official Release

Version 5.31 of ArsClip has been officially released. While there are no new features (save one) in this release, several bugs have been addressed. A lot of work has been done to find and fix several small memory and graphics leaks. After a long period of running and showing the Popup, the program could seemingly "freeze" the desktop until the process is terminated. Dozens of minor issues have also been addressed in many parts of the program.

New "Online Code Examples" have been added to the Edit Permanent Clips window. This is technically the only new feature. These new scripts show how to use the new JavaScript window manipulation routines to do complex copy-and-paste automation routines with just a few lines of code. Based on your feedback of this feature, I plan to add new example scripts. The next script added will be a "virtual text clipboard" that can be used with global hotkeys.

ArsClip Official Release

Version 5.30 of ArsClip has been officially released. There are three issues addressed in this verison. The first issue is discovering settings in Configuration. The second issue is working with formatted text. The last issue is adding macro and scripting features for more automation.

There's a new "Search" button added to the Configuration menu. Since settings for an item (eg. Pinned Clips) can be found in multiple places, the new search feature helps discover other related settings. A few of the descriptions have also been changed to contain explicit keywords so items are not missed in a search.

Working with formatted text clips in Windows is difficult. There's no built-in way to see what formats are currently on the clipboard of which formats a target program supports. When pasted text fails to paste, it's hard to know why it failed. ArsClip already adds clip-type indicators for RichText and HTML Clips on the Popup and on the Clipboard Bar. AC, however, is designed to extract a single preferred format (using Configuration settings).

This version of ArsClip adds more utilities for working with formatted text. The Clipboard Bar can now make Permanent Clips using any found formats, not just the first found preferred format. Several Permanent Clip/Macro routines have been added for extracting formats from the Clipboard and detecting clips on the format. So, a Permanent Clip can copy clip formats independent of the Configuration settings. The Edit Permanent Clip window has also been updated to make working with clip formats easier. A new internal RichText editor has also been added to this window.

Many more routines have been added to Permanent Clips/Macros to increase copy and paste automation. ArsClip now includes more Mouse and Window manipulation routines for JavaScript. These include routines for finding the current focused window or a window by its title. These windows can be forced into the foreground or minimized/maximized. Both Popup and Pinned Clips can be fully iterated in JavaScript for string searching an manipulation. New PROMPT commands have been added for selecting from a predefined list and for repasting the results of an earlier prompt. A new Popup Clips command for adding the clipboard as a specific format has been added.
