Alternative to Forum Posts Editor?

Postby Stamimail » Thu Jun 21, 2018 11:03 am

I'm looking at posts like this below, and I'm asking myself how such an author wrote such a post. It's not an easy task to do with the current Forum Posts Editor. I guess he used some Editor or some Script?

  • added randomized everything search option
  • added 1:1 scroll option
  • added rotate options
  • fixed a bug when navigating to the next image from the first image (165 KB) (175 KB) (54 KB) (64 KB) (1 KB) (244 KB)

Randomized Everything Search is a very efficient way to randomly view any image on your computer:
  • In void Image Viewer, Press Ctrl + E
  • Type in a search, or leave the search empty to randomize all images on your computer.
  • Check Randomize.
  • Click OK.

There is no play list in randomized mode, so there is no going back to the previous image.

To enable 1:1 scrolling:
  • In void Image Viewer, from the View menu, click Options.
  • Click the Controls tab.
  • Change Left click action to: 1:1 Scroll.
  • Click OK.

To rotate an Image:
  • In void Image Viewer, from the Edit menu, click Rotate Clockwise or Rotate Counterclockwise.

Another "bug" or maybe intended :) , before using VIV i had pictures not correctly oriented so i rotated them and saved them, it display correctly oriented in windows 10, but when these pics display on the slideshow there are incorrectly oriented again, maybe it has something to do with the exif metadata of the orientation of the pic which is use first?

Reading exif metadata for rotation is on my TODO list.

Another thing, when i use keywords for the search it only compare to each file name, but it would be great to include folders' name too

Please try using the path: modifier to search for folders, for example, to find all images with the text wallpaper any where in the full path and filename, search for:

I was also wondering, is keywords entered will also match tags of the pics in metadata ?

This is on my TODO list for Everything, however, don't expect this to be fast, as this information is unlikely to be indexed.

For URLs, Quotes & stuff like that, I use Copy URL+ (a Firefox extension).
(Won't work in current FF. Suppose it works in FF 52 ESR? It does work in SeaMonkey. Maybe there is something similar for current FF?)

Wow. It's not like the normal editors, where you can Add/Remove formatting by hotkeys.
For me, it takes much more time to edit posts like you made.
