Q: Will you be bringing back tabs?

A: No, it will require too much recoding, and be a big trouble to handle with RichText as well.

Well I have done that, but it repaces stuff with ~

File can be found on the first post AV1

It has now:

  • The edit boxes do not scroll horizontal, to keep text all together
  • Shorter tab names when opened
  • HotKeys only work when the window is active
If anyone has any bugs then please tell me.

Also please make changes or whatever to the code and post them.

Hey, I wrote a similar script a looong time ago. I don't have the time to look it over or fix things since I am currently much too lazy. This may give you some ideas (i.e. my Font configuring, and word count). Hopefully this still runs with the current version, it's a messy script so don't scream at me for ugly scripts :P

Here's the code:

(SNIPPED, this is now included in new vers.)

Take some ideas from there, the font idea seems pretty good.

Good Luck with your project,

I quite like this :)

Maybe you should make the Speech function into another menu:


Text to Speech-->

Read Text


Change Settings

Test Speech

Overall I like this! :D

ok if you must know it would great if you included the includes it needs to run as not everybody like me may have a copy of the menu udf lying around. So all I get is an error sue to the missing udf.

I agree!!

... and i like a pic on the first page as a visual to what it looks like

27 downloads? Someone must must! have something to say.

Hey, this is pretty cool, I like your idea of having tabs... One thing I would recommend is making all the details labels or maybe just making the edits readonly... It seems kind of unprofessional to be able to change all that stuff (just in my opinion :) ) Also, if you do keep the edit boxes I think it would look better if you made the middle on an input box because it wouldn't have the up/down arrows.

Also, if you do open or save and then cancel it dies... might want to fix that

EDIT: I'm I missing or something or is it supposed to save as just 'Files'.... Then when you go to open you can open something you saved... (and under the save/open menus you have document spelled wrong on the last option)

Thats alot better, with speech functions.

I think this is great, and I hope you and _kurt do well with it.
