Normally I'd agree with the flexibility of an ini file, but for this particular application (sobriety), I think that having the date "hard coded" might be more appropriate(?)

Re: [GDI+ Object] Subtitle.Render() - Beautiful Text on Screen

Actually, another possible glitch: It seems that, when the text is rendered, all {Tab} chars are stripped(?) This is the case whether reading from a text file, or a variable from within the script. I don't think it's tied to the .Desktop part.

Re: [GDI+ Object] Subtitle.Render() - Beautiful Text on Screen

EDIT2: Eh, the Desktop() function is really buggy. It's not consistent on all versions of Windows and disappears after Win + Tab is pressed. Still experimental, not sure if it should be removed or kept. Kept please! :D Thanks for the tips! Yes, I had noticed that there are fundamentally different w...

Re: [GDI+ Object] Subtitle.Render() - Beautiful Text on Screen

Straight to Evernote :) :thumbup: New question: What is the proper syntax for using a variable in place of the font color? You can see here, where I've tried a couple of different things that don't work. #NoEnv ;NOT WORKING #SingleInstance force #include <Subtitle> varTop := "Top line here&quo...

Re: [GDI+ Object] Subtitle.Render() - Beautiful Text on Screen

Thanks Iseahound! I thought I had tried that permutation--but I guess not. Tip for anyone using different font colors: Iseahound seems to have made subtitle.ahk observant of all the CSS colors, by common name. They are listed here , if you're not sure what colors the names correspond to. Inconspicuo...

Re: [GDI+ Object] Subtitle.Render() - Beautiful Text on Screen

Question: Is it possible to have separate bits of text drawn to the Desktop? Ah ha. I see now that it was the second "new" command that was easing the first part... Which seems like a no-brainer to me now. :mrgreen: The second question is still open though... Bigger Top Line. Smaller, seco...

Re: [GDI+ Object] Subtitle.Render() - Beautiful Text on Screen

It does seem to work for me on Windows 10.
First I had to remember to update the Subtitle.ahk file in my /lib/ folder though :)

And yes--it's all the way at the bottom... Even below my other text that is pinned to the Desktop!

Re: [GDI+ Object] Subtitle.Render() - Beautiful Text on Screen

This is very cool Iseahound! Thanks for sharing it. I definitely want to integrate this into my tool that prints text onto my wallpaper. (Technically I believe it's a transparent GUI that is pinned to the desktop.) I thought I'd tweak your first example and try to pin it to the desktop. I copy-n-pas...

Re: [Script] KeypressOSD - Display key press on screen

Actually, I have an interesting idea... Rather than "Left Click" and "Right Click," have "Left Mouse Click" and "Right Mouse Click." Then, if the user holds the mouse button down, the display changes to "Left Mouse Down" or "Right Mouse Down.&qu...

Re: [Library] Chrome.ahk - Automate Google Chrome using native AutoHotkey. No Selenium!

Thanks for your work on this, GeekDude! It's a bit above my ability to fully understand, but I wonder: Would it be possible to use this for setting the default printer in Chrome? I have a nice AHK script that (at system startup) reads my IP address, then sets my default Windows printer. Chrome doesn...

Re: Hotstrings sometimes not working Topic is solved

Thanks for clarifying this lexikos! I actually did notice the first item in the list of workarounds, but I'm using AutoHotkey as a portable application, so I'm guessing this precludes that ability to run the setup(?) As a side note: I stopped using the "installed-version" of AutoHotkey bec...

Hi folks, this thread "evolved" from my other one here https://autohotkey.com/boards/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=43809&p=200932 The fix for my other problem, was to make sure my script is running as an administrator. I did this by right-clicking the .exe, choosing Properties, then Compatib...

Re: Hotstrings sometimes not working Topic is solved

Okay, I'm marking this as "answered." I started using to most recent version of AutoHotkey again and have enabled "Run as administrator." The problem has not occurred even once. Unfortunately if a script is made to run as administrator, then it seems that you can't put in in the ...

Re: Hotstrings sometimes not working Topic is solved

Just a quick reply: Thanks lexikos! I'm not sure how to check if Word is running as administrator, but it's worth noting that the problem was occurring most often in my explorer replacement which does definitely get ran as administrator. I told my scripts to run as administrator as well (per the rec...
