How to use Notepad++vs6.4.2


The easiest way to open a new document is to press Ctrl and N together. Then press Ctrl + S to save the file. The default title will be new with a number. Press Ctrl+Alt+S to get the File Save As option to rename your document. Use the Find and replace command to remove the desired text (Ctrl+H from the keyboad). NotePad++ can have a Menu Bar and Tool Bar displayed or hide them. Many like to use the keyboard commands and hide the toolbars. If the Menu Bar is open, File > New. From the Tools bar, click on the page symbol with the green + on the left side of the bar.
The full manual is available as a compressed PDF or a compressed HTML file. See: http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/notepad-plus/index.php?title=NP%2B%2B_Guides . For either file, you will need to use your preferred zip program to extract the file. (In most Windows versions, right click on the file after saving it to the Desktop or your Downloads directory and choose Extract All.) Then use Adobe Reader or a similar program to read the PDF manual. Use your preferred browser to read the HTML version. A full list of the keyboard commands is available here: http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/notepad-plus/index.php?title=Keyboard_And_Mouse_Shortcuts .
Nearly any editor will do what you want to do. In Windows, the Notepad may not hold enough lines for this. WordPad probably would work (that's the default .DOC reader). Just remember to save as plain text if you don't want to have an Rich Text Formatted document.
I hope this helps.

A 2 MB xlsx file is taking long time to open and save - consuming 50% of CPU - making Excel screen go white - using 55 MB RAM - auto calculation off - any ideas to resolve this


Solution 1.) If you have installed PDF maker, which can get installed when you install scanner software, the Excel add-on can potentially cause Excel to open slowly. This is more common in Office 2007.

* Close Excel and any other window you have open
* Open "My Computer" and browse to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12\XLSTART
*

* When you open Excel, check to see if the time it takes to open the xls/xlsx is shortened.

Solution 2.) This can be fixed by reinstalling Office but there is a faster way to fix this .

* Go to your Control Panel, (click on Start then Click on Control Panel)
* Click on Folder Options, then File Types,
* scroll down to and select (DOC for Word files) or XLS (for Excel files),
* click Advanced and select Open entry,
* click the edit Button.
* deselect "Use DDE"
* append "%1" (include the quote marks) to the end of the application command line,
* Remove /dde if it is at the end of the command line
* Then click on OK three times.

If the issue was being caused by DDE, then when you now open a Word doc file or Excel els; they will now open faster, without a long pause.

PhotoShop CS3 Droplet automation


Try the following steps
  1. Choose File => Automate => Create Droplet.
  2. Specify where to save the droplet. Click Choose in the Save Droplet In section of the dialog box and navigate to the location.
  3. Select the Action Set, and then designate which action you intend to use within the Set and Action menus. (Select the action in the Actions palette before you open the dialog box to preselect these menus.
  4. Set Play options for the droplet:
    a. Override Action “Open” Commands Open commands in the action refer to the batched files, rather than to the file names specified in the action. Deselect Override Action “Open” Commands if the action was recorded to operate on open files or if the action contains Open commands for specific files that are required by the action.
    b. Include All Subfolders Processes files in subdirectories.
    c. Suppress Color Profile Warnings Turns off display of color profile messages.
    d. Suppress File Open Options Dialogs Hides File Open Options dialog boxes. This is useful when batching actions on camera raw image files. The default or previously specified settings will be used.
  5. Choose a destination for the processed files from the Destination menu:
    a. None Leaves the files open without saving changes (unless the action includes a Save command).
    b. Save And Close Saves the files in their current location, overwriting the original files.
    c. Folder Saves the processed files to another location. Click Choose to specify the destination folder.

    Note: You can record an action that saves using a specified file name and folder. If you do this and deselect Override Action “Save As” Commands, the same file is overwritten each time. If you record your Save As step in the action without specifying a file name, the droplet saves it to the same folder each time but uses the file name of the document being saved.

  6. If the action includes a Save As command, choose Override Action “Save As” Commands to make sure files are saved to the folder you specified (or to their original folder if you chose Save And Close.) To use this option, the action must contain a Save As command, whether or not it specifies a save location or file name; otherwise, no files are saved.

    Some save options are not available in the Batch command (such as JPEG compression or TIFF options). To use these options, record them in the action, then use the Override Action “Save As” Commands option to make sure that your files are saved where you specify in the Batch command.

  7. If you chose Folder as the destination, specify a file-naming convention and select file compatibility options for the processed files:
    a. For File Naming, select elements from the pop‑up menus or enter text into the fields to be combined into the default names for all files. Elements include document name, serial number or letter, file creation date, and file extension. Starting Serial Number specifies the starting number for any serial number fields. Serial letter fields always start with the letter “A” for the first file.
    b. For Compatibility, choose Windows, Mac OS, and UNIX to make file names compatible with Windows, Mac OS, and UNIX operating systems.
  8. Select an option for error processing from the Errors pop‑up menu:
    a. Stop For Errors Suspends the process until you confirm the error message.
    b. Log Errors To File Records each error in a file without stopping the process. If errors are logged to a file, a message appears after processing. To review the error file, open it in a text editor after the Batch command runs.
Give it a try.........

Cannot compress a PDF


I assume you have tried the "reduce filesize" command. Try opening the file in Preview and print it - in the print dialog box select the pdf button, type a name and print. You get a file in the location you selected. This can reduce the size considerably.
