Tools come in a variety of sizes and weights. I had a
prof who created the hammer theory: Give a child a hammer and suddenly
there are a lot of things that need hammering. Most of the tools I
find on the internet are little ones that do a job that is a pain to
do without them.
If your monitor is covered in yellow sticky notes, you might have the
same problems I do. How do you keep track of various information from
the internet or the phone and have it available on your computer. So
here is a digital solution.
The program works just like you would expect a sticky note application
to work. The notes can be completely customized with different colors,
fonts, and even transparency. The notes will stay in place until you
close them, which entails that even if you reboot, they'll still be
there. They can also be figuratively put to sleep, and can then be set
to appear at a specified time period. Free! Keep your eyes open
when you do your download. There are commercial versions too.
If you need to share a document with someone and you want sorta the
ultimate compatibility, then you need to print a PDF file. When
a file is saved in PDF, it can be read or viewed by any computer,
whether it's a Macintosh or a PC. You can view PDF files using a free
program called Adobe Acrobat Reader. When you see the file on screen,
it will look exactly the same as it did in the original file.
The Portable Document Format (PDF) was created by Adobe and Adobe will
sell you some very expensive software to create PDFs. But, if you try
PrimoPDF's free download, then the PDF option appears as a new
printer in your print menu. Just choose that printer and you're away.
Why is it free? They give you the free one and if you need extra
capabilities then they want to sell you their better product. Take the
freebie and run!
I often have material that I copy from a word processed or desktop
published document and then paste into my web editor. But I don't want
to copy the font or the underlining or the italics or any of the other
formatting. I want to be able to format it in the web editor. I used
to remove the formatting by copying the original text, pasting it into
Notepad to remove the formatting, copying the text again in Notepad
and then pasting it into the web editor. But there's an easier way.
does the job. Copy the text to the clipboard, click on the Pure Text
icon in the system tray and all formatting is removed! Then just paste
into the target document. My rating? 10 out of 10!
