Subject: [*] CopyPaste-X 1.0.2 - Multiple Clipboards for Mac OS X

This version of CopyPaste-X is internationalized. It runs native in English, French,
German, and Japanese, with online documentation in each language.

One of the early wonders of the Mac was its revolutionary ability to do
copy and paste across various applications. Unlike other areas in the
Mac's system software that have changed and progressed over the years,
copying and pasting has not evolved. How many times have you found
yourself going back and forth copying in one application and pasting in
a different application, wishing to yourself that you could copy 5-10
items at a time, then go to another application and paste each of these
items. CopyPaste gives you this and much more. It turns out that having
additional clipboards is incredibly useful. CopyPaste eliminates tedious
repetitive work and increases your ability to get the job done.

CopyPaste-X magnifies the clipboard in many ways:

*Clipboard Extender - adds 10 easy to access clipboards via menu or key
command. Without CopyPaste the Mac has only one clipboard.
*Clip Recorder - remembers the last 100 items copied via command c and
keeps them in a stack.
*Clipboard Editor - Edit any clipboard by simply double clicking in any
clipboard palette.
*Save Clipboards thru Restarts - allows all 100 Clipboards to be saved
thru Shutdown or Restart. Without CopyPaste the Mac does not save its
clipboard.
*Drag and Drop - allows dragging anything to and from the CopyPaste
Palette. Not only selections from a program, but also text, picture,
sound or ClipSet files can be dragged. Now uses Quicktime to read files.
*Clipboard Extender Palette - a floating windoid that allows you to
view/use all 10 clipboards in Clip Extender and in Clip Recorder.

Change in version 1.0.2:
Bugfixes:
*when dragging anything to a CopyPaste palette and dropping it to some
other place than a valid clipboard. This no longer crashes CopyPaste
*The screen position of the palettes are retained now more precisely
*the find function now shows the correct selection range when "Allow
misspelling" is selected

Improvements:
*Copy and Cut by keyboard now happens without delay. This increases
speed a lot.

New features
*the find function now allows to find words that "Sound alike".

Subject: [*] Finnish V&N - foreign language learning

This is a collection of dictionaries for the language learning program
"Verbs & Nouns" prepared by Alexander Esser .
The user can look up and learn Finnish words and furthermore question and
practise derived words (declinension and conjugation). The dictionaries
contain more than 2200 basic words (verbs, nouns, and adjectives) and
nearly 300 000 derived words. More dictionaries are in preparation.

The dictionaries translate from Finnish to German, but non-German speakers
might still find them useful for learning derived words.

"Finnisch V&N" offers the following features through "Verbs & Nouns":
- Looking up the German translation of Finnish words
- Looking up Finnish words fitting a German translation
- Showing forms derived from a basic word
- Tabular compilations according to grammatical criteria
- Grouping of words according to various criteria
Flexible exercises:
- Translation Finnish - German
- Translation German - Finnish
- Questioning of derived words
- Learning quiz for translation Finnish - German
- Learning quiz for translation German - Finnish
- Learning quiz for formation of derived words
- Games "word guessing" and "anagrams"

Haxial Launcher is a program designed to make it faster and easier for
you to launch/open other programs, documents, folders, or URLs. Launcher
allows you to create buttons with menus that contain the items you want
quick access to for launching. Alternatively you can setup abbreviations
for items, for example, type "ml" into the text box, hit return, and your
mail program will open (if that is how you configured it). You can also
assign system-wide Hot Keys to open programs etc. For example, wherever
you are, merely hit the F9 key and your web browser will open (if that is
how you configured it).

Haxial Launcher is available for:
MacOS 9 or better (with CarbonLib 1.3.1+, 1.5 preferred).
MacOS X (10).
Windows 95 or better.

Subject: [*] I Ching Connexion X 3.0.2 (Carbon); The Book of Changes with a new view

I Ching Connexion X 3.0.2

The I Ching Connexion is an ever-changing but always consistently interlocking
graphic representation of the way the 64 hexagrams interrelate.
As such it is the key to widen and deepen the interpretation of the
outcome of
a divination.

It features the translation James Legge made (published in 1882, England) of
the Imperial Edition of the I (published in 1715, China). This alone
makes the
program useful for anyone interested in the I Ching.
Besides that it adds two radical new views to the ancient Book of Changes:
the Connexion and the Mediator.
It also features an I Ching clock, a presentation of the link between the
I Ching and astrology. And it allows you to calculate your natal hexagram.

I Ching Connexion X v3.0.2 is carbonized: it requires a PowerPC Macintosh, at
least Mac OS 8.6 with CarbonLib v1.4 installed, or Mac OS X 10.1 - it runs
natively in both the Classic and the OS X environment.
The program takes about 2.1 MB on your hard disk and needs 2.2 MB free RAM
to run.
It does not run on 680x0 Macs.

This software is distributed as shareware (save/print disabled).
Please read 'I Ching Connexion X Read Me' for a bit more introductory info,
and 'How to Register ICC' for instructions on how to register.

Changes since v3.0.1:
- Corrected Natal dialog and calculations.
(since v3.0:)
- Fixed crash when used on pre- OS 9.1 systems.
(since v2.3.3:)
- Build for Carbon now!
- Made standard zoom state just big enough to hold the graphic.
- Remember/restore position and size for all windows between runs.
- Added standard window menu.
- Balloon help is gone (it's not available in Carbon).
- Added 'Hexagram Tips' as a replacement for balloon help;
activated by menu choice or while option key is held down.
- Added scroll wheel support (in OS X).
- Corrected minor error in Hexagram 1, 2 and 3 miscellaneous signs
numbers; they don't show up in the section menu anymore.

Enjoy the program,

default MacOS desktop background instead of the photo of the French Alps
(from the MacOS 8.x install CD) which I'd been using as the desktop
image for the last couple of years.

I've tried, in the following order, with no effect:

- zap PRAM
- rebuild desktop
- replace the Appearance Control Panel
- trash the Desktop Pictures Prefs and Custom Desktop Patterns files
from the Preferences folder

I verified that the French Alps photo works fine by copying it over to
another machine via AppleTalk and setting that iMac's desktop to be the
photo. (On the PB Finder shows its "kind" to be "Appearance document"
and PictureViewer can open it correctly.) None of the other Appearance
documents under the Appearance folder in the System folder work. The
Appearance control panel's Desktop tab shows a uniform fuschia
(magenta?) color for the preview of the desktop when any of these is
selected as the picture.

What now?

Thanks,

Subject: uncompress .cab files on a Mac?

A utility I'm testing at a client site, SANDRA, generated a number of
plain text report files but compressed them in Microsoft's CAB
format. Is there any way to uncompress this format on a Mac? Or do I
have to uncompress them all on a Windows machine?

Subject: utility to size images?

Is there a utility (preferably a droplet) which will tell you the pixel
dimensions of an image? I don't want a full-blown image viewing program,
just a quick way to tell the width and height of an image (JPEG, GIF,
PICT, BMP, etc).

Versiontracker lists a CMM called "bounds", but it's no longer available
on the site listed as its location of origin. The links returned by
Google also point to the same no-longer-there URL. The info-mac archives
don't appear to have this CMM.

Thanks,
