Re: Problem with code snippet

Best publish it with a warning then... However, the snippet doesn't report an error in any circumstances, so I'm not convinced it's useful.

Re: Research Planner Version 2 -- request for beta testing

Can you try downloading and running again Mike -- I've corrected the plugin file name.

Re: Problem with code snippet

To be honest, the sleep statement is somewhat redundant... as far as I can tell, isn't invoked until after the extract completes -- unless you can see otherwise.

Re: Is there a recommendable layperson's guide to copyright, privacy, etc?

You need to be considering: Copyright -- obviously you own the copyright in any original material you've produced, and facts can't be copyrighted, but have you included an material written by others in your research (even a transcription of a source?) Do you have a photo of your parents' wedding day...

Re: FH Version 7

As Windows 7 goes end of life in January https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/hel ... ry-14-2020 and so will no longer receive security updates, you probably ought to be thinking about migrating to Windows 10 whether or not FH7 runs under Windows7.

Re: Research Planner Version 2 -- request for beta testing

A new version is included an the original post to address problems associated with Help management. Colin, in particular, can you test that this still works in your environment. Thanks.

Problem with code snippet

This code snippet (taken from plugins:code_snippets:zip_file_create|> Zip File Create & Extract (code snippet) ) causes a plugin to hang: function extractZip(zipFile,folder) -- Create com object to work with Files and Folders local shell = luacom.CreateObject("Shell.Application") local source = shel...

Re: Research Planner Version 2 -- request for beta testing

Re Help files, the only way to reuse the Help window AND move it to a new location is to use a third-party tool, which works perfectly, but isn't something I can impose on anyone else My options to provide structured help (with search and keywords) that is available off-line seem to be: Abandon prov...

Re: Research Planner Version 2 -- request for beta testing

I can test if the Help file is open by seeing if it can be renamed, but I need to work out how to either move to a new location within the file or close and reopen it. Watch this space -- I have asked on Stackoverflow and hope not to get shot down in flames.

Thanks, Colin -- the next release will include that fix.

Mike, I suspect I'm a special case, but maybe the advice should be for plugin writers as well as users?

Colin, a request for clarification -- https or http? Will update and republish the plugin accordingly (have tested both in Windows without issues).

Re: Research Planner Version 2 -- request for beta testing

Mike, the download in the Knowledge Base had the same problem last time around. I was thinking about a warning in the wiki section on Crossover instead when downloading from the wiki.

Bingo.

Re: Research Planner Version 2 -- request for beta testing

Colin,

Yes, you had exactly this problem in the previous versions.

Can you edit the plugin line 1505 to change https to http and report back?
