HTMLfixIT Archive for December, 2009

I have been a HUGE fan of notetab text editor for many years now. Buying it was the single best purchase I have ever made in computer software — I use it hourly in so many ways I cannot even try to explain them, but they include:

  • manipulate data – I use it to sort, move, make delimited files, examine, replace and repair text
  • code html, javascript, perl, php — one of it’s greatest shortcomings is that it doesn’t have custom or language syntax highlighting except for html, but get over that shortcoming (there is a way to see syntax highlighting if it is really important), but it isn’t really if you know the language involved
  • read simple stuff simply — formatting of documents makes them big files
  • control other programs, for example I have it auto-fill form fields in certain web pages using data out of an excel spread sheet

One of the most difficult tasks is getting a new user going. Writing clips is hardly intuitive. I have decided to try some video tutorials to show the most basic of functionality. As I get going, I might try to write a clip to do more tasks. In fact, have something repetitive that you need done on your computer with data? Write a comment and let’s see if we can fix it with a clip.

Here are the first few tutorials:

How to create your very first clip – hello world

I wanted to use JingProject (http://techsmith.com) to create a small tutorial for one of my favorite programs. I could not get my microphone to work. Help under start>control panel>speech suggested that I do this:
“Open Speech in Control Panel, and then click the Speech Recognition tab.” Only problem is I didn’t have such a tab!

I found a post on-line where numerous Dell owners were complaining that Dell laptops don’t support external microphones. I was getting worried, when I came across a post that solve the issue. It said:
1) unplug your external mic
2) open volume control
3) switch it to recording control (menu options/properties/recording)
I then ticked microphone, plugged my microphone and tried Jinging it — woo hoo, it worked and my tutorials now have sound.

Google is always my friend! If you are having trouble getting an external microphone working with a Dell laptop, try the above procedure.
