ThumbsPlus v10 Questions / Re: resize to a larger size than the original
« Last post by runner on 2019-07-12 12:29:31 »
Hi,

maybe there is an other hint for your need:

1) Transform your file into a PDF File
2) Open it in acrobat reader
3) Choose the print mode
4) Choose your needed filesize
5) Select the butten "poster" (=the german version, I don't now the english Acrobat translation)

I worked with that successfully if I had to print out lager drawings.

Hope it helps.

Best regards Rainer

ThumbsPlus v10 Questions / Re: Mouse wheel behavior setting
« Last post by Daan van Rooijen on 2019-07-04 18:09:52 »
My pleasure, I hope you figure out what the problem is! It might be a setting in the mouse driver, or even the mouse driver itself that causes the misbehavior. When you have a large driver that offers pages of options, see if you can't replace it with a simple generic one from MS (even if the mouse is from a different brand). I've found that those often work better with fewer hiccups.

I think I must be missing something obvious.

True  ;D

Just Right-click on the saved query in Found Files and use Properties to change its conditions and re-run it.

I'd like to be able to specify my "Restrict search to:" selection to a manually entered location.

I think you'd have to change the 'Current Folder' value for a similar effect.

The inbuilt help is a little unclear as to what words like 'label' mean and the effects they have.

A volume label is a name that you have assigned to a drive. In the DOS days we would use the VOLUME command for that, under Windows it can be set through the drive properties.
 
Quote
In your first response, you say "Make sure that the drive volume labels are exactly the same as before,"

Yes, but that applies to regular local drives, not (necessarily) network drives.

Quote
From the Volume Properties popup I currently have
Drive X:\  Volume type : Network drive
Label  "xavi$"  ; Serial 261a7d3d  ;  File sys type  NTFS ; Max filename 255; 
Network \\BUFFALO\xavi$
Volume alias is blank.

Ordinarily, volume labels are shown here as 'Label', but from this, I guess that ThumbsPlus shows the share name there when it's a network drive (I do not use any network drives here, so cannot verify).

Quote
Q1: is 'label' in the volume properties always just the sharename on the NAS drive?

It might well be (or, maybe it depends on your 'Volume Matching Strategy' settings in options | Preferences | Thumbnails)

Quote
Q2: is what you refer to as 'drive volume label' the sharename  or is it what Thumbs calls 'Network'?

Neither; a volume label is a distinct drive property. However, in the case of network drives, ThumbsPlus can use their share names instead to identify drives.

Quote
Q3 : if I move the complete structure with thumbs folders  from \\BUFFALO\xavi$ to \\OTHERDRIVE\xavi$ 
       are there settings of the Preferences
       'Match network volume using share name' and 'ignore network drive labels'
       that will allow me to simply copy over and match Thumbs database to the moved data?

I think that should work, but there's another problem. When you use a network drive, the server name is also used in the drive identification/matching process. So, you'd have to name the new NAS "BUFFALO" too. OR, you could go into your database using an appropriate tool and change the server and share names into whatever they will be in your new network configuration.

But that is assuming that your current NAS would be replaced by a new one from one moment to the next. If you can just add a new NAS instead, so that both old and new are simultaneously connected, you can use ThumbsPlus to do all the copying of images from old to new and it will automatically copy the thumbnails, keywords, annotations, etc, in the database as it copies the files. Afterwards, you could remove the old NAS, delete all its (then orphaned) thumbnails from the database, and use Compact & Repair to recover the used space in the database.

ThumbsPlus v10 Questions / Modify saved "Found File" SQL query?
« Last post by hockeyrink on 2019-07-04 15:45:14 »
I LOVE the SQL query feature in TP10. My question is how can I edit the SQL query saved in the "Found Files" gallery so I can manipulate the string / source directory? I think I must be missing something obvious.

Perhaps this is more of a feature request. I'd like to be able to specify my "Restrict search to:" selection to a manually entered location.

Now that I've looked for 15 minutes, typed in my question to the forum, I'm SURE to figure this out 30 seconds after posting my question... :o
(Yeah. Kludge fix is to just copy the SQL from the old saved "Found Files" to a new one)

As always, thank you Daan! 

Hmmm, it just occurred to me that my PC is running Windows 7 which has ALWAYS reverted to "scroll 3 lines at a time" and every time I reboot, I have to manually change it to "scroll one page at a time". 

Maybe I might install TP+ on my Windows 10 PC (which never changes the scroll amount and leaves it as I set it) and see what the scroll behavior looks like there. 

Thanks again,
Connie

I hope you don't mind my jumping into this thread. 
I am planning what to do when my NAS drive needs replacing.

The inbuilt help is a little unclear as to what words like 'label' mean and the effects they have.

Network \\BUFFALO\xavi$

Many thanks

ThumbsPlus v10 Questions / Re: Mouse wheel behavior setting

It might well be a bug. Mine is set to 'one row at a time' which works as expected, but the 'use Windows' setting causes it to jump more like 2 windows at a time.

As explained, you either split the image into 4 images manually and print each one separately, or you find a program that can print an image over multiple pages (I have no recommendations there).

ThumbsPlus v10 Questions / Mouse wheel behavior setting
« Last post by Connie on 2019-07-01 12:27:55 »
When viewing thumbnails, I use the wheel to scroll through the images.  No matter what setting I choose in Options-Preferences-Thumbnail View, the wheel always scrolls the images one row at a time.  My choice is "use Windows mouse settings" which is always set to "whole screen at a time", but it never does that in TP10.

I searched through the Help and in the Forum, but can't find any mention of this. 

Is this a bug, or just the way it's going to work, no matter which choice I make?

TIA, Connie
