I'm an avid TyperTask user

I'm an avid TyperTask user and was looking for something that would support Unicode, so this is looking pretty nice. I'll do some testing and report back.

ETA: Does Beeftext support mouse input or things like grabbing date and time to replace text? Example: in TyperTask, I have a trigger/combo ",d" which then inputs the date in YYYY-MM-DD format. Can Beeftext currently support that?

Thanks for your feedback.

Thanks for your feedback. Beeftext indeed supports Unicode. In the future, I also plan to include support for rich text combos.

  • Beeftext has no support for any mouse related function.
  • Insertion of date/time is supported via 'variables'. To get the date in the format you want, you can use the following code in your snippet: #{dateTime:yyyy-MM-dd}.

Variables

Ah, I had missed that on the github page. Variables makes sense.

So far, it works for me on portable, but I'm going to pop over to github and make some feature requests. Like the tool so far.

Can I update Portable apps version of Beeftext 1.7 with your portable edition (1.8) in zip I just found on your site?

Discontinuation of the PortableApps version.

Hi.

I'm discontinuing the version tailored for the portableApps platform because I do not have time to maintain it anymore. The portable edition, (which is a generic installer-less version that run from and store all is data in a single folder) will still be maintained, because there is a big demand for it.

The layout of the portable edition is a bit different from the PortableApps one. To transfer you settings to the portable edition, copy the folder BeeftextPortable\Data\settings to the root of the BeeftextPortableEdition folder, and rename it from settings to Data.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Official?

Would you like to PAF to go official? This will likely increase downloads a ton and generate more interest in your app from our millions of users. I don't know why I missed that this was an official publisher package before, sorry!

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Hi John.

Hi John.
Thank you, but unfortunately, I have less time to develop Beeftext, and I cannot afford to maintain the Portable Apps version to a good enough standard of quality.

Unmodified Build?

If it's an unmodified build of your base app with the PA.c Launcher handling stuff, we could probably handle updating the package. And if you accept donations, it could be a reason to devote more time to it as our community has a habit of supporting devs.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Hi there, I noticed that this

Hi there, I noticed that this app was supported and maintained here in the past but now it is not because the responsible for it had to move on.

Is there a way to learn how to package this app to the portableApps format? I would be willing to at least give it a try!

Let me know!
Victor

BeefText download

Hi, I would also like to know how to package this on my own and would also request that the download link be removed or moved as the current one no longer works.

Update

Hi. I've removed the dead link, thanks for notifying.

As for creating a portableapps.com package. I have a fully self-contained Portable Edition available on the official site.

It should be the starting port for the portableapps.com version, for which the documentation is here.
