Documenting

Posted in General at Tuesday, 08 March 2005 06:51 Pacific Standard Time

One of the main things I am doing as I transition out of my current job to my new one is to document a lot of the work I have done or am working on. One of the tools that makes this task much easier for me is Brian Scott's  Cropper. I love this little tool and it makes life much easier. No more print screen, open [insert image editor here], crop image, copy, paste. Now you just position cropper where you want it, set it to clipboard, hit enter, and paste directly into word.

Everything was going great with this until I accidentally resized Cropper's height to 1 px. Oopps. Once I did this Cropper was too small to get the resize arrows to show up. So what's a guy to do? Well since Cropper is a .Net based utility I simply fired up Lutz Roeder's Reflector. In Reflector I poked around the code for the form and looked into what it did when it shut down. Sure enough it wrote its settings to a config file in the Cropper folder in the Application Data folder. So I simply opened up the config file and resized it manually. Now I'm back to documenting. :)

So go check out Cropper, it is a very cool tool. And while your at it look at Reflector if you don't already use it.

Yeah that's quite geeky.

Thanks for the comment Bryant. Just want to say that you can resize the window by holding down alt and pressing the arrow keys. Also, since you posted this, I realized that when I changed some of the interface elements in the 1.6 beta, I accidently removed the Reset function. It reset the size of the form to the default just for this scenerio. I'll have to add it back in.
