Simple in what it does but does it just fine 4 stars by oteotd Nov 09, 2011 (Read all my 50 reviews)
This is a nice portable program. It is simple in what it does but does it just fine. I downloaded this puppy so I could see if it was possible to extract the text from error and other notification dialog boxes that windows pops up sometimes. This tool did just that. Now if I am working on a computer and have an issue I need to google or research some other way I can run this tool and then copy the results to the clipboard, then to notepad or what ever. No more trying retype the information from the dialog box. I rated the interface very good so I could give this a 4 star rating. I would have given it a 5 except for one little issue. When I first tried to use it, it took me longer than expected (not long though). Where the issue came in was the way they have the instructions written (no help file)in the program window. For some reason I did not relate to the less than characters as an arrow pointing to the icon to the left. The way the words are written I was under the impression you clicked in the dialog box and drug the pointer to the window you needed to copy. After a couple tries I figured out the less than characters are actually pointing to the logo button to the left. Left click that and hold. Drag to where you want. You can see the text in the box change as you pass areas. If they would rewrite that bit of guidance I would give this 5 stars. The reason I want that re-written is for people that would just download and give up when it don't work on first try. show Review details
Another wonderfully useful tool! 5 stars by busybusy Nov 05, 2011 (Read all my 212 reviews)
It is amazing what an 18K program can do. This tools does come in quite handy for errors message and other windows you need to copy the text from where your basic Ctrl-C just does work. It is simple and easy to use. Thanks again! show Review details
