What are people saying about PTFB Pro

Adrian Williams I bought PTFB on one of it previous listings on BDJ. It's one of those programs that fit the bill when you need it but you can also forget the power of it since you may not use it every day. I've not quite managed to program a macro that - at the cursor in file manager it presses F2 (rename), select all text, Ctrl-C (copy), ESC, move to another open window using Alt-Tab then create a new record(Ctrl-E) then - paste (Ctrl-V), Enter, cursor up.
I'm trying to create database entries from a directory listing. Several hundred records. Once the macro works, there's an option to repeat the macro x times. The problem i have is switching between windows. It may be a simple 'unticking a box' in the options but it's got me beat at the moment. Maybe Technology lighthouse can point me in the right direction. I've posted my email address, just in case.

The program is worth the money since it'll probably get the task done do to its flexibility. That's if I can get my macro to run :) Although you may not use it every day, it'll pay you back when you do need it.

Susan Westlake Hi Adrian,

One thing you could try is creating separate macros for each of the windows e.g.

Macro#1 works in file manager to copy the filename text
Macro#2 works in your other app to add the new record.

You could then edit macro#1 and add a Run macro item to trigger macro#2. Also edit macro#2 and withdraw all triggers other than "Macro Run command".

Hope that makes some kind of sense!

bvssunnydale Hi, since I have multiple cpus (like many) a single cpu license like this really isn't very useful - or, maybe, could you sell a "family" license. No one has a single cpu these days (I have work, home, laptop, hobby, etc ones). Thanks much.
Jul 28 2017 at 4:33am Copy Link

Benjamin User I already bought the single license, so if you ever decided to expand my actual license to multiple CPUs, please let me know about it as many prospects will probably not buy your product if you don't sell a family license.

In my case, I can use PTFB on all my computer session, but not multiple computers...

Fredrick Hello,

Noting that I personally perceive the PTFB licensing scheme as a bit overly restrictive and that installation on two computers is the norm, thank you for extending the offer to PTFB Pro value packs.

Related, may I please receive answers to the following questions?

1. Is transfer of a license to another owned computer allowed?

2. If applicable, does PTFB Pro use an on-the fly/automated licensing method, or is transfer handled via a non-automated method (e.g. email)?

3. Can the software be installed/registered any time?

4. Assuming license activation is required, how many installations are allowed per hardware footprint?

Thank you.

>> 1. Is transfer of a license to another owned computer allowed?
Yes of course.

>>2. If applicable, does PTFB Pro use an on-the fly/automated licensing method, or is transfer handled via a non-automated method (e.g. email)?

You uninstall from the old machine, install and register on the new machine. That's all there is to it.

>> 3. Can the software be installed/registered any time?
Yes.

>> 4. Assuming license activation is required, how many installations are allowed per hardware footprint?

We don't use license activation.

Susan Westlake Hi Benjamin - what do you mean by upgrade? Do you want to change it to one of the bigger license packs? If that's the case, just buy the larger pack using the BDJ coupon; as soon as that goes through I'll give you a full refund for your original single license purchase.

Benjamin User Well, thank you for your offer. I think I'll make a good use of the single license. I thought I'd need multiple computer licenses but it doesn't work on iMac, and I just have one PC (at least 3 if I count those I use at school and office).

I suppose you'll offer a future discount on BitsDuJour. If you do, I'll consider buying multiple licenses if I ever need an additional one.

If you realize PTFB Pro 6, will I be able to upgrade using my actual license, or are major upgrades not included in the deal?

BTW, do you offer lifetime discount for student? If you do, I'll be willing to buy one and review your product in English, Japanese and French. I could even translate your program in one of these languages if you ever need translation. At least I could be proofreading these languages (most of the company forget to proofread translation made by an individual in exchange for a free license...)

Guy Good Is Version 6 going to be released fairly soon? It doesn't look like the upgrade would be free if it was released quickly.

Susan Westlake Major upgrades (as in 5.x to 6.x) are either free (if you bought reasonably close to the release date) or heavily discounted. Minor upgrades are always free. Version 6 isn't something we've thought about - there are still quite a few things that we're looking to add to version 5 over the next year or so. If you look at the release history on our site you''ll see that we don't put out major (paid) upgrades all that often (e.g. six years between v5 and v6) but minor upgrades are much more frequent, and often driven by user suggestions.

We don't actually have lifetime student discount, but it's something we'll consider. We have provided discounts to academic orders on request however.

Regarding translation, I think if we added support for another language the first on the list would probably be German; we have quite a few German customers and it must be pain always seeing things in UK English.

Susan Westlake Hi wts,

Yes to the XP VM, and yes to the DOS program, although PTFB Pro may not be able to "see" much of the window in question so target identification could be an issue. There are ways to get round that:

1) Use the "title" command in the cmd window prior to running the dos program to give it a unique name

2) You may be able to use the visual trigger to help with identification too.

Adam Bridge This deal should have been extended - many of us are busy over the weekends and don't always get onto the PC then. I note already 54 people want this deal. Revenue and customers potentially lost in my opinion. In addition it would be great if the Company posted some videos of what the program can do on it's website - textual information on software like this can be hard going to wade through and a video with examples would clarify that so much easier for customers.

Dunking Not often I comment on apps I've acquired via BDJ, but this one deserves a mention. I originally acquired it for the sole purpose of clicking 'OK' in a Skyp popup dialgog that warns about a trouter or something (can't remember because PTFB Pro has meant I don't have to deal with it any more!). As you might have guessed, it worked great and I then discovered other things that needed its attention, and... well, it's now an indispensible tool for my day-to-day PC use.

This is one of those apps you don't realise you need until you use it to fix something you didn't realise needed fixing. I encourage a test drive a while before the offer day since it can take a bit of time to appreciate its benefits.

Andrew Griffiths How much of a drain is this on CPU, memory, etc., please?
Feb 2 2018 at 5:09pm Copy Link
1
Susan Westlake Hi Andrew,
For CPU, that's going to vary hugely with things like:
- how many macros are set to trigger automatically
- how many of them use visual triggers, which are a bit more costly
- high tightly (faster) or loosely (slower) each macro's identification settings are
- how much grunt your cpu has

The bottom line is that PTFB gives you lots of controls to minimize the cpu hit: you can reduce the response speed (number of checks per sec), make your macros do more fast easy checks on candidate windows, and let PTFB Pro identify and disable macros that haven't been used for a long time. As a guide, one of our PCs has a decent Intel I5 and 100 or so macros loaded in PTFB; it typically shows about 0.2% cpu in Task manager.

Memory-wise, the same install consumes about 11mb. This goes up temporarily if you open the help file or open a macro for editing, but it goes back down afterwards.

DH007 Is it portable?
Feb 4 2018 at 6:37am Copy Link

Susan Westlake Hi DH007,

On Windows 7 and later, PTFB Pro really needs to be installed in the official Program Files folder in order to function correctly, as it's marked internally as an "assistance" app (Windows will curtail its ability to act on certain target windows otherwise).

However, there are facilities for putting some/all of your macros on a shared space and having them load automatically from there.
Technology Lighthouse - Feb 4 2018 at 7:56am Copy Link

bvssunnydale Hi, (1) my biggest irritation with Windows is that when I'm working in app "A" another app 'B' will pop up and steal focus. Can PTFB do anything to help with this specific issue? Also, do you think the macro functionality can copy from a cell in Excel and move specifically to my accounting software, paste the contents of the Excel cell and then go back to Excel, tab over to the next value, and repeat the process (until I tell it to stop obviously). Thanks much.
Feb 4 2018 at 9:13am Copy Link

Susan Westlake Hi bvssunnydale,

For the first part, if you get PTFB to close app "B" then focus should automatically revert to the window that previously held focus. I find this to be much less of an issue with later versions of Windows however; 7 and especially 10 are quite good at making the intrusive app wait (though the flashing taskbar is an irritation in itself).

For the second part, it's certainly possible but I'd recommend using a screen-based macro and driving the process through keystrokes rather than mouse actions, as they're not position-dependent. Also, this might be a good case for triggering via hotkey (you would certainly want to turn off the automatic trigger for this!)

Robert Crombie Can it prevent W10 from running Windows Defender ?
In W7 I can install Avast Free, and that tells W7 to never run Defender (Even if I decide to disable Avast until windows restarts)
HOWEVER in W10 that trick does not work.
Even with Avast installed it insists on running Defender whenever it feels like it.
If MS stopped using Programmers for analysis/design, and instead re-hired the Analysts, we would not have to suffer this disregard for our desires.
Ideally we should have the ability to tell Defender when to run, and when not to run.
Can your program compensate for the lack of Analysts at MS ?
Rob
PS My main objection to Defender running when it feels like it, is it slows my machine down drastically
Oct 19 2018 at 4:24am Copy Link
1
Susan Westlake PTFB's ProgMon macros can kill a running process, but in the specific case of Windows Defender I think it might be blocked, since killing AV processes would be an obvious means of attack by malware. I suspect there's a more direct way to disable Defender if that's what you want to do.

John User I have version 5.2.2.0, and if I use its built-in "check for newer version" feature it tells me that this is the latest version. Now I see from this offer that there's a newer version after all, contradicting my installed version. Why is that?

More to the point, is my copy not telling me about the newer version because it's not eligible for this update, perhaps? As far as I know, it should be eligible for minor version upgrades, which to me it sounds like 5.2 -> 5.3 should be classified as.

Thanks

Susan Westlake Sorry about that - we just forgot to update the online version file at the last release - it's done now. The omission didn't affect eligibility for upgrades at all, it just let 5.2.2.0 think it was the latest.

Yeah. I just managed to check back later after all and Fastspring managed to get out of maintenance before the deal ended.

Susan Westlake Hi Rich D,
I'm not sure when the next one will be but when BDJ has a free slot we'll certainly take it.

bvssunnydale Hi, it's very difficult to find reviews for this software (it looks very promising). I'm wondering how it compares to AutoHotkey (I'm looking for something that doesn't require learning a scripting language). Thanks much.

Susan Westlake Hi bvssunnydale,
It's odd there aren't more reviews, after all PTFB has been around in one form or another for about 20 years now! Rather than using a scripting language, PTFB lets you record macros which you can augment by adding in special actions and by joining macros together. So there's no language to learn, but a bit of procedural thinking is required if you want to put together more complex sequences.

Susan Westlake Hi Vanessa - thanks and great suggestion that's gone straight onto PTFB's ToDo list!

Edit: Couple of things you can do currently which might help:

1) Define a hotkey to create a new macro, which will start recording automatically: Options -> Configure, top section of Hotkeys page (you'll need to scroll down through the list a bit)

2) During recording hit the Pause/Break key on your keyboard to stop recording.

Ron White This is one of the best, mostly unknown programs you can have. I've used it for years and would dread having to do without it. The macro features are fine, but it's worth if--particularly when it's free--just for the Push the F'ing Button feature, which was its original function. You know all those irritating windows that pop up asking if you really want to delete something, or want you to click a button to see a sales pitch--which, of course you don't, but you have to click an x-out icon to get fir of the window--PTFB can click the buttons automatically on windows you don't want to bother you. Get it. You'll love it.
