ReplaceMagic.LNK made it also

We are proud to say that last of ReplaceMagic supported applications (support for Windows Shortcuts) was finally converted to new application (same like ReplaceMagic for Office and PDF).

Now you can use all advantages of modern design, multi-threading/multiple document processing to make changes in your Windows shortcuts.

ReplaceMagic can help with automatic changes for following Windows Shortcut (LNK) areas: working directory, target path, hot key, icon location, comment and arguments.

Download now ReplaceMagic.LNK and make changes in your Windows shortcuts.

New version 4.0.1 published

We just published new ReplaceMagic version (4.0.1) - only change is that installation and application are now signed with SHA-256 which does not have any impact on current functionality.

Reason for this is because old signature model (SHA1) is not anymore supported by Windows.

Old ReplaceMagic vs. new version

As you can notice we did not publish new version of ReplaceMagic for long period of time.

Reason is simple - all our development efforts are on new ReplaceMagic version. Old version will get only bug fixing in case of issues.
Progress on new ReplaceMagic is going good - complete application will be redesigned. ReplaceMagic will not be Microsoft Office dependent. It will be multi-thread enables and totally new is that we will have ReplaceMagic.PDF and ReplaceMagic.OneNote version.

Like names suggest we will support changes in PDF and OneNote documents.

First Beta is already shared with some customers and initial feedback is good :).

All current customers will be notified about new ReplaceMagic when we release it.

Of course, stay tuned to new blog posts as we will talk and share some screenshots from new ReplaceMagic.

Btw. did you watch ReplaceMagic video:

Spend 30 seconds to understand what ReplaceMagic is :)

Welcome to BlogEngine.NET

If you see this post it means that BlogEngine.NET is running and the hard part of creating your own blog is done. There is only a few things left to do.

Write Permissions

To be able to log in, write posts and customize blog, you need to enable write permissions on the App_Data and Custom folders. If your blog is hosted at a hosting provider, you can either log into your account’s admin page or call the support.

If you wish to use a database to store your blog data, we still encourage you to enable this write access for an images you may wish to store for your blog posts.  If you are interested in using Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, SQL CE, or other databases, please see the BlogEngine docs to get started.

Security

When you`ve got write permissions set, you need to change the username and password. Find the sign-in link located either at the bottom or top of the page depending on your current theme and click it. Now enter "admin" in both the username and password fields and click the button. You will now see an admin menu appear. It has a link to the "Users" admin page. From there you can change password, create new users and set roles and permissions. Passwords are hashed by default so you better configure email in settings for password recovery to work or learn how to do it manually.

Configuration and Profile

Now that you have your blog secured, take a look through the settings and give your new blog a title.  BlogEngine.NET is set up to take full advantage of many semantic formats and technologies such as FOAF, SIOC and APML. It means that the content stored in your BlogEngine.NET installation will be fully portable and auto-discoverable.  Be sure to fill in your author profile to take better advantage of this.

Themes and Plugins

One last thing to consider is customizing the look and behavior of your blog. We have themes and plugins available right out of the box. You can install more right from admin panel under Custom.

On the web

You can find news about BlogEngine.NET on the official website. For tutorials, documentation, tips and tricks visit our docs site. The ongoing development of BlogEngine.NET can be followed at Github. You can also subscribe to our Youtube channel.

Good luck and happy writing.

Development of new version of ReplaceMagic

After spending some time working and optimizing new ReplaceMagic presentation it is time to go back to normal duties and extension of new ReplaceMagic version.

We still do not have deadline as almost everyday we have new ideas what to add and how to change ReplaceMagic. Of course, this does not make our life easier so we will need to draw the line and split development in different phases.

Our first phase would be to:

- Make ReplaceMagic work with multiple threads meaning that documents will be processed in parallel mode which will increase performances. This is already achieved for scanning of documents and during internal tests we managed to process more than 13.000 documents in less than 5 minutes. To be more precise:

Start: 01.05.2015 13:58:14
End: 01.05.2015 14:02:50
Total time: 276 seconds.
Total files: 13451
Processed documents: 13451

Hyperlinks count: 43095
OLE links count: 132
Link Sources count: 119
PivotTables count: 4
Found Excel document: 4683 with size of 233136 kilobytes
Found Word document: 1376 with size of 313416 bytes
Found PowerPoint document: 52 with size of 9295 bytes
Found Visio document: 19 with size of 5580 bytes
Found Project document: 61 with size of 10303 bytes
Found PDF document: 7121 with size of 807932 bytes
Found Email document: 0 with size of 0 bytes
Found OneNote document: 0 with size of 0 bytes

- Enable that ReplaceMagic does not need Office applications to make changes of documents. Currently it is required to have Microsoft Office installed on computer where you run ReplaceMagic.

- Support all Office application that we support with old version of ReplaceMagic -> Microsft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Project and Visio

- Include as much functionality from old version

PHASE 2:

- Add if something is left our from old ReplaceMagic version

- Add PDF, OneNote and Email/Outlook support.
Above you can see that we already started to work with PDF files but this will be finished in phase 2

PHASE 3:

- Auto repair links after documents migration, server changes, file storage changes or SharePoint migrations. This will take some time but ultimate goal is that ReplaceMagic makes links (hyperlinks, OLE links, Link Sources,...) as much automatically as possible.

Stay tuned...

 

Btw. speed of processing depends on factors like: computer power, complexity of documents, file storage speed,... Numbers are related to our test environment and documents set!

New site published

After long period we found time to create new web presentation. We followed all modern standards so our web site will render in great way on any device (desktop computer, mobile and tablet devices).

PDF converter to other document types?

As we are investigating PDF document manipulation it came a cross our mind that we might create desktop and online PDF converter.

Goal is to have tool that will scan your PDF documents and convert them into some other (editable) files formats like Word, Excel, rich text, HTML,...).

Yes, there are other similar tools but ReplaceMagic desktop edition will allow you to do mass conversions at once.
Concept will be the same like with ReplaceMagic.Total where you will chose folder(s)/drive(s) where your documents are and then decide into which file format you want to export your PDF.

Of course, we need to keep same formating like in your PDF documents.

Beside desktop edition we will offer also online application with simplistic layout where you can upload your document, we will convert it to chosen file format and send it per email back to you.

Online version will not have mass-conversion options like desktop edition.

What do you think does this make sense?
What else would you like to have (signing documents, approval process, team collaboration and document sharing options...)?

Btw. reason to create something like this is because we also get tons of PDF documents and if we need to make some changes this is difficult task (either some other similar tool or to rewrite text again). By using ReplaceMagic.PDFConverter you will be able to export text, make changes and then convert it back to PDF.
