text document in new context menu

Jussi: I recently got a new machine, Windows 8, and a new version (ze32v397o) of Zeus, so I hope I have this straight. When I install or uninstall Zeus, the following change is made in the registry. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\.txt default value is cleared. This removes "Text document" from ...

:D

Changing Plain Text Alt seems to have corrected the alternating background colors problem I was having.

I had been wondering what that was for.

Thanks again!

background color in version 3.97n

Zeus displays alternating background colors from line to line. This includes whitespace (at least under some conditions). There seems to be a number of conditions. For example, right now I am looking at whitespace - all the SAME shade of blue all numbers - white on the same shade of blue as the whit...

sorting

jussi: i have a large file with about 12500 rows that i frequently sort. this used to work wondrously well. recently sorting has been taking much, much longer. may 50 to 100 times as long. :cry: the task manager indicates that zeus is only running 25% of the time and the system idle process 75% of t...

Jussi: As you may recall I am installing 3.97 under Vista. I seem to have zconfig under control, but now comes zscript. If I click on Macros/Load..., I get the "Load Macro" dialog box. If I then drop the list, I see: C:\Users\Omer Kircher\AppData\Roaming\Xidicone\Zeus\zScript C:\ProgramData\Xidicone...

Jussi: Thanks one more time! I did what you said and everything seems to be working ok now. I would not have figured this out in my lifetime. The ding on the second instance of a search is gone. Also the error message about 2240 NLS is gone. Is all of this business about "Vista awareness" explained ...

Jussi: I don't know how your quote box technique works so I am going to intersperse responses in caps, if you don't mind. When you start the Zeus.exe file it always looks for a zConfig sub-folder in the same location as the Zeus.exe file. THAT IS WHAT I THOUGHT. The only way you can change this beha...

Jussi:

I later thought to try this:

On 3.96,
1) change the name of the config directory
2) execute 3.96

The result is that i get more or less the same display that I do on 3.97.

I think this confirms my suggestion that 3.97 is ignoring the content of the zconfig directory.

Jussi: I got file ze397.zip (instead of ze32v397.zip) and did what you said. I get version 3.97 but I still do not have the configuration that I have in 3.96! I also tried copying zconfig from 3.96 to 3.97. No effect! The only thing I can think of is that, for whatever reason, on my system, 3.97 ign...

Jussi: Thanks for your reply. Keep in mind that most of us don't install a new version every week and consequently are not so familiar with the process. "This is the announcement link that you should be checking periodically: " That is good to know. But I will probably forget about it by the next ti...
