  1. Thanks Phil and Igor for your replies, and for the info. Regards Geoff
  2. Does anyone have experience of putting both .exe files and .mp4 files on the same DVD disc, not burnt as DVD but a data disk. My question is if such a disk was placed in a stand alone DVD player would it play the .mp4 files and ignore the .exe's or would the .exe's prevent it reading the disk at all. Geoff
  3. Is it possible to have navigation bar icons showing but turn off the progress bar other than auto hiding? Edit Solved. If switching from the mini player to full screen the progress bar appears on mouse movement. If preview from current position is selected then progress bar doesn't show on mouse movement.
  4. Ok thanks Igor
  5. Hi Igor I understand your thinking, but still maintain the view that a token effort is better than no effort at all. regards Geoff
  6. Thanks for conformation is there any way to move this there or should I repeat the post?
  7. In previous versions of PTE pressing Ctrl + S while in the objects and animations window saved the project. This appears not to be the case in Version 9, Ctrl + S only being available after exiting the Objects and Animations window. Being able to save while working on a complex animation is useful, so could someone please check to see if what I'm finding is not unique to my system. Thanks Geoff
  8. I understand all the arguments put forward, but still think that unless there is a good technical reason for removing that piece of existing code, then it should be kept in version 9. It may be a token effort at protecting images, but that's not a good reason for removing it. If there is a good and valid reason for it's removal, I would be interested to hear that reasoning from Igor. Regards Geoff
  9. Hi Lin In my opinion if the anti-print screen feature prevents even a percentage of image theft, then for code that already existed to be removed is short sighted to say the least. It means that for me, on one particular project, having paid for version 9 I have to revert to using version 8. Because I'm dealing with other peoples images I have to show that the software I'm using does all it can to protect their images. If the reasons you give are correct then I'm most disappointed that Wnsoft have not at least done all they can to protect against image theft. Best regards Geoff
  10. Hi Jill I'm afraid to say its not, create a slideshow in version 9 export to exe run it and do a print screen. The image will be captured. This is a serious oversight as far as I'm concerned and should be reinstated as a matter of urgency
  11. Can anyone tell me where the option to prevent Print Screen can be found is Version 9 please
  12. 4x3 is in my opinion inconsistant with most digital SLR aspect ratio's, and the default AR should be 3 x 2. A significant number of laptops, mine included have 16 x 10 AR screens, and I would be disappointed if that ratio were to be removed from PTE. As chairman of one of the major British Photographic Exhibition's exhibitions, I'd like to add that ours along with many other of the BPE exhibitions have moved to 16 x 9 AR rather than 4 x 3
  13. Will it be possible to run slideshows from a menu page with run and return, a feature I use a lot?
  14. Suggest that the mouse cursor changes to the familiar hand when moving over a menu clickable button. There would seem to be no logical reason why the mouse pointer should behave differently to a hypertext link when the sole funcion of both is to trigger some form of event or action. Many thanks Geoff
  15. Thanks for the suggestions which will solve the present problem. However it seems a bit of an oversite that a button that serves no other purpose than to be clicked to trigger an action should behave differently to hyprerlink text. Geoff
