@GitHubRulesOK (KJD): It wasn’t my intention ever to suggest that your AHK or any other workarounds are useless; far from it! I am very sure those who you provide the workarounds for appreciate your help a lot. It’s just that personally I’d like to see the feature in the app itself instead of an external kludge. Hope you get my point.
Also yes, I admit sometimes I do get slightly frustrated that some feature additions/changes (not just my own ideas BTW) have been pending for a long time, and that frustration (actually it’s more like a feeling of helplessness) might be evident in my posts, but I have always taken care never to act like a spoilt entitled brat who throws tantrums and demands stuff right now. I know kjk has his own roadmap and also a paying day job and am grateful for the immense amount of time and effort he’s put into making this fine app available for free to everyone. I just wish I had the necessary coding skills to help out more, and it puzzles me that this app is so widely used and yet coding or even designing help (icons etc.) is not forthcoming from any expert users. It’s a real shame because if kjk doesn’t have the time, then at least if others can pitch in (like zeniko was doing) this project would be much more alive than it is at present. None of us want Sumatra to get bloated of course, but it’s painfully evident that there’s a pile of bug fix and feature requests that’s growing day by day, and issue upon issue is lying open in GitHub with no official response.
Anyway, I think I’ve grumbled enough for now so I’m off to continue reading some fun ebooks in Sumatra.
