Lots of progress has been made. I am now ready to unveil the "overall" main screen for Envelope Printer 3.0
Here it is: Read More
I spent about 14 hours going through all of the design ideas that y'all have sent along with things that I wanted to re-work to begin with. I never realize how much work there is to do until I sit down and start wading through my three folders of information. A lot of the work I did was spent just getting all of my design notes together and organizing in a cohesive fashion.
I am leaning towards the following "program" at this time and am anticipating 3 months re-write from the ground up.
1) Rolodex "based"
2) Envelope Printer
3) Fax Cover Page Printer
4) Fax Cover Page designer
4a) Form Letter Designer/Printer (possible add-on)5) FAST - goal is to still be under 30s to load, select/enter information, print envelope
4b) Multi-select and print of Form Letter/Fax Cover pages (part of Form Letter Designer)
6) Print to any size envelope that is recognized by the printer
7) Easier adjustment of print alignment
8) all of the current features (as needed/applicable to new environment)
No this will not be Microsoft Word quality word processor/letter writer. The purpose is to be quick and easy. Also, task specific. Therefore, I am really aiming to make this more of a correspondence manager. Any letter, envelope or fax cover page will be stored in pdf with time and date stamp for tracking purposes.
Anyway, just wanted to post another quick update.
This past year, I became a licensed private investigator. Predominately to do Computer Forensics on behalf of a PI I had been providing computer support to. However, I have also been doing "standard" PI work during this time also, you know, Child Custody surveillance jobs, Suicide/Murder investigations, cold case murder investigations, and so on.
Hopefully, this will also fix a problem with Windows 7 and Windows 8 and the UAC setting interferring with correct placement of the CDM licensing file for the PRO version.
