Findinee works on my OSX 10.9.5 with Java 12.

Still working with Maverick, a solid choice ! ;-)

Hooray, officially platform-independent!

Thanks, guys!

Cheers,

Would it help if ELVis, when started the first time, just opens the folder in which ELVis is? The user would then navigate to the desired folder, and ELVis could remember the last navigated folder path and autosave this path in its ini file?

Yes, clearly that's the way it should be done...

Can't remember why that idea did not come up at the time; probably it fell victim to the KISS* principle.

May be in ELVis version 2, if one is ever demanded loudly enough (ha!).
(As it is, Marketing has pulled a great stunt already, blowing up the semi-problem of one case up to an Internet presence of so far no less than 62 replies in this thread...  ;D )

Quote from: JeevesWe endeavour to give satisfaction.

Having applied Evolutionary (as opposed to Artificial) Intelligence, we can now present ELVis v.2 (a.k.a. "Son of ELVis", (c) Brian) for your downloading pleasure.

The actual "functionality" (making pretty pictures) is exactly the same as before, but there is no more ELVis.ini file to manage.
(There is now a file elvis.cfg, but that needs not, and ought not to, ever be touched by the user.)

Thus, if you're already happy with the INI file of v.1, no need to update.

Otherwise: Details in the updated documentation and the (identical) ReadMe file included in the ZIP archive.

Have fun v.2!
(As the change is about folders/directories, and thus OS-related,  I am sure enticing new bugs will be discovered.)

Cheers,
Marv2in

137 * 137 = 18769
18769 = pi * r * r
d = sqrt( 18769 / pi ) * 2

Go to Photoshop and enter the diameter 154.59 for a fixed circle mask and fill it orange :-)

That gave me a circle with area 18769.50 units^2...
Too big.  >:(

ELVis now officially got out of hand
Three and half a score of replies and counting...
(...and I am looking forward to the spectacle of our esteemed Moderator kicking himself, among us all, into the Pit.)  ;D
