Huge update for Tectra Writer

Huge update for Tectra Writer

7/15/2019

 
On paper, version 1.7 of the Tectra Writer may seem like yet another incremental upgrade. However, this is not the case. Version 1.7 introduces many exciting new features that enhance the user experience.

What's new

Numbered lines: Tectra Writer now has numbered lines! This feature is optional but can be beneficial if one is programming.
The Tectra Writer file: This is a proprietary file type that saves the text you have written and the selected font. It is somewhere in between plain text and rich text files if you find that helpful.
Text-to-image: You can now convert the text you have written into an image. Pretty handy!
Save improvements: This update improves the save feature in many ways.
Theme improvements: Tectra Writer's 3 built-in themes look a lot nicer now! Writer also remembers the theme you last selected. You won't have to set it every time you start the program anymore.
Toggle word count visibility: You can easily adjust the visibility of the word count now.
Icon updates: Several of the icons have been updated. They look really nice!
Bug fixes: This update fixes quite a few pesky bugs. Hooray!

Wow! That's a big update! I hope you enjoy the new features that have been introduced. If you want to download version 1.7 of the Tectra Writer, click here. Thanks for reading and have a great day!

Late 2014 Mac mini in 2021 - How does it hold up?

Nearly two months ago, I finally got my first Mac: a late 2014 Mac mini. While I usually don't review stuff on this blog, I thought I would make an exception for this device. My hope is that this review will be helpful and fairly unbiased while helping you make a decision on whether or not to get one of these Macs. So, how does this miniature Macintosh hold up today? Design The Mac mini's design has remained largely unchanged over the last decade. There have been a few small updates and tweaks to it, but nothing particularly major. This means that the 2014 Mac mini features the usual premium and minimal aluminum casing with a white status LED on the front. Overall, I'd say this Mac mini's design has held up pretty well! It's very small, being only 8 inches wide and long, while only having a height of 1.4 inches. It weighs a little over 2.5 pounds, so it's not too heavy, either. These dimensions make for a very nice and compact computer, and I think it fits in wi

I made a custom iPod. Should you?

I made a custom iPod. Should you? The goal of this post is to share my experience modding this retro audio player and help you decide if you should attempt this project, too. While this isn't the sort of thing I usually write about on this blog, my hope is that this post will be helpful to those interested in building a custom iPod. So, without further ado, let's begin! The Backstory With the rise of DankPods , modding iPods has quickly become quite popular among retro tech enthusiasts. As someone who had been using iPods for several years prior to their resurgence in popularity, I was intrigued by the idea of making my own custom iPod. This was especially true since I had a broken iPod Video that I could easily mod. Then, something completely unexpected happened: the pandemic. I quickly realized that this would be a great project to work on during the lockdown. As a result, within days of everything shutting down, I had ordered all my replacement parts and prepared

3 years, 2 iOS apps, and a new site

In March of 2018, I wrote my first Tectra program. It was a basic web browser called Satin Web, and it was the first thing I made with C# and Windows Forms. It is now March 2021, three years later, and I am very excited to announce that the next chapter for Tectra is here. After hours of work, I have finally completed my first two iOS apps and have created a new site from scratch to go along with them. There is a lot to cover, so let's begin! iOS Apps TaskNudge TaskNudge is the first of my two iOS apps. It's pretty simple but very handy! Essentially, it lets you write a single, short-term task and get notified to complete it every 1-60 minutes, depending on what you choose. If you are easily distracted when you use your devices, have trouble remembering to do things, or need a bit of a nudge to get something done, TaskNudge might just be the app for you! Best of all, TaskNudge is very simple and easy to use, while being more useful than something like a timer or alarm. Once you
