  1. I had 10.3.3 running with the GetIt Bookmarks for more than a year. I installed 10.4 and it broke 10.3.3 bookmarks. So I uninstalled Bookmarks from 10.4 and 10.3.3 and then reinstalled Bookmarks on 10.3.3 using Getit. When starting 10.3.3 I get this message: Any suggestions on how to get 10.3.3 Bookmarks to work. I've given up on 10.4 until EMB fixes some bugs and until FixPack exists from whomever. šŸ˜ž It seems likely that I wasted my money purchasing the 10.4 update earlier this year.
  2. There, I've fixed it for you. šŸ˜‰

    Ctrl Tab Ide Plugin

    Does your Ctrl-Tab do the same thing as Ctrl-b <Enter>?
  4. I don't want to install anything into the IDE or any application. Just the pre-compiled demos. Is there a way to download just the demos? It wasn't clear from the https://www.lmd.de/downloads.

    Fast mesh charting on macOS

    Any suggestions on a fast charting component for FMX (macOS/Windows. Mobile not needed) that can do a chart like the one below? We're charting a live stream of data that's up to 4 or 5 datasets/second. I haven't dug into Steema or TMS offerings yet. Up until now we've used SDL's ChartPack (shown below) in our Windows-only app and are very happy with it. Preferably will have auto-scaling, pan, zoom, color controls, and be able to handle 10 or 20 thousand points.

    Your RAD Studio 10.4 Sydney issues

    Kazantsev: GREAT write-up on the quality site! (I don't mean that sarcastically.)
  7. Me too! It seems like such a trivial thing but my habitual typing is so ingrained to use Parnassus Bookmarks that Iā€™m incredibly unproductive and frustrated without it.
  8. Konopka KSVC and Bookmarks are now available in GetIt for Syndey Edit: Navigator is also now available.

    Modern TColorDialog

    TMS has at least one: https://www.tmssoftware.com/site/advofficegraphics.asp. I've used their FMX version and have been happy with it.

    Your RAD Studio 10.4 Sydney issues

    For years I used the ISO because I seemed to have problems with the web install. I know this release is supposed to unify the two installers and eliminate problems. However, I still used the ISO. And then I couldn't get GetIt to work to download CodeSite, etc. I asked about this at the GoToMeeting just now. I needed to RTFM. šŸ™‚ Be sure to read the release notes (http://docwiki.embarcadero.com/RADStudio/Sydney/en/Release_Notes) which state:

    Profiler for Delphi

    It sounds to me that your main complaint is an economic one? ā€” the vendor hasn't updated the software during the year following your initial purchase (during which time it would be free.) I've had that happen and I know it can be disappointing. TBH, being a small one-man business myself, I've done that on a few occasions to my customers too. šŸ˜Æ The good news as far as I'm concerned is that there are no bug fixes or improvements I'm anxiously waiting for in NQS. I suppose the UI could use a facelift and some rough edges in the workflow polished. But, in general, NQS does what I need it too: I was able to quickly narrow down the bottlenecks in my application and test my fixes. Tom

    Profiler for Delphi

    Yes, it's the old TurboPower profiler. The UI didn't bother me. No doubt it could be improved, but I found it easy to understand and get my work done.

    Profiler for Delphi

    I used AQTime for many years, but it seemed to me that SmartBear wasn't really interested in the Delphi market and their product suffered ... and was expensive. I more recently purchased Nexus Quality Suite and was very happy with it. Great tool, great support, great modern product: https://www.nexusdb.com/support/index.php?q=node/27156. As someone previously said, "You get what you pay for." NQS was well worth what we paid for it.
  15. Bill, not to start a flame war, but I love the trailing comment on procedures: procedure SomeOp; begin end; { SomeOp } Why? Because when I'm scrolling up from the bottom of a unit, when a procedure's end; statement comes into view, I can immediately identify the procedure without having to scroll up further. As you say, the IDE does not strip empty procedures that have a comment like this. But, IMO, that's a small price to pay. What does bug me is that when I use Shift_Ctrl-C, the IDE puts new methods between the end; and the comment. But even with that hassle, I still prefer the comment.
