Hi Gianluca,
Unfortunately even Black standard theme gives same result (other standards themes - didn't try all - works)

the fact is it only affects Nirsoft suite tab and NOT Symenu Suite tab

it should have something to do with font color (white on white background) for that tab only??

but trust me this issue is less than blocking problem (I just mentionned because it can hide more critical ones)

and I'll do with that really
It's probably more usefull to merge the Nirsoft page into the main one so...

Wow... luckly!
With a different color schema you'll be probably able to reactivate the beta feature.

Ok then, I thought it was tied to the problem we discussed here https://www.ugmfree.it/forum/messages.aspx?TopicID=494 but it's not your case.
Can you deactivate the new beta feature please? I'm speaking about "Themed forms". I suspect that it could be a simple problem in this colors combination.

I was a bit surprised with the figures:
On the Nirsoft Windows, Symenu actually uses :
- around 4300 GDI Objects!

and

- roughly 200 000KO Private bytes

- 100 000KO (Max ~140 000) bytes as Working set



In fact as soon as the app manager is opened (even on Symenu suite window) there is at least 4300 GDI Objects

Hope this help
let me know if you need other infos (Process Explorer is your friend smileDrink

It's really strange and it seems caused by a program general problem not a specific one of the SPS manager.

You should go to the task manager, go to the Details, add the column GDI object and tell me how many object SyMenu is using when you have this problem.

Thks in advance for your time (I Understand that this view has little chance to survive for long and is not blocking, anyway this may hide ........)

Dear all,
The first 2020 version is finally out.

This time the news are more technical than handy.
I would like to comment two of them.


1) All the libraries are removed from the program root and grouped under the lib folder
Well it's true the SyMenu root folder was a mess... there was a lot of "useless" files and now I moved them in a subfolder (Lib). I hope the cleaning can be appreciated.

2) The custom themes can now be extended to draw the forms too (beta)
If you prefer to have a colorful application you can now extend the theme for contextual menu to all the forms. Well probably not every colors combination will work but the feature should be quite good as it this now.

A user reported to me that the automatic alert for the new program update doesn't work. If you force the SyMenu update everything works well but he had no clue that a new version is available. Is there anyone else that can confirm this problem?

If you have any question I'm here.

Indeed it'll be a command line parameter solution not a config one. But it'll solve the Log path customization issue the same.

It's incredible that OneDrive is not able to manage a simple sync exception.


When you unsync a folder, Dropbox too removes it, but if you create the folder again, DB understands that you want to have it and leaves it on your FS without synchronizing it.
IMHO it's not perfect (why the hell it needs to remove it locally when you unsync it???) but if you follow its rules, it works.

As you can see here https://www.ugmfree.it/SyMenuManual.aspx#CommandLine SyMenu already grants a lot of path customizations.

It's not a problem to add the path for the log this way, but you should use a customized shortcut with a new command line parameter to execute SyMenu. I don't know if you'd be willing to do that.

Anyway, I'm a power user of Dropbox and I have a similar problem with several folders (not a SyMenu thing anyway).
The solution in Dropbox and in any other synchronization tool is to use the selective sync.
Here's the OneDrive solution for this: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/choose-which-onedrive-folders-to-sync-to-your-computer-98b8b011-8b94-419b-aa95-a14ff2415e85



For whatever reason, I don't seem to get notifications when you reply, so this is way late.
My experience with OneDrive selective sync has not been fruitful - if you uncheck the dir (supposedly won't sync dir and files contained) you end up in an endless loop whereby you have to remove the dir/files from onedrive, but when you do that you can't deselect for sync. Symenu then creates the dir and file on next use and onedrive then syncs...on and on and on...I see from the next message that you plan to release with the config option to direct - this is good news! Thank you.
I am not experiencing any negative affects from the workaround with readonly.
thank you

It's one solution but you have others.

For example you can set the entire Log folder to read only. This way you prevent a future creation of other files (unplanned).

You can tell OneDrive not to sync the Log folder.

Plus with the next version, that is just a few days away, you'll have a new command line parameter to redirect the Log folder in another location of your choice.

Anyway I think the most correct way to operate is removing the Log folder from sync.

Topic: Finding am app
By default the search bar is located in the contextual menu. If you don't find it, you probably had removed it before. Go to the options - structure and restore it.

What you see in the contextual menu are not categories, but your personal items organization. When you install a program SyMenu can help you creating a folder named accordingly with the program category but it's only an option and you can deactivate it. I don't know what your configuration is, probably you installed some of your items with the assisted mode and other without it.

Anyway you can always change your current items organization, it's completely open.

Topic: Finding am app
I wanted to run Crystal DiskMark so I started looking through the categories in the menu in SyMenu and could not find Crystal DiskMark nor could I find Crystal DiskInfo. I checked that the apps were indeed installed and they were. I looked again this time they showed up in SysMenuSuite flyout. I am a bit confused it seems SyMenu has some apps show up under SyMenuSuite flyout menu while other apps are under categories outside of the SyMenuSuite flyout. It seems that finding a particular app becomes more difficult this way. The help file indicates there is a search capability but the Systray icon menus show no search options.

I came here for this issue and found this thread smile
In my case: the onedrive location where the symenu resides is a shareable location "drive" that all laptops share of multiple persons.

I noticed that the onedrive sync tool indeed reported this on all machines.
I notice in this folder both logactivities and logactivities followed by the specific name of them machine, assuming these are onedrive remnants or maybe it creates them a new for each user?

So if I understand correctly the log sql file will need be put read-only on every machine where it is installed?

Sure you can.

You can change the taskbar icon through the Options form (https://www.ugmfree.it/SyMenuManual.aspx#Advanced_menu_Options_Theme)

Pay attention to this customization... to change the SyMenu taskbar icon you have to change three icons: the normal one, the one with the red light, and the one with the green.

Then you can change the floating icon too if you are using it.
Go here https://www.ugmfree.it/SyMenuManual.aspx#Customization and read the last paragraph.

Please report if the solution suits your needs.
