I added a second option to the custom text generator that I wrote that can output 2 lines of circular text on the table or the previous 3 straight lines of cursive text, plus some punctuation too.
Interface is cleaned up too, all you need to run it is to download MS Small Basic v 1.2 and load it from there. (it 's free)
I can only attach 2 items per entry - so look below for the program (.sb file), the data file (abcd.txt) and the instruction txt file
This is fantastic work, so thoughtfully implemented! It really opens up the possibilities of how I can showcase and enjoy Sisyphus table in my home. I'll be using this for every special occasion, welcoming visitors and wishing loved ones a happy birthday. 🙂 It works really well, and I've been enjoying playing around with it. I have in running on my Mac by way of Parallels VM. No problems at all.
It's so good that I'd love to someday see Sisyphus work with you, to incorporate this excellent capability into the Sisyphus app itself. Until then, thanks for creating this excellent tool, and thanks for sharing it with us all!
Well done! This makes it super easy to create custom messages that integrate the table into what’s going on in our lives. Nice work! We’ll be using this a lot!
Your instructions and the program worked like a charm!
Just I was thinking about buying the table, one of my initial thoughts was whether I would be able to create custom text images… Thank You so much for making this possible and sharing it!
Sisyphus should make this feature a part of the app… the text option adds additional functionality and takes the experience to a whole new level.
This is the September 8 update for the text generator - if you download it PLEASE use this one as it fixed a small bug and it adds a new font option (cursive and printed text) to the output as well as the ability to rotate the image in case you have your table in an fixed position
Sorry for being a computer dunce, but when I run the Text generator it says I need to have the abcd.txt file in the same directory . I have the sb file and the two abcd files in the same folder , named Sisyphus, under Documents,but apparently that's not the same as having them in the same directory. How do I put them all in the same directory
Finally realised that I had to remove the series of numbers that showed up in front of the abcd and abcdp text files after I downloaded them - now it works ! (and learned that apparently directories and folders are essentially the same thing)
