In the example above the picture of Drake was dropped into the 1Plumb.htm window. Notice the picture of Drake is covered with a transparent grey film after it has been copied.


Text may also be highlighted and dropped into the plumb colored windows. In this example some text was dragged and dropped into 1Plumb.htm. Notice that in the active window the copied text is greyed out and in the thumbnail the previous material was pushed half way up the picture by the new material. You can now see what has been taken from the active screen and what has been added to the previous thumbnail.


Under VIEW - 6+1 THUMBNAILS you may see one thumbnail enlarged so you may see it better. The scroll bar scrolls through them.

Some problems that PLUMB PUDDING eliminated.

The problem with the way other search engines get information from the web is that it is difficult to find and to keep what you really want. They search the web for your keywords and then present you with a difficult-to-decipher list of clickable web links. You are forced to click on one of these inadequate descriptions and then wait for the site to download. It is particularly annoying when the site is not available because even if you have a fast connection the various delays may add up to thirty seconds of waiting, after which you get nothing but an annoying message. Typically many of the found sites will have some material relevant to your quest, but even the best ones usually have a lot of irrelevant stuff too. Even after you do get web sites to display you must sift through mountains of junk and it is easy for you to become distracted and lose track of the "plums" which you do find. Also, even after you have found something you want, there is no way of easily putting it into a web-style document. PLUMB PUDDING solves all of those problems and many more.
