file.urd

Open the specified Ultra Recall Info Database.  If not provided, the active database will be used (if already started) or the most recently opened (if any) database will be reopened.

The Item | Copy Item Command-Line menu item can be used to generate the command-line for opening the selected Info Item (the format is configured on the Miscellaneous Options tab of the Options Dialog).  And the Item | Create Desktop Shortcut menu item can be used to create a Windows desktop shortcut to open the selected Info Item.

 

Ultra Recall also supports a URL syntax for opening a database to a specific item within the database.  This URL syntax can be used from the Windows Shell (the Run Dialog, Explorer, etc.) or other applications that support a URL for accessing applications and documents.  To create this URL syntax, see the notes in the help topic for the Miscellaneous Options tab of the Options Dialog.

 

Notes:

Microsoft Outlook must be running and have a current selection for the Outlook flags to operate correctly
When a command-line initiated import is finished, a sound is played by Ultra Recall to indicate completion
Outlook import, sync, and export operations are available in the Professional edition only.

 

Examples:
