Screenshot Captor / Re: Standalone screenshot window
« on: August 19, 2019, 08:42 PM »
Ok well I am open to hearing requests to modify that functionality.  My memory is it was implemented mainly so people could view captures at FULL screen size, without the normal SC interface getting in the way.. Most useful for people with multiple monitors, so one monitor can be only the screenshot and another is SC with large thumbnail browser functionality.

that's something different, a crazy feature I added a while ago that I barely remember how it works :)

when you say 'mini version of the screenshot' is that the 'toggle standalone screenshot window' option?

no, it's quite different.  it's what you get what you choose "after capture show: post-capture pop-up dialog"

is there a reason why the capture window can't 'pop up' by default?

I'm not sure what you mean by the capture window..  SC has 3 basic options for what to do after a screenshot.  It can pop up a small post-capture dialog to show you a mini version of the screenshot and give you some choices.  Or it can restore it's main window to let you edit the screenshot, etc.  Or it can stay minimized.

The difficulty in what you are requesting is simply that it is basically asking for a 4th option -- you want to pop-up the capture, but in a way that closes if you click outside of it, and you want it to be sized for the capture (at least when feasible).  I'm thinking it would be easier to write/use a standalone viewer for that and just tell SC to launch it after each capture and keep itself minimized.

This doesn't really answer your question directly, but what you could do is have SC stay minimized after a capture, and have it launch a 3rd party standalone tool after each screenshot, passing it the screenshot file name.
So that standalone could do what you want, and you might find an image viewer that behaves as you want.
In fact a while ago someone made one for dc folks that was all about showing an image in an overlay (semi-transparent?) fashion..

I picked up this awesome $21 bike "computer" gadget for my bike last week; nicely shows speed, and lots of information in a nice way:

ps I haven't ridden a bike in 20 years but last week we did two 20 mile trips, and then on a whim signed up for a 50 mile event yesterday.. We had fun!

Living Room / Re: Buying a 2TB SSD to replace my 2TB HDD
« on: August 16, 2019, 10:55 PM »
samsung seems to make some of the best SSD.

Many of us are running a combination of a good SSD as the C drive, and then a traditional large HD as D drive.  There are some advantages of this:
1. You don't have to get as big an SSD.
2. With 2 hds, you can more easily backup your system drive to the traditional large HD.
3. Even the largest most expensive SSD cannot compare with capacity of cheap traditional HD.

1. Worry of running out of space on your C drive.
2. No speedup of access of data files on D drive.

Thank you for the kind words -- let me know if it doesn't start working for you in the next couple of days.

just tested it and it seems to be working here.

It's now been put in place; see post in admin area.  Testing has begun..

We are testing a new anti-spam process, where the first post of a new member will not be visible until it is approved.
If we can get it working, the amount of spam visible on the forum should drop considerably.

But the potential for real visitors being confused and having their post not show up for a bit is a concern.

Please let me know if you have any trouble posting on the forum ([email protected] or see the contact page).

Another reason to move to a system where first posts from users need to be approved before they show up, huh?

I'll bite for $9.  I've purchased it based on your recommendation.  I'll let you know how it is when I get around to playing it.

Let me look into this -- it does seem like in the first screeenshot, that FARR is not using all the space it could.

The latest official release is from February of this year (2019).

Next year then!

Back from Gencon 2019.  A fun time was had by all, as usual.  Glad to be back with you folks though.

I could adda an option to not show messages I guess.

I don't know the answer but I'd like to hear what people think -- especially for a free one.
I do think I remember this being discussed before..

I think maybe this thread pointing me to PyCharm:

Yes, thanks, edited post.

when you say want a cloud service right?

No, what I meant was, I don't need a hosting service if I just use software to backup to my own NAS device in another room.

I still think it's important to have an online offsite backup service these days, but I don't need versioning on that, so a simpler solution would be possible.

It seems pretty clear at this point that SPIDEROAK is malfunctioning silently on my pc; deleted items never get deleted/removed. If i try to empty the trash it just says it queued the operation but never does anything even after days.

glad it works using the top number keys so you can use those.

numeric keypad does not (even though it is on).
try toggling numpad and see if it works in that case?

Sorry for the delayed reply.

I've uploaded a beta to address the compression quality settings being reversed, and to show the proper screenshot save directory in options:
Beta download of v1.13.01:

But can you clarify what Windows 10 notifications you are talking about?

Thanks Shades, that's fantastic info, since SpiderOak seems to be ignore my attempts to delete stuff from the UI.

BUT: Spideroak website seems to suggest they support webdav, but I can't find any info about what url to connect to.. any thoughts?
