Screenshot Captor / Images pasted into onenote are half size
« on: November 20, 2017, 08:46 AM »
Somehow, most of the time when I do a capture (with automated border and drop shadow) and then paste the image into Onenote, my images are about 50% of the original screen as per the screenshot attached.
This makes some of the images hard to read.
Any ideas why this would be the case? I looked to see if I had an option to resample the size by 50% but I am not seeing it...

Screenshot Captor / hotkeys no longer working in version 4.15.2
« on: November 11, 2015, 09:55 AM »
On Windows 7,sp1, using the portable version, my hotkeys for screencapturing no longer work for any of the captures modes (ie shift prtscrn, alt-prtscrn etc.
Using the menus to run the capture works, but no hotkeys.
No notifications of conflicting hotkeys is shown (that I'm aware of)
The only thing unusual in my upgrade process is that for some reason I downloaded the regular installer, ran it, realised that wasn't the version I needed, removed it, downloaded the zip file, extracted and then ran the file from the extracted location.
I have made a change to my preferences in the hope this would re-write my preferences. The prefs are still there as far as action after capture, file location, moving files etc.
Any ideas/debugging I can do?

Also the Help/check for updates says my version is newer than the version on the website (4.15.0)

I had to blow away my profile after it got corrupt on my computer and I am using the portable screenshot captor (v4.7.2)
When I make changes to my settings and hit apply or accept, everything seems ok.
However when I exit screenshotcaptor, I get a notification window in the notification area at the bottom right of my screen that complains about not being able to write to somewhere on my profile. The problem is that the notification only stays up for about 1/2 second so I don't have time to read the whole message.
Error is "ERROR: settings could not be saved (Saving final, really trying) - to file \\servername\users$\my username\my documents\donationcoder\screenshotcaptor\screenshotcaptor.ini.new;exception: Cannot create file "\\\\servername\users$\my username\my documents\dona" at which point the tag does not have enough space to capture the entire directory.

I'm not sure why the ini file is being written to this location if i'm running from the portable zip (although i did used to have screenshot captor installed as a full install. I have removed the installed version but still get this message).

Just downloaded dcupdater in an attempt to update screenshotcaptor. On installation and running the program i get the following error message "Error:\\server01\user$\andy helsby\mydocs\donationcoder\dcupdater\dcupdater.ini is not a dcupdater configuration file. Please delete it if this problem persists."
The dcupdater directory does not exist and I suspect this is because most people assume the username is only going to be one word not two so the original directory probably stopped at \\server01\user$\andy
I've seen this before with a couple of other apps (including my own batch scripts!)
Creating the dcupdater directory by hand fixes this particular issue.

However, it's not showing me as having screenshotcaptor installed - it just lists the dcupdater program.
I've "fixed" the issue by downloading the program through dcupdater (I was running 2.88)

I've looked all over for a utility that will quickly (and preferably invisibly) enable or disable my second monitor on my laptop (toggling the current setting).  Typically my vga out is used for extra display space or for giving presentations but if I then have to move my laptop to a meeting the windows open on the external display stay there and I can't see them without going into display, settings and unticking the extend display.
Any chance someone could please write a utility to do that (I was thinking of sendkeys and autoit but it takes time for the dialog box to pop up and get displayed, a windows function would be more efficient I would have thought?)
