I have a few jpg's that I want to crop the same size region from each jpg.  Is there a way to input a size, for instance, 150x140?  I see there is a button to select predefined regions but it doesn't have a place to type in custom sizes.
Thank you for your time
hello and welcome,

you can add your own preset sizes by going to 'Preferences' > 'Advanced Tweaking' > 'My favorite preset sizes'. hope this is what you were looking for. smiley

@Bazsl: i see that "turn it off turn it on" has fixed the problem for you but it is also good to check if there is any anti-virus/anti-malware is blocking Screenshot Captor. some banking/financial apps by default block all screenshot tools.
22  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: AutoHotkey script to replace spaces in file names with underscores on: May 23, 2014, 06:20:30 AM
Thanks for all your help. I have UAC switched off. I've never seen that tray balloon pop up, but then I only managed to execute the script twice so far, and after both instances things got messed up.

I'm starting to think that the problem may have to do with some conflict with my Apple keyboard remapping. For example, I get different behaviour with clipboard related shortcuts depending on the types of shortcut keys I use. Also, when I tried to set up a hotkey for the ArsClip macro and hit Command, which is mapped as Win, it showed up as Win+CTRL. So I suspect a lot more is happening when I press certain keys than I'm able to see.

since the script worked on tomos' PC, we can isolate the Apple keyboard and see how AHK recognises the key presses. right-click on a running script and select 'Open'. from the window that appears, go to View|Hotkey and their methods. now you can see how your hotkeys are registered. it should look like this then post it here.

Anyway, here is my keyboard remapping script, in case anyone might be able to spot the culprit in there:

i don't think there is anything wrong here.

I had a quick go, got an error message showing file paths with underscores added - but there is no change to focused files.
No change if I also run the Count_words script.
I see that these paths are also copied to the clipboard.
 (see attachment in previous post)
Win7 x64 / UAC on highest setting / AHK_L
@tomos: thanks for testing out. Kiss don't worry, the changed text is only stored in clipboard. in any case, you can press Ctrl+v to paste the new contents.
24  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: AutoHotkey script to replace spaces in file names with underscores on: May 22, 2014, 10:32:55 PM
@dr_andus: i cannot replicate the problem you face. i too run several AHK scripts (5 raw, 4 compiled) with a couple of clipboard extenders but the script i posted had no problems.

what happens if you copy-paste my script in to the Alt+W one? do you get a tray balloon like in the image below?

at this point, i suspect it has something to do with Win7's UAC which suppresses the script silently, instead of elevating the process.

i wonder if someone could try the script and post some feedback. @rjbull, do you fancy? smiley
25  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: AutoHotkey script to replace spaces in file names with underscores on: May 21, 2014, 09:21:59 PM
lanux128, many thanks for the script! I'm having a bit of trouble with it though. As I'm using an Apple keyboard, there isn't a Win key. So I changed WIN+D to ALT+V. After that I was able to have one successful instance, but after that it wouldn't do it, even when I reload the script.

This makes me wonder if some bits of this script interfere with some other bits in my file. I don't know anything about AutoHotkey, but for example I already have this elsewhere in the file:

are you running the script by itself or you copy-pasted in to your main script? i have added more error-trapping in case copying to clipboard somehow fails so please check out the new script from the above link.

btw, what OS are you running this on? it works fine here on Win 7 Pro (x64).

NB: currently there are a few AHK forks. fyi i am using this one, previously known as AHK_L.
