Doing a search with Agent Ransack works for finding captions.
In the results will be the Screenshot with caption.

Thank you for this. I've read about Agent Ransack before but hadn't tried it. Just did and it found every caption search test I threw at it. And with the export to clipboard or file I can generate about any type of listing I want. Very nice.

Both work fine. Thanks.
Look forward to the release ver.

Ctrl+A both selects AND copies at the same time
is this true? it shouldn't be.  Ctrl+A should just select all.

It did for me on my 1st test. Just tried again and it didn't???
Let me try a couple of things and I'll report back.


It's not happening with Ctrl+A now. Only with the to clipboard button which is fine. When I Ctrl+A I do get a "ding" sound like a copy is being made but that's it.
I even exited and restarted SC to see if that made a difference.
I must have pressed the to clipboard button before when the text went to the clipboard and thought I hit Ctrl+A. Sorry for the false alarm.  redface

I did notice that when typing in the small comment box (not using the [...] pop-up) that if you type something that is longer than the box the text runs under the [...] button and you do not see it. As you type more it will start to scroll again but the last couple of characters remain hidden.

Regarding my post on SC going behind the Firefox window, it isn't happening repeatably. Sometimes the main screen holds and sometimes it goes back behind.
Any suggestions to try?

I need to head out on errands so if you post back it will be an hour or so before I'm back.

Question...
If I press 'Keep image and show', whether I add a comment or not, the main screen does pop up, but then goes back behind another window. Firefox in this case.
Is this something in SC or my machine? Seems to me focus used to stay on the main SC window instead?

bob, try the new version i just uploaded.
the expanded text edit memo now should support some keyboard shortcuts like Ctrl+A to select all text, as well as Alt+letters to perform some quick actions via buttons, and ctrl+Enter and Escape to accept or reject edits quickly.

That is PERFECT! I really like that Ctrl+A both selects AND copies at the same time. And the "To clipboard" button sends the text without selecting anything first.
Haven't been able to locate the Alt+ options yet but will. I'm sure they will be of help.

Thanks for adding this before the release.

Thank You for adding this feature to be able to add the secondary caption in the pop-up prompt. It makes commenting the captures much easier now.

You can thank DC member Cranioscopical for that -- it was his good idea.

Ctrl+A in in caption box shouldn't be hard to add.

And a BIG Thank You Cranioscopical also. greenclp greenclp

New version uploaded that should fix the double-line caption stuff -- thank you guys for helping me track this one down!

Working like a charm now.  smiley
If I haven't before, Thank You  Thmbsup for adding this feature to be able to add the secondary caption in the pop-up prompt. It makes commenting the captures much easier now.

I know you are in the squish bugs mode now for the final release so could I add a request for the future?
When adding a caption with the [...] button in the prompt would it be possible to also be able to add the Ctrl-A function for typed text like you have in the comment section of the main window?
This would allow sending this caption to the clipboard, save & hide the pop-up and move on for another capture without opening the main window 1st. Save a few steps when trying to manually capture and comment screens quickly.

Based on lack of response to some other posts I've made on documenting screen shots I must be one of the few or only one trying to do this. Or there are other ways of doing it I haven't figured out yet.  huh
None of the other capture programs I've tested have this feature either or even come close to what you are doing now.  Thmbsup

Thanks again for your hard work and I'm sure at times a significant amount of hair pulling to make SSC as good as it is!

Helps me remember the reason I may have taken the capture.

I didn't think of that. Maybe even have the captions searchable.

That's something I try to do now on occasion. Only thing is it takes some time and a couple of extra programs to get what I'm looking for.
Maybe down the road.

Glad the double spacing could finally be reproduced.

that may not be correct, now mine is doing what yours is, when using both caption options
backspacing the blank lines fixes it

You beat me to it on my response.  smiley
I checked and my blend was already at normal.
Backspacing or clicking on the blank line and "Del" works too.

My reasoning at least behind having the ability to use both caption features is I can have a "boilerplate" added to each capture as well as a note specific to the capture. Helps me remember the reason I may have taken the capture.

Tested v3.23 for the bug I noticed.
It's fixed for adding multiple line captions in pop-up prompt window. I tested it in the single line box using \n and using the [...] pop-up window.

Checking further though, I found something that breaks it again.
When you enable "Add caption to image" under Post-Capture Options in main configuration and also add a caption via the pop-up prompt.
The information from both caption entries is there in the main screen but only after you manually re-size the caption box by dragging up (to enlarge the caption box) & moving the box down. The caption added via the pop-up prompt is double spaced again, the caption from the post-capture options is normal single spaced.

I tested this 6-7 different times with the post-capture add caption option on & off and it is repeatable on my system.

bob,

i'm having trouble reproducing that problem and i really would like to identify it and fix it.
can you experiment some more and see what you can figure out about what might trigger the problem and the conditions that cause it and any clues you might be able to find? maybe try using the caption button within the program to see if that has the same effect?

I tried 3 quick re-tests before posting.
1.) Did a capture, at the prompt selected save image and show. Used objects > add caption to image and typed "line 1 \nline 2 \nline 3" (without the quotes). Clicked ok and everything displays fine.

2.) Did a capture, at the prompt typed "line 1 \nline 2 \nline 3" (without the quotes) in the small add caption line. Then save image and show.
The main SSC window comes up and the caption displays the same as the screen in my previous post. Except the verbiage.

3) Did a capture, at the prompt pressed the [...] caption button. Typed:
Line 1
Line 2
Line 3 (did not press enter/a carriage return after the 3)

Pressed ok then save image and show. The main SSC window comes up and the caption displays the same as the screen in my previous post. Except the verbiage.

Adding a caption via the main SSC window seems to work fine. It is adding the caption via the pop-up prompt window that the problem shows up. For me at least.

Again, I'm running a portable version at the moment to do me tests. I can load the exe and give that a try if you think it may make a difference. It will be this evening though before I can do it. And can take some screen shots or possibly a video. Can your video capture record SSC ok?
Not being a smart a$$. Just don't know. Never had a need to use a video capture program till now.  huh

Ok I think it's nearly time to release this to public -- last chance to save me some embarrassment by finding some showstopper bugs.

Not sure if this is a bug or been covered before.
Running 3.21.01 in portable mode, Win 7.

I captured a screen, use the prompt me pop-up, and the [...] caption button to add a 3 line caption. I then clicked save and show. Here's what is displayed. Used snipping tool because I forgot if or how I could take a shot of SSC with SSC. Only 2 lines are shown and it looks like there is an extra line between each.

Could a hotkey (or button to the toolbar) be added to copy the caption of a saved image to the clipboard?

If you add a caption via the post-capture popup, it will also be in the comment/note section at the bottom of the main window, below file name.  If you click in there and do Ctrl+A then Ctrl+C you will copy it all to the clipboard.  Is that sufficient?

This is the way I have been doing it. And can continue to. Thought it would be a logical addition since there is already the Ctrl-C to copy the image and the copy path to clipboard icon next to the quick name field. Just cuts down on repetitive steps/keystrokes when you're taking a number of screenshots or transferring images and notes to a different app.

I've been trying out a couple of macro recording programs for some shortcuts between other programs. I can give them a shot to see what they can do.
65  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: What buttons should be in Screenshot Captor post-capture dialog? on: February 25, 2013, 10:33:09 AM
The changes and additions to the popup are great. Especially like the ability of adding a caption here. Just makes it easier and faster for me at least.
Could there be a setting for after adding the caption to save and hide instead of it saving and havng the main window pop up?
Edit: Never mind. Don't know what I was thinking. All I need to do is hit the save & hide.  embarassed
  
I also have a request but for the main window. Could a hotkey (or button to the toolbar) be added to copy the caption of a saved image to the clipboard? Please, please, please...

Bug?
When editing the caption you can select all of the text with the mouse or keyboard fine.
If you right-click the mouse to do a copy the text changes back to unselected.
Ctrl-C works fine.

Just downloaded & started the latest beta. Haven't used it much yet but want to say thanks for

[InterfaceChange] New hierarchical organization of options dialog.

Much easier now to navigate to what I'm looking for.  smiley

Edit:
Just tried the "EDITABLE caption" (taken from the help window). Still need to work out my steps flow but this is getting me closer to what I'vebeen wanting to do with SSC. 
THANK YOU!

The same thing was happening to me with Win7. Try starting it with 'Run as Administrator'. That worked for me.

Also keep an eye out for sales and specials.


I am usually not one to pay attention to sales, but isn't there some big sale day coming up for electronics in the US (Black Friday)? Might be good timing.

There are also some in store specials going on around here clearing out Win7 laptops & netbooks to make room for the Win8 machines. OfficeMax, Staples, WalMart, etc.

It's not a selection under the Hot Keys - Custom.

Gentle Bump

Does anyone know if what I'm wanting to try is possible with the post capture command line feature?
I'd give it a try, but don't know what to put as the command line parameters.

Thanks very much.
74  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Accessing the Comments Field on: September 19, 2012, 02:26:55 PM
Mouser,

I've been playing with some other different other ways to do want I want and leaving the metadata alone.
I saw Edit > Copy Text to Clipboard before but never tried it to see what it really did.  embarassed And darned if it doesn't place my screenshot comments in the clipboard just like I want, without the [SCM]actwin,0,0,0,0;.
So after I take my screenshot I go and Edit > Copy Image then Edit > Copy Text and last Edit > Copy File Path to the clipboard for each shot and then paste it wherever I want from CHS.

Could each of these be done automatically with Post Capture Commandline Tools to Run field in Post-Capture Options? If so could you or someone please provide a little help on what I should put there?  tellme

Thanks,
75  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: %num% counter does not function on: September 19, 2012, 02:06:34 PM
In version 3.08.01 if I add %num% as a counter to file name template it just puts 001 on each file. Hope this can be fixed as soon as possible.

The same was happening to me. Until mouser makes a change, here's how I make it work for me.
If you are using any other fields (ie %datetime%, %date%, etc) in the template that automatically changes the filename on capture, %num% sees the change and doesn't increment. But if you use a fixed name of some type (or in my case %quickfield%) and make changes to it, SC increments the files fine. I then put %datetime% or any other varible field names in the comments field to be saved and it still saves the information needed without affecting the file name.

Hope this helps.
