176  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Capture only part of a scrolling window on: July 15, 2014, 10:07:50 AM
First, let me recap what I had to do since my key-clicks differed from what was stated in the video.
Again, I am using an HP laptop, which involves having the use the function (fn) and Alt keys.

Open SC (via the Start menu, or double-click its shortcut icon)
Its icon appears in the system tray, with a blue screen background.

Press fn+Ctrl+Shift+PrtScr to obtain the red area-capture rectangle.
The SC's system tray icon, with a red screen background

If necessary, move your mouse pointer so that it is in the window area to be captured,
otherwise the red rectangle will select a different (possibly larger) rectangular area.

Press  fn+Ctrl+Click

Select Item 3: Begin a Scrolling Window Capture on this Object.

Select Item 2: Let me Manually Scroll the Window

Click top bullet (if needed): Target Window with Vertical Content

Click Next

Minimize or move dialog box outside the window to be captured.

Press fn+Alt+PrtScr to capture the first screen

Press the Page Down button on your keyboard to scroll down an entire page.

Press fn+Alt+PrtScr to capture the next screen

Repeat the Capture/Scroll process until you capture all of the screens that you want.

Click Done in the Dialog box that you had Minimized/Moved.

Press Start Here: Guess Margins
Press Then: Guess Overlaps Given Margins

Press 100% then Preview now to view the capture in the small window pane area.

Press OK, Save built image button.
-
yes, laptops can be troublesome if you want to use the more 'exotic' keys.
That's a good description/tutorial - could be added to the help file.

Quote
A dialog box appears with options to Discard, Save, Print, ... the image.
If you save the file, change the file extension to say jpg is desired.
It defaults to file type, png.
-
png makes a much better image, hence the default -
default format can be changed in options (Advanced>)

If I select to print the image, the entire captured image does not get print[/i].
In my case, only Page 2 of 3, printed.
-
this sounds like a bug.
I thought a workaround would be to save and then print, but you say:

1 I saved the image to a jpg file, then opened it to print it.
The program only prints Page 1 normal size, or the entire capture as "fit-to-page",
so that it is small, thus hard-to-read.

2 If I copy & paste the jpg file into a Word document, it only keep one first page,
based on the margins set for the Word document.

3 Similarly, if I save it as a pdf file , Adobe Reader can print the entire image in "fit-to-page",
not the normal/captured size.
-
I numbered the above:
1) I'm unclear here: when you say 'Page 1', what do you mean - it should be one single image
2) same as above
3) PDF in Adobe Reader will print a large image here if my printer page-size is big enough for the image - otherwise it can print a detail, or 'fit-to-page'.

And, by capturing an integer number of successive full-screen snapshots, I am capturing more information than what I may want. Example:   I may only want to capture the area of 2.25 screens, but in order to do so, I must capture 3 full screens; thus, I have extra information that I may not want.
-
capture only as much as you want - you will have a bigger overlap with the last two shots if you only want a quarter of a screen. SC seems to manage this quite well here.
EDIT// no, not as successful as I thought - easiest solution would be to crop your image

The european robin will hang out if you're doing any gardening or pretty much up to anything outside. I've fond memories of messing around in the garden as a kid while my dad did the serious gardening and a robin hanging out nearby with it's head cocked waiting for a worm to appear.
But I've never seen or heard of one trying to teach someone how to catch a worm Kiss

Scented Candles for Life’s Disappointments

http://theflickingcandles.com/collections/all

Nice. I suppose it's no accident that they named their company "flicking" candles and write it in all caps so that the L and the I in flick looks like a U.

dont know if it qualifies there with a serif font -
unlike the Megaflicks sign...

Hi DaleB
you dont need the SC main window open at all -
by click in the window, I meant the window you want to do a capture of.

You can update e.g. by right-clicking the tray icon.

Using manual scrolling capture:
(which is fairly new so I'm not sure how well it is documented)

  • Click in your window
  • Ctrl+Shift+PrtScr
  • Window will be framed with red line
  • Ctrl+Click in window
  • Click on Option 2 (Manual Scroll) in the dialogue that opens
  • Follow instructions,
  • Scroll as much or as little as you want
  • Follow instructions (Guess margins; Guess overlap) best look at it @ 100% to see it's okay

Havent used it much but it's been 100% successful here so far.

Update v2.0.0.14 - http://vdsfreak.com/post/90245038515/note5

- Fixed right arrow/page hotkey to switch notes
- When creating a new theme it is based off the currently selected one
- Added import/export theme to the Color Theme Editor
- If a theme is modified it asks to save
- Added ability to add sub menus and separators to the URLs menus.

looking good thumbs up
I'm not sure what the last one means though.

Doesnt bother me, but I was wondering is it intentional that the right-click menu is different from the app-key context menu?
(right-clcik menu being more limited - tbh I dont understand the ones lower down on the app-key menu)

yeah, sorry for being so 'smiley' about it,

edit// xxx.12 - I see you've a new version - will check again //

hi Chris,
enjoying the expanding options thumbs up
Escape and minimise to tray working well here (win 7, x64)

Changing notes with Arrowkeys is broken - Ctrl+Leftarrow works but not Ctrl+Rightarrow. Likewise when the modifier is changed to Alt. Likewise also when Pagekey is used (PgUp works; PgDn not)

When making a new theme:
let's say I'm using Slate theme. I click 'Add' and the new theme reverts to the default.
I'm wondering would it be possible that the new theme could be based on the current theme?

Tray icon:
YMMV but I find the tray icon is visually heavy on the side black bar. I'd recommend making both bars black, or making the black one something equivalent to red e.g. blue or green. (Not sure of my terminology there.)

I hate penalty shoot-outs - it's no way to win and no way to lose - and yet, in the end, it would squeeze emotion out of a stone...

@saurabhdua - Re the godmode shortcuts, they dont sound like what you want - if you are still interested in them, a simple internet search should get you a couple of good articles and/or simple instructions on how to create. My link/instructions were on how get them into FARR.

@tomos - You can edit the themes using the new theme editor to make the backgrounds lighter. I can still make you a theme with lighter backgrounds if you wish.

I'm sorted - thank you very much !! (I had misread an earlier post, and thought I could only edit text colour with the editor)

PS download now xx.06 - the ini file is still in there FWIW.
195  Other Software / Announce Your Software/Service/Product / Re: Note5 on: June 26, 2014, 05:36:16 AM
^yeah, xx.5 here too.
Also, I presume this by mistake: you have an ini file in the download (I just copied everything over before I noticed it).

Missed out on a couple of versions - great advances/improvements going on thumbs up

I tried changing the text colour on my favourite theme (the default one) - but (for my eyes and monitor at any rate) the darker backgrounds are too dark for black text, but not dark enough for white text. I've started using the Slate theme - it's got the lightest backgrounds I think. First panel is still to dark for my tastes.
Request:
one theme where the backgrounds are all relatively light.

Bug: cant consistently reproduce it though undecided
  • 1) open Note5
  • 2) maximise the window
  • 3) open a note
  • 4) change focus to another note with the mouse; window jumps back to normal size
-
Edit: this seems to consistently reproduce it - for step 2):
maximise the window => normal window => maximise window => step 3, etc.

Cruise ship getting a remake - and an extension tellme
it's hard to understand if they just cut it apart, or was it desigened to be extensible. Worth watching full screen anyways.

Looks like something you'd find sold through an infomercial.

But wait...there's more! Order right now and you'll get not one, but two Magic Spaghetti Forks for the low price of $19.99!

Just imagine the beginning of it, where they show a series of idiots doing it "the old-fashioned way" and making a big mess, with spaghetti flying all over the place, hitting the walls. Because that's the infomercial's favorite tactic for convincing you that you have been doing things wrong, all your life.
 (see attachment in previous post)

at first I thought it was like one of those screwdrivers that turn when you push - now if I could attach a fork head to one of those...

Hey, is that Glen Hansard of The Frames?

I think he (Glen) and she (Maria?) have a band together. Or at least an album or two. Definitely worth checking out

I lived in Dublin when the Frames were in full swing (the 90's), but never saw them embarassed

Heard one of Glen Hansard's albums when passing a record shop a couple of years ago - didnt know who it was, but it prompted me to go in and buy it -

Not sure about the guys, but I am sure the women here can relate, although I have not done anything like this since the 80's, when most jeans did not contain any Lycra. The only thing missing from this video is the coat hanger, to pull up the zipper.  Grin
