Another programming game I stumbled on seems much more focused on hard core or at least more efficiency-minded coders, but is very cool:

 I think I know this problem, can you download the dll on this thread:
 http://www.donationcoder....m/index.php?topic=18066.0
 
 And copy it over the existing one (should be in something like C:\Program Files x86\Mobysaurus).
 
 Let me know if that works.

that sorts any privacy worries anyway

the full bitmap object you paste can only be found in the extra .objects file anyway; if you shared the png file it would only contain what you can see in the png.

Thank you so much for your kind words.  It always surprises me how kind some people can be towards me even when they encounter frustration and bugs.. I only hope I can learn to be half as patient and kind in my interactions with others.

I will fix the issues with PBOL in a new release this week, and I was recently contacted by someone about Easy Screencast Recorder, and how the license key doesn't work in it -- or rather it does but the app still complains about being a beta test and expired -- so I will be releasing an update of that along with PBOL.

Something for all of us to remember..

In the last five years, starting around 2010, the shifting priorities of Google’s management left these archival projects in limbo, or abandoned entirely.

After a series of redesigns, Google Groups is effectively dead for research purposes. The archives, while still online, have no means of searching by date.

Google News Archives are dead, killed off in 2011, now directing searchers to just use Google.

If anyone thinks up a more unique idea for a android app that uses this same basic user interface approach (user-created items organized into tabs by tags), please let me know.
Some possibilities include: Android version of Progress Bars of Life and Android version of Point Motivator.

As tomos says, a manual scrolling capture should always be able to get it done.

Ok so let's see what light we can shed here:

When you paste an image onto another image in screenshot captor, you are creating a "bitmap object" that floats on top of the image, which can be resized, moved, deleted, etc.

The fact that the pasted image is an object explains the odd behavior you are seeing regarding cropping, etc.

Now the blurriness -- that may be my code antialiasing the bitmap object when it shouldn't -- i will look into that.

How to avoid the oddities you are encountering?  After pasting the bitmap, and getting it exactly how you want it, go to the Objects menu and choose to "flatten all objects to background".  This will merge in the pasted image into the main one.  All future cropping will proceed as you expect -- though note that you will no longer be able to move/scale the pasted object.

Let me know if it still seems blurry after you merge to the background.

New version is up on dc server and uploaded as a BETA on google play store (people who signed up as beta access should be able to see it).
It has a fix from dc member ewemoa to solve the problem where the (#) part of tabs was sometimes being cut off.
Also a few more bugfixes -- hopefully solving a crash that could happen.
Plus new options for controlling what is displayed (date, duration, or both), as well as ability for advanced users to customize the date format, etc.

you need an upgrade -- i've been upgrading a lot recently.  this feature was added in the last 24 hours.

have you tried the widget option to use a background?
you can't customize the color yet -- it's black.  but it should make text visible clearly regardless of your home screen.

New version is up with some new widget options.

Updated; you can now specify both a reminder and an overdue setting for an item.

Every time I try to escape my reputation of filling my apps with a million options, they drag me back in again!

yes, it should fix that problem.
im just saying a secondary problem is that people have suggested i should make the icon more mobile-looking, and that might be best to do that instead.

 Grin what i meant is make the image design itself more squarish, rather than an image which is technically square but has large transparent blank area on one side.

@mouser: It appears to me that you just need to add extra (transparent) padding to the top and bottom of the image to make it as tall as it is wide.

i could do that.. but it's been suggested to me that the "icon" is not very mobile-like, and that i should have a more square shaped icon..

Does it automatically grab the key from somewhere else if you have another DC program installed?

all my apps do. if you have received a license for donating, it will be seen by all apps, and be valid for all of time, as soon as you put it into one.

Hi MikleB!

Ok I can see the confusion!! Somehow i didn't put the About menu in the tray menu or on the DOCKED menu!
I'll release an update soon that fixes that.

For now though, the trick is to UNDOCK the program from the side of your screen (click and drag it off side of screen). Only then will you see a help menu with an About menu item that will let you put in license key.

I can't believe no one has pointed this out to me until now!
