I'm rewatching "The Puffy Chair", an indie movie by the Duplass brothers -- who I think are geniuses.  One of my favorites.

Also, you may want to try landscape orientation if the image is longer than it is tall.

The print *BUTTON* sends the screenshot directly to the printer without a preview.

Try using the Print menu item under the File menu (not the button) at least once, since it shows you a preview where you can change margins to 0.

Let me know if that helps.

With SC already running and using the run command I get the "Hello there! You've tried to launch a new copy..." popup. I got a UAC popup 1st asking if I wanted it to run.

thanks bob -- so your single-instance detection is working correctly.
ps. the new beta does away with that "hello there" message.
32  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Command-line option starts a new instance of SC on: April 14, 2014, 09:09:12 AM
How strange. Ok i'm looking into it now.

Can anyone else confirm that they get 2 instances or whether their installation properly limits it to a single instance?
My XP and Win7 installs both behave properly.
33  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Command-line option starts a new instance of SC on: April 14, 2014, 08:34:19 AM
Ok that's a big clue.  That does *not* happen here (Win 7).
So it seems to me you are experiencing a generic non-specific failure of the single-instance behavior of SC.

Now the question is why.

1. Can anyone else test and see what behavior they see?
2. Lanux -- in your original post you say you end up with 2 instances in tray.  Can I ask you to elaborate? Do you end up with 2 separate copies of the program running? Or just 2 system tray icons?
3. Lanux, can you see if the same behavior happens if you EXIT all running instances, and then start them both up (let the first fully start before launching second) with your new shortcut?
34  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Command-line option starts a new instance of SC on: April 14, 2014, 08:00:44 AM
Ok, I'm on it.

Oh, you could do a test for me -- can you make another shortcut to a second instance with NO commandline parameters -- and tell me if it launches a second instance in that case?
35  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Command-line option starts a new instance of SC on: April 14, 2014, 07:44:59 AM
Assuming you are sure its launching the same ScreenshotCaptor.exe location as is already running (i.e. not two different versions of SC installed in different locations), then this is a bug, and I will look into it today and try to fix right away.
It shouldn't be launching a second instance.

37  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Command-line option starts a new instance of SC on: April 14, 2014, 07:28:06 AM
does that still happen even with the new beta?

The solution that worked for me was manually adding the folders that make up this path...

Actually that is VERY interesting information!

It may suggest that the problem that SC may be having on some of these networked directories is not with the core functionality of reading and writing to those network share directories, but only with some bug in CREATING FOLDERS in those directories?

I would love to hear more about this possibility and any evidence to support it.

Sorry it's been so long since I released an update!

As usual when it's been a while, I'm going to be a little cautious and just release some minor fixes first, then I'll try to dig a little deeper and add some features a little later.

v4.8.2 BETA - April 12, 2014
  • [MinorChange] Removed the discontinued imm.io image hosting service from uploader services; defaulted to imageshack (supporting both anonymous and non-anonymous accounts).
  • [MinorChange] Clarified warning about image files being visible to public if uploaded to anonymous hosting account.
  • [MinorChange] If a second instance is launched, SC no longer displays a warning message, it simply un-minimizes the first instance.
  • [BugFix] Pixelating a tiny region with large grid size could result in floating point error.
  • [BugFix] Red box capture mode was capturing regions that were missing 1 pixel width around each edge.
  • [BugFix] Resizing image from resize form could shrink the close-up zoom panel.
  • [BugFix] Trying to undo from resizing image would not undo object size changes (hit undo twice to do this now).
  • [BugFix] Automoving old screenshots at startup had not been working in recent versions.
  • [MinorFeature] Added option to start the auto-capture timer at startup.
  • [MinorFeature] New option to immediately jump cursor to arrow text edit box when selecting/adding line arrows for quick labeling and label changes (see drawing object options tab).
  • [MinorFeature] Added option to disable docking behavior of Quick Capture Bar.
  • [MinorFeature] Added detailed warning and confirmation dialog with tips before attempting to resize an image containing objects.

Download link in first post of thread.  I'd appreciate any beta reports.

I can definitely see the use of it.. I am just always hesitant to make those kinds of things that change system registry.. There are some good free tools you could use to do it yourself:

FARR should run fine on any resolution, though as with all of my apps, the options dialog may have small fonts.

As for right click menu item, you mean add a menu item to your windows explorer file browser to add an item to FARR?

There is already a right-click add alias item in farr itself, so if you search for an item in far (or use directory browsing option in farr), you can right-click to add an alias for it.

I posted my blue cheese ranch dressing recipe earlier.
Now I'm going to tell you about the salad i've been making and eating lately, which i use the dressing on:

First, I make large batches of the basic salad and store in zip lock bags which i eat over the course of a week:
  • 1 part Iceberg lettuce
  • 2 part red romaine or red leaf lettuce
  • 1 part spinach
  • some red cabbage
  • lots of shredded radishes
  • a little shredded carrot
  • lots of chickpeas (garbanzo beans; canned)
  • Red and orange peppers, diced

Now here's the part you may think sounds disgusting, but is delicious:
  • Fill a smallish (cereal bowl size?) bowl with cubed/pressed tofu and sliced mushrooms
  • Coat tofu and mushrooms lightly in soy sauce
  • Add a big handfull of grated cheddar cheese
  • Stir to mix.
  • Microwave for 5 minutes until cheese melts
  • Mix the tofu/mushroom/cheese into the salad.

Delicious!

I'm a bit torn by that techdirt article.

I'm a huge fan of techdirt, but I've also written glowingly of StartCom.

Using StartCom is a decidedly unpleasant experience -- the website is a throwback to the worst days of the web, and the entire process is frustrating and confusing.

Nevertheless, the price and service are remarkable compared to the alternatives I've found.  The ssl certificate industry as a whole feels like it's designed to leach money out of you like a vampire -- and like a club where only the rich can afford to be secure.

StartCom always struck me as a little independent outfit run by one guy who was doing much of it on his own with a small margin.  If so, i think it's unfair to attack them as being corporate bigwigs profiting off the backs of tragedy -- and instead view it as a situation where they may simply not have the profit margin to provide so much help for free.

I really don't see a fundamental problem with charging people a "reasonable" amount to handle certificate revocation.  Just my 2 cents.

When these big giant corporations are ripping people off hand over fist and rolling in money, they can afford to be generous in situations like this and benefit from the public relations coup.  But if you turn to a small independent low-profit-margin ssl certificate service, i think it's unreasonable to expect them to be able to eat such costs.

Welcome, Pete!

Ok so there are two issues -- first, if you want to keep the clips open and paste multiple ones, just use ctrl+alt+W to show the main window and then double click items to send them to the last window.

Second, if you want to paste items and move down the list so that each new paste gets you the next one down, then what you are looking for is the "STACK" feature.  Unfortunately, although I coded it, I do not remember how to use it in the slightest.  Hopefully others can remind us..  ohmy

The back+forward buttons (which i use a lot) on the new MX are not as convenient as the ones on the revolution, but otherwise it's a very similar experience.
