26  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: LATEST VERSION INFO THREAD - ScreenshotCaptor - v4.9.3 BETA - DEC 13, 2014 on: December 16, 2014, 09:12:12 AM
New minor beta uploaded, just getting back into the swing of things.  Although it is a very minor feature, the new (and default) print option to automatically choose page orientation based on aspect ratio of the image seems long overdue.

v4.9.3 BETA - December 16, 2014
  • [Feature] New print option (default) to match automatically page orientation to screenshot aspect ratio.
  • [MinorFeature] Added keyboard accelerator for Edit -> Select -> Remember item.
  • [BugFix] Uploader dialog was opening on wrong initial tab.
  • [BugFix] Patch region special effect was missing last row+column.
  • [Change] If you try to minimize SC and have unsaved changes, choosing cancel/dontsave will now still minimize the program.
  • [Feature] When you have multiple arrows selected and change arrow properties, all properties are updated except text labels.
  • [Feature] You can now save and load object preset files (saves and loads all properties of objects like arrows, text memos, etc); you can select some objects and apply an object preset file to change the properties of the selected objects.  It will save the settings of the current tool, or all tools if not in a specific object mode. See Objects menu. To show the Saved presets on the main toolbar (instead of as a submenu of Objects menu) see the "More Interface Options" tab.

28  Other Software / Developer's Corner / OS News on The Devaluing Effect of the Application Store Model on: December 15, 2014, 07:02:18 PM
There's a post at OS News today that discusses some of the real negative impacts of Apple and Android App Stores and the "Freemium" model:



Apple (and Google) have instigated a race to the bottom, massively devaluing the work of developers... I have never made a secret out of my dislike of the application store model, exactly because of what it does to independent developers. It devalues their work, and independent, small development houses will simply be unable to survive in this race to the bottom. The end result? Apple and a few large companies win, but independent developers and users lose.

Welcome Shohreh -- you are right it needs a link to forum section in help menu -- adding that now.
ps. You can add VisualWGet and other tools to the menu configuration at the bottom of the General option tab.

32  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: 2014-2015: Best tablet specs for ebook reading on: December 15, 2014, 09:26:20 AM
So I was recently gifted a 10 inch tablet (samsung galaxy tab 4 10.1 nook model), and i think it is big enough for pretty comfortable reading of letter page sized pdfs.  The 13" tablets would be even better of course, but the high-quality 10" screen does seem to be a reasonable solution, and good enough to perhaps try to move completely away from paper books.  Especially in light of ewemoa's valid point about weight being a concern -- you might not think you will care but if you're trying to walk around and read it on the go you soon will care about weight.

35  DonationCoder.com Software / Multi Photo Quotes / Re: Feature Request: Jump to the picture file on: December 13, 2014, 05:59:18 PM
Fun idea, and easy enough.
Another option would be to have a key that copies current image path to clipboard.
One problem though is when there are multiple images -- there's a case where copying all image paths to clipboard might be best solution.
36  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Auto Cropping Book Cover Images on: December 13, 2014, 03:58:49 PM
Glad you like it -- I must say it really does help motivate me to continue development on the tools when I hear they are useful to people.

I think you are getting into an area where a standalone helper tool would really be the way to go.
My memory of the "Select Foreground" option is really basically the same as AutoCrop -- except that once it identifies the background it doesnt crop but it preselects the interior (foreground) rectangle that it would have cropped to.

There was an image cropping tool made my one of the members of this forum.. he might be able to add the features you need..
37  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Can't Get a Border on Captured Shots on: December 13, 2014, 10:48:22 AM
You are right.. looks like the SaveAs is not applying the post capture effects -- at least not the border one but probably none of the others.
I'll put it on my bug fix list.
38  DonationCoder.com Software / LaunchBar Commander / Re: reserving space with autohide on top on: December 13, 2014, 08:55:30 AM
Slide has a visual animation while sliding in.

Thus it would be great to have an option which prevents this unwanted slide-in.

LBC already tried to ignore corners to avoid this, but you have two other options to try to reduce it:
  • First, on the "Docking Bar 2" tab you can change the Appear Delay to a longer value.  That should help..
  • Second, and here is one I was slow to adopt but now love, is to not stretch the bar to full screen edge size.  See here for more help on that: http://www.donationcoder....m/index.php?topic=22814.0

Good idea, I will add it.

Really nice  thumbs up
41  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: View image without objects on: December 13, 2014, 08:37:37 AM
Ouch, I apologize for that.
Let me think for a second about how to handle that.
So what SC is doing is saving the file without objects so that you can edit it, but marking it as needing resaving in ScreenshotCaptor itself.
If you edit the now-objectless file in another program, SC will reload and reupdate it.
And if all goes expected, when you navigate away from the image in SC, it will prompt you to resave (or auto resave based on your options).

But if, as happened to you, you dont navigate away from the image in SC (or minimize SC window) and it hasnt had a chance to resave it, your image file will still be in a limbo state without objects drawn on it.

The dilemma is that Screenshot Captor doesn't *know* that you have stopped editing the program in a different program so it doesn't know how to ask you what you want to do after you've stopped.  Possible solutions would be for SC to use a temporary file to send to your graphic editor and reload from THAT file after you finish editing it.  That would make a bit more sense but has its own difficulties.  It's such a rare function that I'm not sure it's worth the effort.

Another option would be to put up some bit reminder text on the bottom area or something, with a button to dismiss/save.
42  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: SUGGESTION: Maximum Screen Size on: December 13, 2014, 08:29:45 AM
It's still on my todo list, I still like the idea a lot -- just haven't gotten to it yet.  But I will.
43  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: German version on: December 13, 2014, 08:26:25 AM
There are so many German users of Screenshot Captor (i'm not sure why but I attribute it to their good judgement); Germany certainly deserves a localized version.  It's not out of the question, it's just not at the top of my priority list at the moment.. Perhaps when I get a nudge from Angela Merkel that she is ready to deploy Screenshot Captor throughout all government offices smiley
44  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Can't Get a Border on Captured Shots on: December 13, 2014, 08:17:32 AM
Hmm it's working here..
I wonder.. Let me ask, are you using the "Post Capture Pop-up Dialog" mode where it shows you a preview and asks you what you want to do after every capture?  The border won't be shown in that dialog.
If so, what are you selecting to do with the image at that point?
45  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: It makes me crazy ... SC zoom while i'm screening on: December 13, 2014, 07:59:45 AM
Ok, so I know this issue has come up at least once before, having to do with some odd resolution confusion issue.. I'm just trying to remember the details.
I do know that there was a similar issue that was fixed.. It's possible it snuck back in or that it's something else.
Can you elaborate what you mean by "on multi screen"?
Do other full screen/workspace captures in SC work properly?
46  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Auto Cropping Book Cover Images on: December 13, 2014, 07:47:32 AM
A third party tool might be best for this -- especially for things like adding some extra borders.
However, I will note that if you enable the Scanner Functions of Screenshot Captor you will see a new toolbar and one of the items on it is AutoCrop, designed to remove the background borders.
47  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Using Microsoft LifeCam Studio Webcam with Screen Capture on: December 13, 2014, 07:45:47 AM
Glad you got it worked out.  The webcam capture feature is not one used by many -- frankly I almost forgot about it.  So do let me know if you find there are things it should do better.
48  Special User Sections / Activation/License/Language Help / Re: About signing up to download freeware license keys - READ IN PLEASE on: December 13, 2014, 07:37:33 AM
I've said it many times before but I can only sympathize with people who get frustrated -- I can understand why it would happen and I can all too easily see myself in their shoes and being more angry than they are.  So I apologize for the complications in the process.  I try to contact the people who post and help them out though the damage may be done at that point.  It's just that there are other programming tasks that have inevitably get higher priority to work on than these things.

New version is up with better drag+drop.

Do you folks think its important to start the new user off with some pre-made initial entries? Or leave it blank on first start?
