only by restarting Screenshot Captor and not "silently" in the background?
no, it should work silently in the background on the currently running instance.

Sorry for the delayed reply -- i'm not sure why its not working in the first case, let me look into it and try to make it work.
54  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: Android: looking for good/working way to text from computer on: November 08, 2014, 03:49:59 AM
this is an interesting idea.. is there an android app that will monitor an email address and perform actions based on received emails?  if so you could set up something where you EMAILED a designated mail account of yours, and your phone would receive the email that would instruct it to send an sms with the specified contents..
55  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Larger Toolbar buttons and OCR ? on: November 08, 2014, 03:19:33 AM
I wonder, is it possible to adjust the right hand vertical toolbar?
Say, big buttons and with text ?

Not currently possible, though it has been requested before and is on my todo list.

Will there also be a text-capture (OCR like) in future?
i.e. a screenshot with text - the text is OCR'ed and then copy pasted into something else

Again not currently possible, though it has come up before.  You can easily add tools to SC menu to launch external processes, which should make it possible to use a 3rd-party OCR tool, but im not sure anyone has done this yet..

If I drag capture1 onto capture2 (as object) I can rotate capture1. The angle is fixed, 90 degr.
Is it possible to rotate it manually ?  If not, is it on the todo-list?

It's not currently possible.  My memory though is that this limitation is only because of the user interface not the internals.. so i could try to enable it if there is some need.

The first thing to check is if you have the Delay option engaged.  You can find that in the tray menu under "Capture Options..".

The second thing to check is if the delay only happens on the first capture in a long time.  That is, is the second capture fast if performed soon after the first one completes?

If you don't have the delay engaged and the second capture is fast, then the delay is due to Screenshot Captor being unloaded from memory by the operating system after a long period of disuse.  To combat this, you can go to the Startup Options for SC and choose the "Inactive Memory Use" option of "Stay in Memory Longer".

60  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Need a hand with a laptop issue. on: November 06, 2014, 08:03:43 PM
Shades guess is interesting.  Maybe a thing to do is keep it off mains, bring up Process List (ctrl+alt+del), sort by cpu use, and then when its running well, plug it into mains and see if any new processes start running or using cpu.
61  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: customizable gui for cmd apps on: November 06, 2014, 10:08:38 AM
Not at all -- in fact there are other free tools for doing what you are suggesting, which are more specifically focused on the task you are asking about -- I just can't remember them off-hand, so i hope others will chime in.

My Find and Run Robot program (FARR), which was suggested above, isn't quite meant for this purpose.  However my other program, Drag and Drop Robot, *was* made specifically to provide a simple GUI for executing commandline apps that you need to run in batch on a large number of target files.

Still, Drag and Drop Robot is not the ideal tool for creating custom GUIs for commandline tools as it doesn't have nice ways to set options, etc.

Again, I know there have been some attempts to make generic front ends for driving commandline tools -- I hope someone will post there experience with those here.

The item that caught my attention was the algorithm for splitting a payment among multiple participants in a project, by trying to find a fair way to divide it based on participants assessment of others.  The website offers little explanation for the algorithm, but does link to a published paper on the algorithm (written by people other than those who made the website).

Always great to see threads like this -- except to the extent that skwire makes the rest of us coders look like slackers.. undecided
65  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Can't Capture FTL Screenshot When Full Screen is On on: November 05, 2014, 09:59:32 AM
Is there no built-in screen capture function for FTL?
If you are doing something temporary that requires lots of screenshots from FTL, one thing you could try is to temporarily disable hardware acceleration for the monitor; that might enable you to capture screenshots from it using SC.  But you probably wouldn't want to leave that setting since it would negatively impact game performance.
66  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Can't Capture FTL Screenshot When Full Screen is On on: November 05, 2014, 09:57:50 AM
I'm afraid that the DirectX addon for Screenshot Captor has been abandoned for now as being too unstable.
67  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: View image without objects on: November 05, 2014, 07:06:21 AM
Neat idea.  I could add a feature for this quite easily -- perhaps I will.

However, you can achieve what you want in the current version of Screenshot Captor quite easily by creating a tool in a certain way.
Just create a tool (see bottom of Tools menu) that launches an image viewer (like IrfanView) and use the parameter "%tmpfileplain%" instead of the normal "%file%":

This tells Screenshot Captor to send a copy of the current image without objects to the specified program.

Screenshot Captor also does this when you configure an external Graphic Editor, in the options and hit the Graphic Editor toolbar button.  It does this so that you can make changes to the background image while preserving your objects.
68  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Can't Capture FTL Screenshot When Full Screen is On on: November 04, 2014, 08:29:29 PM
Is it because of the popup dialog box? I can't seem to deselect that (do I have to switch to admin account to do so?).
i don't think the popup dialog can be causing the problem, but you could try turning it off by telling SC to stay minimized after capture; that option can be found in the tray, in the options dialog, or in the postcap dialog itself.
doing that is worth a try if only to get a proper answer to the question of whether the full screen FTL disapears briefly during capture.
69  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Can't Capture FTL Screenshot When Full Screen is On on: November 04, 2014, 06:42:36 PM
Does the FTL screen disapear briefly during the capture -- or does it remain onscreen at all times during the capture?

And to confirm -- you tried CHECKING the the "Do not try to use the PrintWindow" option (bottom of Window Capturing 2 tab) and then used alt+PrtScr to capture the active window?

Do the dimmer tools get you the result you want aside from being sometimes buggy?

Welcome Emannresu  thumbs up

I think that blog essay deserves an extended excerpt:

"This post is going to be different. There are no visuals this time.

This is a good presentation of programming fonts http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/30040/Font-Survey-of-the-Best-Monospaced-Programming. However, to choose the best font for a particular use case quickly and efficiently, a different presentation approach is required. Since each letter is a picture, comparing even several fonts is the same as comparing thousands of tiny pictures. Yet, most, if not all, websites that try to solve the issue of finding the best programming font, use graphics…

A couple of days ago I spent some time struggling with the code that had “1” (“one”) instead of “l” (lowercase “ell”).  The common way to compare fonts is to look at the sequence “Illegal1 = O0″. However, comparison gets tricky when your IDE uses both regular and bold variants of the same font to display code. After some time, I came up with the following solution... Below is a table of mono-spaced fonts collected from numerous sources. I chose point sizes so letter sizes look similar.."


And the conclusion:

The Winner
In my particular case, “Dina” is the best.

Dina is, of course, created by long-time DonationCoder member Jibz, and can be found here: http://www.donationcoder.com/Software/Jibz/Dina
72  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Music Identification via Sound Card on: November 04, 2014, 02:50:14 PM
There are programs that can record audio from the sound card
It is my understanding this this can be extremely difficult, is dependent on vagaries of the sound card/driver, and may be close to impossible for many/most modern sound drivers.
It may have been easier with older versions of windows.
This may be your main obstacle.

This is also the thing that Wolfram Alpha can probably do, since it's based on a serious mathematical engine (Mathematica): http://www.wolframalpha.com/

For example I typed "volume of cylinder vs cuboid"

Result was an interactive page:

74  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: Screenshot Captor Pagination on: November 03, 2014, 12:20:43 PM
There is currently no way to ask SC to print a screenshot across on multiple pages, though i definitely understand the desire.
It's a feature I intend on adding soon, so stay tuned.
75  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Installation switches? on: November 02, 2014, 07:24:46 PM
I would think placing FARR on units in its probationary state would be good for your business, as well as for mine. But let me know if I'm not seeing that correctly.

Absolutely! I appreciate it.  Thmbsup

Ok, thanks. That's great. Did I miss this info in the Help file? I did try to locate it.

It's in my Screenshot Captor help file -- I need to add it to my others, thanks for the reminder.  thumbs up
