Nope it's a different one.

Yikes! That's the first I've heard of that.
I have a couple of questions:
  • Is the problem reliably reproducible? (you may have to restart program to reproduce it)
  • If you left click and hold the mouse and drag, same problem?
  • Does it capture non-select-region type screenshots ok?
  • If it doesn't happen on every capture, can you identify any factors that might be unusual when you get the error?

Please please please someone with artistic abilities make a custom mug design.

You know.. we do have an unreleased amazing image created by DC member App103, that we were/are going to use for a Coding Snacks tshirt, that could be repurposed..

Well you're point is valid too -- it's the other side of the coin.
80  DonationCoder.com Software / N.A.N.Y. 2015 / Re: NANY Q&A about what software can be submitted on: October 08, 2014, 02:04:46 PM
I guess I just feel that maybe NANY should be a celebration of software released in the last 12 months.  That way we aren't PENALIZING people for releasing stuff a few months early..
Imagine person #A releases a new cool program every month.  Person #B writes a program in february but doesn't release it until December.
By our rules, person #B qualifies for NANY but person #A doesn't, and person #A's programs are disqualified from any NANY.
I don't like that.

I've thought for a while that NANY should be a celebration of apps released in the past year.. Or at least indie releases that haven't gotten much public attention..
81  DonationCoder.com Software / N.A.N.Y. 2015 / Re: NANY Q&A about what software can be submitted on: October 08, 2014, 01:51:56 PM
Easy question to answer:

Any software that has not yet been released publicly can be entered into NANY.
Yes you should start a new thread in this NANY 2015 section for the app.


A more difficult question concerns software that was released in 2014.  I am of the mind that we should include any software first publicly released in 2014, rather than restricting NANY to only things that have been written in last few months.

Nice.

Anyone here doing NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month)?  I know a couple of DC folks have in the past.

I should come clean.  There was a problem introduced by latest smf forum update a few days ago; i just fixed it 5 minutes ago and was teasing you guys Thmbsup
So it should be working now.

How about taking the notion of "printing" more loosely as 'arranging cards on a sheet' (for various sizes of actual/virtual paper, e.g. from A4 to A2, for those with bigger monitors)?

yeah, i would make it work with any kind of card layout and paper size, that's not a problem.

it does raise the interesting issue of stuff not fitting on a card though.. interesting dilemma.

Lots of great comments here so far -- you guys no more about this type of software than I do and have more experience with these kinds of tools, so I need your assistance.
Some quick thoughts:

I do *not* want to try to reproduce the functionality of the best-in-glass general purpose tools.  They are too good at what they do for me to think I can do better.

I'm much more interested in creating something unique, experimental, opinionated, and focused on doing things fundamentally different than the existing tools.

So, one possible angle to this is to make a tool that is really more about PRINTING cards (or sheets) from your item entries, rather than a tool meant to let you do lots of virtual work on screen.. A tool designed to help you manage and print physical cards (or todo lists) for physical use.

That's just one angle -- I'm open to going in a different direction.

Yes, so far I've only noticed shotcut-icons missing.

ok that's a big clue -- it's enough to let me at least go looking at what it could be.  hopefully you will be willing to try some beta versions of farr to see if i can figure it out.
88  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Screenshot Captor 4.10 todo list on: October 08, 2014, 10:05:58 AM
On my todo list for next update is:

  • Allow user to save + load object editing tools settings (arrow sizes, fonts, etc.)
  • Allow user to configure how Ctrl+C (copy) behaves; right now it is context sensitive (in object editing mode if you have an object selected it will copy the object only); some people would prefer Ctrl+C always copy the full flattened image bitmap.
  • Possibly some kind of ruler or measurement thing

I'm happy to hear suggestions, alternatives, etc.

I am always fascinated by new productivity utilities and ideas, and I'd like to create another one for this year's NANY 2015.

I was actually thinking of making a kind of lean and mean utility Digital Index Card Notes system, that would compliment the index-card system I have been using to keep track of todo items and ideas for many years now.
You can read about my real-world non-digital index card system here, and a brief old discussion of some ideas for a digital version here.

My current best idea is not to try to replicate visually the idea of physical index cards that you can shuffle around on screen, but rather to provide a database-driven system for creating "virtual" cards (i.e. small entries with title and text), with some keywords/group identification, with good fast search/sort/filtering, and then provide functionality for PRINTING such cards on index-card stock.

So it wouldn't be a replacement for having a physical collection of index cards, but a supplemental tool to help you create, print, and search them.

Alternatively, one could imagine the utility as a more general purpose tool for maintaining a lean and mean database of entries that you want to print out on card stock (of whatever size); so think flash cards, etc.



Just my current idea, can't guarantee it will be the one i finally end up with.

Another related alternative would be not to print the entries on index card stock, but perhaps to assist in printing a daily TODO list from selected entries, or something similar.

Thanks.
For those who don't know what Tomos is referring to: In previous versions of SC, to do a selected region capture, you moved the cursor to the upper left, then left-clicked, and HELD DOWN the left mouse and dragged to the lower right and released.  In the new version you can still do that, but you can also just use a single left-click and release to mark the two corners.  Escape will cancel in either case.

works fine here -- i wonder if you dont have some other tool that has assigned alt+w and is catching it..

Other things we could use to make this year's event special:

We have a standard mug design we tend to use, but it's always great if we can get an optional alternative design or two.   If you have artistic talents, we'd love to have some more mug designs that look different.  The resolution should be 1662x600.


Here's the standard design to show you the size and basic information on the mugs:

Some alternatives:
[attach=2]
[attach=3]

Ideally, any mug design should have a prominent role for Cody, our bird/duck mascot.

Things you can/should post in the NANY 2015 section of the forum (start new threads please):

  • A pledge post, in it's own thread, to say you will be participating, and what program idea you might try to code.
  • Ideas for programs that you'd like to see someone else try to code.  Non-coders we need your ideas!
  • Early releases of your software for others to test.

Since 2007 we have held an annual event that we call NANY (New Apps for the New Year), where we ask the coders who hang out on DonationCoder to create some new piece of free software and share it with the world on January 1st of the new year (browse previous year entries here).

There are no winners or losers, it's simply a celebration of programming and creating new software and sharing it with the world.  You can target any operating system (desktop or mobile) or even make a web-based tool.  It can be a game, utility, large application, whatever.

[attach=1]
Best of all, everyone who participates gets a free commemorative coffee mug.

NANY is really the funnest thing we do on this site, and it's one of the few times we can all play together.  If you're a coder, PLEASE participate! If you're not a coder, please cheer on the coders and help encourage them and give them ideas and cheer them on. Let the coding begin!

Just saw "The Signal".
I thought it was beautiful and great, assuming you don't go into it expecting much.  I suggest watching it without reading anything about it.
