So far I don't see a huge difference in Undo with the Beta, but my skills have improved.  The key seems to be "object select mode," which is a toggle.  When you're in select mode, you can select an arrow, circle, whatever, and kill it with the delete key.  I'm working on remembering to toggle out of select mode.

Thanks for responding, mouser.  I will try the beta.  Turns out my mouse problems had nothing to do with the captor.  When I switched from the optical mouse (which was behaving in some slightly different funny ways with some other software) to the corded mouse, the crop worked as expected.

General Software Discussion / forum password suggestion

The password has to have eight characters.  If I forget that, and type in my current favorite seven-digit password, it would be nice to get a message reminding me what the password rules for this forum are.

Also, new subscribers should be shown a suggestion to set a magic question.  I didn't find out about that feature until I was at the point of resetting my password.

Finally, please set "hide email address" as the default.

Running Captor 3.08.01.

I did crop and then tried to add an arrow.  It didn't come out right, so I did ctl z (undo).  The thing that got undone was the crop.  How do I undo the arrow?

Alternatively, how do I delete the arrow object?

Or, how do I discard all my changes?  (I don't mind re-cropping if I have to.)

I tried selecting the original file from the panel of thumbnails of screenshot files, over on the left, but that just opens the file with irfanview.

By the way, about the crop tool: First I selected the part of the image I wanted to keep, then hit the crop icon.  The crop occurred, but I got an error message telling me to select a region before cropping.  What bothers me most about that is the "bing" noise.  (For now, I muted my sound.)

Thank you!

Thanks, I look forward to that.  I chose ctl e carefully because it didn't interfere with anything else I was doing, and it was working great for me.  Thanks for responding!
