> · [new feature] flip horiz/vert buttons for clipart objects. 
> · [new feature] repeat capture hotkey/function for same region as last capture 
> · [new feature] cursor keys can be used to "nudge" selected objects 
> · [new feature] cursor keys can move the current selection mask (hold shift to expand) 
> · [new feature] object selection tool changes picture when there are objects available to manipulate.. 
> · [new feature] deletion of screenshot files now sends them to recycle bin. 

very fine, thank you  :D

 · [new feature] added "expand canvas to fit objects" menu item (in objects menu). 
fantastic  :Thmbsup:
 
> · [new feature] save current selection to new file (Ctrl+N). 
- Edit | Unselect --- is Ctrl+N too and didn't works anymore --could be Ctrl+U (but Ctrl+U is for un-group objects)

thanks for the shortcut report stefan, i took your advice (mostly) and made ctrl+U be unselect, and ctrl+alt+S shortcut for save new version, shift+alt+S for save region.

Hi mouser,

a very good thing to switch antialiasing off! Thanks, that solves the problem with blured text.

ctrl+e, save copy as: Once you have saved a file as .GIF (or in any format other than PNG) and want to save a second copy in a different format, SC reverts the filename to <whatever>.PNG but remembers the previously seleted file format in the second drop down box. If you change the file extension to .jpg, SC saves the file as jpeg and does not honour the file type box.

I think you should synchronise the filename and filetype boxes when displaying this dialog. They should point to the same type (e.g. jpg) to avoid confusion.

And I think SC should use the file format referenced in the file type drop down and change or add the file extension accordingly. (And not use the typed extension and ignore the file type drop down...)

(Not sure whether it's clear what I mean ... ;) )

Wow. Incredibly fast! :-)

Well, it's much better now!

But if I manually change the file extension to any non graphics related one, SC adds the extension that belongs to the file type in the drop down box. e.g. the prefilled file name is "captortest.jpg" and I remove the "jpg" part and replace it by "hhh", the resulting file name is "captortest.hhh.jpg". = Correct!

But now, if I replace "jpg" by "gif", SC creates a GIF file "captortest.gif", even if the file type points to JPG - that is intelligent, but either it should also change the drop down file type to GIF, so it is selected the next time I want to save a file, or it should not translate the extension to a format but use the selected format in the drop down instead (and add the correct extension if none or a wrong one is given). We can discuss if a wrong extension should be replaced or not - sometimes it makes sense NOT to replace it. e.g. if I want to create a GIF file named "giftest.bmp" to test the capabilites of my image reader :-)

Ah yes, i missed "Save as..." in the File menu.
So i overseen that therefor my suggested shortcut "ctrl+shift+S" should be for.

ah, i see the confusion.

ok you can't drag objects out of the main window into other places.

but you can drag from clipart panel into main window or into your thumnail window or out of the program.
and you can drag screenshots from your thumbnail window into the clipart panel.

sorry for the confusion.

ps. if you an had an area on your image that you wanted to put into clipart you would select it, use "save region to file" and then drag that new region image into clipart panel.

I'd love to be able to change the standard shortcuts or disable them, so I could avoid problems with global hotkeys from other programs (Winamp, AutoHotkey, Locate, ...)

Locate does it like this:
