Captor 2.08.01 - early Test (! few pics ~500kB !)
« on: January 11, 2006, 04:04:48 AM »
Great Great Great  :Thmbsup:  :-*

Thank you very much for the new version.


A few quick early Scroll Test on Win2000 SP4:



- Lotus Notes   - OK

01LotusNotes2.jpgCaptor 2.08.01 - early Test (! few pics ~500kB !)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

- "QuickDic" Window w 1500 entrys - OK

02QuickDic.jpgCaptor 2.08.01 - early Test (! few pics ~500kB !)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

- InternetExplorer - OK

03Win Explorer.jpgCaptor 2.08.01 - early Test (! few pics ~500kB !)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

OK, silly test, but so i found an problem:
(the problem is not the missing token, but that SC hangs after  that/an  error)

- WinExplorer w 30.000 objects,
* Error message about missing token, (Taskmanager says SC has 46 MB RAM used)
* If i minimize SC, 44MB of the the 46 MB RAM is set free,
* SC is bussy=> Red tray icon, and SC is not usable.
* After an half an hour i terminate SC.
* 400 MB RAM is set free.

=> Hmmm,  any kind of "Process bar" planed?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

- WinExplorer w 280 objects - OK

05Explorer280.jpgCaptor 2.08.01 - early Test (! few pics ~500kB !)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Cancel with ESC is good too.
Fine drop down menu:  :Thmbsup:

06WinSnapshot-1.pngCaptor 2.08.01 - early Test (! few pics ~500kB !)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Some brain storming:

Highlight with red line is very good.
As an addition (don't know is this feasible) the non-highlighted region could be "dimmed"
to better see what region will be captured.
Or dim or darken the highlighted region.

Option
Don't stick the single shots together, but save them as single objects.
For paste the single shots into WORD later.

Feature
Infobox about single shots amount and size.

Scroll test:

- Opera 8.5 - OK works (~7 pages)

- Word 2000 - don't works, SC captured one side only (that one that is visible)

[Ed CarolHaynes ... neither does WordXP (visible region only)

WoW!

Regio mode is super!

Move and resize selection ! Fantastic.

And the background window is still accessable
- try to click into seletion and click to open an pull-down menu
- than trigger the shot with Strg+Click :-) superb !!!

i was thinking i might add some kind of advanced option for scrolling window capture, where it first analyzed the window then gave you a report about what it was about to do (and how big the result would be) and you could then cancel the capture or maybe adjust some settings..

SC 2.09.03


OK i know i make heavy Test ;-)

Just FYI:

An shot of a very long side

http://www.jokesandh...r.com/jokes/362.html
in GreenBrowser (IE Frontend)

takes 500MB and some minutes to finish.
(i have an five year old ATA system, but 768 MB RAM)

#########################

Just FYI
Iam offline with an PHP generated side in IE... and SC can't scrapture (scroll capture) the side.

OK, back online, SC can scrapture this side too :-D

wrt shift+rightcontrol, should already work,
just hold shift and press rightcontrol to trigger.

Really ?
Seams not to work for me.
("rightcontrol" is the right Ctrl-key ?)

Ctrl+RMB works for capture menu.
Ctrl+LMB works for to trigger the capture.
But not Shift+RightCtrl


#########################

Smt the ESC for to abort did not work,
and clicking on the capture menu have no effect.

I have to click around and press ESC often.

The very next time it works again as it should without problem.

#############################

- Iam playing around to capture an drop-down menu as object.
- One time i had success and captured an menu.
- The second time, SC brings an error message in the back ground "Error savin file *."- But the picture is already saved as i see in win explorer.
- Rename the picture give an new ØkB file with the new name.
- Bad too, that this error message apears in the back ground (not visible) only(or most).
- Try to close SC brings this message in the foreground.
- Too bad, i can't work anymore with SC, i have to kill it.

The third time i can capture menu as well again.

TIP: if you don't want highlighted menu items, just click on an separator line.
This didn't work with "Capture now" from capture menu, but with Ctrl+LMB

the menu sometimes doesnt escape properly if you confuse it by closing it by clicking something off the menu; try pushing the button on the caption if this happens.

as for an error about saving file... that should never happen :(
if you can figure out how to make it happen again let me know.
