Feature request: Tray option to quick-change target directories
« on: November 19, 2010, 04:37:25 PM »
I keep ScreenshotCaptor opening all the time so it's ready anytime I want to snap the screen.

But I also often use ScreenshotCaptor for specific projects, and it's a pain to mix my project-specific screenshots into my "general screenshot dump directory".

Is there a way we could add a feature to Tray icon right click menu, that lets you point to the menu and the sub-menus are several Favorite Target Folders with a checkmark next to the current one?  And maybe an extra menu that says "Configure Favorite Targets" or something?

thats a nice idea.
let me ask.. i could do that.. or i could even have it so you could switch between completely separate full configuration sets; that would include changing the target directory but also other settings, like file naming properties, thumbnail settings; that might require the user to be a bit more advanced in order to set up the multiple settings though.

How about something similar to your 'Move To' on the toolbar except 'Save To'.  Where SC brings up a list of previous used locations to quick click and also has 'Save To...' to bring up a browse folders window to create a new folder?  Either for immediate use or the future.
Having the ability to select pre-defined quick preference/profile changes would also be nice.  Could they be two different quick select choices or buttons? This could give the best of both worlds. Use either or both.

i could just use the moveto list as the list to switch between screenshot saving directories from the tray -- that would be easiest and probably most common scenario.
