[Feature Request] Toggle Delay On and Off Hotkey
« on: November 24, 2011, 07:00:00 PM »
Hi all,
I am a (very) new user to Screenshot Captor, and I am quite impressed by everything so far. One thought/annoyance I have found so far, is that there is no hotkey to toggle the delay mode (unless I have not seen it, in which case please tell me where to find that option).

Anyone agree?

There is no hotkey for it, BUT you can toggle it from the system tray.

Yes, I saw that, but that requires extra clicks (especially when it is hidden, as happens in Windows 7). When you are doing a set of screenshots for documentation purposes, it helps if you don't have to stop what you are doing to turn off and on delay.

Love the program though.

seems like a reasonable idea.. so maybe the hotkey would toggle on delay and start capturing, or toggle it off if on?

I was thinking just toggle it on and off.

Some sort of status indication would be good too. So when you toggle it on it would pop up with balloon text saying something like. "Timer Delay is now on. Delay is set to x"

What do you think?

thats a good idea -- and i was thinking earlier to change the icon when in delay capture mode.

Changing the icon is a good idea, but if it hidden (as is the default in Windows 7), you won't see it.
