I've uploaded a new version with some more elaborate functionality when you press the "TEST WINDOW" before beginning a scrolling capture.  That button will engage a process that will try to guess the best settings to capture the window.

Essentially it tries to figure out the optimal way to do a LINE-based scroll (as opposed to a page-based scroll) which can be more reliably overlapped (since page-based scrolling sometimes yields 0 overlap between pages).

Attached are some samples made using "Test window..." -- thanks for this thumbs up

First one made with FF 9.0.1, and the other Chrome 14.0.x -- with some splicing action too smiley

Essentially it tries to figure out the optimal way to do a LINE-based scroll (as opposed to a page-based scroll) which can be more reliably overlapped (since page-based scrolling sometimes yields 0 overlap between pages).
Just tried this updated version on Visual Studio again, and the all new and improved "Super Scrolling Capture" is finally beginning to make sense on VS2010. smiley

Did the AutoDetect for the best capture method (the texts after testing mentions a Re-Test button I couldn't find when focus wasn't inside the main code area) and it suggested to also horizontally scroll.

After making such capture it shows that that's not a good idea, as VS adds too much extras in the left margin:
and because of my plugins, on the right margin:

The left margin stuff is also on the second column of captures, so an overlap-merge isn't going to work here anyway, and the right-margin I also want to keep, so either I have to scale down the view, or format my code into a single-column view tellme
The Guess Overlaps does work quite correct to all pages except for the End Overlap, this way.

This time (compared to my previous attempt, 2 days ago) I got a perfect capture, though I had to tweak the margins a bit after having them guessed by SSC, and it couldn't guess the overlap (no horizontal scroll, gave a messagebox telling me so), so I did that by hand.

I'm getting happier with every update Thmbsup Kiss

Glad to hear it's getting there.. I'm reaching the point of diminishing returns in terms of improving auto-guessing of stuff -- so I don't think it's going to be getting *too* much better.  The one thing I may do is add disk caching for the multiple images, which would make it possible to capture larger scrolled regions that exceed memory requirements.

Hey, I missed this thread altogether. As you know, mouser, I have never been able to get a scrolling capture with Screenshot Captor, and that has stayed the same through three different Windows computers! I've posted several times about it and at first you replied as if most had no problems and it must be my system. Finally enough other people chimed in and you said you would be working on it. Apparently you have here but I didn't notice it.

Soooo.. where are we? I have downloaded and installed all updates/upgrades to SSC but I don’t see any settings screens like those posted in this thread. Is this a separate program? An add-on to SSC? Youi have kept this way, way under the table though I'm not certain why. How the heck do I get scrolling captures now with SSC?

Thanks!

via tray icon context menu, or use shortcut (shown there as well)**
Same as before actually smiley

I'd recommend looking at the video thread Screenshot Captor 3 - Window Object and Scrolling Capture Screencast Videos

Take a look at this post I just made - it may be of some general use to you:
Keeping track of what you want to know about

Never miss a useful DCF post again!    smiley
