More Autonaming tokens
« on: January 08, 2013, 09:59:52 AM »
Salvete!  Firstly, let me say that I absolutely love Screenshot Captor.  Since I started using it, I have no longer been interested in trying out other screenshot programs!

Now, for my request.  I would like to see some more autonaming tokens.

The one I would like at the moment is similar to %nicename% or %windowtitle% - but I would like some automated cleanup.
I am using some of the files in Sharepoint, and Sharepoint doesn't always like the file names.
I would like an option called %webname% or %cleanwindowtitle% where all the spaces and non-letter/number characters are removed or swapped for - or _ , and the words are CamelCased.

It might be better if, when you add a %webclean% token to the "Default New File Name" box, that the token tells SC to work the magic on your definition.  That is, you could put %windowtitle%_%datetime%%clean% and you would get a cleaned version of %windowtitle%_%datetime%  - so %clean% isn't acually a token, but a command to run on whatever text preceeds the command.

In this fashion you could have %swap[|-%%swap]|-%  which could swap all the [] for - characters in the string.

Some ideas here!

I like those ideas, especially the %clean% idea!  (Although my condolences for having to work in SharePoint! :P)

Ah, yes, SharePoint.  I sort of got drafted into that.  However, I am making the best of it!

Do you think you could give me a list of characters that need to be cleaned up?

Mouser - whew - I forgot all about this...  Give me a few days and I'll see what I can come up with.  I'll have to remember what I wanted to do.
