The current download doesn't seem to be renamable to .zip...

...well, that's nonsense, actually. I can rename it to screenshotcaptor.zip all I like, I just can't open it and extract its contents.  ;)

there's two versions of it now, see the download page

Bugs ?
1) When you use the 'Splice out strip by defined selection [DELUXE]' (*) Undo doesn't work (at least for me). Seems to work everywhere else even with the new [DELUXE] ragged borders etc. so is this a bug ?

2) The bug I reported where objects get left where they were put when you remove a section by  'Splice out strip by defined selection' is still present. This is not a major bug as I said when I reported it you just have to remember to remove first and then apply objects otherwise you have grab and relocate all the objects.

(*) The ragged effect is very nice once you get used to how to drive it  :-*

I've tried it and undo is working without problems for me (Win7-64)
 Have you selected "Automatically apply shadow effect to image afterwards"?
 Then there are 3 undo-steps available.

2) The bug I reported where objects get left where they were put when you remove a section by  'Splice out strip by defined selection' is still present. This is not a major bug as I said when I reported it you just have to remember to remove first and then apply objects otherwise you have grab and relocate all the objects.
Confirmed!

Undo doesn't work on blur splice effect -- On my todo list to fix.  I'll check into object position adjustment during splicing.

The new Splice out strip defined by selection (DELUXE) feature is very slick (especially after a shadow is added).
Keep up the great work!

Minor bug? Text character truncation.
Sorry, I had noticed this last week, but forgot to mention it till I saw it again just now when I was using SSC again. (Brilliant new version, by the way.    :Thmbsup:)
Not sure if anyone else has already mentioned it.
Some of the characters in text boxes seem to get slightly truncated. In the example below, it seems to be the letters "w" at the ends of words with the string "...view".
It doesn't seem to be 100% consistent/repeatable - e.g., in an earlier view of this same text (which I did not capture an image of) the "v" in Preview" seemed to get slightly truncated, but I think the "w" looked OK.
Changing font size didn't seem to affect it.
Screenshot - 2012-02-12 18.14.24 truncated text in SSC text box.jpg

Text has always behaved a little "oddly" in ScreenshotCaptor, at least to me i.e.

a) It has always rendered as a little blury (even when Blend mode was normal)
b) The w and v don't lay out properly (kerning ?)
c) The font size seems odd Arial 16 was selected in both programs but display at radically different size.

e.g. compare two test samples from ScreenshotCaptor and Paint.Net
[attachtimg=1]

Nothing I can't live with  ;).

At first I didn't think of it but isn't this similar to the screenshot (cropped version attached) I took for my review? notice the S in the text box

Regarding the cut off W, I have two questions:

1. Does the W still appear cutoff when you LEAVE editing mode?
2. Do you have antialiasing disabled completely for objects (see object editing tab)?

What I'm getting at is -- is this bad text rendering only happening when text is in anti-aliasing mode.

I'm not sure if your problem and Ian's are the same; let's see what Ian says about his W.
You're problem is a little harder to identify.. Maybe you can make the text bigger and let's see how it looks when it is at 100% zoom and large text like 48-72point?

Here's another example. I've rescaled (enlarged) it to show the truncation of the "w"s. It's not as marked as my previous example (above). That's what I meant by not consistent/repeatable 100%.
Same as @hubri, I too have noticed the fuzziness of SSC images/text. so I tend to use "sharpen" on them to reduce the blur and improve clarity of the text.
These sorts of issues are relatively minor as far as I am concerned.
Regarding the cut off W, I have two questions:
1. Does the W still appear cutoff when you LEAVE editing mode?
2. Do you have antialiasing disabled completely for objects (see object editing tab)?
What I'm getting at is -- is this bad text rendering only happening when text is in anti-aliasing mode.

1. Yes.
2. Antialiasing on/off seems to make no difference to the truncation of the "w"s.

OK, this might be useful:
Take the string pattern "WHwh".
Starting with a font size 400, progress down in font size incrementally.
At some font sizes, there is no truncation.
At some font sizes, there is truncation of the "W" only.
At some font sizes, there is truncation of the "w" only.
At some font sizes, there is truncation of the "W" and the "w".
Doing this, it looks to me as though truncation might be occurring when the following "H" or "h" boundary moves over the preceding "W" or "w", respectively.
It's like the proportional spacing might be a bit out of whack at certain font sizes.

Bumped into another screen capture tool & while checking reviews saw a reference to scrolling captures in Screenshotcapto which I had never used. Quick view of the demo on this site (nice work) & it looked very slick. Tried it out on a web page & came away very very impressed  :D  :Thmbsup: ! Takes a few steps but then it has quite a bit to do.

Excellent bit of coding and I have a fairly regular need/use for it.

P.S. For me it does excellent work with Firefox (my main browser) and I have a heap of addons installed including "Yet Another Smooth Scrolling" which I though might give it trouble. In my quick testing it didn't work so well with IE.

Minor improvements:

v3.03.01 - Mar 20, 2012
  • [BugFix] Moving of screenshots into OLD folder based on dates was not using local time zone, so folder date labels could be off by a few hours.
  • [MinorFeature] New option to clear arrow endpoint text when new arrows are created.
  • [Feature] From File menu you can now save selected screenshots into one PDF; improve page sizing for PDF files.
  • [Feature] New function in File menu to delete all selected files.
  • [Feature] Added some system SendTo items to the SendTo folder.
  • [Feature] When sending email via MAPI you can now leave TO field blank (to be filled out in your email program).
  • [MinorChange] Added longer delay after capturing selected region image with cursor, in order to give time to move cursor to desired position.
  • [Feature] After you initiate an object capture, you can now hit the hotkey to trigger it again in order to indicate that the current region should be captured and saved, but object mode left open to capture another; useful for performing several repeat captures.
  • [Feature] New option to not show email info dialog when using MAPI.

New Progress and features!

Any chance the CrossHairs of Death can be (optionally?) removed on the next update?

With all these surveillance stories it's making me want to draw a graphic:
(Rectangular Box - In the middle is one word in huge font: "YOU". Elsewhere in the caption it says "Who is targetting you now?"

I do enjoy the crosshairs, though.  It's similar to how I set up my Autocad crosshairs.

it will be an option to go back to old smaller crosshairs; the new big ones will be default.
