I seem to be the only one that sees this, so I presume it is something else on my computer that causes it, but I still cannot use Screenshot Captor to capture scrolling windows. Whenever I try I get a flashing affect that ultimately causes me to reboot my machine. The flashing is extreme and takes place withing the SC window, but even if I minimize SC, it has a negative affect on the entire computer operation.
Whenever I get brave enough to try this again - like after an upgrade of SC - the flashing occurs and I cannot shutdown SC; even with End Process in the Task Manager. I have managed once to open Process Explorer and kill the process, but something obviously keeps going somewhere in the background because the machine's performance is about shot until I reboot. Really weird!
I had a number of problems with the graphics card in this computer - an nVidia GeForce 7900 GTX (pretty high-end, actually) - so in the past I just chalked it up to the card. However several months ago I swapped out that card with a brand new nVidia GeForce 8800GS card - even higher end - and yet I still get all the same issues whenever I try to capture a scrolling window with Screenshot Captor.
So I obviously cannot blame the previous graphics card. Perhaps it is a conflict with nVidia GeForce cards in general, or maybe with Asus SLI-capable motherboards, AMD processors, or some other hardware I have in this box.
Anyway, I purchased the SnagIt 9 upgrade just to use for scrolling window captures, so it is not really hurting me in any way.
PS: A quick question about the location of Options or Preferences in various applications. A personal gripe I have always had with developers is that they can never seem to agree on where to put the Options or Preferences link in their program menus! I almost always have to search through the menus to find it - even in software I regularly use. Mainly because all seem to like hiding it somewhere different from the next developer. However your applications seem to suffer from the same problem!! E.g., Screenshot Captor options are labeled as "Preferences" and are located under the Edit menu. CH&S, on the other hand, calls them "Options" and locates them under the View menu. Dcupdater calls them "Preferences", like SC, but puts them under the View menu like CH&S. It is maddening at times! I didn't want to go through all my apps to find more examples, but I could - and I'd find even more names and places for program options!!
The most common seems to be Tools>Options. At least on the apps on my computer. But some are spread out all over the place. I know there is no specific guideline for placing such menu items in applications, but what criteria do you use? Why different in the various applications that you yourself have designed?
