hubi, I will look again at those this weekend; the refresh issue is particularly annoying even though i thought i got rid of it before.  one workaround for now is to try not to keep too many images in the top level screenshots folder at a time.  use the Moveto helper menu to help you organize your screenshots into subdirectories.

Ta for reply. Some feedback

1) It is still forgetting or losing on a regular basis the highlight setting (reverts to line thickness of 2 and the 'Inner Color' check box ticked) and the hiding of the "lower panel"

2) Ctrl/C seems to work

3) "Endless refresh" seems better in later releases though this is not consistent.

For 1) above is there an editable file we can change and or check for these settings ?

#1: let me see if i can't get that fixed in next release.
#3: i've actually been working on code to completely replace the thumbnail panel with something more efficient at showing large numbers of files, so rather than try to fix the issues with current display of large numbers of files, let's wait for that.

Update with some improved scanning/pdf features:

v2.75.01 - Oct 26th, 2009
  • [MinorFeature] PDF files are now saved with better compression.
  • [Feature] You can now ask SC to autosave scans as PDF files in a specific directory, and to auto-open if desired.
  • [Feature] New PDF save button on scanner toolbar saved current image to specific directory; can be used to save multiple images to one multi-page pdf.
  • [BugFix] Toolbar positions were sometimes not being remembered.

Hi mouser,
I can't run v2.75.01 on my machine.
I get this error:
Quote
ScreenshotCaptor.exe - Unable To Locate Component
This application has failed to start because STI.DLL was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.

My machine:  WinXP SP3, Core2Duo, 2GB RAM

Just a thought... does your app depend on Windows' default components?

If so, I may have removed too much from Windows using nLite:o

minor update but important bug fix:
v2.76.01 - Nov 15th, 2009
  • [BugFix] In latest version a bug was introduced where if you changed screenshot directories you couldnt load images from the new directory (it always reverted to the old directory).

I was having trouble updating from 2.75.02

DCupdater says said "get update failed" [read on]

so I went to
http://www.donationc...hotcaptor/index.html
& clicked on download link & Avira AntiVir Premium blocks it saying:

I added their explanatory link in there which is a lot of blah blah blah
Could it be possible that Avira was blocking dcUpdater from downloading it too? - yes, that was the problem!

Is it any help if I contact them or how does one prove it's not dubious?

Dont worry - I'll report it  ( http://forum.avira.c...oard&boardID=131 )

note:
when I downloaded the file & scanned it I got no warning - since that I can go to the webpage no problem.

So I think it's something in the webpage or url - I'll report it on the forum


EDIT/ done

Pretty minor update but some useful stuff:

v2.77.01 - Nov 29th, 2009
  • [MinorFeature] In addition to existing commandline options, you can now just pass filename or directory name on commandline to open that file or directory, which makes SC suitable for using as an "Open With" program (also unminimizes from tray when launched in this way, even if already running).
  • [MinorFeature] You can pass "-scan" commandline option to initiate a scan -- note that you can do this even if Screenshot Captor is already running -- it will trigger a scan in the existing running instance.
  • [Feature] When you rename a file using the "Name:" box, SC no longer forces a resave of the file, which could result in image degradation and an updated file date; it now does a pure file rename (object file as well) if nothing but filename has changed (and extension is unchanged of course).  If you change the file extension from the "Name:" box, a new file will be created.
  • [MinorFeature] Added bottom+right border effect
  • [Feature] You can now cancel an autoscroll capture by hitting the escape key.

thanks for the update mouser

btw I notice Avira corrected that false positive the following day (after I reported it)

This URL is indeed falsely classified as Malware. This has been corrected now and with one of the next VDF updates, the URL shouldn't be blocked anymore.

Latest version:
v2.78.01 - Dec 24th, 2009
  • [Feature] New option to auto-file older screenshots into a subdirectory based on date -- useful in keeping your workspace cleaner.
  • [Minor Feature] You can now use Ctrl+A in the thumbnail panel to select all files.
  • [BugFix] Fix for thumbnail creation flickering.
  • [Minor Feature] When capturing desktop and no active window is selected; instead of the file comments saying "explorer.exe" they say "Desktop"
  • [Minor Feature] Transparency tool setting was not being saved between runs.
  • [Minor Feature] Added list of capture types you can trigger from commandline.
  • [Minor Feature] Fixed the "-printnext" commandline option.

Note: The updater doesn't know about this yet, going to wait for some feedback first; you can force the updater to grab it by right clicking on the item and choosing "Install from the web..".

Thanks for new release. Comments

1) Not impressed that it automatically took all my existing files and placed them in subfolders without asking (hint, a prompt would have been nice). Resulted in a "WTF !" but was easy enough to work out and undo.

2) Flickering looks improved but not really sure if it is fixed (here is hoping).

3) Still have the problem where it sometimes forgets my settings for highlights (specifically 'Inner Color' off and 'Line width' = 3') plus the hiding the file comments area.

4) Have a new intermittent (but frequent) problem where the Screenshot captor appears in the task bar at system start. Have set to start when system starts. Please note this started with 2.77.01.

You're right -- the new autofiling option is on by default in the new version; at least on first use it should come up and tell user what's about to happen and give them option to disable.

This (and accompanying slow reloading of display with large #'s of screenshots) will be fixed when i finally integrate the new thumbnail panel code i've written.

3) Still have the problem where it sometimes forgets my settings for highlights (specifically 'Inner Color' off and 'Line width' = 3')

ok i'll look again -- i think i fixed the transparent value being forgotten.

that had me in a little panic for a while too I'll tell you (just got the update today)
I personally dont see any advantage to the new filing system - cant I sort by date if I want to ? although maybe not in SC itself? - I usually sort the folder by date (or name) in file manager

First thanks for such a great tool, been using it for more than a year now.
For me the biggest handicap continues to be the inability to capture scrolling windows properly. I've experience all of what has been mentioned here; screen flickering at a level where you panic and kill SC, to the latest "close but not enough". In fact yesterday was the first and only time I've got an actual screenshot of an scrolling window out of it, capturing this very same forum in Firefox. But as I said it has many flaws and it takes like 20 seconds of flickering and scrolling to come up with a picture. Check it out.

For me this is the only significant draw back compared to similar applications out there.

Is this issue in your road map of priorities mouser?

does this happen even if you start it manually after windows starts?

another thing you could do is:
1) try renaming the ScreenshotCaptor.ini file in your docs and settings Screenshot Captor directory, maybe it got corrupted?

Hi guys,
I'm very new to the screenshotcaptor program, but I love it already :D

Just wanted to say that you deliver excellent programs!

Ciao, Polka
