Re: LATEST VERSION INFO THREAD - ScreenshotCaptor -2.82.01 - June 1st, 2010

Can anybody replicate this?

I'm using Screenshot Captor v2.82.01 - June 1st, 2010 on Vista Home Premium with a user account, UAC On.  I've hit what seems to be a weird bug.  SSC locks up when I use Shift-PrtScr = Grab selected Region.  I make a screenshot, SSC makes its capture sound, and the New Screenshot window (at least I think that's its title - the buttons on the title bar obscure it) pops up.  At that point, SSC locks up and I have to forcibly terminate it.  I didn't try scrolling region or repeat last, but all the other methods seem OK.  This behaviour mostly happens if Shift-PrtScr is the FIRST capture.  That is, if I tried other methods first, it usually, but not always, works as expected; sometimes it locks up even if I have tried another capture method first.  I think Red Box mode may have a problem?  Something like this happened with the beta, but I think earlier versions were OK.


I'm experiencing a similar issue with v2.82.01 on Windows XP.  If I try a Ctrl+Shift+Print Screen and then use Ctrl+Click to capture, Screenshot Captor will lock up if I use the Pop Up Choice dialog.  I then have to Alt+Tab to the Pop Up Choice dialog and hit Esc to cancel.  If I use the Minimized mode it works fine.

Minor Update:

v2.83.02 - August 7th, 2010
  • [BugFix] Fixed exception error that could occur when capturing screens with near-fullscreen active windows (e.g. Windows Media Player), caused by strange active window region coordinates.
  • [Feature] SC Now warns you the first time it sees you are trying the auto-move-old-screenshots feature and tells you where to find the options for it.
  • [BugFix] Some of the copy path to clipboard options and actions were occasionally copying the PREVIOUS filename to the clipboard.
  • [BugFix] Active window capture on Windows 7 could crash occasionally(!)

Thanks for the update, mouser.

One thing:
I am a bit confused how to control what SSC copies to the clipboard. I found that the Shortcut CTRL+C works in a different way than using the menu item "Copy image/object to clipboard (CTRL+C)". Shouldn't they do the same?

Using the menu item created two kinds of bitmaps: "Device Independent Bitmap" and just "Bitmap" while CTRL+C creates just a "packet". To paste an image into e.g. an HTML mail I have to always use the menu.

And, additionally, it would be nice if we could set up, what and what not to copy to the clipboard. When both kinds of the above mentioned bitmaps are in the clipboard there's a default action when pasting and that's normally the Device Independent Bitmap, which resizes ugly in HTML mails or RTF pages. So there's always the need to first select which one to copy and choose just "Bitmap".

Another two additions:
• in the newest version the keyboard-shortcut seems to be completely without function.

• To use screenshots I made with Screenshot Captor I usually copy the screenshot to the clipboard, then paste it into Paint.NET (http://www.getpaint.net/). Then, in Paint.NET I again copy it into the clipboard and now I am able to paste it into every application that supports embedded images (like Office, RTF, HTML-Mails etc). I make the detour with Paint.NET because I found that this app reliably copies a format into the clipboard that seems to be widely compatible and doesn't resize the image in an ugly way when pasted. Maybe you could take a look what this app does and check against SSC.

Re: LATEST VERSION INFO THREAD - ScreenshotCaptor - 2.86.04 beta - Aug 28, 2010
« Reply #210 on: September 28, 2010, 07:09:10 PM »
How come nobody told me how badly SC handled network screenshot paths?
New beta version -- hopefully i haven't broken anything in the process:

v2.86.04 beta - September 28th, 2010
  • [MinorFeature] The active window filename fields that can be used in file naming or info templates now do not include the file extension (.exe)
  • [BugFix] Adding an image caption was not setting file dirty, and so not prompting you to save changes if you select a new image.
  • [MinorFeature] Trying to get SC to handle network paths (start with //) better for screenshot and moveto directories.
  • [MinorFeature] Tools directory is rescanned and tools refreshed after closing the Edit Tools dialog (saves you from having to exit program and restart).

See link to beta in first post.

v2.88.01 - October 8, 2010
  • [MinorFeature] Exe version info will now be synchronized with official program version info; should make it easier to use 3rd party update checkers.
  • [MinorFeature] The active window filename fields that can be used in file naming or info templates now do not include the file extension (.exe)
  • [BugFix] Adding an image caption was not setting file dirty, and so not prompting you to save changes if you select a new image.
  • [MinorFeature] Trying to get SC to handle network paths (start with //) better for screenshot and moveto directories.
  • [BugFix] Copying image with transparency to clipboard left big black areas where semi-transparency should be.
  • [MinorFeature] Tools directory is rescanned and tools refreshed after closing the Edit Tools dialog (saves you from having to exit program and restart).

I haven't tried this feature, but don't network paths (I am assuming UNC paths) start with \\ rather than //?

Small addition to the clipboard scaling problem (forgot to mention that):
When I take the route over Paint.NET to avoid unwanted scaling of pasted images, in SSC I choose "Edit" > "Copy Image/Object to clipboard", switch to Paint.NET and paste it there. It is pasted  as a selected object so I can directly choose "Crop" to set the image dimensions to the object dimensions. Then I hit CTRL-A to select the whole image and copy it to the clipboard. Then it is pasted with the right dimensions and without distortion.

So it seems in SSC would be an additional step required to make the object boundaries match the image boundaries to make all copied images paste without distortion. Some target applications seem to do that for themselves (like Photoshop) but when you test with Wordpad you can see what I mean.

Hi mouser,

on my first PC I couldn't reproduce this although I saw this for years.
But on my second PC the effect still exists.

I made a video so that you can see what I mean:
1. I am creating a screenshot, SCC copies it to the clipboard automatically
2. Paste it in WordPad --> ugly resized
3. Paste it in Paint.NET, crop it there and copy it to the clipboard
4. Paste it in WordPad --> correctly resized

I did some more testing of my "pasted images are too big" -- at fault were the default zoom of Word / Outlook. Once I reset them all to 100 the images displayed correctly.

FWIW I also munged the DPI settings in SC editor, and the resulting "pasted" images displayed appropriately (e.g. 96 default, 80 DPI was big, 120 DPI smaller), so the DPI settings are migrating through the clipboard correctly also.

Brilliant find, when I recorded the video that setting was on 72 dpi.
A 96 dpi setting seems to do the trick   :up:

Thanks!

Hi all, Does the below '' BUG "" also happened to you ?

A normal screen capture I want to make,
I right lick the TV icon, select grab select region. Then PROBLEM START....
the monitor suddenly enlarged itself !!! ( I am now trying to attach the pic here)
the area I supposed to capture of course if way out of the foucus.

Is there anything I should set correctly or it is still a kind of bug behavior against the latest version 2.88 with Window 7 64bit ?

Thanks all.

No idea about that specific problem but I am running SCC 2.88.01 on Win7 x64 without any issues.

hi emcemc, that is very strange!

Does it happen when you do other types of capture?
Does it happen if you use the shift+PrtScr keyboard shortcut to start a region capture?

ps. i will probably split this thread off into a separate topic, so look for it in Screenshot Captor section.
