taking screenshot WITHOUT saving to file
« on: June 27, 2013, 04:22:54 AM »
Hello users,

I had to register to the forum to ask for yyour help.
Quite often I use Screenshot Captor to capture fixed areas of my screen and use them in e-mails or presentations.

To be honest I find the program preferences window way too complicated now.

What I need is:
 - screenshot to be sent to Windows clipboard
 - screenshot should NOT be saved to a file

Thanks in advance
sith

P.S.
I searched my ScreenshotCaptor.ini but still did not find the right setting.

The latest beta gives a couple of options that would make copying to clipboard easier (using the post-capture dialogue).

Can you try the new beta i've uploaded just now (download link on this thread).

And try these new options: (see attachment in previous post)


You're probably aware of this one: I dont use it myself but IIUC the screenshot can be automatically saved to clipboard -
Post-capture options: Copy to Clipboard: [Image Bitmap]
-
there is the option to copy file there as well - I'm not sure what exactly the difference, possibly no file is saved when using image bitmap (?)

Hi tomos,

thanks for your help.
Indeed, I am using the most recent beta release, as previous versions stopped working with an error message for me.

I have already set the post capture behaviour to "copy to clipboard: image bitmap".
What I want to avoid is that every time an image file gets dumped into the screenshot folder.

If nothing else, you could go into the Post-Capture Options and use the Post Capture Commandline Tools to Run section to invoke a command to delete the screenshot file ("del %file%" assuming that quotes are included if needed).

If it's not possible to not save, please consider supporting this functionality :)

@ ewemoa

It was definitely possible to just take a screenshot without saving it to a file in the previous versions.
Let me share my old ini file, maybe one of you can figure out which settings to use.

Re: taking screenshot WITHOUT saving to file

I didn't succeed in discovering anything useful from what was pasted.

With a default installation of the latest beta (portable version anyway), after a capture I get a dialog box with the title "Screenshot Captor - New Screenshot".

There is a section named "Operations" and one of the drop-downs contained therein is named "To clipboard:".

One of the choices within the drop-down is labeled "To clipboard: Image".  I chose that option and heard a sound.  Pasting to the Paint application showed that a capture had occured.

Subsequently, I searched a number of folders via SSC's main window but didn't manage to find any saved file of what had been captured.

May be it is supported out-of-the-box then?

I'm looking for this feature too. I have no need for saved files - I use them directly from the clipboard. I can find no way to turn off the saving of files.

you can turn on this option under "Misc. Tweaks" (see image below for reference).

Thanks, lanux128

That was exactly what I was looking for and didn't recognize it when I looked through the options.

An alternative strategy can be used for those who don't want lots of images being stored.

An alternative is to modify your settings so SC always saves the LAST capture, but overwrites previous ones.  That will give you only ever one single screenshot file.

You can do that by going to the File Naming Template options tab, changing the filename to something static, instead of something made with the date.  For example: MyLastScreenshot
And then UNCHECK the box under that that says to Auto Sequence New File Names.

Thanks, mouser,

That would also work for me.

Does anyone know of a means of disabling the creation of the
C:\Users\USERNAME\Documents\DonationCoder\ScreenshotCaptor directory?

And the My Favorites storage folder creation?

Perhaps have the install routine ask if the user wants the ini file saved in the user folder or the program folder, similar to the way IrfanView works?

I don't save Screenshots, but when I do, rarely, I normally save them to the place they need to be and not to some catch-all storage dump.

At the very least, allow the user to delete the folder names from the settings and delete the previously created folders, AND stop SC from recreating them?

You can change where the ini is stored by edited the ConfigDir.ini file.

You have to set a screenshot folder somewhere -- but once you change its location, it shouldn't recreate the "C:\Users\USERNAME\Documents\DonationCoder\ScreenshotCaptor" one.

Thanks; I appreciate the tip.

I do have one question, though.  You said "You have to set a screenshot folder somewhere . . .".

Why?

If the user does not want or need to store images in a pre-defined directory, why is this a "requirement"?

Is there some part of the underlying programming I'm missing that makes this so?

Yes, SC expects that there will be a folder available for storing and viewing screenshots -- that's just how it works -- it's always monitoring a current screenshot folder and displaying a list of the images in that folder.  While it does have options to tell it not to save images -- it really wasn't meant to work that way -- and i always encourage people to give in to letting SC at least save a single file (the last capture).
