Only show Images thumbnails NOT Video Files
« on: December 01, 2013, 10:44:32 AM »
How do I set my preferences so that Screen Captor ignores video files and only deals with image files.

The thumbnails of video files gets in the way. Also if video file thumbnail is selected (by default) windows gives me tough time when i try to move that file to a different location.

I never use this program for video files as I'm not aware of any function for them.

How may I disable screencaptor from recognizing/dealing/displaying video files?

Thanks.

Thanks for mentioning this -- let me quick add an option to ignore video files and put it in the current beta release.

downloaded and installed ScreenshotCaptorSetup - 4.7.5 BETA (just ran it straight, no uninstalling of previous versions, also preserved previous preferences), also 4.7.6 on different computer

MKV, flv doesn't appear as thumbnails (this was also true for v3.08.01, so no change)

- MP4 and AVI's appears as thumbnails which was impetus for why i started this thread.

- I also noticed that PDF files appear as thumbnails even though the scrncaptor interface cannot edit it

You need to go uncheck the option to display movie files on the Save/Load tab.

ahh yes, I came back to modify my post but you replied before I had a chance. I just noticed the checkbox you're referring to and it works great. It would be nice if there was an option to turn off PDF's but now that I think about it, it makes sense to have pdf's appear since Screenshot Captor has the ability convert images --> pdf. Still, it'd be nice if there was an option to hide pdf for those of us who don't use the feature.

Anyway, thanks for adding the video hide feature! I appreciate it.

p.s. It's weird, this thread is not listed when I try to navigate here manually. Isn't it supposed to be here?
