Larger Toolbar buttons and OCR ?
« on: October 20, 2014, 09:46:00 AM »
Just downloaded the latest portable version. I admit: I have not used Screenshot Captor.
So 100% as far as SC is concerned.
Created first capture.

I wonder, is it possible to adjust the right hand vertical toolbar?
Say, big buttons and with text ?
Vainly checked out options->advanced tweaking->more interface options, but maybe I should look elsewhere?
Or maybe it isn't possible at all?

Will there also be a text-capture (OCR like) in future?
i.e. a screenshot with text - the text is OCR'ed and then copy pasted into something else.

If I drag capture1 onto capture2 (as object) I can rotate capture1. The angle is fixed, 90 degr.
Is it possible to rotate it manually ?  If not, is it on the todo-list?

thanks

Not currently possible, though it has been requested before and is on my todo list.

Again not currently possible, though it has come up before.  You can easily add tools to SC menu to launch external processes, which should make it possible to use a 3rd-party OCR tool, but im not sure anyone has done this yet..

It's not currently possible.  My memory though is that this limitation is only because of the user interface not the internals.. so i could try to enable it if there is some need.

ABBYY Screenshot Reader can do this (though I haven't tried integrating it into SC).

I agree with request: ScreenshotCaptor is VERY powerful with many options, but graphic interface limits usability (small icons, similar if not the same icon for different functions, some not very clear: e.g. merge icons, selection mode...).

I know it's very difficult to change from old "Borland" style, but would be very useful an external icons definitions to be able to use iconpack made by others (there so many good graphic designer on the net...).

With the trending higher resolution of today's monitors, I may indeed have to add support for larger icons to SC soon..
