The sub Groups: the clips in the sub groups are also in the parent group. I don't see why, I want the clips separate. I have sub groups under parent groups because they are related, but I don't want all the sub groups clips also duplicated in the parent group.



Oooh!  oooohh!
I can answer this!   :D

(after taking me 12 minutes to figure out how to get a go@%mn image loaded... :tellme:)

I recall being able to do this, so I dug around and found it fer ya'.

Thanks spamster for finding that option -- i forgot all about it. 
So Subsim, just uncheck that and that should put an end to parents showing children contents.

The title for that options page is misleading isn't it? Too easy to overlook it.

^^ Oops, sorry, I should've piped up about that too, as the ability to show recursive contents (inheritance) is something that I sometimes want and had always thought was a rather nifty feature in CHS (once I "discovered" it for myself).    :-[
In fact, I find CHS to be a seriously nifty tool - e.g., for manually categorising/tagging, auto-categorising and sifting of clips - but the directions for doing things like that can sometimes tend to be sparse or, at best, somewhat cryptic, leaving it up to the user to dig around and find out by trial-and-error. CHS is not all that "user-friendly" in that regard, so it is sometimes a case of "every man for himself".
One of the reasons I put so much effort into documenting that set of "requirements" was that I was trying to retrospectively deduce and document what and why existing features had been built-in to CHS, a bit like Sherlock Holmes.
@mouser - by the way, there is still this: User Requirements for CHS
It could be used to save repetition by different/new CHS users. I put quite a bit of effort into that. Have not updated it in ages as no-one seemed interested. I think I left it as public and editable.

You guys are awesome. Thank you for taking the time to help, I hope in some ways I am able to assist others like you have done.

I guess that really only leaves one issue that causes me trouble, the shifting when I cntrl+C

It does not happen in all groups, seems to occur in groups with a lot of clips.

Wish list: Add ability to take circular snapshots (you know, stuff outside the circle=transparent). I did a quick search and no other program can do that...
And yes, I know that it's not too difficult to edit a snapshot in gimp, painshopt or photoshop, but neither is taking a snapshot with printscreen and pasting it in there and then adding stuff, just not as straight forward as CHS.

chessnia, do you mean this to be a request for Screenshot Captor?
ps. in screenshot captor you can make a circular selection (from edit menu) and then CROP to that circle, which will make the background around circle transparent.
