Thanks for your detailed point of view. I'm not sure I get it completely, though. I understand your "philosophical" argument about the changing OS aesthetics. However, it seems to me that's a separate issue from the one I raised, which is much more basic.
To put things bluntly, as they appear on my screen, SC
(Screenshot Captor) and CHS
(Clipboard Help & Spell) are downright unusable. Windows 7 GUI is perfectly all right for me, and the combination of OS + OS settings works perfectly for me with practically all software I come across.
I recently checked on an old piece of software I used to like very much, it's a project manager called Twiddlebit Plan
, which was created for... Psion PDAs, and Nokia phones with a screen, before smartphones were invented. It also had a Windows version. Now that was perfectly usable with Windows ME, and whatever low-res CRT I had at the time, but with modern resolutions, some parts of the UI are too small to read by now (although not all of them).
But this is legacy software. It can't be expected to work nowadays. SC
So I'm curious to know : do all other users see SC
's main window the way I see it ? (Attachment in my former post.) Do they see, as I do, a regular-sized menu line, with File, Edit, Capture, Scan...
and below, two checkboxes marked Thumbnail Panel
in a much, much smaller font ?
And if yes, is that the expected behaviour of the software, or is it me, i.e. I need to change something in my Windows 7 settings, for instance ?
The File, Edit, Capture
... line is perfectly OK. The Thumbnail Panel
line (again, as they appear on my screen) kills the software for me.
And I would love to find a workaround, because I was desperate to find something like SC
, the guys at Daves Computer Tips
pointed it to me, and I can't believe what it can do
! It seems too good to be true !
