thanks gottadoit i will try to fix long filenames issue and clipboard issue.
so the clipboard issue shouldnt be from screenshot captor since screenshot captor doesn't grab clipboard info - is it from our other clipboard help+spell tool? OR maybe i think you are saying that the nature of capturing a screenshot makes clipmate get confused about the running app.. if so, could you elaborate what you would like clipmate to see when you capture a screen?
what i would like to do for autocapture is specify options like this:
 capture a screenshot every __ seconds
 capture a screenshot whenever screen changes
One the Clipmate side of things I would like it to see the real app (somewhat obviously...) the question was where is it getting its information from and how are you interacting with a printscreen operation so that clipmate doesn't see the correct application when it gets notified of something new in the clipboard. Its a little annoying but not such a big deal really, I can just start captor when I want it (using find&run) and the rest of the time allow clipmate to do its thing
In terms of the autocapture, it would be nice to also be able to capture "new" windows being created, and maybe when a window is refreshed (something along the lines of it getting a WM_PAINT or WM_NCPAINT message, seeing as from my limited understand of these things that happens on a new window and when a window has updates to display)
Given the overhead of monitoring (intercepting these messages) and checking to see if things had actually changed this sounds like something that would probably be noticable if it was left enabled... for that reason it might also be worth changing the tray icon to have a different colour screen during this type of capture
