Idea for text tool: expand %placeholders%
« on: September 01, 2005, 06:42:20 AM »
i had just an idea for your new "insert text tool":

would it be possible to insert %placeholders% wich will be expanded ?

e.g.
- i will insert text in my snapshot and wrote %windowtitle% , wich should be expanded like in the comment field
- so i get an text stamp into my snapshot like "Start new topic - Mikisoft Internet Explorer"


-- and / or
read the stored comments from the picture , select and insert one or more as text stamp

e.g.
wrote into the text input field (is there any ?) and maybe modify it:
%windowtitle%
%filename%
v7.00.1
Test # 03 from: %datetime%

read from comment in picture
and expand and stamp as text:
Post reply - Microsoft Internet Explorer
IEXPLORE.EXE v7.00.1
Test # 03 from: 31/08/2005 , 16:56:46

not to hard to write - main thing as usual is how to let user specify what to do.

i think i have an idea that will work i will try to implement it.
