Not that I still have a computer running Win7 any more :D

TapTap / Re: CTRL-C shortcut not recognized in Win7-Explorer
« on: September 07, 2016, 05:14 AM »
@IanB: Ooooh. That's a nice and clean solution. Alas, I'd really like a Double-Tap-thing like it was in TapTap ('cos RCtrl+m and even worse RCtrl+n are still quite awkward key-combos to use), so I tried to do it with RapidHotKey. Which kinda works although it's quite an ugly script...

TapTap / Re: CTRL-C shortcut not recognized in Win7-Explorer
« on: September 06, 2016, 04:48 AM »
OKAY! I finally found some time and solved my problem. (No, I haven't. See update).

As IanB suggested I used AutoHotKey, created a script, compiled it et voilĂ ... it works. Better than ever ;)

If anyone's interested, here's the AHK code:

Code: Autohotkey [Select]
  1. ; AHK Script to redirect Double-Shift to Ctrl+C and Double-Ctrl to Ctrl+V
  2. ; Idea came from this Reddit:
  3. ; done by daMax (//
  5. Shift::
  6.  if (A_PriorHotkey = "Shift" AND A_TimeSincePriorHotkey < 250)
  7.  {
  8.     ; MsgBox double-click Shift.
  9.     Send, ^c
  10.   }
  11.   else
  12.   {
  13.   ; no double-click. just wait for the key to be released and move on with your life
  14.   KeyWait, Shift
  15.   return
  16. }
  18.  if (A_PriorHotkey = "Control" AND A_TimeSincePriorHotkey < 250)
  19.  {
  20.     ;MsgBox double-click Control.
  21.     Send, ^v
  22.   }
  23.   else
  24.   {
  25.   ; no double-click. just wait for the key to be released and move on with your life
  26.   return
  27. }

This now seems to work in Windows Explorer, Notepad, Firefox etc.

I uploaded the finished EXE to my blog:

You can also find the script there: http://blog.todamax....9/daMaxCopyPaste.ahk

Update: aahrg! It's no good :( now the Shift-Key doesn't work "on its own" anymore, so I cannot Shift keys at all. FAIL :(

Yeah, I guess I am the last user, but it's really a great tool for lefties like me.  :Thmbsup:

If you would make a 64bit build, I'd gladly test it.

I have zero experience with C++ (I'm a Managed Code N00b), so I will probably not be of much help, but I would give it a try anyways. With a Visual Studio project, even I should be able to set a breakpoint or something ;) I have no clue as how to detect a non-detected double-key-press but still I'd give it a try.

You got my mail address so if it's a small project just throw it over the fence or send me a link where to get it.

« on: July 27, 2016, 01:27 AM »
Hm... Mouser? Are you still alive? In which language is TapTap written? Would it be possible to port this to .NET? I would gladly take a look at it...

TapTap / Re: CTRL-C shortcut not recognized in Win7-Explorer
« on: June 17, 2016, 03:04 AM »
Oh dear. Is the latest version of TapTap really already 10 years old? My-oh-my, how time flies... I still use TapTap daily and extensively, so I am very sad to witness its steady decline. Just lately, TapTap stopped working in Firefox 46 and Chromium on my Windows7 64-bit machine.

I still use

// double right control to Control+V
keymap   DRC      :   C+V

// double right shift to Control+C
keymap   DRS      :   C+C

which works fine in most applications, but now it seems that I have to add Firefox and Chromium to the list of non-working apps, which is a pity because I spend a lot of time in the browser blogging, copy/pasting code etc.

Could it be that TapTap does not work well with 64-bit applications? This would be my guess by observing what happens here...

« on: October 23, 2015, 06:10 AM »
I believe this is to do with the system font size -- I suspect yours might be @ 150% (?)
With system font size here @ 125%, it looks like this (better than yours but still cropped in places):

Nope, I am on 100% font size

The Edit / Resize Image (or canvas) dialog looks quite weird in Windows 7. Especially since the "Add a uniform border of size" textbox is completely out of sight...


I am using Windows 7 Pro, 64 Bit and Screenshot Captor 4.13.0

Hello again,

as the problem still exists and I still love TapTap so much  :-*, I wanted to ask if there is any chance that you might take a look at this? Does this even occur on your Windows7 or am I the only one?

Screenshot Captor / SUGGESTION: Pixelate in Toolbar
« on: October 14, 2014, 01:32 AM »
I just downloaded the latest version of SC and it seems to be getting better and better  :-*. I especially like the (new?) "pixelate inside selection" command in SpecialFX1. Would it be possible to add this to the available toolbar buttons in Options->Advanced Tweaking -> More Interface Options? And while you're at it, you could do the same for "Splice out strip defined by selection - Deluxe effects".

That'd be great.

Since a few versions the thumbnail-pane seems not to scroll down automatically anymore. This is a minor annoyance as the thumbnails are sorted "latest at the bottom" (which is not changeable to "latest at top" by the way) and so I always have to scroll down manually to see the latest screenshots.

Am I the only person experiencing this?

Is the problem just under Windows 7 FILE EXPLORER? TapTap works fine in other windows 7 applications?

For me, the problem exists in
- Windows File Explorer (Window and Address-Bar)
- Notepad

It works in all other Microsoft apps like Excel, Word, Outlook and in all other apps as well

Screenshot Captor / Menu toolbar behaves weird
« on: May 15, 2012, 03:25 AM »
Hi mouser,

today, my SC started with its menu toolbar on a very unusual spot (see attachment).

* Bildschuss_20120515_10-16-32.jpg (139.09 kB. 1197x946 - viewed 320 times.)

I have absolutely no idea how it got there and how to get it "on top" again.

Any suggestion?

Can you try running TapTap in administrator mode (or windows xp compatibility mode, can't remember which one solved it)?

Tried XP-compatibility SP2 and 3 as well as "run as administrator": still no luck  :down:

« on: June 16, 2011, 02:14 AM »
Sorry for the long delay, I just didn't find the time. I did some testing and it seems that no keystroke whatsoever goes from Win7-Explorer to TapTap. I guess, answer 1 would be true.

The issue seems to occur in:

Windows Explorer
MS Paint 6.1 (Build 7600)

But all the other apps work fine (IE, Notepad, MS-Office, Firefox etc). I wouldn't care for paint, but in Explorer it really sucks.


I use TapTap a LOT and just love it. But now I seem to have stumbled upon a little bug.

My configuration looks like this:

-- snip---

// double right control to Control+V
keymap   DRC      :   C+V

// double right shift to Control+C
keymap   DRS      :   C+C

-- snip---

It works nearly always, but if I

- try to copy a filename from the Windows Explorer (right-click -> rename)


- try to copy the address from the addressbar of the Windows explorer

via Double-Right-Shift, nothing gets copied to the clipboard.

It's not a severe bug but a little annoying.

I use
Windows 7 Enterprise 64Bit
currently updated version (May 26, 2011)

Screenshot Captor / Re: FTP Uploader Script
« on: September 15, 2008, 01:11 AM »
G'damn it. I hoped I had written something that was not implemented before :( well well, you can't have it all, right?

Screenshot Captor / Re: FTP Uploader Script
« on: September 01, 2008, 11:58 AM »
VbsToExe worked for you? The generated .exe doesn't do a thing here on my computer :huh: I used the command "VbsToExe.exe screenshot_to_ftp.vbs screenshot_to_ftp.exe" but when I double-click the *.exe, nothing happens. The same is true if I try to use the *.exe in SC. Just nothing......

Screenshot Captor / Re: FTP Uploader Script
« on: August 29, 2008, 02:01 AM »
...ermmm.... hm.... never experienced that case before because all my screenshots get timestamped.
The script uses the FTP-command put to upload the file. This here says that put will react with a "Permission denied"-error if the file already exists on the remote server :( I believe it'd be possible to delete the remote file first in that case but I can't be bothered at the moment  ;) Feel free to enhance the script if you like.

Screenshot Captor / Re: FTP Uploader Script
« on: August 29, 2008, 01:16 AM »
Thank you for the flowers, lanux128. Converting the script to an exe is indeed a very nice idea. Didn't know of vbstoexe yet. I think I will do this on the weekend <- does not work, see below.

I totally agree with app103 and mouser. Just because you are able to write a software like this does not mean that you have to publish it on the WWW. There are too many idiots out in the wild who could do some serious damage with this program. Think about it, skrommel and then remove it from your download area.....
