Is there a way to control the scrollbar position vs the Zoom settings (inside the editing window)?


I am so used to having CRTL+MouseWheel control Zoom, and the normal mousewheel controling the scrollbar.  I would like to mimic that if possible.  Alternatively, if there is a way to control the scrollbar position without having to click and drag the scrollbar, that would be fine too.  This would save me moments of frustration each day :-).  If this isn't possible yet, that is fine.  I've lived this long.  Just thought I would ask :-).

Btw, I probably don't say this enough but even after all these years, Screenshot Captor has been one of most valuable pieces of software.  Still an excellent job of coding!

Just testing out v4.28.0 (downloaded recently).

+1 - I like the region selection capabilities -- I've never really used this option before, but the keys are handy, and it is very smooth!

Bug - Unable to remove "Auto-Adjust (Shrink) region" from toolbar (option is there, but isn't respected).

Thanks for the capabilities!

Thanks mouser.  I will check back periodically.

In the meantime, I wrote a simple powershell script to do what I wanted (see below).

EDIT:  in case someone did want to use this script, I added the full script with the Assemblies.  Otherwise it could only be run in PowerShell ISE. 

Code: PowerShell [Select]
  1. [void] [System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("System.Windows.Forms")
  2. [void] [System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("PresentationFramework")
  5. If( [bool](Get-Process "ScreenshotCaptor" -ea "SilentlyContinue") -eq $false ) {
  6.     [void][System.Windows.MessageBox]::Show( "Unable to find ScreenshotCaptor running.`nPlease start it, and re-run this script.", "Error - Unable to continue", "Ok", "Error" )
  7.     Exit 1
  8. }
  10. While( $true ) {
  11.     If( ([System.Windows.Input.Keyboard]::IsKeyDown([System.Windows.Input.Key]::LeftShift)) -and ([System.Windows.Input.Keyboard]::IsKeyDown([System.Windows.Input.Key]::LeftCtrl)) ) { Break }
  12.     If( [System.Windows.Forms.UserControl]::MouseButtons -ne "None" ) {
  13.       While( [System.Windows.Forms.UserControl]::MouseButtons -ne "None" ) { Start-Sleep -Milliseconds 100 }  ### Wait for the MOUSE UP event
  14.       [Windows.Forms.Sendkeys]::SendWait("{PrtSc}")
  15.     }
  16.     Start-Sleep -Milliseconds 100
  17. }

Thanks again!

Thanks Tom,

I did know of that utility, but was looking for something a little different.

I am looking for something that can be a better "PSR" (Problem Steps Recorder) than Windows provides.  I use PSR.exe, and then edit the resulting MHT file inside Microsoft Word.  Kludgy is the most apt description for the process.

I was thinking Screenshot Captor's automatic timer was similar to what I was looking for, except instead of time, base the screen-captures on Mouse Clicks.  All of the other functionality is already built-in.  This would allow me to start an install/process, capture it (no matter how long it took), and then paste all the screenshots into OneNote.

I know I can use PrintScreen for manual captures, but sometimes that can be forgotten in long processes.  Plus, I would like to encourage my co-workers on establishing better documentation for ourselves, so something easy would encourage them to use Screenshot Captor instead of PSR.  I also could purchase software like 'StepShot Manuals' but Screenshot Captor already has all the functionality, plus I am more use to it :-).

I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask if this was on the roadmap.

Screenshot Captor / Automatic screenshot but only on Mouse Clicks?
« on: February 04, 2018, 01:09 PM »
I have been using Screenshot Captor for several months.  One feature I wish it had was an "automatic screenshot on each mouse click".

I like the automatic-timer screenshots option, but is based on a timer (4 sec) and stops after 10 screenshots.  I know I can change these options, but I would rather have something that waited for mouse-clicks, and stopped when I am done.

I was looking through the forum posts and found this:

It mentions a "capture on mouse click" option in the planning stage.  Is there an idea when this might be realized?
