Screenshot Captor / Feature Request: Measure based on a scale
« on: May 16, 2017, 03:06 PM »
I frequently have to measure engineering drawings that are not to scale. They do have dimensions markers on them with listed values. I have to take a ruler and measure that line. Since I know what the length of the line is supposed to be and what it actually is measured to I can use that as a scale factor/ratio (known value divided by the measured value) . I can then measure any other distance on that image and multiple it by the scale factor to determine what it should be.

I know there are problems with this method, particularly if the aspect ratio is different from the original. It would still make for a pretty good approximation. I believe this would be a valuable addition to the ScreenShot Captor set of tools. I see the process working like:
1. Take a screen capture
2. use a "caliper" tool to identify a known length on an image. Enter in the corresponding known length
3. use a calibrated measure tool to select two points on the image - the calibrated length will be displayed.

It really doesn't have to be much more sophisticated than that. Maybe there could be an option to apply a horizontal and vertical calipers to attempt to correct for aspect ratio errors?


Screenshot Captor / Forgets Settings on Boot
« on: May 04, 2017, 06:42 AM »
Hi All, I am having a bit of trouble with Screenshot Captor and it forgetting its settings.

I am using v4.20.1 and IT at work have setup roaming profiles. I think this is the problem. So as a first step I put ConfigDir.ini in the installation folder and have CONFIGDIR = D:\documents\ which is a folder on my d drive that isn't under the roaming profiles. In D:\documents I have ScreenshotCaptor.ini which is setup correctly.

I every time I boot the laptop up Screenshot captor seems to forget the settings. The odd thing is that it is looking at the d:\documents folder, but it doesn't seem to find the ScreenshotCaptor.ini because it creates a new folder to put the screenshots in and displays the quick access bar which I always turn off. There are also a few other settings like adding the screen capture to the clipboard and not playing any capture sounds.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

I have a folder where I am storing screen captures. I have the default new file name template set as "sc%num%" which will create screen captures sc001.png, sc002.png etc. This works great. Is it possible to tell Screenshot Captor to start at a specific number? Say the folder is empty and I want to start naming then images sc021.png.

Cheers and thanks,

It would be nice to be able to store the preferences in different files and to load them up by selecting from a drop down menu. The reason this would be handy is if you are working on different projects that require different effects, naming conventions, crops, frames, etc. be applied to the various screen captures. Once the settings are saved for a particular project you just need to load them backup to use them. It would also make sharing the setting easier.


Screenshot Captor / Align clip-art numbers
« on: June 09, 2008, 02:33 PM »
Hi all,

I was wondering if there is a way to align clip-art numbers relative to one another. For example, I have a screenshot that I want to put numbers after each of the text boxes to indicate steps. I would like all of the clip-art numbers to be left aligned with each other. Is there a way to do this?
