Screenshot Captor / Change request - Captor File Naming
« on: October 08, 2019, 10:22 AM »
Screnshot Captor is saving me lots of time, particularly last years favorites sizes feature.

Request1 - add a suffix 001 to the first screenshot of the day. (see screenshot attached)
I have set up my file naming format as YYMMDD. The first screenshot of the day is eg

Next files and subsequent files are named eg
191018 002, 003 etc

As I often do screenshots in matching pairs sequential numbering is important, but when I sort by file name order ascending in Windows Explorer the first file of the day ends up at the bottom of the list.

It would be helpful if 1st file of the day could be named with suffix 001 eg 191018 001
This would also mean when I sort files in explorer as icons in 2 columns, the matching pairs would be together

Request2 - When files are removed from my Capror folder continue the same numbering format for the day - do not start again.

Looking at the attached screenshot, if I move Screenshot - 191008 033 to a different folder, the next file I save will have the same name, so I cannot move it to the same folder (I need to move to a temp folder then rename).

Same thing happens if I move filename Screenshot - 191008 004, next file has identical name and following screenshots continues with Screenshot - 191008 034, 035 etc

Similarly If I move all of todays files to a new folder and do the same number of screnshots (same day) I end up with two sets of files with exact same name.

I realze this is a bit more complicated to implement that request 1, but perhaps the following would work.

Instead of creating a new file name based on the "lowest missing or un-named file name" eg 191008 004 or 191008 034 could you save the last file name somewhere in the app then add 1 for the next new screenshot (for that day) - irrespective of whether or not the folder for saving still contains or does not contain previous screenshots for that day.

I have been successfully using the preset sizes for screen capture for a few days.

Today my setting for 420x236 are being captured at 418x234, same 2px difference for all sizes.

Does not matter where I paste the image to - still looses 2px

Did a force stop with Task Manager, same issue when re-started.

Fixed Size capture is capturing correct size

Any suggestion?

I am trying to use Captor to replace Snipping Tool and Give me a fixed size capture window with minimum clicks.

With Snipping Tool I need 2 clicks start a dragable capture window, when I let go image is in clipboard

First how do I move Captor out of the notifications area so it is always in the taskbar?

I managed to find how to set preset sizes in my favouritres (not intuitive) - but how do I get one of those to be the default from some shortcut (then easily choose another)?

Currently IL
click Alt Ctrl PrntScrn - that puts a capture window around the current window
I then right click on red area (top left) then choose a size eg 420x236 - window changes size
BUT - as soon as I move my mouse to the resized window, it resizes to full size and moves partly off screen

What am I doing wrong - how do I get my 420x236 capture window on screen with minimum clicks then save to clipboard with minimum clicks?

Thanks ColinK
