Hi Mouser,

did you have time to look for this topic?

The file icons in the sreenshot panel (simple list) are really disappearing when switching "Toolbar icon sizing" to bigger icons (24, 32, 48, 64)
and the screenshot folder is on a synchronized folder (e.g. onedrive) with overlay-icons. (picture in first post 08-07-2020).

If I use another screenshot folder without overlay-icons, I can use bigger icons without problems.
But I need the screenshot folder in the cloud.

I have the 4-41b in daily use.
My UWHD-Screen is captured completely without problems (3440 x 1440) with scale 100%.

WIN 10 64bit 1909

I've tested with other screenshot folder because my original screenshot folder is synchronized with OneDrive so that file icons have overlay icons with synchronization information.

When I chose another folder without overlay icons I can use bigger toolbar icon.
The file and folder icons in the "list of filenames" on the left side are correctly shown (also in the desired size).

When I switch back to my default screenshot folder which is synchronized with OneDrive, all file and folder icons are gone away.
But I need the folder on OneDrive because I have the same folder on 2 PC.

So I think the problem is to scale the overlays icons (ore to disable the overlays).


Hi mouser,

any plans for discussed features?

  • customizable toolbars, buttons for more (all) menu entries (my most commonly used functions are'nt available as toolbar buttons)
  • customizable hotkeys for menu entries (functions)

  • bigger toolbar buttons
which now can be resized on "More Interface Options" isn't working well for me.
I can only use 16x16 (original) icons because if i use bigger icons, the folder- and file-icons in THUMBNAIL panel on the left are disappearing.
It seems that they are also resized and are now too big for the line with the filename.
Look at screenshots in topic https://www.donation...ex.php?topic=50113.0

Your settings are located in ScreenshotCaptor.ini

In portabe SSC it's in SSC-Folder ...\ScreenshotCaptor\ScreenshotCaptor.ini

In setup-version normally it's in ...Users\USERNAME\Documents\DonationCoder\ScreenshotCaptor

You can make a copy of ScreenshotCaptor.ini and put it back after new setup.

You can change soundfile or edit soundfile to lower volume


Yes, it's "list of filenames".

If I use bigger icons for the toolbar the file- and folder-icons on the left side of the filnames disappear.
(Top picture on the attachment)

It seems that they are also resized and the size is too big for the column.

If I switch to 16x16 px for the toolbar the file- and folder-icons are displayed.
(Bottom picture on the attachment)

EDIT: This is strange! After writing this in the morning, I started SC and everything is ok!
         The file- and folder-icons are displayed also with bigger size.
         I sweare, they were disappeared for weeks, so I made that screenshot in the first post.

Excuse me, I think it was a falsch alarm.

Best wishes

Hi Mouser,
I'm using the new option for "Toolbar icon sizing" with icon size 24x24.
With this setting the screenshotpanel on the left is also enlarging the file- and folder-icons so that the place for them is too small.
They are only displayed with iconsize 16x16.

Thank for your ongoing hard work!

I've just created some hotkeys for my favorite screenshotcaptor functions with autohotkey.
They are working well, but a solution for hotkeys and toolbar buttons inside screenshotcaptor are hopefully expected.

Stay healthy  :up:

Hi mouser,
new beta out, but no function like proposed in this thread.
Do you still have extension of toolbar or hotkeys in mind?

Stay healthy  :up:

Hi mouser,
I've tested v 4.36.2.

Delete Contents of Selection is working as expected. I think it's ok for a SpecialFX function not to be bound to the Delete key by default?
If you some time give us a possibility to define custom hotkeys for all functions, everyone can make his own preferred hotkeys.

. . . there is a spelling mistake for this function: "Delete contents of selection (make stransparent)"

"Toolbar icon sizing" also works like expected. 24x24 is ok for me. Bigger icons are extremely pixelated.

Are customizable toolbars (positions), buttons for other menu entries and customizable hotkeys on your plan for the near future?

Thanks for your awesome software  :Thmbsup:

If people let me know there favorite features that they would like to see toolbar buttons for I will add them right away.
My favorite features for toolbar buttons and hotkeys are:

SpecialFX2: Patchtext/contents of selected region with background
SpecialFX2: Splice out strip defined by selection - Deluxe effects
Objects: Flatten all objects to background

I use them every Screenshot Captor session.

are there any thoughts from you about the proposed feature ideas?

Hi Mouser,

nice to hear that you're looking for more feature ideas.

I remember some old ideas (but didn't find the original forum-topics):

  • customizable toolbars, buttons for more (all) menu entries (my most commonly used functions are'nt available as toolbar buttons)
  • bigger toolbar buttons
  • customizable hotkeys for menu entries (functions)

I would use acrobat to save the pdf as separate pictures, but what is the sense of making pictures of 560 pdf-pages?

You can capture the first screenshot with "Grab selected Region" and capture the following screenshots with "Grab Repeat last size+pos".

Maybe you've started each screenshotcaptor.exe-version from another directory?

You can clean up the cache for the trayicons with regedit (https://www.deskmodd..._l.C3.B6schen_lassen)

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\TrayNotify

Delete the two entries:

Or you can use a cleaning tool like "Notification Area Cleaner" (http://www.itsamples...on-area-cleaner.html)

Not tried by myself because no need.

I think your problem is the blend mode "muliply". Switch to blend mode "normal" and your transparancy will work.
Blend modes are used to defgine how two layers are blended into each other.

(off-topic, but I'm curious: what's the model?)
It's a NEC EA244WMi

I'm a little bit confused at the moment!

I started this thread on one computer with a new NEC monitor and I definitively see the backround shine through the foregroundpicture.
Then I looked at this thread on my other computer with an older Dell monitor and couldn't see the shine through.  :huh:
I also downloaded the picture and looked at it with zoom. No shine through.

First I thought it was a problem in uploading image, but back at my NEC monitor I opened this thread again and the shine through was back!  >:(

So I loaded the picture in Gimp and looked at the color information of the white area and of the light grey shinining through area.
Maybe the difference of 254 to 255 isn't visible on all monitors, but on my NEC it's always visible.

When I paste this foreground picture on the backround picture in Gimp the result is a clear white area with no shine through.

Is there a possibility of correcting this little aberration?

_Screenshot transparency2.png

Hi Mouser,

when I copy a picture and paste it on an existing screenshot the pasted picture is not completely intransparent.
Same behaviour with dragging a screenshot on another screenshot an put it on top of the backround picture.

Transparency is still set to 255 but the the backround is shining through the frontpicture.

Sorry, sometimes you're incredible fast  ;D

Yes, in the new beta the blurry problem is away  :Thmbsup:

Thank you!

Hi Mouser,

what's about this topic?
In new beta 4.94.flattening of objects still makes the pasted image blurry.
