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?

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.

ScreenshotCaptor v4.12.0

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.

In my copy-workflow I recognized that the dropped file is inserted smaller than the original size (tested with two identical screenshots) (picture 1).
After setting size to 100% the dropped object is still sharp as the original (picture 2).
But after "flatten all objects to backround" you can see that the inserted picture is a little bit blurred (picture 3).

(adding 57 screenshots manually took me nearly an hour).

Hello Olli,

why don't you open your word document, chose "insert" > "graphic", select all 57 screenshots you want and insert them with one click into your word document?
Maybe, if the screenshots are smaller than a page, you have to put in some "returns" after several pictures but I think this can be done in 1 minute.

Not sure i understand the bug with launching graphic editor -- can you elaborate?
If I have a screenshot with objects (e.g. the yellow highlights) (picture 1) and open it in graphic editor (GIMP), the screenshot without the objects is opened (picture 3).
Maybe this ist correct, but I remember I opened screenshots with objects in GIMP in earlier versions of SC.
This may be because I used "Save As" to produce a screenshot with embedded objects or by other reason.

But I think you may know if SC-behavior changed or this is based on the bug with "Save As" without objects file.


If the option "When using Save As, do not make a copy of the .Object file" is activated it doesn't work.
By using Save As the .Object file is still copied with the new filename.

Don't know if it's belong together, but by using "Launch Graphic Editor" (GIMP) or Tools (GIMP) with a screenshot which has its .objects file, the file without the objects ist opened in GIMP.
By opening the screenshot file directly from explorer the screenshot file with objects ist opened.

Hi Mouser,

is this topic about bigger icons for high resolution screens still on your roadmap?

How else can I capture the Quick Capture Bar?
If you need quick-capture-bar-pictures, you can use the pictures from https://www.donation...hotcaptor/index.html.

I also vote for a possibility to switch the icons to a big-icon-set.
