4K monitor 175% scaling causes lots of problems.

Strange.. I'll look into that.

I'll see if i can't add your 10 pixel nudge, maybe using some unusual combo of shift+alt or something.

That would be great, thanks!

Both monitors are set the same way. If I set the DPI scaling to 150% for both monitors, it works fine. If I set both monitors to 175%, if magnifies and cuts off the bottom-right of the desktop. This does not occur with Windows built-in Snipping Tool.

And guess what? If I set both monitors to 150%, that does in fact solve the nudging issue. (Sorry, I was mistaken earlier when I said it was unrelated.)

So, 4K monitor 175% scaling causes lots of problems.

Think I figured that part out. It's because my laptop is docked to two 4K monitors with the scale set to 175%.

The pixel nudge thing, however, doesn't seem to be related to that.

@mouser,

I just downloaded the latest (4.29.0). Unfortunately, I'm having major issues with region select now:

  • It magnifies what's on the screen, which in itself could be helpful, but when I copy the image to the clipboard, it's still magnified, not normal sized. This is definitely not what I'd expect or what I want.
  • I don't seem to be able to use the cursor key nudge feature at all anymore. If I single press a cursor key, nothing happens. If I hold down a cursor key, it eventually starts moving then suddenly goes way too fast and flies past where I want it to be. I just want it to work the way I suggested. Press a cursor key and it moves one pixel. Press shift+cursor key and it moves 10 pixels. If I want to move any faster than 10 pixels at a time, I use the mouse.

For the moment, is there some setting I can adjust to allow it to return the previous behavior where there is no magnification and one press of a cursor key moves one pixel on the screen?

I'll let you know when I get a chance to download and check it out. Sounds great, though. I don't mind it being in the editing mode.

I just tried out the magic wand in the editing mode, and it actually doesn't do what I want (at least not easily). I'm looking for a shrink-wrapped rectangular selection, not to select all pixels of a particular color. I can achieve the shrink-wrapped selection pretty well with the rectangular selection tool in the editing mode (thanks to being able to move the edges of the selection box after making an initial selection), but it would definitely be nice to have a one-click way to do this within the editing mode. Perhaps it could be called "shrink-wrap select".

As for the original request, the 10-pixels at a time would still be a nice convenience and help users who come from other tools that have the feature (like HyperSnap), but the editing mode somewhat compensates for not having it if people are willing to put in the effort to learn how to use it.

Okay last post before I have to go into airplane mode. Magic wand feature would be terrific.

I'll have to get back to you. I just boarded a plane  :)

It's not a counting issue though. It's when the extreme edges of an object are not at the corners (like a diamond shape).

Imagine trying to select the Modify icon without any missing or extra pixels on any edge.

That might be helpful as well (for creating a margin around a selection) but I don't think it solves the same problem of shrink-wrapping.

Speeding up is helpful, but not equivalent because 10-pixel nudge allow for "shrink-wrap selection" of irregular shapes. It's hard to explain without a video, but it basically allows you to find the extreme top edge, then move some multiple of 10 pixels away from that to find the extreme left edge (repeat with right and bottom edges). Without the 10 pixel nudge, this takes far too much counting.

From what I can see, Shift+Arrow moves the whole rectangular selection, Alt+Arrow moves the top-left corner, and Arrow by itself moves the bottom-right corner. Ctrl+Arrow doesn't seem to do anything different than Arrow by itself. I'm guessing Ctrl+Arrow is for something I'm just not seeing, but if not, then Ctrl+Arrow would be a good choice for 10-pixel nudge. Otherwise, yes, Shift+Ctrl+Arrow would be sensible.

ETA: From the help, it sounds like Ctrl-Arrow is supposed to adjust the size of the selected area symmetrically, but this is not working for me.

Ahh gotcha. So would you consider a feature that allows 10 pixels at a time?

Thanks for your speedy reply  8)

You can use shift, alt, ctrl combined with cursor keys to tweak the selected-region capture box once you start selecting a region in selected region capture mode.

Hmm, I have tried this several times, and the modifier keys don't seem to do anything. No matter what I do, the cursor keys only move one pixel at a time. Is this a setting that has to be turned on? If not, something is not working properly for me.

Glad to hear two of the other items are in the works.

I've been using HyperSnap for years but thought I'd check out ScreenshotCaptor. So far, I think it has a lot of nice features, but there are a couple things I miss from HyperSnap and can't figure out how to do:

  • For region captures, I'd like to be able to use Shift+Arrow to nudge 10 pixels at a time in each direction.
  • I'd like an option to have the "fixed size region" be the same size as my most recent region capture (in HyperSnap, this is called "pan last capture").

I also noticed a couple more minor things (on Windows 10):

  • The toolbar buttons in the built-in editor don't seem to resize based on the global scale setting in Windows Display Settings > Change the size of text, apps, and other items (they are super tiny w/ a 4K monitor).
  • The Preferences dialog can get buried behind other windows and doesn't reappear if you attempt to reopen it from the tray menu.
