Regarding the ghost rectangle, I think I figured out what causes it...  My laptop has an external monitor that is larger than the monitor of the laptop.  Win 10 lets you define how they line up with each other (screenshot)

I had it so that the bottom edges were lined up.  Now it's changed so the tops are lined up as in the screenshot.   Like this, RR seemed to work as expected (see new gif). 

I think what happened is that some applications reference the location of the screen by comparing it with the top/left corner.  The top/left corner is x0,y0.  But if the other monitor is above this "y0" position, I think that certain apps get confused.  One of my favorite little apps is CrossHair by Mike Lin https://download.cnet.com/developer/mike-lin/i-6285142   It sometimes has the same problem if I'm in dual monitor mode.   

I'm not a programmer so I don't know if this is possible, but I think the solution might be to ensure that all of the graphics objects reference the x.y coordinates of monitor 1.  Make sure that none of them reference the coordinates of the "work space" or the "desktop area."  I don't know.... Like I said I'm not a programmer!   :D

An odd bug just showed up...  I think it might have to do with my dual-monitor setup(?)  I managed to capture a quick screencast and save it as a .gif (attached below).  Anyway, if I select a small rectangle, then an additional "ghost" rectangle is drawn below it.  When I release the mouse button, the selection is extended so that it includes the ghost rectangle...  Hard to explain, but check out the gif.  Make sure to view at zoom = 100%.

@KodeZwerg:  Thank you for the explanation.  The location is indeed non protected (C:\PortableApps\RaptureReplica).  I am not an administrator of my machine so I must use non protected locations--very frustrating.  Anyway, I did get RR to save the ImageOpacity.   To do this, I manually changed the "OpacityImage" key in the .ini file, as shown below:

Code: Text [Select]
  1. [Options]
  2. AutoSave=1
  3. OpacityGrab=100
  4. OpacityImage=255
  5. InvertColors=0

After I manually change the OpacityImage key to "255" then it saves as expected. 

@Contro:  Yes, ABBYY has the best object character recognition (OCR) technology!  It is great.  If anyone wants to check out a good freeware OCR tool, check out http://capture2text.sourceforge.net/ Capture2Text is very capable.  It uses Tesseract OCR technology though (which is open source).  I find that Tesseract will not capture a data table correctly,  but tools using ABBYY technology will.  For capturing scanned text documents, though, both technologies are equally good.  If a person wishes to convert an entire large document, check out the free https://sourceforge.net/projects/gimagereader/

[ Invalid Attachment ] i don't get it. What is this for ?
I have obtained a little window as showed. What can I do with that ?
 :-\
It is for times that you need to have information from one window visible, while you work in another window.  Perhaps there is a small table of numbers that you must enter into an Excel spreadsheet.  The table of numbers is in an email.  You cannot copy-n-paste because Excel messes up the formatting.  You must manually type the numbers in.  There are too many to remember, so you must view the table as you are typing into Excel.  If you have a computer with two monitors, put Excel in one monitor and put your email in the other monitor.   If you only have one single monitor though, it is hard to have both things visible at once.  RaptureReplica will allow you to open the email, copy the image of the table, then minimize your email program and open Excel.  You will be able to work in Excel, but will the image of the data table will be visible on top of it.  This is only one example.

I was going to suggest auto-saving opacity, but I see that it is already planned.   :Thmbsup:
It is already implemented in latest download  :D
I don't think this is working.   Maybe I'm doing it wrong?  I have changed autosave=0 to autosave=1 in the ini file.  Still it does not save to opacity.  I am using Win 10. 

Regarding the name, I think that "RaptureReplica" is a good name for it.  The common religious view of the rapture is that God will pick out his select few people and raise them up into the sky to be with him yadda yadda.    With your software, the user is selecting a portion of the screen to raise up and be on top of the other windows....   It's a good analogy.    "CaptureRapture" would've also been a good name. 

EDIT:  It might be good to put a date/time stamp or version number in the Manual.txt or maybe the .ini file as a ;comment.  Otherwise the old and new versions look identical to us users.  :)
