@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.  :)

The tech department at my new school district (employer) won't let staff be 'administrators' of their computers.  I'm trying to talk them into elevating me, but I don't think that they will.   I'm wondering how other people cope with this?  It's super annoying.  I can't run trouble-shooters, or access certain system areas.  Worse is that I can't install many of the various computer programs I've come to rely on over the years. 

Fortunately, I am able to use a USB stick.   I've made a  folder at C:/Portables and put lots of "portable" (i.e. no-install) apps there, moving them over using the USB stick.  Mouser's stuff seems to all be portable which is a life saver.  Also I found NirSoft's "AdvancedRun" which has helped me install a couple of things that wouldn't install otherwise.  I google searched how to make an app into a portable app.  There doesn't seem to be any good solutions out there.  Everything listed was corporate-level stuff. 

Do you guys (and gals) have any tips for me to survive in this new non-elevated world?

Hey this is great!  I've needed this for years and never even knew it!  Hundreds of times, I've made a screenshot, then opened the image in Screenshot Captor in a floating window off to the side.  Your solution makes way more sense.  Thanks for sharing!
