Yep, that get's closer to what I was expecting. I didn't see or explore these options previously. I was focusing on the settings in the Post Capture Options section, and didn't think to look in the Quick Bar and Post Cap section. Maybe the Quick Bar through me off.

With the settings you've outlined above, I can now click once with the mouse on Copy to Clipboard to dismiss the dialog box and copy the image to the clipboard. This also creates a saved file of the image. Is there a way to do the same without saving a file, just copy to clipboard?

Pressing Alt+C will also copy to the clipboard and dismiss the dialog, same as left clicking the button. Wouldn't Ctrl+C be better? Or, did you stick with the Alt key as a modifier to maintain standard dialog behavior?

Also, I noticed that using the quick Copy to Clipboard option, the drop shadow Post Capture Effect is not captured in the image. This is listed as an Improvement in v4.5. It does not seem to be working for me in v4.5.

no need for any modifier, just hit C.

hmm, let me have another look.

there is an option at the very bottom of the "More Interface Options" tab labeled "Don't Auto Save Captures"

bubbajunk:
Thanks for bringing the "Don't Auto Save Captures" option to my attention. I think I had used it in a prior version, but had forgotten about it. It is working for me to be able to quickly take a capture without creating a file.

I seem to have run into another issue, I'm sure you help me resolve. Could just be another setting I'm missing. I have the "Don't Auto Save" and "After Capture>Show Main Form" options set. If I capture a Selected Region and don't make any changes to the image, hit Ctrl+C to copy to clipboard, then click the red X to dismiss the SC dialog, then no file is created (as expected).

But if I make any change to the image in the SC form, e.g. highlighting boxes, hit Ctrl+C, then dismiss the SC dialog, a new file is created (not expected). I want to  be able to make a couple quick changes to the image, then copy to the clipboard and close without creating a new file. Sometimes I would want a file, but not always.

I have the "On Unsaved Changes>Ask User What to Do" radio button selected. I expected there to be a popup message when I clicked the red X asking me if I want to save the changes. I'm not getting any message when I click the red X. Is there another setting I'm missing?

mouser:
Hmm.. I'll have to look into this.. In general, SC is not really designed to not save changes and still do things like copy the image to the clipboard, so you are really pushing the envelope by wanting to make changes, copy to clipboard, while never saving.

I try to encourage people to give in to the workflow of letting SC save images, and just delete them later.  You can easily delete all images in the Screenshot directory from the file menu.  Saving the files for a short period gives you a safety net.

New official version uploaded with lots of new features and fixes; thanks to all the beta testers!

v4.7.0 - September 12, 2013

* [Feature] Added new shape option for arrows (circle endpoints).
* [Feature] New quick-search-bar for easy filtering of screenshots listed in thumbnail panel (see view menu).
* [Feature] Added File menu item to close current file and have nothing loaded.
* [Feature] You can now sort standard thumbnail sidebar with newest at top if you like.
* [Feature] New option (enabled by default) to auto-select next file after deletions.
* [Feature] New option (Print tab) to invert colors of printouts (maybe useful if printing mostly black images on laser printer).
* [Feature] New help panel when in object editing mode (you can disable this new behavior from the Object Drawing options tab).
* [Feature] The Caption toolbar button will now help you EDIT an existing caption, replacing and resizing the existing caption text object.
* [Feature] New item in Object menu to remove an existing caption.
* [Improvement] If user accidentally loads a second instance, the error message and behavior is clearer.
* [Improvement] SC now remembers sorting column+direction in list/detail thumbnail sidebar modes.
* [Improvement] Improved sizing of columns in different detail view modes; new simple left hand list mode.
* [Improvement] When set to stay minimized after capture, if SC was onscreen when capture initiated, it would jump to front and not always relinquish foreground window after completion.  Note that the SC window does return to the screen and not minimize if it was on screen when capture initiated.
* [Improvement] Better support for dragging and dropping images from other programs (especially web browser) onto main window.
* [Improvement] Starting your word in the new screenshot filter edit box with ~ will show files that do NOT match what it typed next.
* [Improvement] Caption dialog form now has a multiline memo for the caption text.
* [Change] Iff multiple images are selected, the toolbar delete button will now delete all instead of just the current image.
* [Change/Bugfix] Line/Arrow labels with "no-border" mode set could sometimes show a border; now the no-border option shows no border and draws label text directly over existing background.
* [BugFix] Print preview settings (margins, orientation, etc.) triggered from post-capture dialog were not being synchronized with main print preview settings.
* [BugFix] If you brought up Print setup dialog, and from their print properties dialog, it could be hidden behind main window.
* [BugFix] Fixed case where the last file might not be loaded (or scrolled down to) at start of program.
* [BugFix] The fix to keep printer setup dialog on top was messing with other forms appearing behind main window.
* [BugFix] When SC was on screen at time of initiating capture, sometimes the current foreground window was not preserved as focused window (and did not show up in capture as an active window).
* [BugFix] If a modal message was showing, it was possible to toggle main form visible or initiate a capture, hiding the modal message.
* [BugFix] Redbox (scrolling and object capture modes) were not obeying the stay-minimized-after-capture options.
* [BugFix] Choosing an object (like arrow) to draw, and changing properties BEFORE drawing, was not obeying new settings.
* [BugFix] Fixed an error that could occur when using network paths for home/screenshot/config directories.
