Fixes Size Captor - How to with Minimum Key presses

(1/4) > >>

I am trying to use Captor to replace Snipping Tool and Give me a fixed size capture window with minimum clicks.

With Snipping Tool I need 2 clicks start a dragable capture window, when I let go image is in clipboard

First how do I move Captor out of the notifications area so it is always in the taskbar?

I managed to find how to set preset sizes in my favouritres (not intuitive) - but how do I get one of those to be the default from some shortcut (then easily choose another)?

Currently IL
click Alt Ctrl PrntScrn - that puts a capture window around the current window
I then right click on red area (top left) then choose a size eg 420x236 - window changes size
BUT - as soon as I move my mouse to the resized window, it resizes to full size and moves partly off screen

What am I doing wrong - how do I get my 420x236 capture window on screen with minimum clicks then save to clipboard with minimum clicks?

Thanks ColinK

Open options.

Go to hotkeys and set a hotkey for "Capture Fixed Sized Region".

Go to My Favorites and set the "Fixed region capture" size.

Go to Interface Options and tell SC to "After Capture Show: Stay Minimized".

Go to Post-Capture Options and choose "Copy to clipboard:" and make your choice.

Thanks that was helpful.

It would be good to be able to choose from several pre-set sizes.

Is there a way for me to use "My Favorite preset sizes" to do the same / similar to above for any area of the screen (not a specific full window)? see attachment

Thanks ColinK

Those favorite sizes are easily toggleable from the redbox region capture mode, but that's different from the fixed size region capture.

Let me add a way to cycle through and directly select a favorite size once the fixed region capture is on screen -- i'll make it so you can hit 1,2,3,4,5,etc. to select that favorite preset.

Thanks again for your reply.

I am still not clear of the purpose of the Favorites or how to use them - you say they "are easily toggleable from the redbox region capture mode" - I have looked in help and forum and cannot find anything on favorites or "red box capture mode".

I think you are saying that you will add code so that wheh I select a preset size I will be able to easily to toggle through the preset sizes  - this will be very useful.

My best case procedure would be:
CTRL+SHIFT+(my chosen key) - opens dragable red box, with size from 1st in list - drag + the following options
click to save (same as current)
Numeric keys 1,2,3,4,5, resize red box, drag, click to save

Perhaps this is what you are describing

Thanks ColinK
