MiniCap's -captureregselect with Scaled monitor
« on: September 03, 2019, 01:28 PM »
I've always used MiniCap (v 1.40.01) with the following switches:

MiniCap.exe -captureregselect -clipimage -exit

I start it using a hotkey, I select what I want to capture, and it saves to my clipboard, and it exits. Short and sweet.

However, I recently got a new monitor with a very high resolution: 3840x2160
In order to keep things readable, that monitor is scaling to 150%.
Now, when I use the switch -captureregselect, the screen changes resolution, even on my second monitor that is not scaled (ie: 100%). It changes right back after I finish the selection.
When I use -captureredregselect the resolution doesn't change.

How do I fix this?

I may be able to fix this.. Can you do something for me, can you try the normal Screenshot Captor application and do a region capture with this (default shift+PrtScr), and tell me if the same thing happens?

Here's two attachments.
Full Screen is just one monitor as it shows (so scaled 150%).
The second screen the same monitor is when I do the regselect using minicap and the shift-prtscr with Screenshot Captor.
(I did a printscreen and cropped out the extra monitor both times)

-captureredregselect does not have the same issue, that works without rescaling.
Is it possible to have -captureredregselect select a rectangle the same way as -captureregselect?
