Feature request: Grab and stick it/them in the foreground
« on: August 21, 2020, 01:15 AM »
Add a new button: Grab and Stick (or Paste?)

The original post is here.

See a demo gif here
RAPTURE_DEMO.gifFeature request: Grab and stick it/them in the foreground
It grabs selected region then sets it always on top using a simple photo viewer(I guess so).

Cons: The title bar on the screenshot is meaningless and ugly, remove it.
And don't forget... Move it around with mouse dragging on the screenshots.

I may try to replica this as a standalone tool, with your wishes (no caption, on top, dragable) just for fun since it makes not much sence to me :-)
Keyboard Escape-Key would close snapped Window.
sorry bad english and Delphi are my hobby ;)
politeness is not one of my strengths in writing, just because it sounds rough doesn't mean that I mean it rough.

@KodeZwerg
Glad to hear that  :up:

I think this feature would help you a lot sometimes.
eg. it's useful if you are a blogger, CPDA... when comparing different contents... Thus we don't have to switch between different windows.
Take a look at rapture android version tutorial on Youtube.

Note:
Besides no caption, on top, dragable. Don't forget opacity(50%), temporarily hide, zoom in/out,
And maybe simple annotation, add to group(by dragging them together)...

Let me first try to do like I wrote, if after testing you find it good/useful, we can talk about more features.
One thing I can predict: Zoom in/out = ATM I have no skills for that matter and I really dont know if I am willing to learn such stuff :-)

Why I want to first get it tested by you (or others) before talking about additional features:
I have a bad memory in my mind where a User needed an application,
I was already 80-90% done with it, without sharing my application, just showing screenshots,
more and more wishes came in, more and more people did their positive and negative feedback,
up to a point where I lost my fun in producing it = deleted project.
To not let this happen ever again is the reason why.

Anyway:
opacity = no problem
temporarily hide = here I need to re-ask at given time how you mean it.
zoom in/out = problem
annotation = here I need to re-ask at given time how you mean it. (I guess a picture say more than a thousand words....)

Thank you KodeZwerg

I would like to be a tester if you have interests in this feature.  :)
But I still wish this could be a build-in feature on Screenshot Captor. To make SC better.

I hope to be able on Tuesday/Wednesday to deliver a working standalone Demo version.
ATM I do fight speedproblems with drawing a rectangle while holding left mouse button.
Either my mouse hook is crap or the way how I draw rectangle or probably both

Today I will redo my work.
If I can't fix it, I will still upload to let you decide if going on or trashcan project.
