Anupam - perfect.

I wish I'd heard Gizmo's podcast because that way is much simpler than mine. I never knew that, but just tried it a couple of times and it works perfect. I've been doing it the way I described since first using PicPick, just got used to doing it that way and never had a problem.

Thanks for helping us out with that - much appreciated

I am glad it worked for you, but there is clearly something weird preventing PicPick "capture scrolling window" from working on my computer.

I checked the options, and my "capture scrolling window" hotkeys are also Ctrl-Alt-PrtScrn (the default keys on install). That key combination does NOTHING on my Gateway laptop, whether autoscroll is checked on or not. NOTHING.

Capturing a region works. Everything else appears normal--it just won't do the scroll thing.

This is frustrating.

Well, progress but inadquate progress.

I changed the hotkey to Ctrl-Alt-m, and THAT key combination DID bring up the square PicPick box and highlight the window in red.

However, when I clicked in the window area, it did exactly as when I tried to drag the slider--it jumped a small bit south, captured a very slight bit more--and that's all it got.

More very interesting info...

I tried the procedure in a text document that was longer than one screen, being viewed in Jarte. The procedure worked like a champ!

BUT, it fails (works inadequately--as previously described) in Chrome, Opera, Firefox, and IE...in other words, in browsers, where it would normally be primarily used.

Any ideas why it performs differently in browsers vs. other programs?

LATER--more experimentation; no change. It works perfectly in every other program I try it in (email clients, Word, several text editors)...will not work in any of the four browsers I have. Does it fully scroll to the bottom of the browser page for everyone else?

deya, my pleasure in sharing that info .

movrshakr, its strange that the scroll capture is working for other applications, but not for browsers. I don't know the reason for that. I had tried it on my Firefox browser, and I was successful with the above method, and yes, the scroll does go all the way down to the end of page.

I see that you are trying to move the slider downward. I would suggest not to do that, and instead, just simply click in the red area, and that's it. Don't slide or do anything. After clicking with the left click, just leave it alone. It automatically slides down to the bottom of page. So, wait for it to do that, and see if it happens.

Are you using the laptop mousepad, or an external mouse? If you have an external mouse, maybe you can try with that. I can suggest just this at the moment, because that is what I can think of.

Well, atleast you got it to work on other applications, so its progress, and you now know how its done .

I've tried the capture both with the slide method and with the click inside the red, multiple times, both ways, four browsers. Both methods of starting the capture do the same thing--it makes one small jump downward, and that's it. How very puzzling.

I use an external mouse.

I don't see any support 'facility' on their site either.

Thanks for everyone's help here. At least I learned the keyboard kickoff method--and apparently that my PrtScr key is dead.

I too have problems with capturing scrolling web pages with Picpick. Often as not, using whatever method, the process starts and then just stops abruptly, having captured only a portion of the page.

I have also tried using PP to capture a whole webpage with activate auto scroll ticked under capture. I get the red oultine and it captures the image but only part of the page!

Well, here three of us have noted the exact same phenomenon. I think we have a BUG.

Anybody know how to communicate it to TRAKKER?

I really don't know why its not working for all of you. Can't think of any reason. I think you are all using laptops? But, I don't see how using a laptop will cause PicPick not to capture scrolling webpages.

BTW, I read somewhere that capturing scrolling window can also work by "Capture Window Control". I tried it, and it works. So, you can try that too as an alternative.

Yes, there is no help or support provided at the PicPick site. I had noticed this long ago, when I too wanted to know how to capture scrolling windows. They really should provide some help or manual, as there are things which general users might want to know. After all, PicPick has so many functions packed into it. A manual was needed. Neither they have a support forum.
