Just looked through the list of fixes in this new version;

- Fixed : Canvas ruler bugs in Image Editor
- Fixed : Color history is now saved.
- Fixed : Capture window control bug on Windows 7
- Fixed : Capture scroll window bug
- Fixed : Color Palette input box bugs
- Fixed : Remember a paper type when printing
- Fixed : hot key setting has been changed.
- Small known bugs were fixed

Should have put that in the previous post really. But it does list the problem discussed in this thread as fixed - I'm still seeing though, although it's not a huge problem to me. Interesting to hear if the fix works for anyone else.

Thanks deya for the update. I don't remember seeing a help icon there before. Can't really say if it was there in the previous versions. Its good if they provided this now. It does not explain all the functions of the program, but its a start atleast. They should provide a proper help though.

For me, the scrolling window capture did not pose any problem before. So, about the bug being fixed, maybe movrshakr can tell better.

I was puzzled as to why it wouldn't work with Opere 11 because before, when I used it, it worked perfect. Then it occured to me that since I last used PicPick with Opera I've changed the browser skin, from Opera Standard to the 10.6 Clean version 4.0.1. So I changed the skin back to Opera Standard and the scrolling window capture works as before - perfect.

Maybe this is why some people are having issues with other browsers? I don't know. But that's what happens with Opera. I'm thinking that the problem is with the browser, and not PickPic.

Another PicPick update - here. It says on the site that v3.0.0 has serious problems and asks users to update to this latest version.

I moved into installing 3.0.3 but was highly annoyed at Bing Bar being STRONGLY pushed for install. It is not clear that you can uncheck the 'agree to everything' box and PicPick will still install. A sensible dialog would make the Bing acceptance separate from the entire bundle. Not nice.

One attempt on a scroll capture in Chrome worked using ctrl-alt-s (after changing the hot key; c-a-prtscr did NOT work). So maybe that has been fixed--major success.

Installed 3.0.3 via the program and the option to install Bing was there so I unchecked the box. It is a bit annoying but it's a small price to pay for what is a very good program I suppose.

Tried the scrolling capture in several browsers and it works with them all, at varying degrees of speed. It even works with SeaMonkey Beta now, and Opera with the different skin so the updates have definitely improved it.

This is old thread, but scrolling capture may still give some problems. Possibly do to the wording used to describe steps.

1. For scrolling capture to work, you can only outline the area (object) that would ACTUALLY scroll, if you used scroll bars normally.

2. Initiate scrolling capture (default hot keys are Ctrl + Alt + PrtScrn, or select "scrolling window" from menu > Screen Capture>). Only position red border around actual scrolling area if you were to use a mouse wheel or grab the scroll bar slider (not stationary borders, toolbars).

The border of browser page or tabs bar don't scroll, so don't select those after initiating scrolling capture.

3. For entire browser page, have cursor over the up arrow of scroll bar (red outline around scrolling screen area, including scroll bar, but not screen border. Without moving cursor (red outline still correct position), click near the corner of the scrolling object. IMPORTANT: after scrolling starts, don't move cursor around or outside the scrolling object - it can stop scrolling.

4. Alternate method (still works in v4.20) - position mouse & red outline as before. In browser, with cursor over scroll bar up arrow, click in the scroll bar channel - on up arrow or slider. Drag cursor downward a bit. You don't have to drag to end of page. Once you click, DON'T move cursor around OR outside of scrollable object until scrolling is finished. Leave cursor still after L clicking.

5. Firefox Developer Tools has button to take screenshot of entire page (must enable under options). By default, saves images to file download location set in Firefox. But you can direct it to clipboard & specify a full page: In developer toolbar (Shift + F2) "command line", type:
screenshot --clipboard --fullpage.
Other options exist. Type Help Screenshot, in developer toolbar.

Thumbs up Thanks, Anupam!

I too had trouble initially with PicPick trying to capture a scrolling window, and I did not succeed. Later on, I heard Gizmo speaking about it on a podcast, and it was amazing how simply he had put it. Here is how to do it.

By default, the auto scroll is not activated. But, still, the scrolling window can be captured. To do that, take note of the hotkey required to capture scrolling window. Its Ctrl+Alt+PrintScreen at my end. Go to the webpage you want to capture, and press the hotkey combination. A red area will appear. Simply click inside it. The webpage will be scrolled automatically, and the image will open up in the editor.

I activated auto scroll with default time setting, and I found that the same procedure as above is required. Just press key combination, and click inside the red area. That's it.

Try this, and see if it works.
