If you check the Auto-scroll window option under Capture tab
of Capture settings dialog, the program will automatically scroll
the captured application's window. It scrolls long pages with a vertical
scroll bar, allowing you to capture more than you can see on the screen.
In general, leave this function disabled unless you absolutely need this
Important: Auto-scroll doesn't work for all applications that have a
vertical scroll bar. Some applications erase the marks that Quick
Screenshot Maker draws over the window it captures while scrolling. These
marks allow it to find out how many pixel lines was scrolled during the
scrolling interval. If these control marks are erased, Quick Screenshot
Maker has no way of knowing how much data to capture.
In such a case, it
will display an error message and capture what it could without scrolling.
The most popular web browsers (MS Internet Explorer) work well with
auto-scroll, and many other programs tested well with it. However it may
not work with programs who handle the screen in a method hostile to the
control mark method.
Here are the steps for
making an Auto-scroll window capture:
- Make sure the auto-scroll option is enabled.
- Have the target window ready, with the vertical scroll bar set to
the top, or to the place where you want to start the Auto-scrolling
- Select "Capture > Window, Control, Button" from Quick Screenshot
Maker's menu, or set the default / last capture to "Window, Control,
Button" under the Capture tab of Capture settings dialog
and press the hotkey.
- Move your mouse to the middle of the document that you want to
Auto-scroll capture and click the left mouse button inside the document.
- Watch how Quick Screenshot Maker scrolls the window, and as it does
this, it draws horizontal marks over it.
Tip: If you want, you can abort this process early by
left-clicking the mouse. If you elect to wait until it finishes, the
window will scroll until all of the available text has scrolled into
view and has been captured. On some documents, remember, this might be
very, very long resulting in a huge capture that consumes much memory
(or disk space).
- The capture is complete. Examine the contents of Quick Screenshot
Maker's window to make sure it captured the contents correctly, and save
the file using the name you wish to use.
