Thanks for the detailed feedback. I have started
updating the resources and the version.

isn't a need for all these formats for a screen capture
utility. If someone want one of these missing formats in
the future I can look at it then.
Version strings need to be updated.Mostly done.
Help needs some additional adjustment to bring it inline
with current functionality.I committed the changes I have made to the help. Let
me know if you want to do this or want me to.
We should create a "default" -q object in the folder,and
in the help reference that a shadow may be placed inI will add the -q object. A template is probably overkill.
Startup, or create a template in the Templates folder
which may then be modified to suit (overkill?).
Gotcha!'s strange UI layout is still annoying me withI added the Settings and help buttons for comment. I
Settings and Help duplicated on the window control
menu, and that menu being the only way to access
Program information. I dislike the availability of a
standard top menu, and then all of those buttons of
extraordinary size (though I realize that different
languages may need the room).
don't like these items on the sys menu either. I wanted
some feed back. I could put 4 buttons at the bottom:
Settings Close About Help
If we do that we need to decide on order. I can also
remove the buttons and leave this stuff on the menu.
I did try it with border less buttons for the capture
options which gives a much plainer look.

English is good, but there are the typical things I see in
Europeans' English writing, such as spaces before
punctuation ("files in directory ..."). Some other phrasesnext
(including that one) could be improved. The same
comment applies to the help. I'll look at these in the
few days.I committed the changes I have made to the dialogues.

update WRC to get it to work.) While the ~ is translated
into an underline you need to add the ALT+ whatever to
the accel table for it to actually work.
Conflicting mnemonic (almost): On the window controlstates

ALT+E as the accelerator (uppercase, no less, yellingat

Settings:What do you mean not all?
A proper Properties notebook should have a Default
button to return the page settings (not all!) to defaults
(which may not be the same as the last batch of
settings, thus differentiating "default" from "undo").
RFE for a future revision would be a browse button to

Help needs some text concerning the various imageOK
formats. I had planned to add this to Lucide's GBM
plugin help. Hopefully, the same text will be useful for
both. (I will do this.)
Mnemonic conflict: Force / format.It says Snap!. I now see how it works but don't really see
"snapshot window" was a poor choice for this object
because reading the help, I now understand what that
annoying little square is down there. I first interpreted
this to means some sort of preview window. Silly me.
The object itself is kind of wonky. I don't know what it's
supposed to say in it. It looks like the Language Viewer
the point. If it is set to "window" when you click on it you
get the same behavior as pushing the window button on
the main window. You can size and move it. It might
make sense as an XCenter widget.
Missing mnemonic: Serial capture timer setting. I would
suggest the "e" in "every" - but that's just me. Again, I
can look at the message file.
This is the only settings page with a bitmap on it, which
seems oddly out of character.
Obviously, the content needs updating. the OK button
oddly sized and placed, with no mnemonic.I will redo the about dialog and fix the mnemonics.
Why does the title of this window have to enclose
Gotcha! in quotes?
Comments on the items below tomorrow (long day).
In all, this is looking really good, now, Gregg. Thanks for
your work on it. I've spoken with Rich. Hopefully, he'll
back to me shortly, too.
