I received a few queries about this so I thought I better just make a quick statement: Window Clippings 2.1 works great on Windows 7.
I’ve also updated the website to point this out.
When can we expect v3, BTW?
Good news, kenny!
Is there also a portable version available?
anonym: No ETA yet I’m afraid.
Peter: In the next version. The best I can offer you at this point is to use a .reg file to register automatically.
It does indeed work perfectly on Windows 7, with one fairly minor cosmetic problem. When dragging a selection or refining a crop, the "elastic band" is not visible.
Steve: Yes, it’s due to a bug in Windows 7 that only presents itself on some video cards. If it becomes a problem I’ll release a patch otherwise I’ll continue with WC3 which provides a completely new capture surface. [Also, I fixed your name in the comment.]
I'd like to suggest it come with a "Send To Printer" on the right-click. Looking forward to your new release, since I use it all the time. :) It's a handy tool for getting images of apps to put together documentation, among other things.
Actually this isn't entirely true. When trying to capture a program window full screen it will also capture the Windows start menu and taskbar.
ToddH: The Window Clippings 2.x releases were not really focused on capturing maximized windows. Windows 7 is no exception. It is however a popular request that I’m considering for the next release.
